That won't ever happen! Lyoto 1 Round KO





IF Sumo doesn't prevail my friend, I am gonna be gone!



I don't get it either.. It's like people like to shit on Lyoto's accomplishments from here on.
Bobby, it's you who is dreaming and it's you being disrespectful.

Thinking that a guy who couldn't even beat a fat slow rampage is going to walk over CAPTAIN AMERICA??

Doesn't seem very smart....

All my disagreements with Coops have been speculations regards Lyotos personality. When it comes to Machida as a fighter, its a different story. His style turns me on.( The dragons that is... not coopers )

Couture was the first UFC superstar. Royce was cool and that... but lets face it, he was boring. Randy burst onto the scene, UFC13, and was smashing fools using fantastic strength, technique and skill. I sat up and thought, "wow... this sport is getting somewhere!"

But that was then. I think Randy is gonna struggle to do anything meaningful to Machida on the ground... if it even gets there... which I doubt.

I am not disrespectful, I am just being realistic about two fighters, where one fighter fights in his absolut Prime and the other who is far past his Prime. On top of that the one guy is an absolut elite fighter and the other never reached such a high level, even when he was in his absolut Prime.

I wonder how Lyoto would have faired against Brock Lesnar. Randy came in at Lyoto's walk around weight against him.

WAR CIGANO

Now how can you say this, Randy is a 5 time UFC champion in 2 weight classes, how much more "elite" can you get. I am a big fan of both fighters but Machida has a long way to go before he proves he can accomplish in his career the level of "elite" status that Randy has.

Oh thats an easy one. It's because of the Evolution of a Sport which was in his baby shoes back then.

Totally agree. MMA is still evolving. If the 90s were baby shoes, then the 00's were adolescents...the next decade is going to make the guys from the 00's look one dimensional and unathletic; to compete at the highest level in the coming decade, fighters are going to have to be trained in all facets of the game from a young age - no more "I'm a wrestler and learned some boxing", and they're going to be a hell of alot more athletic - we're starting to see it just a little bit of that now.
