I'm gonna say Rampage by KO. Yes Lyoto is elusive but i think Rampage would be able to tag him late in the second.

I'll be one of the few probably, but if both fighters are in good shape and prepared then I'll have to give it to Rampage. I think he'd do more standing and he'd be able to avoid most submission attempts on the ground. I'd give it to Rampage either by decision or late TKO

I pick Lyoto, mainly because we've seen Rampage struggle against technical gameplans.

Wow I dont see how people are picking Rampage (must be b/c people hate Lyoto ). But if Forrest can keep his distance and outstrike Rampage then I dont see how Lyoto would have any problems. Machida is much more technical and elusive than Griffin and Rampage couldnt KO him.

I say Machida by UD

Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

As much as I hate to admit it Lyoto wins this fight, he'll probably catch Rampage with a punch while circling away.
