The more I think about it the more I want to see this fight. It's going to be a very interesting fight with a lot of feints from both sides I believe. Technically you can't compare, athletically you also can't compare. Each have their advantages, but clearly JBJ has the advantage physically. From a mental standpoint he hasn't been knocked out yet so he will be more "ballsy" if you will. Anybody who gets KOed will be a lot more tentative; Rashad, Mirko, Arlovski, GSP, etc. Machida will be EXTRA cautious now. He was always a defense first type of fighter, but now probably even more so. This will draw in JBJ to make those flashy maneuvers. I don't think he has the patience to wait the way Machida does. As I said before when he goes for a jumping high kick or spinning elbow, Machida will have a split second to capitalize. I only wish Machida pressed the action more. He has such controlled bursts which does not really favor him in a three round match, but more so in a five rounder. He's got 25 minutes to plan, plot, and calculate his moves methodically. I actually expect JBJ to be the aggressor like Shogun and try to prove why he's the undisputed champion. Realistically the odds are in JBJs corner right now, but I would not rule out Machida. In fact if the odds were favorable I would place a bet on em. It would be all the more sweeter when he pulls off the "upset."

It could end by the 1st, but I don't think so. I expect it to go into championship rounds. The first round is the most critical. If JBJ takes Machida to the ground and hurt em in the process then it'll be a short night. If Machida can dodge his high flying maneuvers, counter em and or take em to the ground softening him up a bit then we got a fight. That will shake up JBJ's confidence a bit.

But before then we got Rashad.

An anonymous benefactor has graciously decided to put up the credits I require for this transaction. He shall remain nameless. I accept your challenge, Mr. Cooper, and will be placing 300,000 credits on Randy Couture.

Machida's style doesn't lead to guy gassing. A standing fight for 25 minutes where you only have a few exchanges is not wrestling and grappling on the mat for 5 minutes.

Id say he dosnt have to survive 5 rounds with Lyoto i think he could probably finish Lyoto in 2nd or 3rd by GnP. Though if it would stay standing for 5 rounds i could defenetly see Lyoto outpointing JBJ though its very unlikely cause Bones got too good wrestling.

I don't hate Machida, I think your Machida love goes to your head. How about you tell me how ten solid exchanges in a 25 minute fight is the same at grappling and wrestling for 25 minutes? It's not a tiring, plain and simple.

I don't see how thats a dumb comment. Machida's style doesn't make people gas, he moves away from strikes and goes for counters. Unless a fighter just goes wild swinging like a madman, I really don't see a fighter gassing in a pure striking match vs Machida.

well...not really a waste when you finish fights, but he really tires himself out, he was really tired in the 2nd round of the shogun fight, in the bonnar fight he was also very tired

he still needs to learn how to pace himself, he destorys guys now but it wont be like that forever, if some1 can take him into to deep waters, in the 4th and 5th round, i think they can beat him, he will be way too tired come 4th and 5th round IMO

for now at least, he has the conditioning to last 5 rounds IMO no doubt, just doesnt know how to pace himself for a 5 round fight though...he barley knows how to pace himself for a normal 3 round fight

thats a big weakness he needs to work on
I completely agree... He was gassed at the start of the second round in the Shogun fight :/ If he's gonna stay champ he needs to work on that.
