Thiago silva would be a much better fight for him (i think he would beat thiago)

Machida i think would be a bad match up for him though.

I just don't see the Thiago Silva fight happening. Wandy is Thiago's idol. It would be a sick fight though, a lot harder to predict then a lot of you think. Thiago has the better ground game but Wandy would win on the feet but it'd be a sick brawl. I'd love to see this fight as it has Fight Of the Year written all over it, but I'm just not sure if Thiago will sign it. I just would like to see this fight next year, let Thiago keep facing better competition each time out. Don't throw him directly into the fire. Give him Rejlic or Rashad. Not freakin Wandy...yet.

Wandy has the best style to beat Machida, that non-stop aggression with a good chin and improving cardio. I hope that fight happens, because I want Wandy/Chuck 2 and Wandy/Rampage 3 to happen SO BAD! Don't stop Thiago's rise, let him continue to improve since he's still young.

I'll be more interested in Machida, dont want to see Thiago losing yet, give him Rashad as it was supposed to be.

I dont want to see Silva vs Silva because i like both guys and want them to keep moving up the ladder so they eventually fight later but i dont want one of them to fall down.

Wandy vs Machida would be good, I think machida would get beat, wandy would just put tons of pressure on him and break machida. IMO

But wandy vs Thiago would be a good matchup down the line, because both guys good in the clinch, then give it to thiago on the ground and wandy on the feet even though thiago has power and improving striking.



EDIT: If wandy wants the fastest way to the title or rematch with chuck and 3rd match up with rampage(both fights i want to see)
He needs to set up that fight with machida because machida is closer to the top than thiago.

Yes Machida would win. He would completely neutralize his style. I would like to see Silva vs Silva personally. It would be good for Thiago to lose to a legend. It would make him a better champion... when he becomes champion.

I think he would lose to both.

Thiago would outstrike him or if that fails take him down and submit/ GnP him

The only person that can beat machida is Rampage, so Wandy would lose this also imo.....

They would both be great to watch
Machida would beat rampage but they will not give him a shot cuz he cant fill the arena on his own.
