"With Quinton "Rampage" Jackson withdrawing from a December contest with Rashad Evans (13-1-1 MMA, 8-1-1 UFC) to pursue an acting role, "Sugar's" next move has been uncertain for several weeks.

That period is over."

I dont see silva getting rashad in a position where he could ground and pound him. I guess he could drop him but rashad has pretty good boxing i see a UD for rashad

This will be a hard one for me....head vs heart
Head = Rashad
Heart = T. Silva

Night night Thiago. Rashad is patient, and will pick his spots wisely while Thiago swings wild. He'll leave himself open a few times and end up paying for it.

I see Rashad finishing Thiago here. As much as i like Thiago, i see Evans finishing in similar fashion to the way Machida did.


Patience is a virtue.

I guess I have to say that I'd go with Rashad as well. I feel like Thiago is too plodding and sometimes he over-commits to his punches. Rashad will expose Thiago's weaknesses and possibly (T)KO him.

But I would much rather see Thiago win this fight because I dislike Rashad and kinda like Thiago.

Great move on Joe Silva's part here. I will be pulling of rThiago in this one but think he has a tall order to fill. His super aggressive striking style plays right into Rashad. I hope Thiago can give Rahad his 2nd loss and KO him early in the first
