Excactly, so you admit Rashad was dominated ! lol This still doesn't mean Rashad has a good chin, I bet I have a terrible chin but not EVERY shot Mike Tison hit me with would knock me out cold.. that example might not be entirely true but you get the idea.
PS: In order for someone to argue something (or so you think "talk shit") then the topic must have been brought up first in order to cause a debate or ("shit talking" as you say) so since you are defending Rashad (debating) then you are shit talking as well in your eyes.

neither does he have as long of legs as Jardine or Forrest so that's just stupid.
Neither jardine nor griffin have rashad agility, footwork or head movement either.Whats your point?
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.
You arent coming across as someone intelligent here this isnt a gym rat we are talking about..This isnt a discipled dedicated fighter that strives to be the best by working on their craft..This is a guy that has got by on athletic gifts which are now diminishing..This is a guy that has said time and time again that he is only doing MMA for the paycheck..
If this fight with rashad is being scheduled for may that will make it 14 months since rampage last fought..Add in the fact that he probably isnt affiliated to any camp and I seriously doubt he has been travelling to wolflair to see the boys..So why you are harping on about past performances like he is still an active fighter today only heaven knows..

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

Rashad looked good last night, too tough of a fight for rampage coming off a year long lay-off.
Rashad-MachidaII is something I'm looking forward to, a 50/50 fight

The only thing that kept Rashad in the fight were the takedowns over and over, Rampage will stuff ATLEAST 50% of those, that's 50% longer the fight will be standing.. GG Rashad
Good way to look at it but before the Evans fight Thaigo defended 77% of the takedowns but it didn't seem to work well against Evans so he must be doing something right. Don't get me wrong though, I'm a Silva fan till the end and I just wish that fight went one more round.

imho, I think it depends on 2 factors.. Is Rampage back in fight mentality or movie star status? If Rampage comes thinking he'll win because he's now a big movie star Rashad will mentaly break him.. Other than that I really can't see Rashad winning especially after what Thiago Silva did to him last night.. Rampage has better boxing than Silva & just about as much or more power plus good wrestling. Rashad is going to have to play some crazy as mind games with Rampage first in order to distract him off point prfight. Because I'm sure if Rampage watched the fight last night he's laughing his ass off at how Rashad called him out after almost having been knocked out.

Maybe he will utilize that black belt in bjj to take Page down and sub him with a triangle choke.

If Silva wasn't gassed, he would have sealed the deal. He can thank his wrestling skills for taking Silva down at will and wearing him down, not his good chin.

I am not a fan of taking an opponent down, regardless of how many times, and not capitalizing on it at all. That being said, with the current scoring criteria, he managed aggressiveness and Octagon control for two solid rounds giving him the win. As far as 'dat doggy' it was the only chance Silva had, to bait Evans into a slug match, and it almost worked. Thiago needs to work on cardio and the sprawl. He does that well and a rematch if we ever see one goes much different.
