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.
- Quinton Jackson
- Dan Henderson
- Wanderlei Silva
- Chuck Liddell
- Forrest Griffin
- Keith Jardine
- Ryoto Machida
- Mauricio Rua
- Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou
- 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.
