That happened against Tomaz Drawl in a fight that had so many punches anyone would gas.
I doubt this fight will have that many punches I think the focus will be on Thiago coming foward trying to get Lyoto to the ground.
I predict Lyoto going down after a vicious kick.
If it goes to the ground it will be to thiago's advantage. I don't see Thiago outright taking Machida down tho. It's going to be a strike that takes it to the ground.
