Obligatory post on Chuck vs Rashad

You can take my lack of posting regarding the re-booking of Chuck Liddell vs Rashad Evans as confirmation that I really don’t give a flying fuck about it. I can buy Forrest Griffin as a real contender and star, but I’m just not there yet with Rashad. Perhaps it was his unimpressive pseudo-loss to Tito Ortiz. Or the bullshit decision win over Michael Bisping. Or how 5 out of his 7 UFC fights have gone to decision. Whatever it is, the dude just annoys the fuck out of me and I have no idea why the hell the UFC keeps on trying to jam this fight down our throats.

So there you go. This fight is happening. In Atlanta. That is all.

    you know what i can’t abide? this horrible attempt at a neck beard or whatever the fuck he’s got going.

  • Ark

    I feel the same way, but that’s why I’m looking forward to this fight: Rashad gets what’s been coming to him for a loooong time, a quality sprawl-n-brawl opponent.

  • Garth

    hopefully we’ll see the tough-as-hell rashad that beat up brad imes, or the guy who pounded out lambert, or the guy who highlight-reeled salmon, and not the boring as shit guy who fought tito and bisping.
    he should definitely have lost that fight against tito.

  • Nachtfalter

    I really hope Chuck is taking this fight seriously. Because if he isn’t, Rashad is going to Jardine his way to victory. And that would pretty much make him next in line for Rampage (or Forrest if Hell fucking freezes over AGAIN like when he fought Shogun). Rashad vs. Forrest for the belt… now, THAT’s a scary thought.

    another highlight reel for the iceman

    Rashad is exactly the kind of guy that Chuck built his reputation on. Evans is going to get brutally KO’d.

  • Joon4s

    I don’t mind seeing Rashad getting the shit kicked out of him. Top notch sprawl and KO power against sloppy takedowns and… yeah, just sloppy takedowns.

    “or the guy who highlight-reeled salmon”
    Oh please, that not an achievement. If you accidentally cough at Salmon he gets carried out on a stretcher.

  • garth

    he still threw it.

    Rashad is a tough and talented fighter who will one day recieve his due. I can’t understand why he is hated because he was awarded a draw with Tito. (I think he beat Bisping.) All he does is show up and fight. The man doesn’t run, he has fought bigger competition and won and has not lost, ever.

    He just doesn’t happen to have a major personality and when he tries act unlike his humble self, it seems ridiculous. But otherwise, he is good for the sport and deserves a fight with Chuck and vice versa.

    I live in Atlanta and I’m buying my tickets tomorrow. This is a great fight for Rashad to get his first loss and for Chuck to keep on the winning track with a highlight reel KO. Hopefully a bunch of other good fights get added to this card.
