Who will defeat Machida?

Who do you think is gonna break Lyoto "The Dragon" Machidas undefeated streak. In my opinion I think that the person to defeat Machida is gonna be Rashad Evans if they give him another chance. I think Rashad Evans can beat Machida this time because now he would know what to expect. Who do you guys think can beat Machida?

Probably Matt Hughes.

But really, A. Silva would have a good chance but they wont fight. Shogun and Dan Henderson are the only 2 people in the division that I give a chance too right now but they would both lose. Jon Jones may be able to beat him in a couple years. He needs more experience and when he gets it he will be a monster.

There is already a thread on this somewhere but I didn't feel like looking for it.

Why not Michael Bisping?

Because he does not possess the skills to beat Anderson Silva. Silva is on a whole nother level. I think he would beat Bisping 10 times out of 10. Imo Bisping is one of the most overrated fighters in the world. He's good, but he's not elite imo.

Bisping isnt overrated but he is a superstar in UK and I think if you gave him a chance Bisping would have a chance at Lyoto Machida.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: The first person to beat Macheeto will be the first person to effectively use leg-kicks against him.

It's clear (and he's even said) that his style depends on staying away from people, getting it and out QUICKLY. Without that speed, he's going to have a MUCH harder time.

Leading the Thiago Silva bandwagon

But Bisping has pinpoint accuracy when it comes leg kicks and face shots so I really think Bisping has a chance at beating Lyoto Machida, but he has to pressure him alot.

I don't think so, one of Rashad's biggest tools was being able to fake people and make them react. Machida called his bluff every time. That and the fact that he had a solid chin, knowing he is able to be KO'ed may completely change him for the worse, we really won't know till we see him in another fight.

But dont you think now Rashad would understand that Machidan dosent fall for his fake so he would change up his whole gameplan. And this time he would think of pressurin Machida more.
