rashad got lucky to survive that third round against silva ... rampage would smoke rashad for sure!

btw. i like rashad but he became a boring fighter again!
with another scoring system he would have lost that fight.
He didnt do anything except of the takedowns but didnt manage to hold thiago down ... i am very disappointed!

WAR RAMPAGE

That performance by Evans convinced me that Rampage would beat him pretty easily.

He was afraid to engage on the feet with Silva, he only engaged to look for TDs, but Rampage has more KO power than Silva imo. Add to that the fact he would not be able to control Rampage with his wrestling like he did to Silva. Im pretty confident in saying Rampage would KO Rashad within two rounds.

Omg, see this is what's stupid. Rashad did engage with him ffs but he mixed it up with wrestling. In fact, I believe Rashad outstruck Thiago in the 1st round. All I saw was Thiago backing up and clinching.

Rampage will KO Rashad pretty easily???? And you came to that conclusion because he got rocked by a fighter with heavy hands himself???? Give me a ******* break, man. Seriously.

Why Do We Fall?

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.

Your man-love for Rashad needs to stop.

The only time he engaged standing was to get the TD. He never stood toe to toe until the last round when he was kind of tired, and thats when he got tagged.

Neither fighter landed anything significant until the second. Mainly because Rashad didn't want to stand and trade with Silva. And hey, that was the smart way to go. He had the wrestling advantage and he used it.

Rashad has been rocked pretty heavily in his last two fights by Machida and now Silva. If Silva didn't take a breather when he had Rashad on queer street he could have finished imo.

Rampage has a history of KO wins. Rashads been getting rocked. It's not an impossibility he gets KO'd

Finally somebody with intelligence. Had Rashad stood there trading punches with Silva for all those rounds and gotten knocked out, people would be calling Evans stupid for not using his wrestling, just like in the Machida fight. Seriously most MMA fans are just plain dumb. Don't know a thing about fighting and think they know everything. Griffin was right about the fans.

I didn't say it was impossible for Rampage to knock Rashad out. But you make it sound like Rampage will walk all over Evans and that is clearly not the case. So Rashad's been rocked in his last two fights? Rampage got rocked in his last fight too. In fact, Rampage needed to get his jaw checked after that fight with Jardine, didn't he?

And a history of KO wins don't mean shit. Thiago has a history of KO wins and look what happened to him.

Why Do We Fall?

What, he had to be UD'd because Evans KNEW he couldn't finish him. Evans won't be able to take down Page at will, we all know that. Page has more KO power than Silva does. Once he connects, evans will be in LALA land just like he was with Machida and Silva.
This delusion about Evans having a chance is just getting silly. We all know you have a man crush on him, so just keep living in fantasy land until May or June. Don't say we told you so.

lol@ the responses in here.


Thiago landed 2 significant shots the whole fight. Kinda like those shots Kongo gave Cain....yeah they were hard and may have won the battle, but ultimately they didnt win the war.


lol@ everybody downplaying Rashad's performance.
