Machida vs Rua II in May

What do you guys think? Both guys have enough time to prepare, change tactic and study each other based on their previous fight. Who will reign supreme and get the belt?

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

Lyoto defends his belt in an outstanding way! His mind is just to far ahead. He will come back wich such an incredible gameplan nobody would have ever imagine. He wins either through unanimous decison or via TKO or KO.
This guy dosn't make the same mistake twice, i guarantee you that

Exactly my thoughts. I think in the second battle, it will be much more about mentality than pure skills. And I belive Machida is far better in that aspect.

Wich magical gameplan?
Come on you know that probably the best Muay Thai fighter in MMA history is his best friend. If anybody can work out an gameplan nobody expects to see, then it is Lyoto. Don't you think he will be able to catch some of those kicks?? Or take Rua down like in his early career?
