Paul Buentello hits harder and faster than Chuck Liddell’

Rashad Evans was our guest on this weeks broadcast of Pro MMA Radio. Presented by, Pro MMA Radio airs live every Monday night at 9pm and features many of the top fighters from the UFC and beyond.

Also on the show, Editor and Senior Writer Jesse Holland compared notes with host Larry Pepe on the Affliction/Golden Boy announcement as well as their picks for UFC Fight Night 15 “Diaz vs. Neer”.

The main attraction of course was Evans, who covered everything from his upset win over Chuck Liddell at UFC 88 to the infamous ‘Nipplegate’.

What I found interesting about his comments on Liddell was not just that he swung the overhand right a couple of times prior to the one that connected, but that the Iceman may possibly have a tell: A menacing facial expression just prior to striking.

Talk then shifted to life at the Jackson camp and I was surprised to hear Evans say that Paul Buentello hits harder and faster than Liddell. I know many fans may disagree but how many of us can say they’ve been hit by both men?

Rashad also maintains that he will never fight teammate Keith Jardine under any circumstance. I guess once was enough for those two when they clashed on The Ultimate Fighter Season 2. Speaking of TUF, none other than MMA Legend Dan Severn was instrumental in getting Evans a spot on the final roster.

His tenure on the show was a little tumultuous thanks to coach Matt Hughes. While he says the two are ‘cool’ now, he does admit that Matt’s showboating accusations have made that stereotype difficult to break.

I wonder if we’ll see more of that from Rashad’s brother, who will be a contestant on the upcoming season of TUF 8?

Tito is one fighter Evans would like a rematch with after “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” tried to punk him in front of his wife at a UFC show.

Finally there’s ‘Nipplegate”, the strange but effective method of playing “Tune in Tokyo” with one’s self. I would get into the graphic details but hey, that’s what the replay is for. Take a listen!

And then he says people don't like him because he is black.
No, Rashad, people don't like you because you're arrogant and disrespectful, and Lidell is one of the favourite fighters of most MMA fans. If you keep saying things like that people will hate you even more.

I cant stand rashad

I can't speak on the difference between the power of Liddell or Buentello, because I'm a fan of both.

But I really don't like anything about Rashad Evans.

I'd love to see him get knocked out by basically anybody.:thumbsdown:

Well i mean is anyone suprised by this??

Paul Buentello in all fairness should definently hit harder then chuck liddel. He first of all has alot of weight on chuck liddel and on top of that he isnt a bad striker. In his last 18 fights 13 of them have been by tko/ko. The man might have started out being a submission fighter but now his hands definently have been doing more of the talking.

Another thing

Man Rashad is a punk, i can't belive theres still that damn suga train here. Rashad seems to be disrespecting Liddell left and right and tbh chucks loss says more of Chuck then it does of Rashad. Seriously if that tell is in fact true then Rashad needs to stop trashing Liddell and start commending the real man who won that fight, Greg Jackson.

Rashad is going to feel the hard side of Karma coming his way real soon if he doesnt keep quiet. I never liked the guy and i DEFINITLY dont like him anymore since his recent dumbassed comments. Ohwell I hope Forrest subs his ass. Forrest held his own in Tito's gaurd and defended Tito's takedowns well. I dont see Rashad being able to impose his wrestling any better than Tito did on Forrest especially since Tito was a way better fighter back then despite the knee injury.

Rashad better not get KO happy and go looking to knock Forrest out either because Forrest will out work him for the UD. All around I think Forrest has more tools and should SUB Rashad in the fourth or take the Decision. But as usual im probably wrong.

Way to douche out Rashad. Never really minded him before but this past month he has turned on the ass big time.

ToeZup 09-17-2008 08:56 AM

Wow he won't quit with Chuck comments. I also saw that interview where he said people don't like him because he's black. I haven't been a big fan of Rashad. This stuff doesn't help that much.

I agree that he's jib-jabbing a bit too much lately, maybe his win over Liddell has gotten to his head. But am I the only one on this forum that actually LIKES Rashad? I don't know why, but I just think he's so different than every other fighter out there. I see nothing but these cookie-cutter fighters that all look, act and fight the same way...but not Rashad. He just stands out for some reason, and despite whatever quirks about him that seem annoying to people, he's one of my favorite fighters.

I don't know...maybe I'm just loosing it. I'll go ahead and prepare for some neg reps after this...
