I'm a big fan of both guys, so I'll just try to enjoy it for whoever deserves to win.
And yeah, the night of the Tito rematch, Rashad looked like he could beat anyone. I'll be really happy to see him back in that kind of shape—especially after the Rogerio fight which sort of made me worry he might be winding down. Rashad's focus and preparation have always been his greatest strengths, and he just didn't seem engaged at all.
