So says, of course, Michael Bisping. And he thinks current Wolfslair training partner Quinton Jackson is the man who will beat Lyoto Machida first. Bisping also mentions that he actually asked UFC for a Machida fight a couple years ago, but wound up getting Elvis Sinosic instead.

Bisping is dam lucky Machida was not able to fight him. if he fought Machida instead of Elvis he would not be half as famous as he is and he would be making a lot less money.

Ain't that the truth

Rampage beating Machida=False

I don't see Rampage beating Machida, I love Rampage, but he would be to slow for Machida, and Machida would do the same as he did to Rashad just dodge Rampages shots and catch Rampage.

Of course Jackson could beat Machida. It would be ridiculous to count him out of any fight.

Is it likely? No. Does Rampage have a chance? Better than a lot of others.

He can beat him at the Chuck Lidell impression... and dancing... and of course he probably does the Rampage howl better... but in a fight? Naw, its Machida all the way

Machida/Jackson will end much like Evans/Machida.

Shogun will probably be Machida's toughest test at 205.

...until someone DOES beat him and then every one swings to the next nut vine to hang from someone else sack.

Everyone in MMA is beatable, folks. At some point in time, everyone is going to lose.

except Fedor

In all honesty Rampage probaly has the mst powerful hands in that division with Manhoef closing in on a close second. If he can connect with punches then he can win.However that is a big IF!

I think the word in parentheses should be "Could". Which is true he "could" win but he's going to be the underdog for a reason.
Every time Bisping opens his mouth honestly i just turn my ears off because I could careless what he has to say.

I like Shoguns odds. Honestly I dont think Rampage will beat Rashad much less Machida. Rampage's style plays right into Machida's stregths. I do think he may last longer than Rashad did though.

I agree with Rashad that Forrest would be a tough match up for Machida as well.

Well I feel Rashad had a better chance of beating Machida than Rampage does and we see how that went. I see this fight being around 80/20 in Machida's favor. Rampage lacks the speed, footwork, and not checking leg kicks to beat Machida and his style plays right in to Machida's hands not as bad as Shogun's style does but still does. I giving Shogun even less of a chance than Rampage and feel the Shogun fight is around 90/10. I feel the Shogun fight will go down a lot like the Thiago fight did.
