Machida is incredibly boring and I find his lack of wanting to entertain the fans who pay him rather disturbing. Machida isn't the class act that people like Franklin are. Someone should Sean Sherk him and lay on him for three rounds and get a decision on him. Cruel irony.

Shogun's ground game is excellent but it's not really submission based.

Nogueira and Babalu have nasty submission games but aren't in the UFC.

The only real excellent grapplers at 205 right now are Forrest, Shogun and Thiago.

MAchida is the fukn man, one of my favourite things about him is his sweeps, they are the shiz. Machida v Sam Hoger is such an awesome match and really underrated. Ill admit i found the heath fight a bit less fun then his other fights, but his Tito, Sokki, Nak and Hoger fight were awesome. Can't wait to see him as the champ

It would never happen because Machida would submit Sherk fairly quickly. I know he isn't what you like, but the dude is completely a class act.....he has never disrespected an opponent and he beats them completely everytime. I'm sorry that you think that way but if Sherk tried to stand with him, he would get knocked out so quickly it isn't even funny.

fight with Hoger was a great fight
I could watch it all day
Lyoto's striking looks very crisp and like you said sweeps Sam almost at will

great fight

sherk wouldn't be stupid enough to walk away from the ufc to take a ridiculous fight like that

on topic, machida is a problem...and no one has been able to figure him out....no one has even won a round against him

Look, we may not agree with the UFC's strategy of pushing more exciting fighters over better fighters but it's the way it is and probably always will be. And Lyoto should know that.

I thought he might have turned the corner with the Sokoudjou fight but it will be interesting to see what happens against Thiago.

Machida is an amazing fighter and imo a top 5 LHW. He will beat Silva and whether he gets a title shot right after or not he will eventually get one and he will be champion.
