boodaddy614 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I don't think Rashad is too cocky I mean what fighter is NOT cocky? When have you seen a pre-fight interview where I fighter is like, "Oh I'm just gonna go in there and give it my best."? Every fighter is like, "I'm gonna knock him the F*&K out!" a little cockiness is great in my book I like confident fighters, but to put Rashad in with the likes of Tito Ortiz or (bleh) Junie Browining is just unfair. Brock Lesnar, B.J.Penn, Matt Serra, even Forrest Griffin have done things more cocky than Rashad. It's not smacktalkin if you can back it up.

Lol, quoted for truth. I really don't want this to spiral into a racial thing but got to say it's a bit suspect. I will never understand why people dislike Rashad because they don't understand it themselves. I know, I know what you're all thinking, 'Rampage is black yet he is loved by millions, hehe'. Well there is a big difference between Rashad and Rampage. I happen to like Rampage a lot, but he doesn't articulate himself as well as Rashad does.

He also isn't as well educated as Rashad. Instead, Rampage represents the more 'familiar' type of black American. The black American that most people grow up watching on television. He wears thick heavy chains and dresses like a hip hop star outside of the octagon. The type that talks with the slang and what not. I'm not saying this is a bad thing that Rampage talks that way, but it IS more familiar to people and I think that people are comfortable with that stereotypical notion of the black man.

Rashad by sharp contrast is a soft spoken noticably intelligent bloke who has also shown a Forrest Griffin like knack for being self-deprecating. He fights intelligently and his CV is full of high accomplishments. This type of black American is less familiar to people than Rampage's personality, and it seems the fact that Rashad is as good as articulating himself as he is at fighting seems to be what really gets under people's skin. Just my lousy two cents.
