He will be back
I just wish he would lose some of that muscle mass again
He looks soooo heavy in there these days.. I want the small elusive Machida back, who weighed in at 202 Ape. I think it hinders him way too much.
I did not only lose all my credits^^ but also my Parlay bet with Cain.. Well, thats betting I guess haha
Good point, man. Lyoto was consistently coming in lighter before.
I think last night though the main issue he was a bit gun shy and more importantly did not attampt to get Rampage down early in the fight.
I think a few early take downs would have made all the difference in his confidence and also scored him some much needed points in the first round.
I honeslty do not think it would have taken much for Lyoto to steal either of the first two rounds with a take down and gnp or a flurry like we saw in the third.
You are right though, Bobby, this will help him shake off his first tko loss, and if he just comes in a little more aggressive with strikes and take downs I think he will easily take the rematch.
