I had money on Machida by a long run. But definetly didnt think he would DOMINATE in that fashion.
Impressive

Definately potential for KO of the year imo. I had him by decision but was glad to see him get another exciting KO. I think now he will get the fan attention he has always deserved. I agree with Joe that the era of Lyoto has begun, I dont think anyone is going to beat this guy for a while.

The Dragon vs Rampage anyone?

if machida had no problems tagging rashad, who is pretty damn elusive himself, he will have no problems tagging cement feet rampage at will, and rampage is my favorite fighter.

Maybe Rashad can practice his dance routine in the hospital because he didn't get a lot of rehearsal time tonight in the cage.

I'm glad people are starting to truly see how good Machida is. I think he will hold the tittle for a long time.

me and my buddy were at buffalo wildwings watching and were on our feet yelling as Machida finished Rashad. I'm still pumped up about that win.

On a side note. I've alwasy liked Rampage but I don't see him lasting long against Machida. Machida is on a new level right now.

mma-core has the video up now. Its linked from youtube so I don't know how much longer that one will be up but I'm sure there are a few other sources.

Beautiful execution by Machida. I dont think Rampage has the answer either. If Anderson Silva goes to 205 it would be interesting or if Randy dropped back down one last time. Other wise Machida will be the 205 King for awhile.

I knew he was elusive but I thought Rashad would be able to hit him a bit more. After watching the countdown it looked like Machida dropped his hands quite a bit after engaging then backing out. I also had a question about his chin. Looked like Rashad hit him good once or twice and it didn't faze Machida at all. Can't wait for Anderson Silva to challenge him for the title

Been singing Machida's praises for a while, happy to see him get the domminant finish and silence all the naysayers. I will say that it was surprising to see so many people in the bar that i watched the fight in rooting for Lyoto. Can't wait to see his first defense, WAR MACHIDA

Well to be fair most of those people probably were just cheering for the person who was not Rashad. lol. I think just about any fight Rashad is in most people are cheering pretty hard for the other guy whether they know him or not.

all that needs to be said is machida is going to hold that belt for a long time

That sucks! Hope rashad gets back on track! now the question is what type of fighter is going to be able to beat machida? IMO a very agressive fighter, that isnt afraid to get hit. I think rampage would be a good match-up for him.

You mean like Thiago Silva?

Machida will be very hard to beat unless you just tag him at the spur of the moment.

I say the best person of having a chance of beating him,may be someone who has fought him before.
It's hard to train for a guy like Lyoto,and about the only time you'll practice against his style is when your actualy fighting him.


If I had to think of someone right now who could take Machida I would probably say a prime Shogun would have a decent shot.

I love both fighters so i wanted to see a good long fight......o well great job by Machida.

Please for the love of all someone sucussfully defend the LHW TITLE.


Anderson/Lyoto isnt gonna happen, they are best friends/training partners and Lyoto has said many times before he is a MW fighting at LHW because Anderson owns that div.

There is nothing more in the mma world that i wanted to see more than Evans getting destroyed. i despise showboaters like him. so, Rampage...ur next to get blasted.
Told the girl last night the ultimate fight would be Lyota vs Silva. But, like the last guy says....it wont happen because they are friends and they have the same manager.

I also had a certain satisfaction in watching Rashad get outclassed like that but at the end of the day he's still a great athlete.

Machidas just better

I am glad everyone is comeing around and seeing how bad ass Machida really is. It was not long ago if the name Machida came up we would be labeled as boring and/or overated overhyped or some other comment to that lieing!

We've known for a long time Machida was the best, even Anderson says that Machida is the best, It's realy no surprise that he won.

Randy Couture could be an interesting match for Machida, Rampage has more of a chance than Rashad. Rampage can take a hit. He's going to need to sacrifice his body and absorb a high kick so that he can get in a clinch battle. By doing this I see how he can steal a round or maybe get a flash knockout. Otherwise Machida chops him down, Maybe even gets a TKO in the later rounds.

.........WAR RAMPAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But Machida really deserves every1's praise now, I guess its karma that rashad got KO'd. I actually thought rashad would pull out the win, guess not.


....its time for fedor vs machida at catch weight!!!!!!!!!

Randy would be nice, but I have to think even a well like his ( he's 46 isn't he?)has to run dry soon. Plus the last time he went through a divorce his career suffered some. If we could time travel back to the guy who beat Tito and Chuck back to back, I would take Randy any day. I think Hendo is the same style fighter, and the way he looked against Anderson in the first round is the best strategy against Machida as well. The problem fighting Machida/Anderson is you can control them on the ground for 4 rounds , but they only need one flurry to finish anybody. So if Hendo went back up to 205 ,I think he could give Lyoto a run for his money. I also think Rampage has really good defense, so I wouldn't underestimate him. His best bet IMO is to cut off the backpedaling/waiting to counter/cautious Machida, and push against the fence. Then clinch, take down, and GnP. At least that's how I think Randy and Hendo would go about it.
