    He turned down his contract shortly after winning it. Though he lost out on a decent amount of money and possible promotion deals he felt that his skills were best suited for joining the next Dancing With the Stars. :cool:

    He could have easily been in Feb 4th card. I think he is deciding if he wants to come back since any heavy weight out there right now and I mean anyone could beat him haha. Seriously, I hope there isn't anyone that finds him a "pro- level" fighter.

    I think he's a good fighter, I hope he's on 58 or 59.

    Did you only see him fight Mike Whitehead or what? Seriously, Dana tried to find some good heavyweights out there and hey I give him credit but you can't SERIOUSLY say that Rashad is a good fighter. I am sure some local events he could be king at but even a lanky fighter like Sylvia would demolish him and Sylvia is lucky to be in the UFC. He is more of an icon for heavyweights because of his size. The best way to end this silly arguement though would be to put him in the ring. Realistically he will drop weight class, get tossed in the ring with a guy like Leben as a TUF fight, and he will get rocked. couple more undercard fights, and his contract will be gone after that and he will be seen no more.

    He is only 5'11, he could cut to 185 with a little work. At least admit there is no way he can run any game at HW, LHW is not going to be much more friendly for him.
