I didn't think of that. I sure as hell hope it's not an interim title fight, but Rashad didn't seem too eager to have a non title fight the last time. His last fight was in May 2010...

huh.... what??

Soooo this will prove that Rashad could beat the fighter he was 3 years ago?

That's harsh of me to throw at Davis, but seriously?? This is the match-up?

I thought this thread was a troll thread for sure. Guess not!

I wonder what Rashad thinks about the consequences to his "brand" will be after this fight.

Anyways I just had to air my bad opinion of Rashad again but that's where it ends for this fight. If Davis' last fight is any indication of where he stands in the LHW ladder then we're going to see Rashad knock him out. I'm saddened to see Davis take this fight as he seemed to have identified that he needed to do a lot of work and would be taking some time off from actual matchups.

I hate to be a conspiracy theory guy but I smell a lot of politics involved in the LHW picture.

Well THIS SUCKS!
FU#^*~*%$%#&$@CKING CRAP!

I was looking forward to Jones sending Rashad to Vera's doctor to repair a broken orbital.

Honestly i don't know how much does for Jones' schedule though.
His fight with Rashad was supposed to take place in September/october annyway. With this injury, i suppose his 1st title defense will take place in November/December maybe...?!

Rusty is cool. I don't wanna send him to school, unless it's a college campus full of hot girls.

Annyway, i'm gonna root for Davis in this one.
And i have a feeling it's gonna be a wrestling match + 90% of it.

I f*cking hope NOT! It makes no sense! It's not like Jones is out for 1 year (at least i hope not)!
They were supposed to fight at the end of the year, something that could still happen.

Basically this is a No.1 contender's fight imo.

Because Rashad is such an elite striker, right?! LOL

Nogueira is a much better striker than Rashad and Davis managed to shut him down.

Evans vs Davis will be a wrestling match.

This stinks, and is all wrong for Davis, despite it being a 'great opportunity'.

Seriously, the UFC will have screwed this up big time, and Davis will no doubt feel he can't say no to such an offer, for fear of recrimination.

Couldn't we maybe have seen Evans/Griffin 2 or Rampage/Evans 2 instead, later this year ?

Also, if Jones injured his hand in the title win, why has it taken until now for all this to occur ?

Such a lame match up. I'm surprised Evans even accepted this. Aside from an easy win, he has nothing to gain from this. Nothing.

I agree that he don't have much to gain from this, but it at least keeps him active against decent comp. while he waits for Jones.
