question- do you think he would beat tito.
Ok because he show boated? gimme a break, RAshad Evans shows nothin but respect to the guys he fights no one but Matt and the other guy had a problem with his show boating, did you see what he did after the Lambert fight? he was down on his knees seein if Lambert was ok holdin his hand and talkin to him, the guy doesnt talk any trash either.. Evans is a class act, and I dont care for an asshole like Matt Hughes opinion.. a guy who Carries ppl on his shoulders across the friggin octagon has the nerve to call someone else a showboater, Hes more then a good wrestler buddy all the boxing fans on this forum have givin him props for his boxing skills because he has good boxing skills, he has very good takedowns, he now has proven that he is capable of passing guard, so he doesnt have a good submission game.. alla sudden because Rashad Evans isnt the total package were gonna start complainin there are SOOOO MANY FIGHTERS that arent as versitile as Rashad is and Rashad isnt even complete! so why should he take all the heat for every problem that occurs in MMA?
Rashad vs Tito would be close, cuz Forrest gave Tito a fight and Rashad would run through Forrest. Tito's wrestling is quite overrated, it is good but it isnt great. Rashads wrestling is good and its only getting better, if Rashad were with Team Quest for a good while instead of the team hes with now id say that Rashad would beat Tito cuz i'd expect him to have better wrestling in that fight cuz his wrestling potential is past Tito's and Team Quest would help him reach his potential, Rashads standup is already better then Titos is.. submission game I really cant tell you, both have good submission defense (Bonnar is a sub fighter and couldnt catch Rashad in a submission and lord knows he was trying) both leave a lot to be desired in the submission game, Titos conditioning is way better so right now he'd prolly draw out a decision, right now it would probably go to Tito cuz Rashad isnt gonna finish him right away RASHAD EVANS ISNT EXPERIENCED ENOUGH TO DO SO, and Tito is very experienced.. Tito might get taken down a few times but as soon as he takes Rashad down the match might end by TKO or Tito will just win round after round. But this isnt a fight that I see Tito winning in the future, if Rashad keeps growing he will surpass Ortiz.
