The only way i see Silva winning is by turning the fight into an ugly brawl, if you get my meaning, Machida is a "dancer" and will quite happily stay on the outside and pick Silva apart, where as Sivas only real hope in a 3 round fight is literally to stand toe to toe and make it a real ugly brawl.

oh and just for fun, i would like to see Thiago dance around for the first 5 mins, to see if we can beat the record of less strikes thrown for a full round... or if the ref will give point deduction for not engaging


(Im kidding..)

Regardless of trying to read past Machida opponent's minds, it seems to me that everyone wants to push the pace on Machida. But when they do and get a taste of what many on this board call "pitty-pat punches" that Machida throws, I think it hurts. And as a result, they have to be careful moving forward.

No one has gone against Machida saying "Okay, I'm going to let this be a boring fight"

So having a guy say "I'm going to do something no one else has done... I will move forward aggressively on Machida and not let him do what he does." doesn't hold a whole lot of weight with me.

Especially a guy that hasn't fought any top competition (make the excuses you want about Machida, but he has faced tougher competition than Silva has) and has been rocked pretty badly as recently as his last fight.

We'll see come fight night, but I'm all in on Machida.

Thats what I think too. Everyone says I will press the action against machida. But in the cage they dont do it. Because everytime you attack machida, you get hit.

Funny thing Thiago comes from Chute Boxe those guys love to be hit lol.

Look at Shogun, Ninja, Wandy, and Cyborg.

I doubt he will curl into a ball so he can avoid getting hit by Machida.

Thiago will come foward and their is a chance he gets knocked out but I doubt he will be scared to push the pace.

I think machida will pick silva apart from the start, although people call machida's evasive syle 'running away' its beside the point that a good fighter knows how to counter punch and avoid getting hit. Surely to me this is a better option than hitting a guy and then letting them have there turn ( a kind of old style musketeer battle if you know what i mean? )

Exactly, the toughest fighter he has faced was Houston Alexander. Houston "My chin is made of fine china and my ground game sucks" Alexander. THiago Silva will get whomped in this fight. Machida will make him look extremely bad.

there are fighters that are afraid to take a punch to get to the inside (almost everyone machida has faced) and then there's people who say "lyoto isn't knocking me out, what the hell should I be afraid of?".

You guys can say machida's better all you want, a guy who's willing to walk through machida's counters is the guy that can hit him in the face.

Machida's been hit in the face by Sam freakin' Greco. Dude's chin is solid.

Also, it's going to be tough to hit Lyoto when you're constantly getting punched and kneed in the face.

machida tries to throw knees and he's deffinatly going to the ground. Without question. and you don't want to be there with Thiago on top of you.

thiago has yet to fight anyone without leaving them in a doctor's care, I don't expect this fight to be any different.
