Problem is you have to make the guy respect your striking and I don't see Rashad hitting him once with anything on the feet except leg kicks and considering he only uses his ju-jitsu for positional control he's ****ed if Jones wants to take him down.
I don't think so, he has very strong grappling defense when on his back or pressed up against the cage. No one (After the Chuck Liddell fight) has been able to hold down Rashad and get any offense started, even while he was rocked.

To be fair Rashad hasn't really been fighting the best wrestlers since the Chuck, Davis is the best wrestler he's fought since but Rashad had such a huge advantage in other areas he was able to negate him entirely, not to mention Jones brings something different with his variety of trips and throws, will suplex guys if he has to and is a much, much better athlete than Phil Davis who seemed very sluggish in his fight with Rashad.

Haha, i can understand the beef from Rashad fans when it comes to Hendo waiting for the title shot Vs. Rashad doing the same.

However i think it's like this, Hendo doesn't have too many fights left, i can probably count how many more fights he will have on one hand, he has peaked and Hendo's last big chance is against JBJ, if he were to take a fight before and lose that is pretty much it with regards to title asperations and pushing his legacy on even more.

Rashad however is in his prime, possibly not even in his prime yet - I would love to think Rashad wants more and more fights to test himself against the best a minumum three times a year, i don't really want to hear about him waiting for fights.

That's just how i look at the situation anyway, Rashad isn't right to be waiting about, Hendo on the other hand can't really afford to lose.
