    Wondering who you would favor in a rematch at this point?

    I have a feeling most will say Machida but i think Rashad has improved enough to take a rematch. Either way its a fight Id like to see at some point. I feel Rashad gets overlooked a bit.

    Machida would win again. Rashad would be a nervous wreck going in to this fight after the whole shadface incident. He would prob lose his mind if there was a shadface 2.0

    Rashad does get overlooked but Machida will always be an awful matchup for him. Very hard to take down, more technical standing, one of the few guys with a speed advantage over him... Rashad was always good and has improved but he can't become a totally new fighter. Styles make fights and this is a bad matchup for Rashad

    It would look like the Bader fight.

    what makes you say he would be so nervous? hes been asking for this match up

    why would a shadface make him lose his shit.

    hes gotten a lot better since machida slayed him

    Really? I dont get it. Yeah Machida torched him back in 2008-2009 or whatever so what. Rashad imo has looked better since they fought.

    Evans if he goes back to his wrestling background and understands he isn't going to win the standup

    Shogun is Machida's kryptonite
    Machida is Rashad's

    I don't really see what Rashad would do different. He would still be kept at a distance and he's not iron chinned enough to take Machida's punches to get inside to land his own.

    He wanted the Jones fight too and looked absolutely lost from rounds 2-5.

    We saw a under two minute fight where Evans didn't even go for a takedown. That's a huge a assemption

    I think Machida wins again.

    Evans does get overlooked quite a bit. He's got that Franklin/Fitch/Florian thing going right now, where he can beat just about everyone but the champ. I think Rashad beats every 205er not named Jones or Machida.
