Default Machida: "I'd like to test myself against Brock Lesnar."

Lyoto Machida's eyes are fully set on taking away the UFC light-heavyweight crown from Rashad Evans on May 23, but somewhere down the line, he'd like to entertain an even bigger challenge -- Brock Lesnar.

Read the rest here....

I know it's a bit early to talk about this stuff, since Machida hasn't even fought Evans yet.....but what are your thoughts on this one?

Personally, I don't think that Machida could keep Lesnar from taking him down. And I really think that Lesnar is way too strong for Machida.

Later.

has anyone ever taken machida down? granted brock lesnar is a HW and is HUGE but tito is a huge LHW who is renound for taking everyone down and machida brushed him off like a ragdoll everytime, made his takedowns look like an amatuers. brock would probably try to dive in for the takedown like he did against mir and herring but machida could easily sidestep that and evade

Machinda vs Lesnar would look like some of the old UFC matches, UFC1 etc., where Royce was fighting much bigger guys.

I am a HUGE Lyoto fan.. and don't really care for Brock... but the size difference is so vast.. If Brock took him down.. I don'tknow that he could get up.

Except this fight wouldn't be 30 minutes of Machida crawling inch by inch up Brocks back to finally sub him. For all of Royces greatest, he made for some extremely boring fights. Machida and Brock on the other hand would be quite amazing.
