Well this will sort out wether Rashad is good enough finally, although I think Tito's 'game' has been figured out. If you have a decent enough sprawl and your stand ups good, Tito will be in trouble.

or Tito.

These are two guys whose strengths mirror eachother. I think Tito's aggression takes this, but Rashad gets tougher when he's hurt so we'll see.

Rashad by decision.
