Maybe if enough people complain, Dana will scratch the fight.

Wouldn't be the first time. Though, I personally find some intrigue in the bout.

Really hope Davis wins this fight because he's a really likeble guy and he just looks like a monster lol. Think if Davis can get him down Rashad might struggle to get back up. Davis just seems so strong on the ground.


Come on Mr Wonderful !!!!

Jones may be out for a while, be interesting to see how it affects his rhythm.

This seems like strange matchmaking, but it is similar to the Jones situation where there was no one of higher ranking available to take Rashad's place, and right now Davis is just about the only guy coming off a win who's available.

I reckon Evans outworks Davis though, tires him out and wins via TKO or UD.

You realize he gassed in the 3rd round of his 2 last fights, right?

Wow, I don't even know what to think. Rashad isn't having the best year so far. Hopefully a win will change that. Man, this sucks in a way because I really really really really like Davis. Love his personality and like his grappling skills. But he is being thrust into such a spot far too soon. Respect him for taking on such a challenge, that shows balls, but Rashad's on another level at this stage in his career. THAT SAID...Davis can still cause Rashad problems. I think Davis is probably the more physical stronger of the two and I imagine he has good takedown defence. But Rashad's striking will get the better of him in a 5 round fight. Sorry Davis but gotta go with my boy on this.

This isn't a title fight.

You've got that the wrong way round. If any ones cardio is suspect, it's Shad's. I can see Big Phil tiring him out if any thing.

I personally think Rashad is a cardio machine. He only gassed out in his last two fights because he got tagged and was in huge trouble late.

His recovery time and heart showed class in both fights

Cardio Machines don't get tired, period. GSP, Nick Diaz, Diego Sanchez, Cain Velasquez, those guys are what you call cardio machines, they never show signs of tiring.

Rashad has on numerous occasions shown signs of gassing and tiring, he certainly ain't no cardio machine.

Kinda like what happened to Shogun against Jones, right?!
Getting tagged then gassing.....

Thanks for admitting this is possible.
