I think the hatin' is bullshit, the reaction of people who probably have zero experience wrestling or grappling, and would rather see two guys mindlessly banging. I mean, if a guy can get dominant position and completely shut an opponent's offense down, that's a real as it gets. People that have spent some years on the mats can appreciate it.
It's not like the answer to Rashad is some great mystery--get someone in there who can outwrestle him!
And Rashad has more than earned the right to his arrogance at this point. He's the kind of guy who has winning flowing through his veins. At least until he goes up against Jon Bones...
