Has Evan's lost his Underdog persona??

I think in most circles Rashad has been considered the Underdog in pretty much all of his fights save a few.

I'm curious, does everyone think this stigma will be lifted now? The talk seems to be leaning that way?

I still see him as an underdog simply because he is far from a complete fighter, a fact which should really scare some people in the LHW division considering what Evans has achieved. Hell it should scare them all even more because he is one of those fighters who really is evolving and not just said to be to hype fights.

How long can Dana keep overlooking Macheda for? Personally I don't like him but he has earned it.

He is no longer the underdog in his fights. He's still undefeated, had KO'd Chuck, beat Forrest....

Lets see how being a favorite treats him. For some people, not being the underdog changes things for them and gets into their head.

When he starts engaging and stops running around the ring.

Not sure if he did, IMO he'll definitely be the underdog against Page if the fight happens.

It's not often the Champion is the underdog.

I think if Dana wants Machida top get a shot, but not win the title, now is the time

I think Rashad would beat Machida, but I'm not sure anyone else will, except Rampage...
