Back to 205 for Evans. Should be a better class for Smith.

Prediction: correct Smith   correct KO/TKO   wrong Round 3  

Evan is probably the easiest fight of the UFC 205 rooster right now but they wont cut him because he will go to bellator fight other former UFC fighter.

Prediction: wrong Evans   wrong Decision  

Seems to b the trend. Old fighters stick around longer then they should cause they get payed way more at the end of their career. New fighters on their way up constantly challenge them to make a name for themselves fast and cause they think they are the easiest fight. Most of the time they are right. Mike pyle, carlos condit, vitor belfort and the list goes on and on. I guess thats the fight game for u. Toughest cruelest job there is.

Prediction: correct Smith   correct KO/TKO   correct Round 1  

This to me could be another example of wisdom vs youth.  RE has been gun shy of the grappling and is wrestling base in his last few fights.  If he can shake it off and get back to his blanket smothering attack that made him successful I don't think smith can stop it.

Rashad should have retired approximately three years ago. He probably gets finished here.

Don't see Rashad get inside Smith's length. He can potentially grapple-**** the not great TDD of Smith, he's done it before to much heavier fighters, but I think he consistently runs into limbs until he drops.

Prediction: correct Smith   correct KO/TKO   wrong Round 2  

I expect Smith will try to come out hard and fast to test the confidence of Rashad. Unless Rashad can take Smith down and grind on him, I don't see him being able to pull the trigger enough to get inside and land a barrage to take Smith out. Sad to say, but Rashad has had the same puppy dog look in his eyes that BJ has had for a while now. I think he gets stopped early.

Rashad is a shell of his former self.
