Rashad Evans Looking To Avenge Losses To Jones & Machida | UFC News

By Jamie McAllister
Rashad Evans in an interview with 790 The Ticket.

Evans comments on his bout with Jon Jones at UFC 145.

“It was difficult because it was a fight I really wanted, but it was a good learning tool because it helped me understand that things won’t always go my way and it was something that helped me grow as a person. Did it hurt? Yes. Physically and emotionally. After the fight, a week later if felt like I had been in a car accident. My body was really banged up but my feelings were hurt more. But after a while you let it go. I didn’t get him this time and I know he didn’t get him he was a better fighter that night. I’m going to train, get better and I’ll get a chance to fight him again. I don’t have any ill will towards him or anything like that right now. Probably when we fight again I’ll have some words to say to him, but for the most part I don’t have a problem with him. If he’s the champion, I think I will fight him again, I think our paths will cross one more time. He is very tough because he is very tricky and he made some adjustments in the fight that were really key and that gave him the one. I think he is a tough champion for anybody to beat.”

Evans also states he would like to avenge the only other loss on his record to Lyoto Machida.

“I would like to Avenge my loss to Jones one day, but also to Machida. Last time he got me pretty good, and all those Internet pictures of me getting knocked out all over the internet.”

Evans comments on the way he is received by the fans and has no problem with the fans choosing to boo him.

“I don’t take it personal, because the way I see it, people don’t see me as a person, they see me as a character. So, i can’t really get upset if they say something against me or feel a certain way about me because they don’t even know me. They just know a character of who they think I might be based on what they have seen on T.V. or anything else like that. But, that’s not me as a person. So when they say things to, you know, insulting things or they boo me, I don’t get upset about it because they don’t know who I am as a person. It used to bother me a lot because I couldn’t understand it because i couldn’t divorce the two different sides. I couldn’t divorce Rashad Evans the fighter and Rashad Evans the person. So when they would insult Rashad Evans the fighter I took it like they were insulting Rashad Evans the person. So I started thinking about it and the older I got I just realized that these people don’t know me. The same people that boo me or say something nasty to me are the same ones that will wait two hours in ling to get a picture signed by me or if they see they tell me they are my number one fan and they’ve followed me since TUF. I’ll take a picture with them all the same because the fans are what make you. Without the fans, I would just be somebody that likes to fight. The fans make you, so i don’t get mad at them for that. If they boo or cheer for me, its cool because they feel something.”

With Machida booked to face Ryan Bader at UFC on Fox 4 on Aug., 4, 2012 and having just lost to Jones as well as the champion facing Dan Henderson at UFC 151 in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sept, 1, 2012. Both options currently seem unrealistic for Rashad.

Who would you like to see Rashad face next ?

  1. Canilive says:

    Shogun

    • Reality says:

      Yeah..Shogun but he’s already booked to fight -?- .. Based on timing who knows who they’ll give him..Maybe Gustaffson, Lil Nog, or even Stephan Bonner…Ideally I’d like to see him fight Shogun or Machida.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Yep i agree this rashads way of avoiding Shogun and prob also Grover tex who would crush Rashad

  2. Bjj BB says:

    Buwaaaahahaha!! I like you rashad but you will always be #1 or #2 in the LHW class!!

  3. Bjj BB says:

    As in #1 contender

  4. Hjortur Halldorsson says:

    I can definitely see Rashad beating Lyoto in a re-match but no way can I see him beating Jon. The only way Rashad will become a LHW champion again is if Jon moves up to HW or gets thrown in jail for something stupid.
    I for one have never understood why people boo Rashad, is it really because Hughes called Rashed out for showboating and being disrespectful in the Octagon in TUF? Because that reason makes no sense to me.

    • Elite says:

      His boring ass fights with rampage and thiago silva

      • E716 says:

        2 fights are the reason he gets boos….thats ridiculous

        • u mad bro? says:

          Its ridiculous when ppl boo fighters at all these guys are physically and mentally busting their asses all day everyday dieting, training, learning, doing media, and on top of that taking care of their families. When a fan boos a fighter it shows complete ignorance and lack of understanding of what it takes to be a fighter these guys fight for the fans and to hear them boo after a win is like a spit in the face it undermines all their hard work. What does it take for some fanboy to boo a fighter from the couch? Tell these pussyfarts to get in the cage and see what it takes to fight at this level and we’ll see who still boos

        • Nando says:

          feel free to keep kissing ass to counterbalance people who boo

      • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

        Yep rashad lost alot fans after he lay n pray Thiago silva and Rampage, Also ifyou watch Rashad/Tito 1 he cleaty lost that fight.

