Nice HL vid of the fight.

Different wrestling technique IMO Rashad uses more of a double leg style and Hendo was more about Tieing up greco style and going for knee taps and such. If Rashad shoots while Rampage is countering wildly he may get page to the ground, but the question in my mind is will Rampage be able to get back up quickly.

JUST FOUND A VIDEO OF HENDO /RAMPAGE. I KNOW ITS ONE FIGHT. BUT RAMPAGE POWERED OUT OF EVERY TAKEDOWN.
hendo is a world class wrestler. does this change your mind?? hendo is also a good striker with a bag load of experience..
jusyt my ahole opinion.

Henderson =/= Evans

Rashad is a lot quicker and younger than Henderson. Plus if you want to look at the "Who they beat" terms, what about when they fought Forrest Griffin? Who has the upper hand then?

IMO history really doesn't matter though. Its all about who comes prepared when its time to fight. The way that Rampage was looking at Rashad at weigh-ins, he is completely focused and really wants to destroy Rashad.

I see this fight going two ways. If it goes the distance, Rashad wins split decision. But I could also see both of them knocking one another out.

Hendo's wrestling is so overrated it is disgusting. Did you watch the Shields fight? Dude couldn't stuff a 1 leg takedown or get up from under a smaller opponent...

I don't think Rashad will be working for the takedown though, not unless he is losing the stand up. He is going to try and get Rampage throwing bombs and then use his superior speed to knock him out.

Hendro is a GR wrestler, he doesn't have a shot like Rashad. Pretty pointless comparing them really. We all know Rampage has wrestling and is strong, but Rashad has the same to an extent too, and good technique could allow him to get enough takedowns to win a decision. It does show how strong and able Rampage is to neutralise a wrestler, and although it doesn't prove his worth against Rashad's style, I think the same will be true in this fight.

I think brute strength and power will be on Rampage's side, and combined with his wrestling will make it extremely difficult for Rashad to take him down or keep him down.

Rampage by TKO.

People need to stop lumping every form of wrestling into one category. There are many different styles of wrestling; guys like Couture and Henderson use Greco-Roman style which focuses on tying up with body locks, guys like Machida use Sumo style which focuses on pushing with leverage, and guys like Rashad and Rampage use the folkstyle you see in American college and high school wrestling which focuses on shooting for leg takedowns more than anything else.
Just because Rampage was able to handle Hendersons Greco wrestling doesn't mean he can handle Rashads folkstyle double leg takedowns.

Hendo: Upperbody greco roman wrestling.

Rashad: Lower body takedown specialist.

That's why you can't compare this to the fight on tonight.

Rashad doesn't have any technique he just tries to run guys over and fall ontop of them. He fails miserably against anyone with TDD because he isn't a good wrestler.

Rampage is the better more well rounded wrestler. He can hold his own in the greco clinch with Hendo, stuff prime Randleman's shots, and take Chuck down with ease. Rampage is also stronger and has a better base seriously where are people getting this crap about Rashad being some great wrestler from.

He has effective wrestling against shitty wrestlers, until the third round when he gasses because he relies so much on explosiveness instead of technique.

This and who know Rampage might go for some take downs himself. How embarrassing would it be for Rampage to beat Rashad at his game then knock him out standing.

Osmium owns, especially if you imagine him saying what he says with his avatar's expression.
All though I quite often disagree with him, his rants are priceless and make me crack up.
Carry on osmiumsimsusmisium. :thumbsup:

I disagree with taking drugs to treat ADHD so I am hoping one day you can overcome your illness with mental exercises and be able to read more than a sentence. Good luck, I'm rooting for you.
