Rampage by TKO in the 3rd. I hope Rashad wins because i think he matches up better with Machida, but Rampage should win.
I agree except I hope Rampage wins and beat Machida. I just think Rashad can't beat Rampage anywhere in this fight. Rampages legs won't be in any danger in this fight I believe. I can't remember Rashad throwing more then 1 or 2 leg kicks a round in any fight. And Rampage imo has better boxing and would KO Rashad if he really thinks he can trade with Rampage. And his wrestling definitely won't win him this fight. Hendo's couldn't and he's an olympics caliber wrestling. He's also Grecco so he grabs under you in the clinch to trip you down. Rashad shoots double and Rashad isn't as strong as Hendo so I don't think that will be a problem for Rampage. Rampage can take Rashad no matter what area Rashad tries to go at him in, the only thing he has is speed.
Rampage has better cardio(went 5 with Hendo, Rashad can barely go 3 without gassing), strength/power, chin, stand up, and on the ground I don't think it'll go there but on the ground it's pretty even since neither are specialist.
This fight won't happen til Dana forces it cuz Rashad is ducking him. But if it does Rampage no doubt, KO in 2 or 3. Rashad has the best chance with machida but that's only cuz their both the same, elusive outside strikers but neither has had their chin tested and Rashad definitely could take Machida out but no doubt Machida could do the same but Rashad can't take him down so it's all on that overhand right of his to get the job down but Machida is too smart to let that one thing put him down.
