I agree that Rashad should win, but he is not better in every area. Davis is a better grappler.

I don't think Davis will be able to get the fight to the ground, and I think Rashad destroys him on the feet. Probably knocks him out.

In theory Davis is a better grappler but for actually applying wrestling in MMA I'm not sure there is a significant difference between him and Evans. I expect Evans to win this fairly comfortably.

The most impressed I have ever been with Evans was in his last bout, he looked good, but he was fighting Ortiz. The rest of the current top 5 would beat Tito a lot worse than Nog did IMO, so I don't rate Evans much from that fight.

Davis will test Evans, this is a tough fight to call.

Well... Rashad has one knockout punch power.
And Phil Davis hasn't fought too many top contenders in his carrer...

I think that fight goes to Rashad by TKO.

Well I certainly suspect that Davis has more heart than Jones does At least I would like to think so. And it's nice that he is confident and all. I just think that this confidence will get him as far as surviving for a decision result. I like the guy too, I really do. But he's up against my boy and unfortunately for Davis, Rashad's on a mission.

You see that UFC Undisputed 3 demo simulation of their fight? That's what i picture happening to Davis.

I don't see what Phil brings to the table that Rashad can't deal with. And don't say wrestling because Phil looked terrible with his wrestling against lil nog.

I wanna see Rashad win just so we can see him get wrecked by Jon Jones. Same goes for Sonnen. After all the trash talking, I just wanna see him get beat by Silva.

Give More.
Give everything.
Give blood.
