Rashad vs Rampage will be awesome.

Rashad is a slow starter he doesn't score points well at all standing. In fact he's lost a round in every UFC fight except for Lambert and Salmon and he didn't look good in round 1 of either of those fights.

Against a guy like Rampage with that kind of power being a slow starter could be really bad.

However I'm picking Rashad. Rampage really is bad off his back. Luckly for him the UFC LHW division is full of guys who strike but if Rashad takes him down with the power he packs even as small as he is Rampage would be in trouble.

This fight makes me so happy just because it's so interesting they are both so fun to watch standing and their styles mix perfect.

WTF is wrong with this poll, 54% + 48%

I'm picking Rashad too, especially if they fight at UFC 98. I think he can take Page's shots and can out point him standing using his speed and movement. Too bad he doesn't use leg kicks as much as Keith though. Rashad displayed some very good top game against Forrest and if he gets on top, Page could be in "trouble". However the same thing could be said about Rashad as Page's GnP is vicious and we haven't much of Rashad's game while at the bottom. Lastly, the fact that Jardine already fought Page will be of great help IMO.

I see Rashad losing the 1st round or 2 and winning the later rounds or getting a late ref stoppage.

Rashad via UD or late TKO.

If Rampage fights the way he fought last night, Rashad is going to win for sure. He didnt look bad last night but he never showed me anything to think that he is good enought to beat Rashad.

Im thinking Rashad should beat him, but then i remember what Rampage did to Chuck Liddell twice, and what he does to counter punches, he really is a counter punchers worst nightmare,

And i think we are gonna see a Rashad who will only wanna stand, and i think Rampage might end his night.


....Then Machida becomes the champ

Rashad will most likely beat Rampage IMO. I think he has comparable KO power, but does it about 10 times faster. I also think his wrestling is above and beyond Rampage's by a mile. Unless, Rampage scores a flash KO, he loses this fight in every scenerio if you ask me.

But it's all relative anyway since these are all just motions until Machida gets his shot.

No, I don't think Rashad's KO power is comparable to Rampages really, we know Rashad can hit hard when he powers up but Rampage is, aside from probably Carwin, P4P the hardest puncher in the UFC. He's got big KO power in both hands and better technical boxing than Evans IMO.

And while Rashad has a better wrestling pedigree than Rampage, his wrestling isn't even on the same level as Kevin Randleman's. Go and watch the Randleman - Rampage fight cos Quinton showed both excellent TDD and clinchwork which IMO, is what's gonna win him this fight. That's provided he comes in fresh of course.
