Log in to Reply WTFson December 7, 2011 There can only be one victor and he is the karate kid machida as he will KO jon jones who caught my ye early in his career but even with the long range i still believe machida wins by a kick. Log in to Reply cms December 7, 2011 lol… is that high enough? Log in to Reply JoeDog December 7, 2011 …Jones grabs the leg, down goes Machida and is promptly pounded into oblivion. Who’s next? Log in to Reply Bas Ruten December 7, 2011 Bruno, who is your pick for Machida vs Jones? My prediction of Bruno’s prediction: pulling for Machida but Jones wins. But the thing to consider the is the potential for Rashad Evans to jump in the ring with a steel chair, hit Jones, thereby stunning him, and then pile drive him while Machida distracts Herb Dean. Bruno: You called it. Log in to Reply MMA = Boxing December 7, 2011 Lyoto the dragon Machida is my all time best UFC fighter. He takes his job very seriously. I personally think that after loosing to Shogun Rua he became a better fighter , then after loosing by decision to rampage he learn to not be so technical and try to score more but instead leave it all in the cage and win the fight before time is up. Then my second favorite would probably be Jon Jones because he is a great man and fighter, and because he’s one of the few who can actually beat the spider silva. Gl to both, I’d hate to see them loose, it will be sad when it’s over.

Log in to Reply cigronne December 8, 2011 Someone is gonna get beat up this Saturday.. and Dana talking Bisping vs Miller was a one-sided fight… hilarious Log in to Reply mysryluvscmpany December 8, 2011 im not big on either of these guys but im not swinging off jones’s nuts till I see how he does in a fight that doesnt go perfect for him. I hope lyoto can pull it out or at least test him so we all can see how he reacts. Log in to Reply Rio_Warrior December 8, 2011 Lyoto is the toughest oponnent JJ can get on the LHW… if Lyoto fight smart and aggressive he may connect good hits and we will see how JJ behaves when he gets striked. Besides that i think JJ belongs in the HW division, actually JJ should move HW and AS should move to LHW if he is looking for better challengers. Log in to Reply fightdontbefake December 8, 2011 I think it’s great many people are riding off lyoto, might make some rich SOB on Sat. Night. Who destroyed Rashad Evens? Who use to train with Jon Jones?…Rashad Evens…who wasn’t taken down and smashed by anyone (Tito, Silva, Evens, Randy)?…Machida. His only 2 losses were from standup, so if you are going to say that he will get smashed by Jones at least say it will on the feet. Log in to Reply Bernardo December 8, 2011 The only front kick I’m worried about is JBJ’s. You know he has TKD skills and with his long legs and height combined with his speed, power, and precision he can front kick the hell out of anyone. I believe the winner will be the one who gets his opponent to make a mistake in the standup game. I see Jones height, reach, speed, and unorthodox style making him difficult to touch and his wrestling and BJJ impossible to take down or submit. On the other hand I see Jones picking Machida apart before he finally goes in for the TKO or submission. Log in to Reply greengiant December 8, 2011 machida can do it.it will be good. Log in to Reply Anon December 8, 2011 The crane kick is great but he better learn the paint the fence and wax the car to keep bones from knocking him out! Log in to Reply morbidcro December 8, 2011 I want Machida to win but I don’t see it happening. I’m predicting Jones to win rounds 1-3 (maybe 4) and Lyota winning the last 1 or 2. Hopefully he learned something against Rampage and will act faster. Log in to Reply jdogg December 8, 2011 3rd degree TKD black belt here and I didn’t see a crane kick… Log in to Reply Yoda123 December 9, 2011 Jones head is at least 6-5 high and 10 feet back. Machida can Crane Kick AIR if he tries his gonna get KTFO Log in to Reply rtorres7794 December 9, 2011 nuthuggers, nothing is a solid until after the fight is done. Yoda, Jon Jones doesn’t stand up straight at attention in a fight.
