I think either fight depends on which Rashad shows up. I know some time's gone by, but who the hell stepped in the cage with Lil Nog?

The slimmed down for Mw version who had no way of collapsing the pocket against a southpaw superior striker.

The King Mo version who thinks he's a good boxer, throwing out the window his years of wrestling experience.

I would propose that when Rashad cant get close enough to land strikes he doesnt feel comfortable shooting from the outside. Against southpaws the distance is always farther because of the lead foot. I think this is why he didnt attempt many takedowns against Machida or Nog.

After Rashad's last fight, I'd have to think long and hard before picking hime again. Rashad's game seems to be going down hill. Hendo vs Rashad sounds like it could be pretty fun. Much better than Machida vs Hendo.

I'd L-O-V-E to see Hendo h-bomb Rashad into next week!
After both of there last fights... they owe it to us!

i dont buy it. He over looked nog imo. Phill davis found a way to get nog down.

Davis also tried about ten more times for a takedown.

Thats my point he should have used his wrestling and not thought he could box with Nog

But what use is it to shoot for a takedown from way outside? Rashad never got close enough to set up a successful takedown.

I get what your saying. Going back to my original line It was the king Mo version he over looked Nog didn't train properly and got out boxed. I think its telling both he an reem looked pretty bad. I think they have a talented gym just bad attitudes.
