vs Wandy? Would love to see Wandy beat down machida.
my god i pray he fights Wanderlei. knock machida right out of title contention.
Wouldn't happen. This would just be another loss to Wand's record.
He is too slow and too much of a wild slugger looking for that perfect punch. Machida cruise to a UD over W.Silva
come on be realistic no way machida would beat wanderlei...
i like machida i think hed do good in the LHW division vs good competition but not vs wandy or rampage i can see him winning a decision over forrest but thats gonna be hard for him.. i can see him fighting chuck tho and beating chuck. but hopefully he fights thiago silva so we can see if thiago is for real
how would wanderlei beat machida? how would machida beat chuck?
machida will. mark my words DESTROY wanderlei in a fight, you can quote me on that. Machida's defense and footwork would make wanderlei look like a b-rate fighter. especially against the wanderlei of today. if wanderlei charges in hes gonna catch a straight punch then be stepped around. He wouldn't have a strength advantage either. tito is a strong 205r and look how machida manhandled him.
Chuck liddell is the worst match up for machida in the 205 lbs division. hes a strong puncher, great takedown defense, long limbs, good chin, and most importantly a counter-fighter. you'd have an extremely boring fight with both guys not wanting to engage. Chuck could probably keep machida away with his punches and pull out a decision or possible ko. id favor liddell.
but seriously, wanderlei? and not chuck? wanderlei is a dream opponent for machida, and chuck is a nightmare.
