"One reason I decided not to [move to middleweight] was because I was like, 'Why would I drop to 185 just to be in the same spot I’m in at 205?' It didn’t make any sense to me. If an opportunity came along that made more sense then it would be worth the sacrifice. If it was a title shot or against a really good, top contender something like that, it would be something that people wanted to see, it would be something I would think about. I’m already at the top of my division and for me to go down to 185 is kind of like now I’ve got to start over and prove myself at 185. Because I am good at 205, but whose to say I’d be the same fighter at 185 when I cut that weight? There’s a lot of variables that can come into play.

When my career’s all said and done I want to be able to look back and say I competed against some of the best guys ever in history. To me to be able to get a chance to compete against Anderson Silva would just be an amazing experience, and something I’d be able to take with me forever, to be able to say I went against the best guy and beat the best guy. I do believe I can beat Anderson Silva, and I believe that the skills that I have is something he’d have hard time dealing with, but to compete against the guy, first and foremost, would be an honor in and of itself."

TheMentalisT - I am a big fan of Rashad now a days, he has honestly transformed into a very humble guy who says all the right things.

Never liked him before, but he is growing on me.

This would be a great fight, Rashad is definitely the stronger guy.

This. Rashad has come a long ways since his days in the TUF house.

hes not getting good advice.  he probably has to win 2-3 more fights to get a shot at 205. he probably only needs 1 win to face anderson

The same rashad that fought Jones is not on Anderson Silva's level. Silva would knock Rashad out. I'm a fan and a supporter of him but it wouldn't go down well. We have already seen the peak of Rashad. Looking forward to the rest of Rashad's battles.

He would still lose...

 

But it is the perfect fight to make now considering the lack of options they have.

 

I would be much more interested in seeing this fight then the Silva vs Lombard fight (but then again i do not expect him to get the shot because i think Okami will win.....but for argument sake).

 

It would give the division enough to settle on the real contender and it might bring the possibility of either superfights involving Silva a little closer.

 

Lets hope Rashad comes out of the little Nog fight unscathed and set this thing up.

I'd love to see it. Let's see Rashad vs. Weidman, or Lombard, or Rockhold.

The only person who stands a chance at beating Anderson is jones. Evans is a beast but he's no Anderson silva. Would like to see this fight though. Phone Post

This is the best fight for both guys at the current time. Plus, if there's anyone who has a good shot at beating Anderson, it's Rashad. His MMA wrestling is as good as Chael's, but his ground and pound is much more powerful.

Though, if he tries to stand, he'll likely get picked apart from a distance.

I really thought after losing to Jones he would make the drop to 185. Seems like he has enough speed already and would probably carry a nice strength advantage down. Not to mention it seems like he has already fought everyone at lhw.

would be good to see anderson face evans (a top 205er) since anderson is scared to face jones. Maybe if anderson won it would give him some REAL confidence @ 205.
