Right I've discounted Rashad in his last two fights because I do not like him because he used to lay n pray and even though he has involved into an exciting fighter and seems like a cool dude, I still refuse to like him or join his bandwagon. So I pick him to win this fight because he has Ko'd his last two top tier opponents in style.

Now obviously because I have picked him he will get KTFO in round one.



Thanks to Plazz for the awesome sig

I think Evans vs Machida is a much more interesting matchup...

I also think Evans would beat Rampage, his hand speed is now his best weapon.

I accidentally voted for Jackson, though I think he doesn't stand a chance if he performs like in the Jardine fight. Yes, he won 2 out of 3 rounds, but Evans will not be such an easy target to hit.

[fanboy]Actually I don't care who wins, Machida is going to be champion anyway. [/fanboy]

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.
Good points. But the Randleman fight was in 2003, and I don't know if Jackson TDD is as good as it was back then. I'm leaning towards Rashad b/c Jackson is appearing one-dimensional. But to be fair to Jackson, he seems to have done well against wrestlers (Linland, Arona, Randleman, Henderson).

I think Rampage is too strong to be outwrestled by Rashad, but I could be wrong. Anyway, it should be a good fight.

I think Evans is a complete fighter and Rampage is one dimensional. Evans moves very well, great wrestler, and has very good power.

I honestly think Evans will take Rampage to the ground and make Rampage look silly.
