That pic looks real. I remember when Machida came to Toronto to promote their UFC event. Those are all Toronto Maple Leaf jerseys in the background.

Somebody probably just gave him that photo to sign. lol

A poster on Sherdog brought that picture for Machida to sign.

Of course little did he know we would see the Machida face in the very near future but at least he put up a hell of a lot more fight against Jones than Evans did against him.

Yes it is. In the original photo, his shirt was green. You just can't trust photos as proof anymore.

That is a photoshop and not even a very good one. The light on him and the photo are not the same.

It looks a little Photoshopped, but it's hard to tell.

The lighting on this photo is actually fairly convincing. If you look closely at the light source in Machida's hand, it is hitting the border of the photograph. The reason the lighting may appear uneven is due to the fact that the photo is lighter than Machida's hand and given the low dynamic range of the phone can sensor that was used, it will blow out the detail in lighter colors.

In regard to the photograph itself (Of Rashad), it does appear to be more vivid than Machida which leads me to believe that it was added as a layer over what was most likely a legitimate photograph.

I am saying that Machida holding a photo is real, however, the photo of Rashad is not.
