Just Watched Rashad Vs Brad Imes For The First Time..

And man what a great FIGHT!!, seriously underrated. Rashad deserves a lot of credit, the size difference was vast but he went toe to toe with Imes with both guys rocking each other a few times. check it out if you haven't seen it and post some fights you think are underrated.

Great fight, true. Not trying to stir anything up here, but last time I watched it I though Imes did enough to win. Thank God the judges gave it to Rashad though. Can you imagine Imes in the UFC nowadays?

Wish I could rep your more than once, Guy. That was indeed a great fight. Probably the most thrilling fight Rashad has ever had. It was a VERY close fight, but Rashad I felt did JUST about enough to beat Imes. He rocked Imes and dropped him on more than one occasion. Oh man, no guy has made me want to go and watch that fight, lol.

You guys also have to remember that Rashad was an out of shape LHW/MW posing as a heavyweight. I couldn't believe the sheer size difference when I first saw that fight. No matter how anybody feels about Rashad, you MUST respect this performance.

damn good fight.

shows you how much power Rashad packs. Thats why I dont believe he'll get "manhandled" by Jones like most people are stirring up

u would think the ufc would play up to that and give rashad the underdog gimmick but they decided lets still refer to forrest as underdog even when hes the champ goin against a smaller challenger

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

Definitely one of my favorite Rashad fights. He's improve leaps and bounds since then, but this fight was certainly a David Vs Goliath match. It was a close fight but Rashad edged out I think, Imes got rocked more.