  5. Xaninho says:

    Rashad did good up until the moment Jones started using those lead elbows. That threw him off and from that moment on he was losing the fight.

    I must admit that was good use of the reach by Jones. He does have a huge advantage over the rest with those long limbs, but he does know how to use it to his advantage.

  6. Train the trainer says:

    If Rashad works hard and maintains his great attitude and outlook on his career he will be able to accomplish anyhting.

  7. JOSH Y says:

    Rashad’s already accomplished a lot. Will he ever be able to beat Jones? I dont know about that anymore. that reach is devastating for everyone to deal with. I would love to see Rashad fight Shogun next but Shogun said Rashad was injured??? Never heard anyone say anything about that till he did.

  8. Ko_King says:

    Lol it felt like I was in a car crash! Is that a cheeky dig at John?

  9. maurice says:

    um rashad the reason u are booed is because u talk SO MUCH shit leading up to a fight, then performing like a little bitch when u get locked in the cage. it happend with thiago silva, rampage, jones, machida, and it would have happend with shogun if injuries didnt ruin things. and all his biggest finishes r against nobodies. 10 yrs past his prime tito, no chin chuck, no name fighter with fish name, and jason lambert or some shit like that. yea, fuckin no bodies. if there is any fighter in this world thats fake its rashad. he hypes every fight saying he will knock someone out, then when the fight starts he just wants to dance around or dry hump thighs and stall the fight for as long as possible.

    • E716 says:

      Your fucking ignorant…Me personally thinks its ignorant and disrespectful for fans to boo fighters….they put so much on the line as fighters in that cage, just give some respect…the only fighter I have a real problem with is Fitch….but I still haverespect for him for what he can do

  10. maurice says:

    last time i heard heartfelt cheers for rashad, is when the crowd applauded him for his beautiful stinky leg performances.

  11. WrestlingRules says:

    Rashad will defintiely beat Machida. Machida is allusive and a great counte-striker but Jones showed everybody what do with him. Simply make him fight instead of backing off and counter punching. Then when he comes in, grab his ass drag him to the ground and gnp and/or choke him to near death. He looks like a fish out of water when he is on the ground. I hope Rashad is dedicated enough to just wrestle and box and Machida is done. Crap this guy is a karate nerd!!

    Now Jones, wow he has lost to him Jones now has the mental edge. IMO Rashad needs to work on his kickboxing and hack those legs down and then when he comes in grab his ass and plant him. Jones DOES NOT like being on his back. I believe it is the only way to beat him. Maybe Hendo will Bisping him…..

    Go Rashad,,,, remember wrestling will beat ANY striker!!

    • Xaninho says:

      And yet all the champs are strikers…

      • WrestlingRules says:

        Yah like up is down and right is left and light is dark!!! You must be a liberal, you’re arguments are all backwards. You have good points until you get to where your hatred and bias kicks and then you like short circuit and go into zombie mode…It’s just like liberal brains they are kinda shut down when they hit there hatred threshold……Peace

      • WrestlingRules says:

        Yah like up is down and right is left and light is dark!!! You must be a liberal, you’re arguments are all backwards.

        • Xaninho says:

          The champs are still strikers…

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Please give me a run down of the champs and what you “think” they do in a fight. Much Obliged…Be careful though here cuz I’m setting a trap for you…and it aint gonna be pretty.

    • pepito de la O says:

      Dude ur fkn stupid, if a striker has good takedown defense vs a wrestler, how iS the wrestler gna adapt to his gameplan, I love wrestling dnt get me wrong, bit look at Cain vs jds,

      • WrestlingRules says:

        I am going to ignore that you just called me fkn stupid, because i might just blow my top here…and answer your question, A Great wrestler will overcome any takedown defense guy. You think that takedown defense is constantly good? No its the rapid repetition of the attack that breaks that defense down and once that happens swat planted on the canvas and good old hard working pounding begins….JDS done…Now if Cain does not constantly attack or gases before JDS does then its over JDS stays champ. It will be who has the biggest heart on that day……Dude I wish you would only wrestle and box for 6 months and then you would have the secret KNOWLEDGE…..Peace..btw sometime I am fkn stupid,,,, but NOT on this subject. go wrestle you WON’T be disappointed

