Can't wait for Machida to get the belt. I've been following this guy for years, and he's finally getting the attention he deserves. Saw her live at the Forum WFA event back in 06, and he's just nuts with how elusive and crafty he is. Rashad is a favorite of mine too, and the only fighter from season 2 I actually liked when the show was on. Rashad has the speed and power advantage, but Machida really is just too damn good.

Really don't care for either of these 2 guys. Aside from the Silva fight, Machida is to boring, to hit & run. And Evens, i just don't like the guy. Someone else should hold that belt.

Machida may be boring, but he really is the ultimate counter fighter. He just seems like he's on a different level then his competition, almost like he's toying with people out there. Which is pretty much the reason I like him, even if his fights are boring at times. For flash and excitement, I like me some Aoki.
"I saw a lady on T.V. She was born without arms. Literally, she was born with her hands attached to her shoulders... and that was sad, but then they said, "Lola does not know the meaning of the word 'can't.'" And that to me was kinda worse... in a way... ya know? Not only does she not have arms, but she doesn't understand simple contractions. It's very simple Lola, you just take two words, you put them together, then you take out the middle letters, you put a comma in there and you raise it up!" -Mitch Hedberg

Not to take anything away from Lyoto cause the guys style is effective, especially when you don't see it coming, a la Thiago Silva, but i like the KO's. My guys are Anderson Silva & Andre Arlovski. Yes, still..... But as long as its entertaining, im good.

I think Lyoto is a exciting fighter in his own unique way. I love watching him fight.

He reminds me of Ryu with is karate background. He should wear a sleeveless gi and tie a red hachimaki around his forehead.

I think Machida is unbeatable. There's just no one out there in MMA that can figure him out. He's too skilled. He hasn't even lost a round since he entered the UFC. Love his evasive tactics and and his attacks are accurate as hell. If you didn't watch the UFC 98 Countdown, his mentality is that of a samurai, bushido. He so evasive because fighting with swords, one hit will kill you. He's just applying that to MMA. Awesome performance. Much respect to Evans, but Machida is just too good.

[expletive] yes! He'll now hold the belt for awhile I suspect. I don't see Jackson beating him, but we'll see. If Anderson Silva can get back into old form (unlike his last fight), he's the only one I see with any kind of shot at beating Machida.

Don't know who can beat him and it seems like Machida & Anderson wouldn't fight each other. Would really like to see them get it on once Anderson beats Forrest & Machida defeats Jackson.

Doesn't look like jackson is gonna fight machida... he wants evans...

Jackson declined a shot at the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s light heavyweight title, currently held by Lyoto Machida, in order to coach against Evans on Season 10 and have the opportunity to fight him in December.

“When I found out who I would be coaching against, I couldn’t turn it down. You know, Rashad left a bad taste in my mouth. He got up in my face (following the UFC 96 fight) with his bad-[expletive] breath. I’m from Memphis. We don’t like that (stuff).”
