I can't say if Rashad has a better chin than Forrest as his chin has not been tested but Forrest's chin is simply average. Even Forrest himself admits this. Rashad could definitely KO Forrest if he lands a clean shot.

Of course, he can. The same think I was expecting from Shogun and Rampage, they failed and Evans will.

Good luck Rashad but im praying Forrest works you over buddy. No offense to Rashad but he would make a terrible champ the dude has pretty much zero charisma. He has the skills to take this but im hoping Griffins reach, height and skill will just be too much for Rashad.
That makes two of us.
Quote:
Should be a good fight, but I don't like the idea of Rashad with the belt so I hope he gets choked out by Forrest. ^^
100% agree. Just imagine Rashad Evans is LHW champion against #1 contender Lyoto Machida, man, UFC will never sell this PPV if it's main event

I'm pulling for Griffin but put a small bet on Rashad. He has pretty good wrestling and decent stand-up along with good power. He is also very good at faking dudes out. Along with the odds I couldn't resist.

Forrest's going to grind Rashad out inside the clinch and on the ground, then submit him in the later rounds. How can you doubt someone who raped Shogun and beat Rampage?

They also don't know Anderson Silva and others, but it's harder to idenify with them because he's Brazilian and whatnot, although there is a connection. Randleman.. come on now. Rashad is like, the only real down to earth black guy from america who's about to champion, and that can help bring in a larger audience.

I agree and im white. I still think Forrest will slowly knock him down though.

I like both guys and on paper, it would seem that Rashad has the advantage in almost all areas, but anything can happen and Forrest is a crafty bastard who is somewhat hard prepare for.

If the fight is on the line in the 4th and 5th rounds, you would put your money on Forrest.

Why am I hearing so much stuff about charisma?? Is this not MMA? I thought this sport was about fighting and trying to be the best and fight the best. Who cares about charisma.
