    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.

    He has and he has always said he wanted to get in a fight or two at lhw 1st. I guess with his loss to Lil Nog all chances of getting another crack at the title are slim to none.

    Personally I was hoping I would get to see Rashad fight Sonnen.

    It is possible to look like that naturally.

    Rashad vs Sonnen would be a pretty sick fight.

    IMO Rashad still has the skillset to beat almost everyone at 205. Jones and Lyoto are the only 2 I think he gets beat by.

    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.

    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.
