Rashad has a really good chin, and I dont think jackson would give him the same strategy that he had for Machida. I think he would take Silva down and try and pound him all fight. Saying that I think this fight could go Rashads way if he can keep it off the feet and win a decision. But ya he would probably get KOd lol

This is a very interesting fight, in my opinion.

This would not go down like Forrest vs. Anderson, as Rashad is a completely different fighter than Forrest.

First of all, Rashad has the wrestling ability to take Anderson down. Unlike Forrest, Rashad was at one point known to be a wrestler, and he was humbled in his fight against Machida, so he knows that striking isn't the best way to go against guys who are better than he is at striking. As such, he will try and use his wrestling get Anderson down and do what wrestlers do, control and damage from the top.

Standing it would be much harder on Rashad. With that said, though, he isn't slow like Forrest and after fighting Machida, he will have fought someone who has great timing and would at least have some experience fighting guys like that. Of course, if this was a striking battle, Rashad would most likely be finished at some point, but I see him using his speed just long enough to get the takedown.

I'd most likely pick Anderson to win this fight, based on the fact that he is looking unstoppable and if he can avoid the takedown, he will give Rashad a good beating.

As far as if the UFC has the power to make Lyoto fight Anderson, the answer is no. No fighter can be forced to fight the other if they do not want to. All the UFC can do is throw money at them and hope they take it.

I think Anderson Silva is just too good for Rashad. I think it would be over in the first. I think Rampage will beat Rashad. I don't see Rampage getting ko'd, but i think Anderson could rock him and then submit him. And Anderson is soon to be retired, so I don't think he would take a fight against Machida.

I would love to see this fight, simply because I'm not a fan of Evans. I don't really dislike him, mind you, but being a Forrest fan, it would be sweet to see a guy that beat forrest, made to look a fool like Forrest was. I'm an a**hole, what can I say

I said it a while ago if Rashad beat Rampage then he should fight Silva.

If Rampage wins, he should fight the winner of Machida/Shogun.

That said, Rashad's chin isn't good enough against Anderson. Yes, he took a crap load of punishment from Machida. If that were Silva, it would have took half the punishment to put Rashad down.

If Rashad really really hates being concious, then he should waste no time making this fight happen.

I guess it could be likely. It fits the matchmaker criteria in the sense of number one title shot.
It's 2 big names on a PPV. Rashad has expressed wishes to fight Anderson.
Anderson only wants big name fights.

Yeah- it's likely .

That's an interesting match up. I'll save my thoughts and analysis for when/if it gets announced.

But man my new fantasy has become Dana White forcing Lyoto and Anderson to fight. Sure he may be able to get them in the cage. But I would ******* LOVE IT, if both of them refused to do anything. I'm thinking both just sat down and talked for 25 minutes.

The look on Danas face- priceless!

That would be hilarious and I'd also love to see it but on the negative side that would be the end of both Anderson's and Lyoto's careers in the UFC.
