It won't let me rep you, but I would if I could.

Not surprising, Machida was going nowhere fast at LHW.

Tim Kennedy isn't a big name my any means. But the dude is legit. He has wins over Mayham Miller, Trevor Prangley, Robbie Lawler, Melvion Manhoef, and other UFC vets...

I don't really have a problem with this fight. If Machida wants to prove that he can be a tough match-up for Weidman, he needs to beat guys like Tim Kennedy.
There's so many other exciting fights for him at 185 lbs. I'm glad he's finally decided to make the drop.

No, it doesn't.
If you wanna get technical, he was a Green Beret. Those guys don't **** around.

I hate this match up as I'm a machida fan and Kennedy is kind of a downgrade of an opponent in my opinion. It should be an easy fight for Machida. However looking at the context, Machida is coming off a lost, and this i a event for the troops.

Weird fight for Lyoto to take. I don't think most casuals even know who Kennedy is.

Not a bad fight, Lyoto is coming off a loss and dropping a division, so any opponent coming off a win is a rightful opponent.

First look you'd pick Machida, but for the facts stated above, I'm not so quick to put money on him. Ok he thought he beat Davis but, a 20lb weigh-in weight drop at this stage is quite significant.
