"I'm happy for Jones, I think it's a great fight for him. I think Jones is going to smash Rua."

"Training with Jones in practice, he's one of the best guys I've ever trained with. The level he's gotten to so fast is scary and alarming. He's one of those guys at the gym, he'll be the first one there and the last one to leave. ... He's hungry, he wants it, so I'm glad if it's going to be someone to step into my place, I'm glad it's him."

"I'm still not going to fight Jon. I will always find something to challenge myself. I will go up to heavyweight or down to middleweight. But I will not fight Jon."

And that's because Rashad knows he'd get owned by Jones.

Dunno about getting owned, Jones would probably win though. If Rashad can close the distance on Forrest then he can get close enough to Jones to test that chin.

If Rashad can drop the MW that still leaves the dilemma of fighting either GSP or Nate. Going up the HW means possibly taking on Carwin or Schuab at some point.

No way he survives at HW.

Cluck, cluck cluck... and he definitely won't go far in the heavy weight division. He's better off going to Strike Force.

Can Rashad realistically drop to MW?
