Rashad isn't a very good trash talker on twitter.

I dont know who to believe, but I am looking foward to this whenever it happens...

You would think the better pedigree wrestler would win, and I think that is Rashad, also Rashad can take down HW's, but Jones manhandles top wrestlers, (Hammil would prolly suffer the same defeat in a rematch even without the shoulder injury) and even as an inexperienced striker, Jones crazy moves and reach make him look like a confindent kickboxing champ

I think Rashad was convinced by Trevor Whitman to challenge Jones, because Rashads family income was at stake. If Rashad thought he could make more money having rematches or co main event fights like Forrest or Shogun, he would.

If Rashad loses to Jones, Rashad could have to drop down or he could get two losses in a row and get cut like everyone else- big risk



but I think he feels he can close the distance with that crazy pressure-head bobbing, clinch and get a takedown on Jones. or land a big right hand. I think that is Rashads best strategy to close the distance, staying on the outside wont work well against Jones with the huge reach.

I think most of this is the UFC pushing them toward a rivalry.

Its the media thats driving this. The UFC doesnt have to do anything. All the media has to do is ask Jones a question and he opens his mouth and Rashad is made to look like a bitch if he doesnt respond.

They arent cutting Rashad for the next three years I bet..Actually Jones and Rashad could end up as a movie one day...intriguing story use to be buddies, now really hate each other....Epic trilogy froming here..

Would be crazy if Evans got lucky with a punch and won...I bet Jones wins 9 outta 10 but to lose the first would be crazy money for the UFC....conspiracy is coming...
