Machida should turn the script and attack. It'll confuse em. It's always easier to stalk, but when you're put on the defensive you're reactive. Everybody knows what the LHW holder does. He runs backwards with his hands and arms held out. Therefore I would like to see a flying armbar or see his (Machida) sumo clinch and trip takedown while on the offense. We've never seen the LHW title holder on the ground yet.
Machida won't be able to play defensive forever. We've learned this in the second round. Stretch Armstrong covers too much ground.
Machida by KO 2nd round.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
