Who has a better chance of beating Rashad Evans, Jackson or Machida?

I personally think both would beat him. I think Rashad is great but i think Jackson is better than him and he is also very similar to him which is why i think it would be a stand up fight that imo Jackson takes it. Machida style is so awkward that many fighters would find it hard to beat him and i think this would include evans.

These would be awesome fights no matter who won I'm sure.

I said Machida would win because of his awkward style and "elusiveness" :P I think Rashad fights exactly how Machida likes his opponents to.

Rampage on the other hand, fights how Rashad wants his opponents to. Rashad is (in my opinion) a great deal faster than rampage, but still packs a good punch and probably has a ton more in the conditioning department.

I went with Machida, although i think Rampage will beat him too, but i see Machida just picking him apart from start to finish. Where as it would be a tough fight for Rampage stylistically , But i still think Rampage would beat Machida.

Hmm, interesting points but I have to disagree with many of them. I don't think Rashad would make the mistake of fighting how Machida wants him to fight. I see Rashad, being the intelligent fighter that he is, coming up with a very complex game plan and countering the counter fighter.

You were right in most of what you said about Rampage except that Rampage has EXCELLENT conditioning. Swimming really boosted his cardio up and he has shown he can go for 5 rounds and not be too gassed.

Both could beat Rashad, but Rampage could do it faster and more efficiently.

I think both of these fights would be pretty exciting to see for different reasons. I still have Rashad losing to either opponent but in my head its about 51%-49% in favor of the other guy. It really depends on who shows up with their A game. If Rashad shows up trying to clown either of these guys he's gonna eat a ton of leather. All either of them should do is fade back after a flurry as if they gassed a little. Then Rashad will do some funny kiss my balls sign like he did to Forrest, and get dropped by the second flurry that was waiting for him the whole time. Instant highlight!

This poll would be better with options where rashad can win. Not saying he will, though. I have no idea.

Machida all the way.

Rampage is nowhere near invincible. I know MMAth is not very useful but in this case I think it would be: If Forrest can devise a gameplan to beat Rampage, I surely think Rashad could. Especially with Greg Jackson.

But Machida. No one has figured him out yet.
