Machida has quickness and intelligence on his side. (Unlike Coleman...he has lost his mind.) He is a very smart fighter. Someone with a soild chin, decent stand up but a great ground game will beat him. I have watched many of his early fights, I wasn't impressed by his ground skills. BUT that was a long time ago. Not taking anything away from him, but there is always someone better.

My top 3 to fight him

Dan Henderson
Wandy
Rampage

Let me rephrase...someone who will actually use the ground game? haha. My opinion Rashad isn't in the same league as the guys i listed.....yet. Before everyone gets exicited and say I'm a Rashad hater...look at whom the guys I listed have fought...more experienced with great caliber fighters for many years.

Anyway.....haha

I agree I have always felt Rashad was overrated. His stand-up game needs help big time. I think anyone fighting against Machida will need to have all bases covered. He is very accurate and I believe his mental game is hard core he is very collected. I am not too bad of a Rashad basher, but I am just calling it how I see it..
