If Rashad was fighting RJ im sure the end result would have been the same.
still dont like rashad, but i dont know how you can say he's overrated. 18-0 is a hard thing to do in mma. esp in the most stacked division in the UFC. i just think machida is that good. you can tell when people face machida that they can't stay patient enough to let him make a mistake. rashad started out patient, but he finally gave in and went after him.
we'll see what rampage can do to machida. if not, i see machida winning for a good bit with that belt.
