Default Gotta love Rashad!

Love him or hate him at the press conference he gave props to Matt Hughes, saying he is the greatesrt champion and his defenses is what Rashas aspires to.

I am mixed on him but respect for that!

To be honest, I'd probably like rashad if he didn't showboat during a fight.

Its still one of my favourite moments of TUF that Rashad realises that Matt is a great champion and supremem professional.

I understood why Rashad took offence but he was genuinely hurt when Matt rebuked him for showboating, and he reacted to it.

But i think everyone when criticised reacts badly to it, then after 5 mins or a few days, you see it with clearer eyes and see their point.

Rashad done that and whilst apprehensive about Matt being in his corner, he won by listening to what Matt said and put onn a great fight.

Rashas really respected Matt as a winner then and Matt liked Rashad because he listened and executed things perfectly.

Great viewing!

I'm mixed on him too. He's a great fighter, that can't be denied, but I'm not a fan of him while he's in the ring. Outside of the ring and pre/post fight, he's always calm and respectful of his opponents. It's weird.

I really Like Rashad always have and always will. He is now proving that he is a great fighter my only issue will be when he fights Rampage because then I will be properly torn

I like Rashad... I never get to see him showboat cause I never watch the PPVs.

I'm excited for the fights tomorrow!

I hope Matt wrecks Serra!

I'm not sure who I want to win between MAchida and Evans though... maybe Lyoto.

I understand why people hate on Rashad, I just think it's ridiculous.

I don't have a problem with a guy celebrating or trash talking a little bit when he is caught in the moment. It's part of ALL sports, and I don't mind it one bit. Of course, there is a fine line, and any time you do anything like that, there are going to be people who just don't like you. I don't even think it something he goes into a fight planning on doing, I think it's just something that comes out naturally, like a reflex. Not like Tito having t-shirts pre-printed, that is going out of your way to be a d**k. (although I did LOL at some of Tito's shirts. )

Rashad has some swagger, and he flaunts it from time to time, but the guy has never really come off as being nasty or disrespectful any more than the next guy. He is very well spoken and doesn't sound like thug either. Personally, I like the guy and hope he does well.