        • Xaninho says:

          Tell that to Mendes! I’m pretty sure he will disagree

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Mendes is young and raw….Needs to work on his boxing and BAM baby Champ…..Oh and a leg kicker NEEDS to have his legs KICKED the shit out. (I use to think that leg kickers were f’ing sissy’s until my mind was changed and realized that you need to have that to defend a leg kicker, my legs hurt for weeks) They HATE that and will be mentally broken once you do….Peace, I mean HooRah, well I mean peace too. More like Peace and HooRah….That balances, right??

        • WrestlingRules says:

          @Hjortur – Muchas Gracias on the Icelandic words. Now I am Tri-Lingual!! If i could though impose on you one last time and that would be to send me the phonetic spelling of felagi? I am going to call all my gym buddies felagi from now on in your honor. (You know, is it just me or does felagi sound like it is some kind of Italian pastry?? Everytime, I say it, it comes out like an Italian chef) I would really like to respect the great Icelandic language by pronouncing it right, plus I REALLY want to get this Italian chef out of my head.. Once Again my Most Heart-Felt Thanks!!

          Yah that’s good that guy will be back in the Fall. It would be wise to take advantage of that as much as possible. NOTHING will give you more power and balance in your game than wrestling. I take it you mainly do BJJ in your gym? I like Gunnar’s more aggressive BJJ on offensive. I still think a wrestler will give him fits though. A BJJ guy is very lose and will not hold his center and thus his balance like a wrestler does. I’d like to see him fight an mma fight with a dominate wrestler to see how he does. Crap he is getting his pedigree at BJ’s gym, need BJ to put a bug in Silva and Whites ear to at least get him on TUF. Best wishes to him and all Icelanders….If they are anything like you then I am moving to Iceland if the world goes fascist, etc.. Is there any room for a wrestling, boxing, smartass Marine who can usually challenge( some call it annoy) many weak people? I guess I could blog from anywhere. How pretty are the women there? jk I am married to the most beautiful wonderful women in the world already!!

          Hmmm, you know I think I can work with “shotgun” What is shotgun in Icelandic, plz add the phonetic as well as I may need to do some rhyming and I don’t want it to sound like Italian. How about “THE BIG BOOM FROM THE NORTH’ …or….ICE BOOM…..or……CLICK -CLICK-BOOM YOU BEEN ICED……I’ll work on it…..success comes form a thousand failures or in my case perhaps a million.

          AWESOME, I knew I was getting hoardes of new fans for TGO. You may have just saved my job with THE GREAT ONE…I am going to use your comment that you are looking forward to his next fight….I will paraphrase it a bit and leave out the ‘almost’ I believe that word is a bit extraneous and doesn’t quite fit the feel for the ROUSING endorsement!!! See what I could do for Gunnar……

    • Chris Lynch says:

      The funny thing about wrestling is….if you get hit really fucking hard…the wrestling doesnt happen… Narcolepsy does….hence the wrestling never takes place. I teach Shito-Ryu Karate, as well as do MMA. I train in every aspect, but I still stick with…if you get hit really fucking hard….wrestling doesn’t happen. Sure they may grab for your legg or what ever, trying to stay concious…but thats not wrestling thats surviving. Theres a difference.

      • WrestlingRules says:

        Hmmm where to start there is so much material here. First, yes no disagreement AT ALL you get hit on the button and that’s it its over. It can happen, striking is a very effective knockout tool and boxing is the PUREST form of striking. I would also argue that you are a bit biased in the fact that you teach karate and, I am supposing, that you make a living at it. Therefore, it is important to be dedicated to it. I would also like to know if you ONLY train and teach karate and MMA or do you also fight? Huge difference, because you know as well as I do that training is nothing like a real fight. Would you agree???

        Assuming that you do. I will argue that a good wrestler and a good boxer will take out ANY striker in an mma fight if that is all he has got, because the striker cannot stop being splatted on the canvas and once there he is about to be tko’ed. striking is pretty useless on the ground this is where bjj steps in.

        Do you see this any differently?

        Do you see this any differently? You might get benefit from finding a real wrestling gym and do that ONLY for 6 months not some of these so-called mma gyms that offer so-called wrestling its a watered down version that is useless other than learning some takedown defense.

