5K on the most consistently boring fighter in the UFC. If I have to suffer through his craptacular style I may as well earn some vBookie points off of it...
65k Thiago Silva u guys will see the next LHW champion in this fight and his name Thiago....
I would gladly lose my 5k to see someone lay a beating on Machida.
Beaten better competition? He's beaten Tito, BJ Penn, Rich Franklin
Those fights were more than 5 years ago (except for the Tito embarassment where he fought with a little Starnes in him) and they were not in the UFC. Hey 5 years ago Hughes beat up Trigg, where his his title shot?
Sokoudjou is really overrated.
No kidding, didn't he just lose last weekend in his Affliction debut? He has NO cardio, otherwise he would be doing well.
All I am saying is that it isn't his fault he hasn't fought big names.
Yes it is, if he were not such a boring fighter they would have lined him up with all the big name fighters by now. The UFC does not want to see it's fights decided by the judges, and for good reason with idiots like Cecil Peoples scoring fights. It's not as exciting and not as fair as a fight where the fighters determine the outcome. Machida knows this, and frankly I think the UFC should not give him a title fight until they feel like it. I get what you are saying about it not being his fault, well in as much as he does not "literally" have Joe Silva's job yes that's true, but in the sense that he dictates his style it is entirely his fault.
