I did pick T. Silva to win thinking he was going to be the one to stop Machida, but I in now way dislike him..it was more of a guess of who would win and I thought that Silva would have it...but Machida just destroyed the guy.

Machida definitely deserves the next title shot.After his demolishing of thiago, the UFC can easily market him.

After the Tito fight, he started to really win me over, but after this I am really excited to see the guy against Rashad. I was indifferent on whoever won tonight, but picked Machida to win.

I have always dissed on Lyoto Machida, I guess it was just his awkward fighting style or something. Never gave him credit. I openly admit, I was completely wrong about Machida and apologize for ever doubting him.

Well, at least we have 1 person ready to admit "Machida hate" defeat, even if it was a long decsion.

Man, he looked awesome tonight. I can't wait for the fight against evans.

I had some points on silva that I expected to lose, but I thought it was going to at least be a little bit more of a fight than it was. Damn!! Machida is the last guy I would have picked for a first round ko like that.

Machida v Rashad..make it happen!! Machida looked great again tonight, everyone just seems to play right into his game. I hope he gets the shot next.

Wow!!! I thought Machida was awesome, and really liked his elusive style as I think it is the most intelligent way to fight, and tonight he proved just how effective it can be.

Machida is unbelievable, and that performance has put him up there as one of my top 3 favourite fighters.

In my opinion they fed Silva to the biggest lion at LHW tonight and he is just not in the same league as Machida

Bring on Evans, that will be a killer fight.

Haha, I love how Machida gets credit NOW for his talent when he's fought better competition in the past.

Ironic.

You're just a cook...