      • Nuitari X says:

        lol @ narcolepsy!! good one.

      • primalmasher says:

        yup, after wrestlers get hit they brock lesnar across the octagon in turtle stance. or if you’re frank mir you just drop like a sack of potatos.

  12. pepito de la O says:

    Ya thas true, rashad may have NOT beat “nobodys” but vs rampage n thiago n other fighters he hasent finished he gave it his all, we all like to c fights end wit a ko ya but if the fighter gives it his all, or wins by decision,

  13. Wrestler66 says:

    I like Rashad I think he’s pretty funny and has an interesting personality unlike may other fighters …. He’s quick witt is what lots of people don’t like but Rashad is a cool guy !

    He’s also a beast in the cage perfect wrestling & striking with some flawless transitions

    FUCK THE HATERS

  14. shittalka says:

    Rashad is the man. He is always fighting bigger fighters and he has beaten the toughest fighters on his way to the top. Look at the list of opponents he has put away. Yes he talks shit. If you back it up you can talk all the shit you want.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      I became a Rashad fan after he told the truth about Jon Jones and showed and PROVED how fake he really is. If Jones and Rashad were same size Rashad would win. Jones wins becauseof his FREAKISH reach. I use to think Rashad was cocky but compared to Jon Jones Rashad is a cool dude.

  15. Wrestler66 says:

    Anyone seen him doing impressions pretty funny ….. On the last episode of The Reem show he done one of Alistair in the background was awesome haha

    • WrestlingRules says:

      Oh yah Rashed is a funny ass dude…..I would much more like to see him in their announcing, Him and Sonnen would be classic…At least after Sonnen finishes taking out all the trash…lol

      • Hjortur Halldorsson says:

        I’m almost willing to bet money that WrestlingRules is Jon Fitch and Wrestler66 is Josh Koscheck (maybe it’s the other way around). I’m on to you guys :-D lol

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Shhhhhh keep that to yourself don’t spread it around…Now out of the two of us who is the smartass?? come on now…

    • Hjortur Halldorsson says:

      hehe yeah he´s great at impressions. The one with the Reem was impressive. My favorite is when he does his mother’s impression.
      On a side note one quick question. Are you and WrestlingRules sitting next to each other and commenting here on the Forum? :-D

      • WrestlingRules says:

        Yah his mother’s is classicly good….No I am in California lobbying for the Fitch Rule in mma and being his fulltime PR guy..

        Oh what is The Fitch rule you say? Actually, its really called THE GREAT ONE’S rule but for expedience I will just refer to it as TGO rule.
        Back to the rule: what it states is that any weak ass ***** fighter who can’t escape, get-up or submit a DOMINANT fighter who is controlling his whole existence for more than 30 seconds will be deducted 1 point. Now if the weak ass ***** fighter cannot escape, etc. in 60 seconds and needs his referee mommy to let his little weak ass up he will receive a 2 point deduction. Can you not imagine how EXCITING MMA will become when we get the TGO rule enacted in California and then WORLD DOMINATION???!!…..

        But, to answer your question simply, no….

        • Hjortur Halldorsson says:

          Haha I must say that I sincerely hope that this rule will not be any part of the MMA rulebook. So from the bottom of my heart bad luck getting this rule accepted. No offense.
          But Fitch would definitely be a world beater and a legend of the sport if this rule is accepted :-D

        • WrestlingRules says:

          What do you mean would be?? He already is known as THE GREAT ONE, one of the GREATEST ww of ALL time. I am beginning to question your sanity now? Or maybe you just don’t get out much…Oh and on the TGO rule we have already successfully won on the 1 point 30 second weak ass fighter clause and looking to get the 2 point ***** ass fighter mommy referring rule put in place. I was hoping for well wishes from you about this but since you seem to have a bit of a nasty side to you, I will try to get over the snub and continue on my long hard trek. Good day sir.

          btw: no offense taken, you see we wrestlers just keep going and going and going and then we WIN!!!

          First you ignore us, X, then you ridicule us, X, then u fight us, X THEN WE WIN!!!! its coming can you feel the winds.

