I've always thought Forrest would take it to Machida, Machida isn't known for one shot KO's and Forrest would get hit a lot but he is relentless. I think he can frustrate Machida, get him on the ground and pound him out or win on points.

I don't think he could get Machida down for the life of him but he's a massive, massive LHW and Machida is probably the smallest one or close to it. But you're definitely right, he's got a great chin and hopefully he wouldn't come in intimidated like he did against Silva.

While I would pick Machida over Forrest, Forrest may have a decent shot because he can outwork/outpoint you as long as he doesn't get KO'd, and Machida has probably the least power of any title contender at LHW.

Forrest vs. Machida would look like Anderson vs. Forrest!

There is no way in hell Forrest could take Lyoto down. He would have to strike with one of the best in the business which is sad news.

In your World maybe, yes^^

And I don't understand why people act like taking a fight on short time is that much of a disadvantage. Only way it is, is if the guy is out of shape.

According to the very skeptical rumor Forrest is in shape. He just had a fight a couple of months ago. Forrest has crazy cardio. If he is in shape Lyoto would be at the disadvantage because at least Forrest has been helping Randy gameplan and train for Machida. He would be more ready for Machida than Machida would be of him.

Unless a guy take a fight out of shape it doesn't matter. Both guys get the same time to train and gameplan for eachother. And I would assume Forrest is still in great shape.

That said, I don't see what Forrest offers in a fight with Machida. He doesn't do well with quick fighters. He doesn't have amazing wrestling. I guess I could see him winning the fight on the cards by being more aggressive.

I highly doubt this is true, at least on the Forrest part. Did he not injury his foot last time out? I thought he was out until summer.
If you fight a guy like MAchida it does!

Otherwise you just sign your defeat paper right away..

It really won't matter much guys.. both fights would end in a Knock Out very early!

I find Griffin vs Machida alot more interesting however after all the build up for this fight, I would rather see Randy vs Machida just so we can see the master strategists against each other. This fight will probably be Randy's last too.

Randy/Machida is among the most interesting match ups as of recently.

I really hope there is no truth to this.
