Well ya i can see what you mean, but i would think Machida's an even tougher fight for Tito than Evans would be... I don't know why you say Tito weaseled his way out, IMO the Machida fight is going to be way harder than an eventual Evans rematch.

I don't understand your post. If you could re-word it, awesome.

Well, right now, i don't think much of it to be very honest. Another fighter who is no longer in the UFC claims out of nowhere that one of the UFC's headliners won't be happening... I'll have to wait for confirmation

Because of their fighting styles, fighting backgrounds and fighting tendencies, the rematch is probably going to be a similar fight. Not so exciting but two great athletes going at it. I don't believe there should even be a rematch because that fight was just as much as a test for Rashad as it was for Tito. Thats it! It was a good fight for both of them and they should not fight again unless it was a title match.

I'm sorry but I am not sold on Evans at all. I thought he lost to both Ortiz and Bisping ,but for some reason he's gotten lucky . I really think he's in for it this time with Silva. He's going to get smashed

the first fight was boring and the second wont be any different... tito may have weaseled his way outta the rematch but you cant blame him, nobody wants to see the rematch and its titos last fight on this contract so he needs to pick a fight that'll put him in the title picture.. that involves fighting someone thats a serious contender.. rashad isnt even close.

Tito doesnt need to fight Rashad, in his mind he won (and he sorta did). But Rashad's hype. Thiago will destroy him. If Thiago wins, IMO, he should fight Jardine. would be a great fight.

Sorry but tito will never contend for the title in the UFC again, he can;t beat Wandy Chuck or Rampage, much less Shogun or Machida.. Tito is not a top 5 MW anymore.. the only way hes got a shot at another title is to gow here the rest of the B and C grade fighters go