          X=Xandidiho (sorry spelling can’t seem to get that right)

        • Hjortur Halldorsson says:

          Haha I must say that you wrestling guys have a great sense of humor and there’s not a doubt in my mind that you are sitting next to each other and laughing like mad men.
          Talking about great WW have you heard of Gunnar Nelson? He’s one of those guys that seriously needs to get into the UFC, I kind you not but he actually has a hard time finding guys to fight because he’s that good.

          You guys have a great day. I’m off to training some BJJ in the best gym in the world, called Mjölnir, I’m sure you have heard of it.

        • Wrestler66 says:

          Fitch would be even higher on guys P4P lists and that old dude with the name GET RID OF FITCH FOREVER would be well mad even more than usual haha !

        • Hjortur Halldorsson says:

          haha yeah that guy takes life way too serious

        • WrestlingRules says:

          I watched some of Nelson’s fights on youtube and yah that guy needs to get into the UFC. Has your gym been tweeting White and Silva about this guy? You need to promote him..I would but I already have my hands full with THE GREAT ONE, plus as Nelson is a bjj guy, I would be a bit hypocritical, No??? But if the pay is good enough, I would consider it!!!

          Crap Iceland, no wonder I can’t pronounce or write your name!!! I thought your name was like a mountain range or some kind of food….go figure its Icelandic….

          I would recommend you try some wrestling but maybe not many of those types in your neck of the woods…well life isn’t fair…Peace

        • Hjortur Halldorsson says:

          @WrestingRules – I’m very pleased to hear that you’ve seen some of Nelson’s fights. Both Mjölnir and myself have been tweeting Dana and there’s also a petition on Facebook collecting “likes” for Gunnar Nelson into the UFC. He will be there someday I’m sure of it. Someone like you would do wonders for him, I’m sure he would already be in the UFC if you were his PR.
          We unfortunately don’t have much wrestling in Iceland but on Fridays we do train the art of the clinch, it’s definitely my favorite part of MMA training. We have a coach who has a Greco-Roman wrestling background, but unfortunately he’s the only one in our GYM who has it and he’s going back to the States next week :-(
          I think Icelanders could be great at wrestling because we are naturally very strong and dedicated.

          Talking about my name Hjortur actually means deer so I guess you can call that food :-D

        • WrestlingRules says:

          is null code for I lost and have nothing else to say so I throw my hands up in defeat? If so, I accept you defeat

        • Hjortur Halldorsson says:

          Defeat? I’ve never heard that word before it simply is not in my vocabulary

        • WrestlingRules says:

          @Hjortur – I did it I think I spelled your first name right at least. I just broke it down into syllables, made it MUCH easier…..Deer huh so I was close…

          Yah Gunnar needs his time here! I did notice he needs to work on his boxing as well. Do you have good boxing in Iceland? I understand that Iceland is a moving fast and growing continent that will someday be a apart of North America so maybe in a couple of million years we can get some wrestling over there?? But seriously, I would ask that Greco-Roman guy to wrestle with you every moment you and he can spare before he leaves and then continue with you buddies at the gym. it will bring power out of your game. (you probably don’t call your gym mates buddies, its probably some word like; mhjorturandonhoujr of course with the little 2 dots above the o’s….Anyways you get me drift. I KNOW ANYBODY that dedicates themselves to wrestling until they get to the balance and power of their endeavor will be hooked forever. Good Luck

          Lastly, I will definitely plug Gunnar to the UFC. We have started a massive twitter campaign to White for TGO to try and get him to WAKE UP to the excitement and DOMINATION THE GREAT ONE is!! But you know Gunnar needs a brand name that will stick in White’s craw. Hmmm what about; THE BJJ GREAT ONE FROM THE NORTH…. too long? too like my current client? I’ll work on it…

          btw: I am under the gun with TGO. He is looking for results and if I don’t succeed I will be fired. There is some rumblings going on in the camp that perhaps I could be making it worse for him…it’s a nasty poison filled rumor that I could use your help dispelling if you would. I DO believe that I have turned hoards of fans into TGO lovers. Yes???

        • Hjortur Halldorsson says:

          Haha congratulations on spelling my name correctly, massive achievement I must say.

          We have decent boxing here in Iceland nothing more than that. Gunnar does most of his training in the States, he’s been training at BJ Penn’s GYM for example and some other reputable GYM’s in the States. He’s a very fast learner so we don’t have to worry too much about his weakness which aren’t that many. I think his mental toughness is his best asset.

          Couple of million years? I don’t know if I can wait that long. But yes I will definitely try to get has much wrestling with that guy has I can before he leaves, he will be back though next fall fortunately.

          In Iceland we call our buddies “félagi” know you’ve learnt some Icelandic, your welcome btw.

          I like the name you mentioned, after hearing I’m even more sure that you are the right guy to promote Gunnar. Gunnar is actually called Gunnar “shotgun” Nelson because when he throws combinations the punches go “click, click… BOOM!!!”

          No worries you will never be fired you’re doing an excellent job, I’m almost excited for Fitch’s next fight when ever that will be :-D

        • WrestlingRules says:

          I thought you said you didn’t have DEFEAT in your vocabulary??? null=DEFEAT,,No??????

        • Hjortur Halldorsson says:

          I have no idea why Bjpenn.com can’t handle my comments and just turns them into “null”
          Maybe I’m just too big for this site.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Oh, I see…..this dumbass(me) is getting smarter….I also notice that I guess I get a little too bad wordy and get timed out. …I hate being neutered..I am trying to clean my ass up, but it;s been built over years of smartassness….I will continue to pray about it…

        • WrestlingRules says:

          @Hjortur….Man you ARE a wrestler!! at the HEART of EVERY wrestler is a can do mentality and defeat does NOT exist…You da’Man…..You know i need to get that key that has the 2 little dots on top of the o so I can really do your name justice, you lionheart deserve it!! btw: I mean still a bit scared to try your last name,, way too many syllables for a wrestling, boxing dumbass Marine….HooRah…

        • Hjortur Halldorsson says:

          Haha thanks bro I appreciate that and I most certainly agree with you. You will spell my last name correctly some day, I’m sure of it ;)

  16. pepito de la O says:

    All fights start standing up not on the ground, my fav is jds cz he’s a smart fighter, wrestling is good like I said I love wrestling but take down defense actually does work the majority of the time, if ur good at it

    • WrestlingRules says:

      JDS is awesome, I really like his striking, the best at heavyweight. If he would incorporate more offensive wrestling like BJ using Hughes help in the Fitch fight, he would be close to unbeatable. Right now he is suspect because he only uses defensive wrestling and his striking to win his fights. That will catch up to him and I think Cain can do it. He has no worries of JDS taking him down so all he needs to be concerned about is his striking and getting inside. If that happens I believe Cain wins. If not JDS will be champ until perhaps Jones goes to HW. I’d like to see this fight next or Reem and JDS.

  17. Zack says:

    I don’t see rashad beating jones or lyoto. I would like to see rashad vs machida 2 tho even tho I think machida will win again

    Only sucker motherfuckers boo fighters, I think it makes them feel better about their shitty life and misfortune.

    I support whatever Suga does period, why, because he’s a real dude and is nice enough to give fans full access to everything he does. On top of that he’s an amazing athlete and talks a ton of shit regardless of what all the haters say. He’s a entertainer and got a understanding of that aspect of the sport early on and people weren’t ready for it. Now everyone is on his wagon which is fucking hilarious, especially on this here site. But we all know the type of characters that dwell here so not shocking.

    Yes Rashad,we do know you,when you are famous every thing you said reflects how you are as a person,we know everything you let us know,so if you show you are a Dick than you will always be a Dick,am sick of you and Jones said one thing and do another,you are a good fighter but mark my words you will never ever be a champion again,that fight with chuck chisel was pure luck,he was Beting you,to be a champ you have to defend your belt a least one time.that’s why we boo you fkng crying baby

    why not Jon Jones and Anderson Silva? And Sonnen is about to get knocked out. Silva was toying with him.

    Anyone else realize how many grammatical errors there were? Damn that was really bad. Normally it doesn’t bother me, that one was just full of them though.

  22. Jay Ray says:

    Wait they were booing Rashad I clearly thought everyone was booing Jones. Dayum Rashad will come back and be bad ass once again. Would love to see him take on Machida again.

    Great ambassador

  25. Clay says:

    Radhad vs machida 2 would be good. I like machida in any fight lol

  26. some guy says:

    @jp

    no need to be a dick. WrestlingRules was not attacking hendo in the slightest. he was arguing the logic of what Michael hamlin wrote,

    “The youth is taking over and rashad can not keep up!!”
    because hendo is in his 40’s and still beating these said youth.

    rashad and fitch are my 2 most hated fukin fighters of all time. i dont have to be ignorant or uneducated in mma to boo these guys. i luv the ground game. i can watch guys like the diaz bros, pettis, bj, cain, urijah. guys that do work on the ground, either from there back or on top. they dont stall, they look for devastating blows and sub attempts. like i said rashad is fake. shad talked out of his ass for months about jones, trying to destroy his image in every way he could. then when jones beats his ass he bows down like a little bitch and no longer is going out of his way to bury jones further. rashad last 3 fights, getting dominated by jones, gassing out in the sloppiest display of mma with davis, and beating up a old ass tito who took the fight on a few weeks notice..fuck you evans, i have more respect for GSP, and dat dude a vaseline, roid belly bitch.

      First of all, Fitch is ONE of the GREATEST ww of ALL time and Rashad is ONE of the GREATEST lhw of ALL time…..Now that we got that straight junior, so you don’t think a beast like Fitch and Rashad that can take a ***** ass fighter to the ground and COMPLETELY dominate him and PREVENT that sorry ass bitch from getting up is NOT the ULTIMATE DISPLAY of POWER and DOMINATION??!! What the hell is wrong with you?? This is the ULTIMATEFC isn’t it? Well that is ultimate in domination isn’t it? All these weak ass fighters can rely on is their referee mommy to save them and let up their sorry ass’ up just to get planted again!!! So go on and WAKE UP zombie………….

    @Hjortur – Muchas Gracias on the Icelandic words. Now I am Tri-Lingual!! If i could though impose on you one last time and that would be to send me the phonetic spelling of felagi? I am going to call all my gym buddies felagi from now on in your honor. (You know, is it just me or does felagi sound like it is some kind of Italian pastry?? Everytime, I say it, it comes out like an Italian chef) I would really like to respect the great Icelandic language by pronouncing it right, plus I REALLY want to get this Italian chef out of my head.. Once Again my Most Heart-Felt Thanks!!

    Yah that’s good that guy will be back in the Fall. It would be wise to take advantage of that as much as possible. NOTHING will give you more power and balance in your game than wrestling. I take it you mainly do BJJ in your gym? I like Gunnar’s more aggressive BJJ on offensive. I still think a wrestler will give him fits though. A BJJ guy is very lose and will not hold his center and thus his balance like a wrestler does. I’d like to see him fight an mma fight with a dominate wrestler to see how he does. Crap he is getting his pedigree at BJ’s gym, need BJ to put a bug in Silva and Whites ear to at least get him on TUF. Best wishes to him and all Icelanders….If they are anything like you then I am moving to Iceland if the world goes fascist, etc.. Is there any room for a wrestling, boxing, smartass Marine who can usually challenge(some say annoy) many weak people? I guess I could blog from anywhere How pretty are the women there? jk I am married to the most beautiful wonderful women in the world already!!

    Hmmm, you know I think I can work with “shotgun” What is shotgun in Icelandic, plz add the phonetic as well as I may need to do some rhyming and I don’t want it to sound like Italian. How about “THE BIG BOOM FROM THE NORTH’ …or….ICE BOOM…..or……CLICK -CLICK-BOOM YOU BEEN ICED……I’ll work on it…..success comes form a thousand failure or in my case perhaps a million.

    AWESOME, I knew I was getting hoardes of new fans for TGO. You may have just saved my job with THE GREAT ONE…I am going to use your comment that you are looking forward to his next fight….I will paraphrase it a bit and leave out the ‘almost’ I believe that word is a bit extraneous and doesn’t quite fit the feel for the ROUSING endorsement!!! See what I could do for Gunnar……

    Oh yah to get back ON Topic for all the people who are about to flame me here: RASHAD IS ONE BAD MO’FO WHO IS ONE OF THE GREATEST LHW IN THE WORLD!!! WAR RASHAD!!!!

    (Man I need to figure out how to post right, I’m posting double posts and posting in weird spots and getting neutered from too often posting. I thought I figured it out that I was just using too many potty words but CRAP, I’ve been trying to clean that up and I am still getting blocked..all I have to say is CRAP, CRAP, CRAP….I just FUCKING don’t understand how I am GETTING FUCKING blocked so much???? Can anybody help a FUCKING brother out??? CRAP) do the bots comprende spanglish or humor??
