Lyoto's TDD and wrestling negate his size disadvantage. Not saying he'd be in contention (JDS is a training partner/would kill him, Velasquez would terminate him etc) but I think he'd break top 10 without a lot of struggle.


Lmao this idea that Machida has this super human TDD is hilarious to me. The guy has not faced a single opponent to prove that he has GOOD tdd much less GREAT.

Randy and Ortiz should not even be mentioned and Rashad Evans was still so focused on striking that i think he maybe had 1 lazy take down attempt on Machida?? and i am not even sure that he did that.

From that you believe that Machida would stuff Lesnars take downs??

Jesus crist... people will buy in to anything.
