Negative/Boring = Loss

That's some sound logic you have there.

Suizida tried to tell me that Jardine's Techno viking monkey style was too much for Vera's overhyped skills but i was to busy nuthugging to listen to 'the truth'

At will pretty much means any time he wanted. Sokoudjou made 2 TD attempts and Machida didn't stop either (in turn meaning Sokky took down Machida whenever he wanted). The sweeps however are follow throughs post takedown. Randy would not get swept, and I doubt Machida's BJJ can even touch Randy's considering Jaracre counldn't sub him and Jacare has subbed Werdum, Gonzaga, Garcia etc..

Forum Bets: 2-0

Randy could probably crush Machida now if he came into the game well prepared. He Smashed Gonzaga who is a much stronger BJJ practitionor than Lyoto, and he beat up Tim Sylvia(whos striking game is nowhere near as technical or precise as Machida but who is a much harder hitter with a way better reach) like he was a big school yard bully too awkward from puberty to realize his eminent demise. So yes, Randy in his prime(after toppling Ortiz and abusing Chuck) would run right over Lyoto Machida. Lyoto is an amazing fighter, don't get me wrong, but he isn't the unbeatable demigod alot of people are saying he is. Its just gonna take one guy willing to eat a few of his licks to close in on him and show him the ceiling.
