    I dont think so on both counts. But I am voting with my heart.

    You got a Machida whos chin is exposed, so it could be a dull fight. And BJ won once already, almost won the 2nd time but gassed due to injury.

    I wouldn't say Machida's chin is exposed. In MMA, anyone can be KO'd and Shogun is far from pillow-fisted. I say Machida wins because Rampage has become so flat-footed and focused on a one-punch, highlight KO instead of being more dynamic like he was in PRIDE. His stand-up is much more technical, but he hasn't been able to fully integrate that into his style. Quick fighters (Shogun, Rashad, Wand, etc.) have also given Rampage trouble and this is one of Machida's strengths.

    I say a 3rd round TKO started by a liver kick for Machida.

    Machida is fucking gay and he's finally being exposed for being overrated. He should have lost to shogun the first time but the judges f'd shogun. Make that 2 L's in a row for the LOSER


    Btw this should prob be moved to the sports thread

    Yeah, you were really right about Machida's chin being exposed...

    In all honesty, this is one of the premier examples of why I've been saying there is a huge need for a half point round. The first and second rounds would have been 10-9.5 with the third being a 10-9. I knew that Machida was in trouble as soon as Jeff Blatnick was a judge because his MMA concepts are vastly outdated (FYI, Blatnick was a commentator in many of the early, pre-Zuffa UFC events).

    Saying Machida is overrated is absurd because he lost to two of the top-five LHW in MMA and is, albeit with a lot of controversy, 2-2 against current top-ten LHW. Rampage actually has the worst record at 1-3 (losses to Shogun, Rashad, and Forrest with a win over Machida).

    Machida IS overrated. Rampage just slightly won against him only because people are now familiar with Machida's "elusive"....no fuck that, his running away tactic and are no longer rewarding it.

    Why do I say this? Cuz he has so many "decision" wins. In other words, he wins point-match fights, i.e., a karate tournament ala Karate Kid! Hes only recently started kicking it up a notch and when he got that bogus win over Shogun, he tried to finish it the 2nd time and got KOd.

    Rampage, as dumb as his training camp is, KNEW Machida would pull this shit and dealt with it with just plain aggression. Now, youre gonna see every fighter fight Machida with the same pressure and some will get a KO while some may get KOd, but in the end, Machida will be deemed an average fighter (above average at best) and crystallize the "overrated" status.

    Yeah, it was a bit dull. Rampage was scared of Machida it seemed which is why there wasnt much action. But! Rampage is a counter striker, so without Machida taking action, Rampage had to stick to a game plan of 'waiting.'

    Machida got aggressive in the 3rd with that flurry, but after watching the fight twice (and plenty of replays of that flurry on MMA Live on ESPN), I didnt see much get through. Rampage fired back, but with Machida closing the distance for a weak takedown, Rampages strikes went no where as well.

    I got so giddy when Rampage set up that slam!

    Decisions equals overrated? I guess Edgar and Maynard are also overrated.

    Funny how you say Machida is overrated yet Rampage barely eeked out a split decision win. Doesn't that mean that Rampage is also overrated?
