I am going with Silva. He is a much better striker than Tito and can strike and move better than Tito as well. I think Lyoto may do well early, but once Silva gets his rythm and pace down it will be good night for Lyoto.

I'm gonna have to go with Machida on this one. I see him pulling off the decision. I actually thought Machida was boring in the begining but he's growing on me. I'm actually starting to like how he fights, very precise and elusive. Plus, Machida has fought tougher competition, Silva is good but I just don't see him winning.

I think Machida should win a decision in this fight. I'm fairly confident in my choice.

Top 3 Favorite Fighters

2. Glover Teixeira
3. Demian Maia

I think Lyoto will wipe the mat with Thiago, who is grossly over-rated IMO. I mean, Thiago was nearly knocked out by Antonio "The Child Snatcher" Mendes about a minute into their contest.

Lyoto's just too smart for Thiago's brawling style, he'll hopefully knock the grin off that smug bastard's face.

I hope to god the betting odds are good for Silva because I KNOW he's going to dominate.

I don't know how Lyoto Machida got so high on the list honestly. He hasn't fought a single top 10 light heavyweight yet...

He beat Sokodjou who at the time most people would have considered a top 10 and he just made one of the most dominant fighters ever look like an amateur. He definetly deserves to be rated where he is. He was also the first person to knock out Rich Franklin.

If Thiago can get close enough to clinch and take down Machida then I think he can get the job done. But I don't think that is going to happen he is just to quick and elusive. Until someone can actually corner him and trap him, I will keep thinking it can't be done.

Shamrock-Ortiz, I think your right if Chuck wins against Rashad, Dana is going to blow his load because he wont be able to contain himself. Forrest vs Chuck would happen before Forrest vs Machida.

That's very likely what will happen, but I strongly believe that every promotion needs its own resident smug bastard.
