It'll end in TKO one way or another. JBJ will look to finish Machida and make an even bolder statement.

Machida will have to gun it and dictate the pace and not be pressed against the fence winging it. That's how he got clipped...he had no space to move. JBJ covers an immense amount of ground in a matter of seconds. He can not allow JBJ to stalk and dictate the distance or pace. Otherwise it's pretty much over.

So Machida has to do what he did against Bader and stand his ground constantly feigning jabs, crosses, and kicks. We don't know how JBJ responds to getting rocked or getting his head smashed on the ground (Anderson took tremendous amount of shots against Chael.) That's gonna take JBJ off his game plan because Machida usually takes a defensive posture. We already seen that it worked one round, but in the second JBJ changed his game plan and went to his bread and butter. So what's the point of taking a defensive posture if you know your opponent can adapt. Therefore it would be prudent to immediately force the action like the way Shogun did against Machida, the way JBJ did to Shogun and of course Chael vs Anderson.

I suspect a NYE card or super bowl fight with Overeem vs the winner of Cain and JDS.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
