You seem to forget that despite his flaws, Thiago Silva has VERY heavy hands. There is a reason why most of his wins are via KO. **** sakes, now everybody's on the 'Rashad sucks' bandwagon even though he executed a wonderful game plan and got a solid win.
FYI size doesn't mean you hit hard, even mentioning Brad Imes name to say Rashad has a good chin makes me want to cry
To the poster above me who says Rashad is going to throw leg kicks like Jardine, first off Rashad isn't a Kickboxer for one, neither does he have as long of legs as Jardine or Forrest so that's just stupid. If Rashad went in there throwing leg kicks over and over he's getting cought FORSURE !
Also you think Rampage will be in bad shape? Seriously dude what are you smoking? If you don't remember Forrest was almost as tired as Rampage at the end of their fight and Forrest is a cardio MACHINE! Tell Hendo Rampage is out of shape too while your at it !
NOT TO MENTION Forrest and Hendo were BOTH 5round fights, yet let's ask Machida how Rashad's cardio is in a 5round fight.. wait a minute
Also it's not like this is going to be a 5rounder so i'm pretty sure Rampage won't get tired. Not to mention Rashad is the easiest fighter to train for mentally other then Tito Ortiz.
If anything Rashad would be the one with bad cardio, he was tired in the 3rd against Silva and let's just say it wasn't the fastest paced fight we've ever seen.. not to mention Rashad was controlling the fight !
