SPOILERS BELOW:

















Machida isn't likely to lose for a long time. The UFC should have an easy time hyping him - the dude is undefeated and almost never gets hit. How couldn't you market that?

Other MMA news:

- Mirko Cro Cop is back in the UFC and fighting on June 13th @ UFC 99

- June 6th there is a STACKED Strikeforce card on showtime for free (if you have the channel) with Arlovski fighting Brett Rogers, Lawler vs Shields, Diaz vs Scott Smith etc.

- June 7th is the Urijah Faber / Mike Brown rematch on the channel "versus".

- June 13th is UFC 99 - Wanderlei Silva vs Rich Franklin, Cain Velasquez vs Kongo, Cro cop, etc.

- July 11th - UFC 100 is probably the most stacked MMA card in the sport's history.

- August 1st is Affliction's third card. Fedor and Barnett have apparently agreed to fight eachother. Other awesome matchups will be on as well. Mousasi vs Belfort we hear, and Syliva vs Buentello.

- UFC 101 = BJ Penn vs Kenny Florian, but more importantly, Anderson Silva vs Forrest Griffin at 205.

Oh and DREAM 9 is in just a day or two I think... May 26th maybe.

Hughes.

I actually watched that shit?

In other news, the McFedries and Foupa-Pokam fight was amusing, at best.

Forgive me, I don't normally watch things like this (or TV in general), and this was on at a party last night. May as well watch it, you know?

Hughes. I had Serra winning. He got dominated rd. 2, but the knockdown + strikes > back mount that amounted to nothin in rd. 1 and the takedown with strikes from the top and standing > takedown with no effective offense in rd. 3. Matt Hughes' lay and pray FTL.

Machida is so swift. I think he won't get beat until some strong wrestler gets him down and keeps him there. Standing and trading with him just doesn't seem like a great gameplan.

With that said, I believed (and still do) that Rampage will own the belt again by the end of the year.

Damn - I would've been picking 'page against Evans, but not Machida.

I want to see Shogun/Rampage 2

Right now i want them to give Shogun someone like Luiz Cane to make sure he's "back". Cane has been looking good.

There is nobody in UFC's 205 division that poses a threat right now. Rampage already turned a fight with Machida down and so did Forest Griffin . Anderson Silva at 205 maybe but after his last performance i doubt it.

FEDOR VS MACHIDA at 225= Epicness

Shogun is the biggest threat IMO.

Page will be hard to knock down, but not as hard to outpoint. (for Machida)

He had just had two knee surgeries.

But yeah - he was absolutely embarrassing in that fight. My friends and I were literally in tears laughing. Worst fight I've ever seen in my life. If Shogun hadn't knocked him out at the end like that, Coleman may have taken the decision. Pathetic.

There aren't many better wrestlers at 205 than Ortiz and he couldn't hold Machida down. I think that Shogun or Rampage could get a really lucky flash KO, but 9 times out of 10 they lose. It sucks cuz I fucking hate Machida, but he is going to be champ for a long ass time.

yeah Machida looks unbeatable at the moment. I didn't expect the knockout to be honest, but man... crazy. Evans hardly landed a shot. Amazing stuff.

Shogun in GP form would smash Machida, imo. He looked unstoppable throughout that tournament. If he can get back to that shape, he's the best LHW in the world. We'll see how he looks in future bouts.

I think Rampage would have taken the belt from Evans, but I think it will be more difficult against Machida. Machida's style is perfect against Rampage's power style. I am kind of split.

So who is watching the fights on saturday?

I've been an Anderson hater for a while now, but am picking him to win by brutality. Just can't root for a super douche like chael.

lol, weird bump, you just could've started a new thread.

anyway, I like em both, for different reasons obviously, so I'm not really rooting for anybody, but I'm stoked like I haven't been in for a while.
This could play out in so many ways, I have really no idea what to expect. Also, the aftermath of either outcome should be pretty interesting. I think I'm gonna rewatch their first fight tomorrow.

and I'd like to see Rashad move down, if Silva wins.
