My head says Rashad but my heart says Rampage. I thunk Rashad takes it but I wouldn't be surprised if it went the other way. I see Machida beatin either before the year is out though.

I hope he gets a good rest and comes in with a better arsenal cause he looked really one dimensional against Jardine despite the take downs. It looked like he came out for a kickboxing match, its shocking how similar he fought like Chuck.

I think Rashad it seemed like they had a good gameplan last night for Rampage (Jardine that is) and now that it's over Evans should have an almost perfect blueprint going into this fight.

TBH, I don't think Rampage will be able to keep up with the pace and that Rashad brings. Coupled with his speed, power, movement and solid chin, it could be a bad night for Rampage.

Like I stated earlier Rampage is extremely flat footed, robotic, never checks kicks, and is always looking to throw power shots. He's very predictable. If he can catch Rashad clean he can put him away but again the way Rashad moves and the volume of shots he can throw in comparison to Jackson will be the deciding factor. I also think Rashad is the better wrestler.

i'm leaning in this direction as well....rashad has too many tools and I think i'd pick him.

Their styles are very similar; the difference is that Rashad has more speed whereas Page has more power. I guess whoever can implement the best game plan and execute it will win.

TBH I think it depends on when it takes place. If it goes ahead at 98 as planned then I'd pick Rashad cos Rampage looked pretty slow and a lot more flat-footed than usual last night, I really think he needs some rest-time. Then again people never look that good against Jardine (unless they finish him in the first minute) so it could have just been Keiths style throwing him off.

If something happens to delay the fight and Rampage can get some rest and then a good training camp then I'd pick him to stop Rashad. If Rampage can get his cardio up to where it was in the Henderson fight then I think he can outlast Evans cos I've never really been impressed with Rashad's cardio. I think a good rest combined with a good training camp will bring Rampage coming into this fight sharp and with the gas to go 5 harder than Rashad.

If it's at 98 then I'll take Rashad by UD or maybe some sort of late stoppage but if it gets put back a month or 2 then I think Rampage will stop him some time in the third cos I think he's a better boxer with a lot more power and I think he'd be the fresher fighter at that point aswell.
