As of UFN 8 Rashad has had 2 wins decided by vicious knockout, Jason Lambert who unfortunately suffered getting his head pounded in from the mount and Sean Salmon who basically got kicked in the face. Although Rashad has had both his wins decisively, I still believe that Rashad needs to fight tougher competition for a title shot.

Rashad has been rapidly improving with his game, hes stepped up and made the decision to train at Greg Jackson's camp in New Mexico with the likes of Diego Sanchez and Kieth Jardine which could take him leaps and bounds in terms of technical, and conditional improvement. If Rashad continues to train around the same people he'll continue to become a better and better fighter, and as the great Randy Couture once said "“Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Find workout and drilling partners that challenge you or you’ll never improve your game!".

I think now that Rashad has proved to both the UFC and the MMA fans that he is indeed capable of winning a fight without a dreaded decision he's going to start getting the big dogs of the LHW division heading his way. Maybe not to the level of Quinton Jackson, Tito Ortiz, and Babalu Sobral but definetly fighters such as Michael Bisping, or Forrest Griffin who are all also hungry for future contention of the UFC LHW belt.

Yeah he's in the as talented, but not as proven group. That doesn't mean Forest, Bisping, Rashad, Jardine, won't beat Tito, Babalu, Rampage. I think they each need a victory over one of the veterans or a fighter of similar skill before they get a titile shot.
