In your World maybe, yes^^


If you fight a guy like MAchida it does!

Otherwise you just sign your defeat paper right away..
There's really no point in debating with you about this fight, is there? Looks like you've got your mind made up and no one but you is right?

Forrest would be an ideal replacement IMO. He's a regular training partner of Couture, is always in shape and has a massive gas tank. I probably wouldn't pick him to win but Forrest would certainly present challenges to Machida (size advantage, top control) and could probably beat him if he was game.

Yeah I don't like this matchup for Forrest if it is the case. Hopefully Randy's all good and shows up in good shape come fight night.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

This would be so,SO disappointing.

It's not like Randy has a lot of time to bounce back from injuries.

and a @ thejame for figuring out you can't debate with Bobby about Machida.....

Might as well try to tell me that Randy's not the GOAT.

Ever wonder why Griffin always gets thrown to the wolves.

If Machida attacks it'll be over by the 1st. If he sits and waits then it'll probably a late TKO or simply a UD victory. That would ultimately suck if Griffin lost cuz he's going to get blitzed by Shogun the second time around.

I honestly dont see Machida winning either fight. Coutoure is a horrible matchup for him, against Forrest, we will see what happens, but he is big and can take a punch. Not sure if he will be to take him down, but it will definately not end like the Silva fight.

When I talk about Lyoto, you better just believe the words I am saying. I carry just to much knowledge about this subject, so you better don't question them.

Lyoto is just a horrible matchup for Forrest!

This is just idioty mate. Don't believe everthing you read on here.

The truth is, it's the other way around!

Now if Lyoto wouldn't possess this incredible Sumo background and outstanding TDD and clinch game, then I would agree with you. But because it's not like that, it's the other way around!

Cause those aspects need to be weak in order to justify what you are saying.

Also, Forrest would have to strike with a much more superior striker cause Lyoto is not a moving target for a guy like Forrest who got ragdolled by Tito Ortiz who Lyoto shut down completely.

Honestly, Bobby, you know your MMA, but when it comes to Machida, all your rhyme and reason is completely thrown out of the window, and you overplay your cards about 40 times per Machida thread.

There isn't any point in debating with you, because in your eyes, Machida is some kind of infallible super warrior of the apocalypse, that is a 'terrible match-up' for just about every fighter under the sun. Apparently, no other differing opinion is valid, no one else has any good points to make, and everyone has to 'go and watch tapes' or ' listen to what I'm saying because I am the grandmaster of all MMA knowledge'

Contrary to what you may think, using over the top adjectives such as 'outstanding', 'incredible' etc to describe every facet of Machida's game, isn't going to make people change their opinion, or believe you more just because you post the same stuff like a broken record. Conversely, people are more likely to ignore you, if you come across like an infatuated 11 year old girl with a perverse obsession of Machida, and a shrine room dedicated to him with hundreds of Lyoto photos over the wall, love notes scribbled in lipstick, and a vial of his piss worn around your neck.

I actually cringe when I read most of your Machida posts, so dismissive are you of anybody else's opinion.

As it happens, I think Machida would and will beat both Couture and Griffin. I expect Lyoto to be far too quick for Randy and KO/TKO him in the first or second round. If the clinch occurs, then it will certainly be interesting to see what happens, however.

The Griffin match wouldnt be like Silva/Griffin, it would probably be very keenly contested and a bit of a war, but I'm very confident Lyoto would prevail and be victorious !

War Lyoto !

Rhyme and reason are totally overhyped on the forum. Nothing wrong with being a fan.

War Randy!
