For the ppl saying they would have liked to have seen 2 more rounds because thiago would have won, how exactly do you work that out, if he was too spent to finish his opponent when he had him rocked in the 3rd?

some moronic posts here

2nd wind, 3rd wind...

Looks like Silva might have had a back injury going into this fight. If that was true, a rematch would change my opinion on a rematch. Silva would wreck Evans.

Lol @ 2 punches in the final round warranting a rematch. Thiago wasn't confident standing with Rashad at all and it made the take-downs that much easier. If Rashad didn't fall into boasting so often he wouldn't have even gotten hit in the last round.


Rashad in a rematch would just come out with the same GSP game plan and win again. Very unimpressive showing from Thiago.

It is pretty absurd. I'd usually find that funny but considering Rashad worked his arse off to ensure he got the win and thus set up the dream fight with Rampage I just find it disrespectful.

And the thread title is basically an euphemism for "I really want to see Rashad get KTFO".

Actually, that was going to be the title of my next thread, but you've ruined it now.

Anyway, I stand by my call for a rematch, which I think Thiago would take.

What's the point of calling for a rematch of a fight that was clearly won by either of the fighters participating? Just because you may not like who won doesn't mean it should be done again. Why should this fight take up space on an upcoming card? Why should I have to pay to see it? Who cares if you think Thiago would take it? He certainly did not take the last one, did he? Thiago was defeated, he needs to practice TD defense, and he needs to win a few before any rematch with Rashad would even be warranted.

Wow, you're pretty hostile.

The only person who came close to conclusively (out of the judges hands) winning that fight was Thiago. On points, Rashad won and I have said as much. I think after all Rashad did that Thiago can make enough changes to his game to beat Rashad. The take downs didn't really bother Thiago, he got up pretty easily every time.

There are numerous fighters who have lost an initial meeting with a fighter due to ko or sub and have come back and dominated in rematch - now, why did they deserve a rematch after being submitted or ko'd and Thiago doesn't after almost knocking his opponent out? What is your criteria for a rematch then?

It is possible to see a fighter lose and know that he can come back and beat his opponent. It has happened numerous times.

I'm not hostile. Your previous post and your call for a rematch is just ridiculous. I don't want to see a stream of the same match ups because someone thinks the person who lost should have won. My criteria for a "quick" rematch would be a bad decision by judges, which this was not.

Well, if you think the post is ridiculous, which is your opinion, then exercise some restraint and don't respond to it.

If Thiago has won the fight and there was a call for a rematch I certainly wouldn't be behaving like you. Really, I wouldn't have a problem with it.

I have every right to respond to your post.

If Thiago won the fight in convincing fashion, I would react the same way to someone calling for a rematch on behalf of Rashad. In my opinion, it is insulting to the fighter who clearly won. You are in essence saying that Rashad did not win well enough, does not deserve the W, and must do it again.

Also, how is "almost knocking his opponent out" any different from almost submitting his opponent? Neither really counts for anything. He didn't knock his opponent out, and that is the fact here.

I also have a problem with your saying that Thiago can make enough changes to his game plan to beat Rashad, because it sounds like you are implying that Rashad learned nothing from their fight, would implement no changes, and return to the cage and execute the exact same plan when he has stated that he made mistakes after his take downs.

Rashad proved that he is the superior fighter, so he moves up on the ladder, and Thiago moves down. Thiago now has more to prove than Rashad. Should Thiago win some and Rashad lose some, then they would obviously meet again, but until such time, I find any suggestion of a rematch disrespectful to Rashad Evans.
