Anybody going to watch?
i might hit up a bar and watch it. i just don't like paying $50 to watch it by myself.
i'm guessing evans by decision. he's too smart to go blows with rampage.
all it takes is one clean hit from Rampage and he's done.. lol
I want Rampage to win but Rashad has a chance if his game plan is to take Rampage down. If Rampage is on his back.....Rashad's wrestling will dominate and he will win a terribly boring fight. But if Rampage stuffs the take downs.....watch out!
Rampage by TKO...
Rashad thinks his hands are better than they are. He's gonna try and come at Rampage like he did Machida. We all saw what happened there. In the 3rd round of the Rashad's fight with Thiago Silva, we saw Silva start to pick Rashad apart on the feet but by then his wrestling won him both rounds 1 and 2 before hand.
Rampage's wrestling is very good and very under rated. Rampage nullified Dan Henderson's wrestling in their fight. Rashad is not a better wrestler than Hendo. Rashad won't be able to take Rampage down like he did Silva and Rampage's striking is above Silva's.
Rashad's wins this fight no where...
We'll see. Rampage is a different fighter then he was in Pride (when he fought Hendo). And he has a different outlook on the fight (he's pissed off lol) so we'll see what that does or doesn't change. Plus Hendo is a light 205 IMO where Rashad is a bigger 205 which also may or may not play a part in the fight.
Hell....I hope Rampage knocks him out after all the crap talk Rashad did during the Ultimate Fighter series
They fought in the UFC. Hendo was Rampage's first title defense after he beat Chuck...
Oh......crap.....you be right! lol They didn't fight in Pride too?
No, they never fought in PRIDE. They actually trained together for a bit.
Evens is to smart and to fast, he will keep it on the ground, outsmart and outclass Rampage, and get a decision. Casual fans will hate it, purists will applaud his strategy
thats where my vote went too...
you see GSP knock anybody out lately? nope. and he's the most tactical (not best) fighter in the ufc.
the one dude i would not fuck with is Anderson Silva. that dude has no competition at all.
You guys underestimate Rampage's takedown defense. Not saying it's the best but it's good enough to counter Rashad's takedown attempts. I agree Rashad is very good at sticking to the game plan set by his camp but this time his "hate" for Rampage is going to cause him to try and go for a KO. Rashad's hands aren't good enough to box with Rampage. He will eventually get caught on the button if he tries to trade blows the entire fight.
Except flying scissor heel hooks
^^^ That was a crazy submission.....you are old school!!
I hope Evans trades with Rampage but I think he is going to stay close....give and take with the dirty boxing/grapple and then make an educated shot for a take down. I hope Rampage can stop what ever game plan Rashad has.
lol. Most people are just too slow for Silva(as far as strikes goes)....plus he's pretty powerful for a middleweight(IIRC his natural weight is like 220).
I am just all confused from all the fights I have seen. I have a friend that keeps me straight when I forget fighter names and such. I've had too many concussions lol.....serious.....3. But they were from hurting myself on a skateboard....wakeboard and once drunk (black out style) in college and don't remember riding my friends BMX bike home from the bar. Just remember telling him we were SO walking home....although he recalls me saying "I can't ride this damn board....lets trade!" I had a blood shot eye ball (for almost a month) and that eye's pupil was dilated all wrong for a few days lol....oh.....and water in my knees....couldn't run or jog for a month too lmao....CHICO STATE baby! Still have a dime sized scar near my eye to prove it......so I forget a few things now lol And I still don't know what I exactly did on the effing bike....neither does he...we were hammered off $2 pitchers.
That's how I roll baby
Are you still not drunk? That was waaaayyyy off topic lol lol.
okay....I was....a little lol
lol i guess im the only one that said evans by knockout
No....I voted for the knock out too......But Rampage! lol Thats what I "want"
Just worried about the grappling and dirty boxing for 3 rounds. I hope its not another boring fight like Shamrock and Severn with them both having under-hooks while they knee and punch each others mid-section. If that happens....I am pretty sure Rampage will end up on his back. But maybe he's ready for it and he'll get some distance....bob-n-weave and knock his ass out like Wanderlei!
