    i'm thinking Lyoto because he always looks so smooth in his fights but Thiago's power scares me

    I really want to be excited for this fight, but the name Machida really kills it for me :o

    We'll see though, I think Thiago will pressure him and hopefully some fireworks will fly.

    Machida by first round ko/tko is Silva just rushes out there into him.

    I think that people who don't like machida just watch mma because they want to see violence, they dont care about craft and strategy. They just want to see some blood or a crazy kung-fu movie one punch KO....
    LOL @ everyone who calls him evasive

    Machida by TKO stoppage in the third.

    .

    Silva is gonna run straight in, eat a huge shot, get dropped, then Machida's gonna make it rain.

    We should bet on the over/under on how many times the word 'ellusive' is used during the fight. I'll say over 10

    lol thats going a bit far man. I don't like watching Machida fight because I find him boring, nothing more. I get why people like him, but it's not my style.

    Doesn't mean I can't appreciate a good ground war, etc. but when guys are standing I like action. I know his methods are effective, but in my eyes he is only concerned with walking away with a W and not how the fight is seen. Which is totally ok, but not my kind of fighter.

    i rewatched the tito/machida fight. Smart fighter is all, he just goes HARD when he sees an opportunity. At the end of round one he has a HUGE bodylock takedown and tito was saved by the bell.

    Thiago Sucks I dont see what the allure to him is. He telegraphs and punches slow as hell. He will have a field day with thiago.

    Thiago's GnP is sloppy and he looked gassed after the Mendes fight.

    Let's hope Machida's ground game is up to snuff if it goes there.

    Where's the evidence for Silva being able to win period?


    I do see Machida eventually losing to someone(not my final opinion), but it certainly won't be coming from Thiago.

    If it finishes before the end of the three rounds it will be Thiago

    If it goes to decision it will be Lyoto
