Machida seems to be reeeeally hard for his opponents to figure out. Rashad is damn fast, and has improved a lot over the years, but Machida just . . . hasn't really taken any damage from anyone yet. This is no slight to Rashad, but it's tough to bet against Machida right now.
I'm really curious to see him match up against all the big names in the LHW division (Rampage, Rashad, Chuck, Wanderlei, etc.). Would be really interesting to see.
I wouldn't be shocked if Machida worked his way through all of them. Then again, it's MMA -- anything can happen.
