UFC 114 Bet Pick: Rashad Evans vs. Quinton "Rampage" Jackson

Rampage is a very experienced fighter who has fought a who's who in MMA. Jackson has KO power in both hands and has a strong wrestling background. Rampage has not fought in over a year with his last decision win over Keith Jardine. Jackson has trained for this fight with Wolfslair in Britain which will get him the cardio but does not have the top level sparring partners to improve his game. Early heavy betting action has been on Evans as punters are fading Rampages desire to be an MMA fighter now that he has gone Hollywood with the A-Team. Greg Jackson is Rashad Evans coach and is known for his solid game plans in defeating his opponents. Rampage just defeated Keith Jardine a Jackson trained fighter and Rampages camp may not have been any better. Rampage is 9-1 in his last 10 fights. Rampages knows if he gets a win he will get a chance to fight Shogun again to avenge his loss in Pride. He will have plenty of motivation for a big money rematch fight with Rua. Rashad has great athleticism and speed combining with a tactical fighting style that plays for points. I think this fight is a push on the ground as both fighters have strong ground games rooted in wrestling. Going to see a stand up fight that will go to the latter rounds as Rashad tries to frustrate Rampage and talk trash to get into his head. Like Rampage's striking KO power as the edge and going against the early betting action.
