i think this match will be a slugfest. it should be very exciting, both being good strikers.. any thoughts on who will win??:

Should be a good fight, Rashaad probably has faster hands and Bonnar has the better submissions/ground game... My prediction is bonnar by submission

I think Stephan Bonner for this fight because if you remember Rasherd like Bonner came from TUF the difference being Bonner won all his fights because he was the better fighter where as Rashads opponents seemed to have no heart so i dont really know how Rashad will react to a real fighter.

In the fight between Staphan and Forrest, i was watching at home and i believe he shouldve won that fight so i forsee a bright future for Bonner and hopefully it starts with knocking out Rashad.

i disagree with you i think rashard would knock bonner out he is the stronger guy his hands are faster. it would be a good fight to say the least but my money would go on rashard i think in a slugfest rashard would destroy bonner if bonner could take him to the ground he might be in with a chance but sooner or later rashard would catch him with a devastatin flurry and take the fight

AS FAR AS I AM AWARE RASHARD HAS MOVED DOWN TO THE LIGHT HEAVY WEIGHT DIVISTION. WHITCH I FEEL IS A GOOD CHOICE AS HE WOULD MAKE A BETTTER LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT THAN A HEAVYWEIGHT:thumbsup:

I agree Rashad could be very good at light heavy. Cant wit for UFN. Looks like a very good card.
Rashad did look small at heavyweight, but then again, so does Brandon Vera. I think that Rashad will definitely have more control on the ground and have more damagin strikes in the lightheavyweight division, but will he ever get a title shot? Not as long as the Iceman's still KOing people.

I think he will have to go through alot of good fighters to get to Liddell. That division (light heavy) is by far the toughest one. Just look whos in that. You got Horn, Randy, Chuck, and the list goes on. Not to metion Vera could be in there to if he lost weight.

I didnt know Randy quit or did he retire. Also didnt know Horn droped to middleweight
Couture retired after Chuck iced him for the second time.

Horn fought his last fight at middleweight.

I was not terribly impressed with Rashad Evans except for his last fight on TUF. Stephan Bonner, OTOH looks like he has improved over the past year if his televised fights are a gauge. I'll pick Bonnar by submission (I don;t think Bonnar can knock Evans out)

Bonner by submission. mind you he is not by any means my favorite or do i think hes better than griffin. But again, so many factors, if it goes to the ground it looks like he knows what hes doing (though he did scramble a few times when Forrest was on the attack).
Well, i hope it goes atleast 2 rounds and ends by sub. :thumbsup:
