I think this will be one hell of a fight. Mauricio Shogun Rua is claiming all his injuries are healed, and he was impressive in his last fight against an admittedly aged Liddell.

Lyoto The Dragon Machida, on the other hand, is one of the most elusive and best defensive fighter today, and has shown he is in top form against even the quickest of opponents [Rashad Sugar Evans].

Personally, I see Lyoto taking this one, merely because Shogun is a bit slower. He'll hae to find some way to corner Lyoto Machida in the octagun before unleashing a fury, and that's been proven to be no easy feat.

Im going Shogun by second round TKO. Shogun has had two tune up fights and will be looking unbeatable like he did in Pride when he steps into the cage for this one. I think he is gonna kick lyoto's legs and slow him down enough to catch him with a big punch.

Damn, I hate this matchup. I will feel bad for whoever loses. In my eyes Machida will take it, but Shogun will pose more problems than anyone so far.

I think Machida is one of those guys that will continue to suprise people with his dominance. People will always know and admit that he is good but some will also say things like "well hes never faced this challenge before" only for Machida to dominate the fighter they think has a chance. I like Shogun very much and I think he is back to his PRIDE form but I dont think it matters because I think Machida and Anderson are in a league of their own. I got Machida winning by 2nd or 3rd round tko without ever being in serious danger throughout the fight. Of course he is not literally unbeatable and Shogun could do it but I really dont think Machida is losing on Oct. 24

I want Machida to win just because he is mysterious and brings a style that we don't see in this sport. Shogun is a very dangerous man and when he catches someone, they don't walk away from a fight without a few bruises. I see Lyoto winning by UD but only after taking a few hard shots from Shogun.

I like how everyone that posted so far is "potentially" thinking Shogun has "potential" for an upset. unlike somebody.. But I could'n't agree more, he has all the tools for an upset. Machida will be heavily be favored, no doubt. But I would'nt count out Shogun just yet. I say Shogun by mid rounds TKO stoppage GnP .... if they hit the ground...lol
