Two high-profile light heavyweights coming off recent losses could be pitted against each other, according to UFC President Dana White.

I think either fight depends on which Rashad shows up. I know some time's gone by, but who the hell stepped in the cage with Lil Nog?

The slimmed down for Mw version who had no way of collapsing the pocket against a southpaw superior striker.

The King Mo version who thinks he's a good boxer, throwing out the window his years of wrestling experience.

I would propose that when Rashad cant get close enough to land strikes he doesnt feel comfortable shooting from the outside. Against southpaws the distance is always farther because of the lead foot. I think this is why he didnt attempt many takedowns against Machida or Nog.

After Rashad's last fight, I'd have to think long and hard before picking hime again. Rashad's game seems to be going down hill. Hendo vs Rashad sounds like it could be pretty fun. Much better than Machida vs Hendo.

Davis also tried about ten more times for a takedown.
