I wouldn't say he is the best we have in the UFC. I don't hate him but I don't like him either. And yes stop comparing him to Fedor, there is no one that can be compared to him. I hope Monson beats his ass.

becasue he's not that good he just has a lot of reach. if your fighting a guy whos 6'8 its always gonna be a tough fight. The fact that he was tested positv for sterioids made me loose respect for him as a fighter(even though that was a while back). He may be the coolest guy in real life but I dont like him very much as a fighter. I wouldnt go far enought to say that I hate him as a fighter becasue hes had a few good fights but the UFC overrates him and Rashad Evans IMO.

He isn't that good that's why. He fight's dorks. Arloski broke his foot in there last match so he would've killed him. He also has had some boring fight's. asserio was a shitty fight. He is just a really big guy. that's it.

Other then the fact that he treated us with a slapfest with Silva and Arloveski, the man has got a real ego trip going on. Its like if your not him or Matt Hughes then you are nothing as a fighter.

Silvia is a tough match up for Monson. But I hope Monson wins. I just can't stand watching Silvia lumber around the ring with his stupid legs and goofy feet. I'm pretty sure that's the reason nobody likes him.......either that or he's just to predictible/boring ;-)

thats where you're wrong. Some people actually would. Myself, I would tell him right to his face that I dont like him because he uses steroids and is a cheater. (Not trying to be a tough guy or anything, but its the truth.) What is he going to do? Knock out a 21 year old kid for telling the truth?

I dont like him for that very reason, I have no respect for anyone who does that crap, even if they do admit to it.

HE PROBABLY WOULDNT PUNCH YOU OUT BUT I STILL DONT THINK YOU WOULD DO IT..BARNETT GOT CAUGHT JUICIN AND NOONE HATES HIM..STEROIDS ARE ALOT MORE PREVELENT IN MMA THAN WE ALL THINK... SO I DONT HATE HIM FOR THAT..HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN JUICIN TO GET HIM THROUGH AN INJURY , NOONE KNOWS THE CIRCUMSTANCES BEHIND IT..THATS WHY I DONT HATE HIM FOR THAT..I DONT HATE HIM OR LIKE HIM, BUT IM STARTING TO RESPECT HIM

well I would tell him that.....I wouldnt be a **** about and cuss him out or anything lol, Id be as nice as possible and tell him. I'm sure hes heard alot worse in his day. My detest for cheaters extends outside of MMA, Bonds, Landis etc...

Theres alot of big fighters that aren't that good.

Look at Dan Mcgee and Brad Imes.

They're pretty freakin huge and they haven't fought in a long while.

I think Monsons going to win, i like his fighting style alot for the simple fact he's an animal. He goes out there and throws everything hes got. Wrestling, Stand up, submission he can do it all.

Might not have sylvia's reach but he's got really good take downs.


last post i'll make for a bit now, i get to have my teeth pulled lol

for some reason im more nervious now then i am when i fight lol

Rashad Evans

Rashad Evans definitely has potential. He has tremendous strength, heart and determination. All he needs is ground and finishing skills. If he will find someone with these attributes to take him under their wing, he will continue to be successful and be a true contender.

I give credit where I feel it is due. Sylvia beat an excellent fighter (AA) to become the Champion, I did not think he could do it and he did it. Everyone has a past and the fact that Sylvia once took steroids is unfortunate but I think hating him for that mistake makes one look a bit self righteous and holy than thou, I mean really, who likes cheaters? It sort of makes one look like a master of the obvious to say he should not have taken them. I don;t like Sylvia's fighting style but it gets the job done for him so why change it? I tend to like more well rounded fighters like Fedor, AA, Nogeuria.

I don't hate Tim because he used steroids and I like Barnett even though he juiced up also. I think people like Barnett even after he used roids because the UFC kick him out. People hate Tim because he was also busted but nothing happened to him.

I am pretty sure that you and I disagree on everything. Every time I post something, you post something completely opposite. I am not sure what that is about, but okay.

Heart: the courage to carry on. That is what I mean when I say heart. When a fighter is completely exhausted and he makes the decision to carry on, it can be said that that man has heart. Further, I am not sure what you meant when you wrote "lets wait til he fights someone good and gets cut". A fighter doesn't have to get cut to prove he has heart. When Rashad Evans fought Brad Imes he showed me had heart.

Agreed. Taking on Heavyweights is not easy. The only complaint I have about this guy is that he cannot finish a fight. He can get them on the ground but cannot put them in a submission.

Exactly. Like I said in an earlier post, if Rashad can get someone to take him under their wing for a while and teach him submissions and finishing techniques, he will be a true contender.
