It would be a tremendous honor to have held the belt in two different division and also to beat Anderson Silva. I get excited every time I get a chance to watch him fight. When my career is said and done, i want to say I competed against some of the best guys in history. Fighting Anderson Silva is something for me, to say I went against the best ever. Fighting against that guy and beating that guy, because I do believe I can defeat Anderson Silva.

I imagine most who face Anderson would meet the same fate, and I certainly wouldn't bet on Evans but I think he has a much better chance of beating Silva than he does of ever beating Jones.

I'm sure some people think they can beat Silva. But it shouldn't be a topic as Rashad hasn't earned a shot or has any plans to drop down to 185. Yet, people keep asking him about it.

Evans has better striking and more power than Chael (who dropped Anderson twice in their first fight), has about equal MMA wrestling but has a quicker shot. I'd give Evans more of a chance than almost anyone else

Rashad has a shot, but I would likely pick Silva. Assuming he returns from his injury at top form with no rust, I still think Wiedman has the best shot. I'm not saying he would win, but I think he has the best shot out their among the 185#s based on his style.

If rashad fought with a primary wrestling offense I could see him winning.

However if he were to try and trade he would surely be knocked out by a counter

Call me crazy but I think Evans wins this fight. Shit i'll even AV bet someone on it if Rashad makes the drop to MW and gets a shot at Anderson.

Since when do fighters need to earn a shot at a title ?

Nick Diaz hasn't. Neither has Weidman - should he get the nod.

i think rashad should move down. i think he could bring a serious challenge to silva. IMO he could be the one to end silvas reign. unfortunately i dislike both fighters so this doesn't excite me as much as it should. oh well, it would be great for the fans.

I think Evans would have a better shot than most
But I do think he needs to face a 185 er like belfort
Or rockhold first Evans still has great 205 bouts ahead of him

Vs hendo
Vs shogun
Vs gulstallfsson
Vs machida rematch to name a few
