|Do you really want to piss off Rampage?|
The match up pits the power and wrestling of Rampage Jackson against the speed and wrestling of Rashad Evans. Each fighter has some similarities but they use the same skill base with very different styles. I think Rashad will stick with his typical game plan of stick and move using his boxing as his primary weapon.
Rampage on the other hand could push to take things to the ground in hopes of working his ground and pound...or he could just go for the "I'll smash your ass Fool!" style. I used to think Rampage wasn't that great of a wrestler but his fight with Dan Henderson really showed his ability to control a fight on the ground even against someone with the pedigree of Dan.
The odds opened with Rashad as a +130 to +140 dog. Since the open the moneyline has moved closer to the middle with Evans now sitting around +100 to +120. Odds makers and bettors are leaning toward Rampage primarily because of his power advantage. Although I'm not sure of Jackson's future, I think he'll take some leg kicks and and a couple of solid shots before he gets really pissed and rips
Rashad's head off...Fool!
