Machida's style is so far beyond anyone's at LHW IMO.

It'd be a killer matchup, though. Both are small LHW's with great footwork. The ease with which Lyoto not only took Tito down, but avoided his shots leads me to believe we'd see a lot of in and out combinations. To some this means nap. To me it means watching with awe.

I think if these two fought, Machida would definitely win. I think that he'll probably have to wait in line behind Rampage, but if he were to fight Rashad he would avoid his power and takedowns, then outstrike him with combinations.

I would rather see Rampage get the shot first, beat Rashad, then fight Machida. I'm thinking this is the fight we'll get.

I agree with Jackelope as well. Machida fights on another level than most of his competition. He's like a ghost..........

I would actaually want Rashad to win but I just don't see it happening. I feel that Machida is bad for the progression of the sport. His style is too much about scoring points and not about ending the fight. I personally hate that.

Rashad vs Lyoto would be a clash of some of my least favorite fighters. Lyoto bores me to death, and I just can't bring myself to like Rashad at all.

That being said, I think Lyoto would win because he is impossible to tag, and that seems to be Rashad's strong point lately.
As long as Rashad loses the belt quickly then I'll be happy.
(I would really like Rampage to beat Rashad for the title though)

I think by the 3rd or 4th Rashad would grow tired of Machida and try to attack agressively and would go nighty night. WAR MACHIDA!!!!!!!!!!!!!11 he will reign at 205 as soon as he gets his shot.
