Rashad fought a smart fight. The fact is, the man had everything to lose in this fight, and nothing to gain, only to maintain.
Had Rashad lost last night, not only would he have lost a fight he was suppose to be the favorite in, he would have fallen dramatically in the ranks, and worst of all he would have lost the Rampage fight.
So what did he do, he turned to the one area he knew Silva could not compete with him, wrestling. Boring, safe, whatever you want to call it. It was the smart move without question.
