my bet would be after his shin or knee come in contact with Machida's face .

he's not Tito Ortiz. He doesn't take people down he knocks them down.

Thats all very well providing Thiago can hit Machida. After all we all know how elusive Lyoto is.

Have you watched many of Thiago's fights? Guys have thrown in the towel thinking their forarms are broken blocking thiago's kicks.

Machida is an awesome counterpuncher but the real danger of catch and counter is that you do in fact catch some of them.

Yeah just Like he knocked down Houston Alexander and just like how he knocked down Antoino Mendes. Houston got him to the ground and Thiago swept him. He took Antonio Mendes down in a desperate attemt because he was getting worked on his feet. He wont be able to get the Elusive one to the ground. And I dont think he will be able to conect with Machida...But like I said before, I know that this is a fight and anything can happen. But I believe that Machida will win this one....

Does thiago have that much of an advantage on the ground, i think shown through the Hoger and Sokki fights it's incredibly tough to keep him on his back, and Tito couldn't even take him down... and they are both brazilian BJJ black belts, but i dont know Thiago's other credentials on the ground

Thiago's BJJ is much much better. He had a pretty successful career in straight BJJ.

Machida's Karate is his real strength.

Ol' pillow hands won't finish Silva. I think I'm going to pick him, but it'll be by decision. I'm really hoping Silva KO's him though, or at least tests his chin.

I hope Silva KOs Machida, so we don't have to watch his boring a$$ fight in a championship fight.
