Why do you like Rashad?

When they were supposed to fight the first time before Davis pulled out, the highest you could find Davis was +115, but it hovered around +105.

Now all Rashad has done is beat Tito as a -500 favorite and that is worth 80¢ to the line?  

I think Davis is as live as it gets, as outside of experience, and likely punching power can hang anywhere.

I think Davis looked really average vs lil' nog his last fight, really struggled to get takedowns, and obv davis is not winning this one on the feet

I like rashad because I think his wrestling skills are good enough to defend Phil's TDs. I think he can keep it standing. On the feet he is very quick. Almost like Edgar getting in and out. And at this pt in his career, very smart. Although he has only fought the Tito can, inflated after his bader win, rashad was very impressive. And while rashad hasn't fought a lot lately either has Phil. Me along with lots others took awhile to appreciate rashad. But after all these yrs and after all the top competition he's fought, he has still only lost once, and that was from the still mysterious counter punching of machida. But good luck sharp. I value yr picks alot

Davis barely beat Rogerio...thats the bottom line. i dont think hes ready for a top 5 opponent after beating rogerio, tim boestch ad rodney wallace in his last 3 fights...that is oe hell of a step up for Davis to take on Rashad...and the line keeps dropping for Rashad!

I think Rashad will win but he has had a long layoff, not counting Tito.  Davis has had a decent layoff due to injury himself though, so this should even things out.

I was thinking Davis for a while myself as I said in the email I sent you. I looked into this matchup a lot. I don't see rashad losing this fight. I think they are fairly equally balanced however I'm willing to lay the -200 on rashad looking ahead at jones. These guys hate each other. I think rashad vents his anger for jones out on Davis tonight. Good luck with the play I thought about it myself but feeling rashad a lot.
