I dislike Rashad because he comes off as cocky.
After he beat Lidell he was asked if he was surprised by Lidell's punching power. I'm paraphrasing a bit, but his response was:
"Chuck hit me and I was like... That's it!?"
He didn't say Chuck never landed flush. Instead he implies that one of the hardest hitters in the UFC hit him with all he had and he was taken aback by the weakness in his punches.
He also claimed that people didn't like him because he is black.
These are just two examples of why I dislike Rashad. But he's a solid fighter and I think he will womp Griffin.
This is what has annoyed me in the past with Rashad, but I don't dislike him, just annoyed with some of the comments he has said in the past.
"When I hear athletes call themselves warriors, it does bother me a little bit. When I think of a warrior, I think of the Marines I've led in combat, those Marines that sacrificed so much...no showers, little food, no contact with their family, all for their love for their brother Marine and for their love for their country. That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann
