Where does “Sugar” sit in the 205lb division?

After watching UFC 78’s main event between Michael Bisping and Rashad Evans, I found myself very underwhelmed by “Sugar’s” performance. I was actually more impressed with Bisping than I was Evans.

This led me to thinking where Evans actually sat in the 205 lb. division after his split decision victory and its definantly nowhere near the top 5 as Dana White had stated. I couldn’t even put Rashad in the top 10 light heavyweights in the UFC. This is my list of the people ahead of him.

  1. Quinton Jackson
  2. Dan Henderson
  3. Wanderlei Silva
  4. Chuck Liddell
  5. Forrest Griffin
  6. Keith Jardine
  7. Ryoto Machida
  8. Mauricio Rua
  9. Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou
  10. Tito Ortiz

Can you honestly say that Rashad is ahead of anyone on that list considering the best person he’s beaten was probably Jason Lambert. Sure he’s offically undefeated – even though I still reckon that grabbing the fence by Tito was bullshit – but looking at that list of people I do not think he can beat any of the light heavyweights on there.

I’ll be away for the next week, so I wont be able to immediately recieve all the hate I’ll get from Rashad fans who visit this site. But I’ll be sure to address any qualms you have when I return.

Until then…
