This is an extremely interesting match-up... on paper. I just hope the fight can live up to it.

I picked Machida because regardless of how hardcore Mousasi fans try to convince us that he is legit I can't see him that way. He has no real wins over anybody of importance when they mattered. A lot of the times when he beat someone they were already going through a string of losses. I just hope this fight doesn't suck, Machida needs to go aggressive and look for the finish rather than hoping Mousasi creates and opening for one.

Machida Is An Absolute Beast When He's At His Best.

But Gegard... Boy Is He Being Overlooked Here. I Think He Catches Lyoto Here. And I Think He Puts Machida To Sleep.

I Think He Catches Machida When He's Coming In On A Knee To The Body Or When Machida Does One Of His Blitzes.

I feel like this is going to suck. Machida doesn't come forward a lot and Gegard is just going to circle around with that dopey look on his fave like he's walking through the mall and then they will go to a split decision. I really hope I'm wrong but I see that as likely.

I just don't see how Gegard is going to catch machida he couldn't catch whatever the hell his name was in Sweden and that guy looked slower than me.

Haven't been so excited for a fight since the last time Gegard fought. I really hope Machida tries to go forward at some point in the fight and ditch the back pedaling style. Otherwise we might indeed see a boring decision.

Lyoto should be favorite on paper but this is a close fight, Gegard has all the background needed to come in well educated and beat Machida at his own game.

Good job it's five rounds, this will be a very technical fight.

Not to throw excuses here BUT Latifi was a late replacement for Gegard. He went from a tall and lanky all around guy to a stocky wrestler in what, a weeks notice. He also had an injury of some sort and a lot to lose. Wouldn't have made much sense to go all in against a virtually no-named guy.

I think this is a tough fight for Gegard to win, but also a tough fight for Lyoto to finish... so, I have a bad feeling we may be looking at a fairly uneventful 25 minutes with Lyoto taking the UD.

Boy do I hope I'm wrong here... I would LOVE for The Dragon to collect yet another highlight reel knockout.
