IDK about Jackson whipping Evans bad. Although I'd pick him to win. I think this would be a 5 round war. With Jackson winning a close decision.

Rashad has become a cocky boxer, and will get floored by Rampage. He dances around the ring for a round or two before even deciding to start throwing. As for him even taking down Quinton, I don't think that would happen either, if anything I could see him taking down Rashad.

Jackson by devastating highlight reel KO.

Edit: Can we get a mod to switch this to the lounge or UFC Forum?

Booooo. Boooooo. Rashad will be just fine on the feet and dominant on the ground. Rampage's ground game is retarded at best. This is and easy win for Rashad. The tough one will be Machida.

At first I was thinking Quinton, because Rashad would have a tough time taking him down and Page also has a big edge in boxing, but he has some holes in his game that can be exploited, and we all know Team Jackson's pedigree for breaking down a fighter's weakness. So I'm leaning towards Rshad at this point.

Quinton tends to stand in one place, and he stays pretty flat footed. He also struggles to defend the low kick, and I think that's something Rashad will exploit. Move in and out, stay out of range, and batter him with low kicks. Once he takes away Page's legs, he'll take away some of that dangerous power and be able to be a little more aggressive.

It's not going to be an easy fight for Rashad, and he's going to have to be extremely carefull of being countered when he throws low kicks. He'll have to avoid throwing any punches that aren't straight, because every time he's in range for an overhand right--he's in danger.

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.

I'm thinking Rashad can win this, however it's a very close fight to call...
Both fighters will be hesitant, both fighters will be feeling each other out for a round or two.

It will probably go to a late TKO or a decision.

So, i'm kind of on the fence on this one.

Doesnt he still have to beat Jardine to get there?!?!?!?!??????? I think he is going to have problems with Jardine. Low kicks and weird stance. IF he can get past Jardine he will have a good chance of beating Rashad. Rashad is getting away from his base and thinking he is a Boxer.....it's going to cost him. Both Chuck and Forrest were winning on the feet before getting caught. I wont say by lucky punches but........you know what i mean. Either way FCKING WAR MACHIDA

its hard to say

rampage is pretty much the same fighter he has been for the past few years, just a little bit better in his strengths.

jackson is a great counter boxer, and if you stand in front of him you're gonna get floored. I think a great deal of it would depend on rashad's chin, which im unfamiliar with. if i could see a good example of rashad's chin, and his cardio it would influence my pick.

but if rashad stays standing and doesn't get taken down, i think his cardio will be fine, as long as he stays away from the full body movements. he would have to use the leg kick and do a strategy similar to forrest for the first few rounds, or possibly the entire fight.

keep in mind in terms of gameplans, greg jackson will be making one against him for jardine (good leg kicks, poor chin). and the longer the fight goes, the more jackson and jardine will pick up and give to rashad for his fight.

so jackson will have 1 fight experience to prepare for rashad, and there is a lot of good, RECENT tape on jackson. henderson showed some weaknesses, griffin showed others, and so did wandlerlei (leg kicks... again)


so it'd be a tough call for me.

First of all, who's to say that they're even fighting? However, if they were to fight in the near future, I think you're prediction is far from accurate. As we saw against Forrest Griffin, Rampage is not the best shot blocker in the world. Rashad's explosiveness can put him OUT. And for those who say Rashad will GNP Rampage for 5 rounds, I don't think that will happen either. Unlike Rashad when he joined the UFC and came onto the Ultimate Fighter, he does not have to rely on his ground game. How many of his recent opponents did he honestly GNP to beat? I'm not saying that Rashad would run through Rampage by any means, but a lot of people have misconceptions on this fight.

Lol i think you need to re-watch that fight, as more than not the shots forrest throws are blocked.
Rampage has the best boxing defense in the entire division.

Out of his last 6 opponents, he either won the fight on the ground or was outgrappled and losing before he won the fight on the feet.
