Thumbs up Babalu vs. Rashad Evans

A couple months ago Babalu asked the UFC for Rashad Evans, no source just hearsay, and rumor has it that Rashad Evans' next fight will be against Babalu Sobral.
What do you all think of this fight? Is Rashad ready for a guy as talented as Renato Sobral? Is he overrated? Can he avoid the submission?

I would say Babalu submits Rashad. I just don't think his ground game is good enough and he's going to have to Chuck Liddell him to win this, IMO... a decision would be doubtful, but if Evans can get there, he has a shot. Thoughts?

renato by sub, no lay and pray on him

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.

I think the Biggest problem Babalu will have with Evans is trying to out muscle him for a lot of the submissions. I expect that a lot of Babalu's take downs will be defensive rather than looking for times to shoot. Although I hate the Rashad Dance I think he will pull out a decision do to the fact that Evans is more of pusher and will bring the fight to Babalu. With Babalu unable to muscle in a submission time will just run out. I'm not saying that Babalu could submit Evans (Babalu has some wonderful submission skills) I just think the fight will end up being a whole lot of hugging and fighting for take downs and submissions that don't end up going anywhere. I score it about 50:50. I think it will all depend on who takes the center of the ring and pushes harder.

Winnable fight for Rashad. He is powerful and fast and would be difficult to submit. I would love to see this fight. Rashad by decision.

hmm... I'm not (yet?) a fan of Rashad. I see a submission win by babalu, maybe a quick armbar while Rashad is trying to GnP.
