    Rashad does not have the skillset to beat everyone at lhw. He is too short, has trouble striking against lenghty opponents and he thinks he can box. If he is going to stay at lhw he needs to stick to his wrestling otherwise he needs to drop down to mw where he will have more success.

    I see Rashad slipping down Rampage Valley.

    Rashad is super quick and with that power he has (yes he has KO power) and his wrestling with great top control....dude is a force.
    But he is a headcase. I believe that will always prevent him from regaining the title.

    It is possible to look like that naturally.

    Personally I was hoping I would get to see Rashad fight Sonnen.
    Rashad vs Sonnen would be a pretty sick fight.

    I absolutely loathe Rashad Evans.

    That being said, with his skillset and proper commitment, he could have great success at 185 or continue to simply entertain at 205. I always thought that, if he would work on the explosiveness of his takedowns, he could mirror GSP at 185 but I just don't see that happening at this poing.

    Mr. Cornute
    I think he should, it would give him something to work for in regards to a title shot because as long as Jones has the LHW title I just do not see him being LHW champion.
    I honestly do not see anyone at MW that Rashad could not beat and almost easily beat. His fight with Nog showed he was a step off his game but other than that hickup Rashad only loses to people who are spectacular that night.
