I think Shogun makes it to the second round, like Rashad, but also Rashad gets finished in said round.

Machida will NOT stop Shogun with standing strikes or even ground strikes for that matter, if he stops him its by sub via possible gassing, that much I can guarentee.

I favor Machida 60/40, but by decision and he hasnt fought anyone as good as Shogun. Rashad would most likely get KO'd by Shogun just like Rampage did only way worse because even though theyre not that similar, the chin difference between Rashad and Rampage is very noticeable. Its freakin crazy to see ppl think Rashad, Tito and Thiago Silva had better shots at Machida than the other best LHW there is besides Machida in Shogun. They're probably still questioning his cardio and the health of his knees, aka "hes sucked since he couldnt roid" or just general disregard of how serious reconstructing both your knees are.

If you dont see Shogun showing up at 100% you're sadly mistaken, this fight will be amazing.

I picked round two but it really depends how agressive Shogun is.

To me, if he is aggressive, he will lose by the second from a KO. If he isn't aggressive, he loses a decision.

Decision. La Cheetah will be too elusive and frustrate Rua a la Anderson Silva for 5 rounds.

How long will it last? I'd say about as long as it takes Machida to score the (T)KO.

Not trying to be an A-hole but i would be curious to see how you can guarantee that Machida will not KO or TKO Shogun. My guess is that Machida will stop Shogun on the feet.

Care to make a wager on that.

Though I personally wouldn't go so far as to "guarantee" anything, I'd say history shows that Shogun won't get KO'd or TKO'd. If past performances are any indication (he's never been KO'd or TKO'd).

First ko's happen, just cuz noone's done it yet doesn't mean Machida can't.

Machida by KO rd 3 is my guess. If the prime Shogun shows up that is. If he doesn't show up in top shape he won't last that long. Shogun is one of my all time fav's and his run in the GP was incredible, he was absolutely the best at 205 at that time, but the sport is always progressing. Machida now is better than Shogun was then.
