    I really dont want to see Page fight Shogun mostly because of his MT. I would rather see someone more well rounded who can make Shogun pay for trying some of those risky kicks and knee strikes he utilizies.

    Dana sells drama when possible. I think he'd set up Rampage v Shogun as long as both win. I'd love to see that fight as well now that Rampage seems to be closer to his old self.

    if shogun comes in at full health and cardio then i see this fight going the way of chael silva. rashad will take him down and control most of the fight but 25 minutes is a long time to go with a guy who has as many skills and ways to win a fight as shogun does does. i see shogun catching rashad in a sub somewhere mid to late rd 4
    this^ I dont see Rashad taking Shogun's belt. Rampage had a better chance on his A-game, honestly than Rashad does.

    Rashads chin is still suspect after the Machida fight, he went wobbly legged against both Thiago and page so i think there is no way in hell that he can survive five round with Shogun, im visualizing a tko similar to the Rua-Machida fight, as Evans tries to grapple he will be clipped

    I think Rashad learned his lesson trying to strike and got back to his strength with is wrestling and athleteticism.

This is going to be a long night for Shogun, he really needs to be prepared to spend some rounds on his ass, I think he will need to score a finish in this fight, going to the judges against a Greg Jackson fighter is scary.
