Evans will never be champ!, the LHW division is now full of fighters that are better than him, he only just beat Bisping on points who is a physically limited MW, yes he KOd Liddell but Jardine beat Liddell then lost to the likes of Alexander.
Put it this way, Hamill would test Evans, T. Silva would destroy Evans standing IMO, Machida would just destroy him with crisper strikes and better movement, Henderson could beat him, Franklin would beat him, I honestly think that Evans has got as far as he is going to get as there are just too many hurdles out there for him, Just wait til Shogun unloads on him if they ever fought.
Can you see Evans ever being able to become champ?
I never thought I would say this but this thread is one big gigantic FAIL!
No offense dude but this post is moronic.
Like everyone else said, Rashad isn't fighting Shogun, Hamill, Franklin, Henderson, or Machida! He's fighting the current LHW champion for the title. Unlike the other fighters you just names (with the exception of Machida) Rashad worked up the ladder and earned his shot. So to say he will never be champ is a bit much at this point.
and then there is this....
he only just beat Bisping on points who is a physically limited MW, yes he KOd Liddell but Jardine beat Liddell then lost to the likes of Alexander.
This has to be the worst MMA math yet. Jardine was coming off a win against Forrest Griffin, who is the current LHW champion, before he fought Houston. A KO win against Forrest showed that the dude is a solid fighter.
Also, Chuck may have lost to Rampage and Keith but he rebounded when he got a win off of Wanderlei Silva. You remember him right! So its not like Rashad was fighting a broken down Chuck Liddell.
