I agree with Jord Jitsu. I know I have been very vocal about Machida being a tad bit overrated, but that doesn't mean that he doesn't deserve a title shot because, truth be told, he does.
Being a huge Rashad Evans fan, I think think that Quinton is a slightly more dangerous opponent for Rashad than Machida because the fact of the matter is no matter how good your chin is, if somebody has knockout power and they connect..it's pretty much over. That said, I still think that Rashad could beat Quinton due to superior speed and wrestling. He won't strike Jackson.
Rashad vs Machida is a more interesting match up for me, which is something I would not have said 3 months ago. I think the match has potential to be MOTY calibre for 4 rounds (we all know the first round won't deliver much due to their counter styles).
Why Do We Fall?
