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?

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
