    Anyway, Rashad can certainly go the distance, but his fairly low level of aggression and poor octagon control will not go far against Chuck.
    Another fight I see as quite interesting is the Hamill (+190) /Franklin (-240) fight. I can't imagine Hamill winning. While Franklin is going up to 205 (where Hammil is better suited), Franklin's stand-up is far superior (Hammil continues to improve), Franklin's submissions are markedly better, Franklin's endurance is a cut above, and his wrestling is noteworthy (agreed that it is not Special Olympic level). Hammil is a monster in the wrestling department, but he does not seem to have knockout power, submission skills, and he is known to not follow instructions from his corner during the fight. Can anyone pose a scenario wherein Hammil wins?

    Interesting post Harold. I can tell you how Hammil wins and it is a very basic starategy that could net him a "W". He wins with a stiff jab and ground and pound strategy. He plays it safe and grinds out a win against the much smaller and not as strong Franklin. BTW, Hammil is not special Olympic level, he is significantly above that.

    I think Hamill is capable of winning, but he strikes me as stubborn and doesn't come in with good game plans.

    Even though most of us think he won against Bisping, I don't know why he'd want to prove his standup against him when he was able to take him down so easily. and I don't know why he referred to the takedowns as merely a way to score points, without making any good attempt to GNP Bisping (who was never in danger of submitting him).

    Also forgetting the crowd in England is crazy for him, so taking him to a decision might not be a good idea (seemed to take the first half of round 3 off).

    He can still beat Franklin (although I don't think he will). Franklin's chin is not the greatest, so if Hamill hurts him standing he could end it with a flurry and if he takes him down and GNPs him hard he could win that way too, but I think he'll stand with him and lost most of the fight that way.

    I dont know the dude, but his post about Matt Hamill was pretty funny especially about him not listening to his corner.

    I thought CAP was already in the group?

    It's been speculated that the CAP in our group is not the real CAP. The jury is obviously still out on that one.

    If you look at the puppeteer's profile, his name is Harold Weiner.

    Has Metsfan given us a final answer? I make decisions like that one on his conclusions since they are so well thought out and investigated.

    Oh, I didnt look at his profile yet. I think we can eliminate this guy from being CAP cause his posts make some sense.
