Thiago Silva vs. Lyoto Machida at UFC 93
 
Quote:

One of the most expected bouts of UFC 89, Lyoto Machida and Thiago Silva would face each other in October, in a fight that would force one of them to know how a loss tastes for the first time. After Thiagoís injury, that forced the disappointing cancellation of the bout. After many rumors, some secure sources informed TATAME.com that this fight will still happen, and itís set to happen at UFC 93, in January 31st, in MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas. Stay tuned on TATAME.com for more news about UFC.

Sweet i am so glad this fight is still on, but it isn't till jan.

Sucks about the delay but I am very glad they are still going to fight. I love seeing two really good fighters that are unbeaten going at it. It's always interesting to see how the one fighter takes their first loss. I think it will be a great fight but I gots Machida in this one.

UFC 93 is going to be most probably the most stacked card ever. Potentially GSP vs Penn, Silva vs Rampage and Machida vs Silva so far.

Finally Machida gets a fight...........The match-up should be very interesting.

This is a huge fight I can't wait to see this I still think Thiago's pace will be too much for Machida.

That happened against Tomaz Drawl in a fight that had so many punches anyone would gas.

I doubt this fight will have that many punches I think the focus will be on Thiago coming foward trying to get Lyoto to the ground.

i got lyoto via total schooling....he outclasses thiago standing, has the wrestling to keep it standing if he pleases, and has the bjj to handle thiago if thats where he wants it...thiago's looked pretty amazing on the ground, but look who he's been fighting...houston, mendes....? not exactly cream of the bjj crop

i just think thiago silva is waiting to get exposed by a top fighter....he's cool cuz he's a bjj guy in a predominantly striker-based division, but lyoto isn't the best matchup for him....rashad (who he was supposed to fight @ ufc 84), wanderlei, rampage, would all be better opponents for him

thiago could beat some top 10 LHW's...just not this one...

I predict Lyoto going down after a vicious kick.

If it goes to the ground it will be to thiago's advantage. I don't see Thiago outright taking Machida down tho. It's going to be a strike that takes it to the ground.

I heard Rampage vs Silva was the co main after the Lesnar vs Couture fight.
