    Smoked, shut down and beaten, neutralized use your word of choise. Jon Jones got that ass. I have come to the realization that Rashad's problem is mostly his size. He fights the way he does because he can't get inside unless someone rushes him like Chuck Liddel.

    The best way to beat Rashad is to keep him at distance. I consider Anderson Silva to be a better fighter than Lil Nog and Rashad had enough trouble with his amateur boxing skills last night.

    I have no reason to believe a fight against Silva would go any different than the fight Jon Jones. It should also be noted that Rashad is a better version of Phil Davis with better striking (as showcased already).

    Look at it guys, he does not duck tough fights--after seeing tht list you are crazy to think he ducks anyone.



    Now i will be the first to say ed fuckin soaresducks and talks shit becayse he does not want his cash cow to get beat. But anderson, imo, is not scared to fight anyone.

    The only thing you can blame on anderson is the fact that he has not fired ed yet.

    Neither Rashad or Davis would offer much of a challenge. Rashad just got smoked by JJ and couldn't even beat Lil Nog. The funny part is Davis got smoked by Rashad.

    Being a wrestler isn't good enough to seal the deal.

    No, but elevated testosterone has been known to help people become stronger...

    Anderson has very good defense, he is good at avoiding shots, but he has taken some good shots throughout his career. We dont know for sure how good his chin is, but it isnt glass atleast. Maybe not Hunt like, but who knows.

    You can blame Soares all you want but he is Anderson's mouthpiece. He represents Anderson and unless Anderson comes out and refutes Soares' statements you can take those at face value as coming from Anderson. While I don't believe Anderson is truly scared of anybody he certainly acts like a coward a lot.
    Hendo left for strikeforce and Nate lost in his very next fight to Sonnen, who Anderson then fought...

    Big fights always have to go through negotiations... Anderson was then upset because the fight was supposed to be in Brazil, and you should be able to understand that.

    Also, Silva's chin was criminally underated for a very long time. He has took a big shot from Hendo in the first round and walked right through it. Even shogun isn't putting Silva to sleep

    Me too. All new fights and questions without all the drama of negotiating new comers.

    Rashad, Shogun, Goose, Glover, Hendo with (more) cardio, and Jones... Lots of really fun fights. Jones being the only one I could see him potentially losing to, but fun fights nonetheless.

    Silva is a good fighter but I don't see him having the same success at lhw like he has at mw. Too many great wrestlers at lhw. As for Shogun and Silva, if he came in with a plan sort of like the Machida fights, it'd be a lot closer than ppl think imho. (Im referring to him doing his whole career at lhw, not a run at it now) He couldve definitely make a run at the title tho.

    Get your eyes checked and rewatch the 2nd fight with Sonnen, the fight with Okami, and the fight with Bonnar.

    He beat Hendo and Marquardt. Weidman isn't ready to fight, he's injured. When has he actually turned a fight down? He may have negotiated fights he liked more, but never turns fights down. Also, he's beaten every single top 5 fighter at MW that has ever come up.

    Keyboard warrior bullshit. The guy has beaten all the top fighters put in front of him. He's made a living out of fighting the best fighters in the world. If he's as scared as you think he is, he's an incredibly brave person to sack up and step in there and fight time and again for the past 15 or so years.
