Whatever happened to sugar goin down a class? I would rather see him vs silva than gsp. Can be for the mw strap. If he can make it down. I've always been a big Evans fan since his days on tuf.,winning as hw and dropping down, fighting anyone at 205. He evolved more than almost any fighter I can recall. Love him or hate him, hes got serious skill. I'd also like to see him vs chael at franklinweight.

I think Rashad at middleweight is the best chance silva has to lose under 205. Phone Post

Why would he have to go to Franklinweight for a fight with Chael? They're both 205lbers.

But yes, I'd be interested in seeing him drop as well, although he's doing a damn good job at 205.

Rashad would beat the brakes off weidman and boetsch.

I come from the future.  It didn't turn out well for Rashad:

The fact he is able to elbow from that distance is obnoxious. Phone Post

What happened is Anderson's management expressed interest and Rashad stopped talking about it.

I agree

I think GSP would have a better chance. He's basically a better version of Rashad Phone Post

I've been suggesting this match up for a long time. I even got to personally ask Rashad about the match up and he suggested it would be hard to cut to 85, but he would do it for the right $.

Rashad is IMO the single most underrated fighter in the UFC. He's 12-2 in the UFC. I reckon he could take the MW strap - he's not a huge 205er either.

Yeah, I feel Rashad would be great @95.

Although I agree that GSP is a better version of Rashad, I think I agree that Rashad has a great chance of beating AS. Given Anderson’s propensity for getting worked on the ground by great wrestlers, I could mos def see Rashad brutalizing him with GNP once securing the TD…and I do believe his GNP would be more effective than GSP’s would, if only due to power.
