Who you got ?

I think Machida will pull the upset on this one and i got my money on him and Uriah. I could see Machida maybe losing the first round after getting taken down after that i dont think he will be able to take down Machida any more. After Machida figures him out.
Standing up i think Machida has a clear edge. Weidman has dynamite hands but Machida is just to fast and technical. I belive this fight will end something similair to the Munoz fight.

I think Machida is gonna catch Weidman whit something when he is coming in and then swarm on him like crazy. Also if this fight would go to the championship rounds then i belive Machida will have a conditioning advantage. I think weidman is gonna exhauste himself whit takedown attempts and waist to much energy.

I got Machida by TKO in the second round. If it goes to a dec i still think Machida "should" win since i think he will win the most rounds pretty clear. But you never know whit the judges ofcourse and especially since Weidman is the champ.

Machida should win hands down if Weidmans double legs against silva are all he has to work with. Then again Machida clearly beat Rampage and Mr Wonderful too according to fightmetric so who knows.

Styles make fights and you can't ask for a better one than this. I think this could go either way but it's just too hard to pick against the undefeated fighter here. He's been improving in everyfight so far since being in the UFC.

The Maia fight wasn't the greatest but he took that on very, very short notice.

I think he had a dry mouth.





And his Throat is probably burnt out from ki ya-ing in karate class.

I don't consider his first win against Silva a fluke...I consider it a knock out. The second win is kinda shitty...however I am done picking against Weidman until he shows us that he can be beat. To be honest, I think he was beating Silva before the accident.

Taking Weidman here. Lyoto is similar to Silva in that he likes to counter punch. Although they use different styles to set it up, I think Weidman will have no problem timing his takedowns and setting up his own combinations. Lyoto doesn't like to be pressed, I see Weidman putting him in just the right amount of pressure to make him uncomfortable

People see it either one way or the other and that's completely fine. Weidman himself even said before the fight that he ' wants a legitimate win '

From the very beginning, Chris Weidman vs. Lyoto Machida was a legacy-making fight. Weidman had the chance to cement himself, beyond any doubt, as the greatest middleweight in MMA. Machida, meanwhile, had the opportunity to establish himself as the UFC's third two-division champion, behind only MMA legends BJ Penn and Randy Couture, and stake a claim as one of MMA's all-time greats.
