So you are saying that because we know and have seen Lyoto's weaknesses and limits that we are better able to make an assessment of the winner of this fight?

My point was simply that neither of them have done anything impressive (for their respective careers) in their last few outings. People are talking about Lyoto easily disposing of Couture (which has never been done) when the reality is that this is probably going to be a very tough and difficult fight for both of them.

I get oldfan and Rusty Renegade confused constantly. They're like the middle aged conservative fathers of MMAF.




And the way BobbyCooper is building up Lyoto for this fight, if he so much as struggles or loses a round against Couture it's going to look awful for the Dragon.

WooW...i'm having so much fun reading this thread...

Jones' last 2 fights were really tiring for me as far as Forum activity is concerned.

Now i feel like i'm free and i can enjoy myself seeing other fans going at it. I almost forgot how it is, being SO neutral beofre a fight.

Great job guys - keep it up.

PS: i think Machida is gonna try an be elusive - again - he will run from Randy and try to counter him with quick combinations. He could easily tag him, but not in the 1st. And all this time Randy will look to cut him off and clinch with him, trying to work some dirty boxing and some TDs.

Interesting stuff.

.



BELIEVE!

It's a really tough fight to call in my eyes. Randy is good at controlling a fight and keeping a great pace. Great wrestling, clinch work, and dirty boxing. BUT there are instances where he loses concentration and leaves openings; just look at the Liddell fights.

I think against a guy like Machida, the worst thing you can do is leave an opening. He is super accurate and can exploit openings well. On top of it Machida is amazing at maintaining distance and has a sumo background that helps his TDD.

Tough fight to call but I'm leaning 55:45 Machida via decision or tko.
