Both these fights are really interesting matchups. I feel bad for Machida though, Tito is a chump who is more concerned with acting than fighting and it's his last fight on his deal. Machida is a title contender in that division and it doesn't help to fight people who aren't even ranked. Strange thing about Jardine and Silva, I mean it's a fight we all want to see but Jardine beat Chuck and Chuck beat Silva, just seems like Jardine should be fighting someone else on there way up, but who?
Also, Rashad and Thiago, time for Rashad to finally get a taste of some real dangerous competition, good matchup for both of them although I see Rashad losing by tko
tito is a chump.. thats ur opinion. He's concerned with acting? how about he's concerned with promoting fights, and if he wasnt so good at promoting fights, chances are the ufc wouldnt be what it is today. Machida is a title contender and tito isnt, but the truth is that machida hasnt been tested against someone that can tell us how good machida really is. He's got a respectable resume, but you have to take it for what its worth. He took Penn (a light weight) to a decision three years ago, he KOed franklin 5 years ago and he beat sokoudjou who himself was a question. For machida to deserve a title shot, he needs to make it through someone who is tried and true, someone who has proven their ability at that level. This will not be an easy fight for either opponent and it will tell us if tito is healthy and back on track (even if he doesnt resign), or if machida is the real deal and can handle any type of fighter.
jardine beat griffin, good win, then he lost to houston alexander.. big loss, then he beats chuck liddel, another big win. Jardine is still a question and throwing him up against silva will give us an answer, if he can tool silva, then the guy deserves a title shot, or deserves to battle it out with the winner of machida/tito for the title shot given the timeline.
Rashad needs to go up against someone with a sprawl
