    Is it me or was Machida using a little bit of the Stockton Slap taunts Nick and Nate use? He was taunting like them and his hand movements were like them, he just wasn't verbally taunting Bader. I thought it would have been rad if Machida was like "Brazil Mothefucker!" and dropped Bader's shit lol.

    I'm going with Machida. I wouldn't mind seeing him fight Jones again, he was doing pretty well until he got caught.

    We're shit talking Bader now?
    I missed the memo....
    I thought it was widely accepted that Bader had a way better chance than Vera to pull an upset, which is why so many people enjoyed/hated the fights.
    They saw Machida make Bader look crappy, but then had to watch Shogun struggle with Vera.

    Vera was the only one being talked about a little more by UFC, in attempts to dispel people thinking he was just a sacrifice to Shogun (which is what they intended on him being)

    But hands down, the person who deserves a shot at the title next is getting it.


    The only thing I'm worried about is the Jones Hendo fight right now, if Hendo beats Jones that would be amazing.
    But if Hendo fights the Dragon, it has the possibility of being one of the most annoying to watch fights in history....
    Machido would not want to trade with the guy who knocked Bones out, so he would revert to his evasive(backing up a lot) strategy, and Hendo wouldn't want to give him anything to counter.

    Oh damn would that suck......

    How does Shogun gas in all his fights? He picked it up in the Vera fight as the fight went on, and had tons more energy then Henderson in the later rounds

    He was taking a page from Anderson Silva's book, and at one point he dances around like him too...Also, he's trained with Steven Seagall...*sigh*...And it pains me to say it, but...Those hand movements were text book Steven Seagall....If you've ever seen his movies, or at least him sparring.. You'd recognize that Lyoto was doing the Steven hand movements, and then striking afterwards..So it goes to show that he's really trying to up his game.

    That was widely accepted? Wow, I thought Vera was the tougher matchup. Styles make fights. Machida eats wrestleboxers for breakfast. Two MT guys are going to be a tougher match up for each other.


    I don't know. I think it would be exciting. Again, Machida toys with Wrestleboxers. He admitted that he made a mistake with Rampage and he's not going to fight that way again. Plus, Hendo trusts his chin. I think Hendo would put himself in bad situations just to try and land something. I also think Hendo will try, and fail, to take Machida down. If Machida doesn't KO Hendo in a fight, then he would batter his face with counters en route to a decision.

    That being said, I think Jones is gonna win.

    machida for sure. shogun has no gas...it would just be another heavy bag session with jones like it was last time. at least machida can move with jones. i dont think i would even watch a shogun jones 2. that being said, hendo may very well beat jones. which makes for an interesting fight with machida. hendo could catch him or hendo could get countered...its anyones fight on that one. shogun is just disappointing at this stage in his career. they have even talked about a big nog vs shogun TUF. these are terribly boring ideas imo
