Honestly, wtf are you talking about. Im not a fan of either Rampage or Rashad but that post you just submitted was just fkn rediculous.
1. I do agree that he was trash talking Rampage, and im sure we are going to see a lot of it if this fight happens, so deal with it.
2. Im a HUGE chuck Liddell fan and a Forrest fan, but im not making excuses for Chuck, Rashad had a gameplan and it worked perfectly, only way to say it. Also it wasn't Forrest's mistake, it was Rashad's pickup. He was the one who caught the kick and rocked Forrest. If they fought again i think Forrest can win, but he still lost the fight.
3. Tito was warned, and he grabbed that fence 100%. For all we know Rashad couldve got the TD and one that round 10-9, winning the fight, no point making excuses for fkn Tito.
4. He did beat Bisping, but he also showed some violent GnP against Lambert, an awesoem HK KO against Salmon and has also beaten Jardine (albeit TUF 2) and Stephan Bonnar, whether you like him or not he has a very impressive list.
So anyway, i have as much reason to hate Rashad as you do, but he's the champ and deserves respect.
I also think Machida will beat Rashad
Dude i agree he won against Chuck and Forrest but he was still getting beat for the main part of each fight. Im not taking away from it cause plain and simple he won but those are still his only two claim to fames.
Tito did get warned but all that aside reardless of the points getting taken away he was pretty much handed his ass in that fight.
And since when did Lambert and Salmon become a big addition to anyones records? Neither guy has looked even decent in a long ass time.
Ive never been impressed with Bonnar and he hasn't given me reasons to think i should be lately. Sure he showed heart against Forrest bu thats about it.
And to be honest i havent seen TUF 2 and its entirety so i dont know how the Jardine fight went. Im guessing by laying on him the whole time right?
Eitherway that was an exhibition match and only 2 rounds long. Im not saying Rashad isn't talented im saying nothing in his history warrants him getting into the ring after the ex champs victory and talking smack to him when rampage has fought and beaten so many more names than he has.
My post may be oppinionated but it doesnt mean it's not true. Im not debating annything youve said but fact is he needs to learn some respect. So why was my post ridicuous? because you disagree with some of my oppinions?
Its just plain and simple fact that Rashad doesnt have the history in the game that Rampage has and thats all im saying. It's respect dude plain and simple.
Even if you were to include Jardine in his list of big names it only makes 3 because I refuse to except Salmon and Lambert as impressive wins. Lambert has gone down in weight and Salmon has dissolved into obscurity.
Now take into consideration that Jardine was still young in his career and evelopin at the time and it was a 2 round fight and you may aswll not include it at all which leaves us again with his wins over Chuck and Forrest.
Now im no sure about Chuck because of age and speed but I think Forrest would take this in a rematch same as you.
