Agreed. He would totally ruin Rashad. He was incredible tonight. Total devestation. He would probably beat Rampage by decision.

Those takedowns of his are borderline unfair, great performance. Dana/Joe Silva, do the right thing and give this man a shot

He fought tonight? Really? I did see a boring match but I could have sworn that was Karo fighting? Are you sure Machida fought? :laugh:

I'm a wrestler, not really a karate guy, so somebody else might give a better technical explanation, but there were a couple times where he and Silva engaged in a clinch, and Machida took his legs completely out from under him with a sweep and landed in his guard. It was an incredibly fluid move, looked very tough to stop. I'm normally not a Rogan fan, but he said it right - the point is to inflict damage to your opponent while minimizing the damage you take. That's Lyoto Machida in a nutshell

Oh, okay, I think I mistook when you said "borderline unfair" as meaning almost a "foul" or "no-no" as far as the rules go, but I just misunderstood what you were saying.

Thank you. :)

I have to admit, I wasn't impressed with his running tactic when he fought Tito, but last night, he showed a ton of offense and looked amazing. I've been doggin' the guy for his style but if he fights like that again, I'd love to see him continue fighting. No doubt he will be champ within a year.

he will have the title in his next fight. i dont think rampage or rashad either one will have an answer for his style. rampage is not the guy to sit back and watch and i dont know about rashad he has suprised a lot of people before with his speed so it would be a good fight to see his counter punches in.
