I think Machida takes this one without too much trouble, but I wouldnt be upset at all if Bader pulls one out. Does anyone think Bader can take out Machida ??? Cant wait to see it....

I see almost no way for him to win other than a bad decision. Never know, though.

Only way bader wins is if he gets the takedown and stays in top position the whole fight.

I don't see that happening got lyoto UD

It depends on whether the judges consider Machida's counter-striking style to be "effective" striking or not. I say Machida UD.

Bader is one of my favorites but Machida is too well rounded and unorthadox. You never know, though. Bader does have size and strength on him.

Only way I see Bader winning, is by landing a big right hand. Easier said than done, as Machida will be bouncing to and fro the entire fight. Bader probably slows in the second, and Machida picks him apart.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I think Bader wins with a UD. He brought in a karate master to emulate Machida's style (as much as one can) and he states he had a good camp. Bader will have to be able to get the TD in order to win, however. As stated earlier on this topic, it could all depend on how the judges score Machida's striking, effective or not. I think Bader will get the TD's and grind out a boring decision. At almost a 3 to 1 underdog, my money is on Bader.

Bader has a real good chance of winning because:

A. Lyoto isn't a mystery like he use to be.

B. Bader has Heavy Hands, and Lyoto has shown he can be dropped and finished.

C. Age+ Wrasslin in the edge of Bader.

That being said I got Machida Winning.

Everyone states that they had a good camp before the fight, so I don't ever take that as any indication of anything. It's not a bad idea to put a little money on him, but I still don't think he'll win. It is going to be hard for Bader to get his hands on him, I think.

I got lyoto by Dec. I can see machida knocking him out

Bader wins by Dec. This could wind up being a dull fight

Everyone has a chance.

He's going to have to cut down Machida's movement, consistently get Machida to the ground and keep him there. Not gas himself and not just throw power punches.

Bader does like to stand, so idk what his gameplan will be but seeing some of his previous one's I don't see him winning. Wrestling sometimes isn't that great, but he could land a solid punch to change the fight.

i think bader can win this thing. machida hasnt been very impressive lately and bader is coming off a big win over rampage who already beat machida. im not saying that bader will beat lyoto just because rampage did, im just saying its gonna give him confidence.

It's not really about him being a mystery, he's just too fast and accurate for most people, and nearly impossible to take down, even if they know exactly what he's going to do every time.
