Rashad would struggle to get a takedown for the exact same reason he wss shut out entirely by Machida. The distance between the hips of a Southpaw v. Orthodox fighter is much larger than righty v. righty. Chael took Andy down with a double leg, because Chael is a lefty. Rashad will have to shoot for single legs because of yhe distance. Andys success against singles is practically 100% in the Ufc and i cant think of a single quality lefty Rashad has ever taken down.
Point: Rashads wrestling is nowhere near as "good" as Chaels for going against Anderson.

But Rashad could easily switch his stance. In wrestling, orthodox is right foot forward (southpaw.) So he's used to that too.
He only stands righty in MMA for striking.
I still think he'd lose though.

Rashad isn't as strong or as big as Chael, not the same style of wrestling

When will you guy's learn? NOBODY is capable of beating Silva. Not even Jon Jones.
I have seen Silva make too many good fighters look like idiots. Until I see that guy beaten I refuse to believe that it's possible.
