Discussion in 'OT Bar' started by THE LIOG, Jan 26, 2009.
i'm thinking Lyoto because he always looks so smooth in his fights but Thiago's power scares me
lyoto by evasiveness
or counter attack as king mo said
I really want to be excited for this fight, but the name Machida really kills it for me
We'll see though, I think Thiago will pressure him and hopefully some fireworks will fly.
Thiago 2nd round TKO
Machida 30-27 UD
that's what i figure
2 week Av bet?
Machida by first round ko/tko is Silva just rushes out there into him.
Machida by 2nd round tko from mount
I think that people who don't like machida just watch mma because they want to see violence, they dont care about craft and strategy. They just want to see some blood or a crazy kung-fu movie one punch KO....
LOL @ everyone who calls him evasive
Machida by TKO stoppage in the third.
Silva is gonna run straight in, eat a huge shot, get dropped, then Machida's gonna make it rain.
We should bet on the over/under on how many times the word 'ellusive' is used during the fight. I'll say over 10
lol thats going a bit far man. I don't like watching Machida fight because I find him boring, nothing more. I get why people like him, but it's not my style.
Doesn't mean I can't appreciate a good ground war, etc. but when guys are standing I like action. I know his methods are effective, but in my eyes he is only concerned with walking away with a W and not how the fight is seen. Which is totally ok, but not my kind of fighter.
lyoto will take this hands down
i rewatched the tito/machida fight. Smart fighter is all, he just goes HARD when he sees an opportunity. At the end of round one he has a HUGE bodylock takedown and tito was saved by the bell.
Thiago Sucks I dont see what the allure to him is. He telegraphs and punches slow as hell. He will have a field day with thiago.
Thiago's GnP is sloppy and he looked gassed after the Mendes fight.
Let's hope Machida's ground game is up to snuff if it goes there.
going for machida...but i think it will go the distance
Where's the evidence for Silva being able to win period?
I do see Machida eventually losing to someone(not my final opinion), but it certainly won't be coming from Thiago.
I could use a gay new av and an excuse as to why I have it
If it finishes before the end of the three rounds it will be Thiago
If it goes to decision it will be Lyoto
yep, and there's going to be a lot of that in this next fight too
