DKent has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I'm confused with people who say leg kicks dont score points but nobody had a problem when Alves was legkicking Kos to oblivion and got a UD.

So you compare Rampage Jackson with Lyoto"The Dragon"Machida?!
Thats very funny

TBH Im surprised you would say that after the licking you gave shogun in your last post. If you honestly believe machida wont change his game even a bit for round 2 you must think he's ******* retarded.

What happened last time people complained about his style being boring? He changed his game up and took the LHW title with two impressive knockouts in a row. If you dont think he knows that fight could have gone either way and he needs to be better prepared for the next one then I'd say you're severely underestimating machida, and I can only hope shogun doesn't make the same mistake, for your sake.

For my sake, haha. Like I'll be somehow nonplussed just because of a fight outcome.

Machida hasn't shown a whole lot of adaptation ever since he became a striker instead of a grappler. I guess we'll see if he figures out a way to change his strategy.

All I know is that, Shogun only has to do the same thing one more time to rightfully win. Machida has to change his entire style. Which sounds harder?


And for you guys saying he trains with Silva, he can counter Shogun's Muay Thai... you think he JUST started training with Silva? It didn't help him too much in the first fight.

Judges are incredibly inconsistent. In Machida vs Rua, apparently leg kicks don't win a decision but in the Quinton vs Forrest fight, apparently they do. Judges have no idea what they're doing in there.

I see what you're saying, and in a way I agree with you. However, I do think Machida will go into the next fight with a fresh gameplan. I do not necessarily believe that Machida will come in and dominate Rua, nor do I believe Rua will dominate Machida. Personally, I think it will be another great fight, however this time I do believe there will be a decisive win, for whoever takes it. I know that Rua will be hungry after his questionable defeat, but I also know that Machida will be eager to show that he is for real this time.

For the record, I do believe that Rua won the first fight even though I wanted machida to win, I suppose I just have more faith in Lyoto than some others do, I really expect him to bring it in the 2nd fight.

Agreed with bolded part, this second fight is going to be FOTD if both of them bring their A-game.

Im glad we can agree on that. After their first fight I am definately becoming more and more of a Shogun fan, and I look forward to his future in the UFC as much as I did Machida after he took the title from Rashad.
