Shogun would win by ko. Henderson will also beat Evans. Shogun will beat lil nog, so the Evans/Shogun fight won’t happen. Log in to Reply c hill May 28, 2013 this fights worth watching Log in to Reply ken shiro May 28, 2013 Yep..Im going with Hendo on this one as well!!! Log in to Reply ultimate fighter May 28, 2013 eveyone has been saying this for ages, but he would be a instant middleweight contender, lots of fresh fights for him at that division hes one of the smallest lhws and hes a decent bit smaller then fighters like weidman, and silva Log in to Reply tallandsincere May 28, 2013 I like this fight, tough to call. I wonder what Hendos cardio will be like come fight night, this will clearly be another war i cannot see either been able to out wrestle the other. I dont know who i am routing for which i like, so lets just hope its a war. Log in to Reply boonching May 28, 2013 i have a feeling this fight is gonna suck. rashads not gonna fight him Log in to Reply DaMilkman May 28, 2013 Evans has lost it (if he ever really had it) imo… Hendo FTW 4sure Log in to Reply shortandinsincere May 28, 2013 @tallandsincere You really cannot see either being able to out wrestle the other? Seriously? Rashad’s MMA wrestling is far superior and on a different level. Look what Rashad did to Phil Davis (high level wrestler) and then look what Jake Shields did to Hendo when they fought (Jake being a high level grappler, but smaller)..this fight is a mismatch, the only way Hendo wins is via a luck H-Bomb, but if Rashad is on his bicycle and moving around, easy victory for him, possibly even some nice GNP…it’s mma, anything can happen, but this should be an easy fight for Sugar Rashad.. Log in to Reply Lazer212 May 28, 2013 I thought that was a sweet trailer. Log in to Reply NotVinnieJones May 28, 2013 @ boonching I agree. Hendo likes to bang and Rashad keeps his distance from those types of fighters. Rashad’s first priority always seems to be to not get hit, then landing strikes comes in a distant 2nd. Rashad will do his typical bouncing around and ducking while staying out of striking range while going in for a combo once every 2 minutes while the crowd eventually boos then falls asleep. Hendo couldn’t get close to Machida and it will be the same with Rashad. Although Hendo will come to fight he isn’t fast enough to close the distance and Rashad will run everytime Hendo attempts to. I’d like to see it be a war but I don’t think there is much of a change that will happen. Log in to Reply tallandsincere May 29, 2013 @shrotandsincere I respect your opinion and do think Rashad has the better pedigree i just feel he will want to fight a Machida style fight keep his distance. Perhaps try for a takedown at the end of rounds 3/4/5 if it goes that far. Rashad will be keeping away from Hendos right hand early though and should wait for Hendo to gas before he tries to make it a grappling match, Log in to Reply shortandinsincere May 29, 2013 @tallandsincere I respect your opinion, too, and agree that Rashad will fight a cowardly, Machida style fight minus the flying-tooth finish. If SUGAR shows up, maybe we’ll have a great fight, but i fear we’ll have nutra-sweet Rashad…..sigh Log in to Reply tallandsincere May 29, 2013 @shortandsincere Good points i just feel after Rashads utterly poor showing against little Nog he knows he doesnt just have to win but in a fashion that isnt deemed a snooze fest or overly safe. I hope both bring it but i see your prediction been the likely outcome. Either way i believe both are out of title picture for the future.
