Think about something. Let's use our brains here. I am a huge fan of both guys. Both are cool. And both are A level fighters. But let's think about something. Manny really won the lightweight compitition. Mac is a lightwieght but won the welterweight compitition. Do you think Manny would have been able to do that. I dont think so. Mac is craftier, has more expierience, has fought better guys, and I think after fighting a bunch of welterweights, he will have an easier time at lighweight. Manny is very good, but Mac is a guy that can be top 10, in there with the best lightweights in the world.
good point but, in manny's defense tuf 5 was loaded with talent whereas tuf 6 was not, imo tuf 6 had the least talent of any season, it was very tough to come out of tuf 5, manny beat noah (easy), but he also beat matt wiman and joe lauzon which is a huge feat. mac beat kolosci twice (a really tough guy but not a ufc calibure fighter), scarola (i dont even have to say anything about him), and speer who is very raw still, much less polished than manny. now i think mac would win the fight because he is more well rounded but manny can most definately beat mac and i wouldnt be at all suprised if he did.
