Thiago Silva "Machida runs more then he fights"

Quote:
“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.”
Well Thiago has the gameplan I think he should and he's certainly confident in himself.

What a moron. He's going to counter the fact that machida counter attacks by...attacking...Yeah that'll work!

Machida's got this hands down.

No, you really haven't. You almost got your block knocked-off by Antonio "The Child Molester" Mendes, I expect Lyoto to make you look as over-rated as I think you are.

If he fights like he says he will, not so sure. To beat those kind of fighters, i think its either all in, or all out. Go for the kill, or be very patient and wait for Machida to stop stepping out of range.

However, you are(well the rest of Machida fans as well) counting on the fact that machida's counterstriking is perfect and unbeatable. Sokoudjou managed to land a few hard shots before he was down and dominated.

Im not saying Thiago has any kind of striking power or speed like Sokoudjou , but his gameplan is not a bad idea, IF he has the tools to actually do it..

But in any case, i see this fight going down more than once.. if Machida has too much pressure, he will clinch, takedown, LnP and wait for a moment to pass and try submissions.

I also see Machida winning, but i honestly dont care about this fight, i dont know much about Thiago Silva, only what kind of fighter he is, and he is cocky. He can be undefeated as well, but his resume is not as good in my opinion.

Just look a little more about his interviews.. says Houston Alexander and James are harder opponents than Machida, something like that. I guess he just meant though as in dangerous at being hurt. It would be ridiculous of him to get a title shot, i have no idea what he is talking about. Same for Machida.


And its not like he traded much with Houston Alexander either, he just put him down and finished him.

I think Thiago will push the pace get this to the ground and win the fight from there.

Thiago is really skilled on the ground and he trains at a fantastic gym where his striking will keep improving.

Sitting on the outside and waiting for Machida is retarted so this idea is much smarter.

I'm definately going to be looking forward to this fight. Thiago has quite the resume although he hasn't beaten anyone worthy of mention. I see Lyoto frustrating him and subbing him in the third round.

Does it not occur to anyone that this is what most of Machida's opponents planned to do before they actually got into the cage with him?
