Silva - Franklin 2 will be nice
but why do we have to sit through Tito - Rashad 2 so quickly. you can't tell me that joe and dana actually thought that was a fight that we wanted to see again so soon

I'm excited for tito rashad 2. I think this time there will be less cage holding, and rashad will be less tentitive. I see rashad winning by unanimous decision with 3 good rounds of gnp.

I picked Tito in their last fight, but I am picking Rashad for sure in this fight. After the boos following their last bout, and the unevitable pep talk by Dana, I am pretty sure Evans is going to make to impress in the next go around. I can't say I am excited to see this match though.

yeah, Rashad seemed to be getting into his rhythm towards the end of that fight... I also picked Tito to win the first match, but I think now that Rashad has seen Tito in action he'll come back with a solid gameplan and take him. He seems like the kind of fighter who improves his game as he goes along and adds new weapons to his arsenal, whereas Tito seems like the kind of fighter who takes one major strength and tries to use it in every fight. Not that fighters can't be effective doing this... Chuck is a good example, but eventually someone's going to stamp your ticket if you can't adapt your style to different fighters.

I also am picking Rashad in the rematch. He hadn't felt Tito's size before or the "Big fight jitters" Now he's been there and knows what to expect. If he's more aggressive this time, he should take it

EDIT, Franklin will also do better, but he's still going to lose.

did no one realize that rashad was pure crap in this fight? he may improve but improving from a big pile of crap is just going to be a smaller pile of crap?! theres no way rashad is taking this. He lost once and its going to happen again...

I hope Franklin wins but everything points to a Silva TKO

I am very excited to see this rematch. I picked Tito by UD the first time and will stick to that outcome for the rematch.

I think Tito is taking this fight because he is scared of the real talent at 205, the top ten talent. He should be fighting either shogun, lyoto, arona, loser of Rampage and Hendo, or any other top ten. Tito knows he is over rated so he takes fights against fighters on a lower level. Look at his fights:

Griffin: tough and a name but certainly not a title contender
Shamrock: Past his prime
Shamrock: Months later and further away from his prime
Liddell: Champion
Evans: Untested; biggest fight to this point was Jason Lambert
Evans: Rematch

I think this fight has the ability to be exciting but what does it really do for the title picture??? If Tito wins thats great, but he beat a non-top ten fighter. If Rashad Wins it puts him on the bubble of the top ten but certainly no where near title contention.

Rashad by Split decision

Silva should beat Rich but i think the Rich has learned from the frist fight and will win

I think Evans wins this one. He will learn to be more aggressive and Dana will definitely motivate him.

I don't think that Franklin is a better striker than silva and I think he is far behind in his ground skills. I think Franklin is outmatched at his own game. Silva be unanimous. It wont be as quick as the first.
