    Rashad by takedown, wrestling, stand and repeat. If he stands he will have some problems.

    Silva has no wrestling or chin. Unfortunately jibber jabber will walk away with the win however he wants it.

    i don't think Rashad will go for a takedown. He's gonna get knocked out

    fucking :werd:

    Just because Silva gets knocked out by Machida, doesnt mean he has a weak chin. Not saying Rashad does either, but Silva has more stand up power.

    I think Thiago could do better against machida in a rematch. If he actually has a game plan instead of just falling right into machida's trap he has plenty of KO power.

    No way, Thiagos style is way too sloppy and on-the-fly (i'm tired as shit and can't think of a better way to describe it). Machida would capitilze on every mistake or sloppy movement he made.

    I could see Rashad KOing Thiago, he's stubborn and Thiago is aggressive and somewhat reckless. I could see Rashad refusing to move forward and making Thiago come to him; Then he'll just plant his feet and hit him with a huge KO punch like he did to Liddell.

    Although he'll probably just grind out a decision. Either way, Rashad wins this imo.

    What has Thiago ever done to make you think that? Just because he has KO power doesn't mean he'll ever be able to come close enough to Machida for it to matter.
