    Different eras of competition but a classic style match-up. Two common opponents on both of their resumes. A pro-typical PRIDE vs UFC fantasy fight as any.

    Who would of won?

    I'd take arona because he almost KO'd rampage and nobody gives him credit for almost finishing rampage in that fight.

    Arona via submission

    Prime Arona out-wrestles and out-grapples Rashad ALL NIGHT.


    Deal with it.

    I'm a huge Rashad fan but Arona's a terrible stylistic match up for him, if Rashad won it would have to be by using his standup.

    While I appreciate the compelling reply. As if sherdog doesn't have enough wanna-be mods already.

    I keep hoping to hear about a comeback from Arona. Just another "fantasy" thread. Bummer.

    Rashad, especially if he's aggressive.

    Youre forgetting that the hardest low kicks in the division was owned by Chicardo Arona

    So did Lil Nog and he beat Rashad. I doubt you've even seen a single Arona fight. He was a great fighter and probably would've won a decision.

    The thing about Arona is... Dude is a beast, dont get me wrong... DUDE IS A FUCKING BEAST like the most lhw gifted specimen physicly speaking buuuut... he prefered to surf and get girls instead of being punched in the face and get rich. Right now Arona is banging some hot girl while surfing in some paradisiac beach while we are doing some fantasy matchup. He's heart is no longer into fights for a looooooooong time (like I said... its more into surfing and banging girls.).
