      Rashad…sit your ass down and quit trying to be like Chael.

      The past few years I have been really disappointed in this company. They claim to put on the best talent and match ups. They expect guys to win to move up the ranking to ultimately fight for the championship. That isnt the case anymore, management picks guys for championship fights not for their accomplishments, wins & rankings to the top. Champions like AS pick their challengers. What a joke….We can only hope that the Fertita Bros will put an end to that…. As vs Weidman

    Rashad is cool….like him very much…..starting to get little excitement from AS fighting random guys….he should defend this belt or fight Jones….unless they are talking about this being at 185 (are they? Could not watch the video)

    Silva will knock him out better than Machida did.

    As much as I would love to see The G.O.A.T fight a striker, I wouldn't mind seeing him knock the Lay&Pray out of Rashad.

    Makes sense. At least its a win in a different weight class first.

    He'd be a solid challenge for Silva, win or lose. However, first-things-first, he's got to get past Big Nog.
