“The opponents who have faced him attacked and stopped; I’ll have a different gameplan. I want to see how he deals with someone who’s in very good shape and attacks him for five minutes over three rounds. I’m not underestimating him. He’s a great fighter, but I’d bet on me. I’m not here to joke around. I have my goals, and I’m ready to beat Lyoto…. It will be a knockout in the first round … there aren’t any of his fights I really like. Lyoto’s a fighter who runs more than he fights. He’s not a fighter who will knock me out easily. He scores points, and I’ll make it hard for him to score. I already faced the toughest fighters. I believe it will be more of a psychological fight than a physical fight for me.”
Thiago is a skilled talanted fighter, but I don't think he will beat Lyoto at this point of his career. Although, I like Silva more than Machida: he went to the distance just once in his career, not to mention that he's a knockout artist, Machida is more of a "unanimous decision" artist + he's a bit boring and has no charisma whatsoever... Nevertheless, I'm rooting for Lyoto here.

Lyoto Machida is all about winning fights. His style is very difficult to figure out, and although he seems to be running away his opponents are eating kicks, punches, and knees. I'm not an MMA artist, but I would think landing strikes and not taking them is the way to go. Machida eta ochi horosho!

Favorite fighters:
BJ Penn
Nogueira Bros
Anderson Silva
Lyoto Machida
Demian Maia
Andrei Arlovski
