I guess I should just be taking care of business already but something is holding me back.  

Machida is very difficult to deal with when he chooses to always move away and wait for his opponent to come forward and then he just strikes quickly at the moment of his choice and then moves swiftly away again from the area where he counters (unless his opponent is hurt). 

I think Chris is in trouble here and if Machida can hit and run (and run and run and run and run & hit..............) without the passivity rule being called against him,  I'm guessing it's Machida's fight to lose. Machida is VERY tough to take down or to get a hold of even.

Fights came down to close decisions in Machida VS Page and Hendo, but IMO he has a clear edge in such a fight VS Weidman and I think it's the fight he intends to fight.

I think I'm gonna lay down some money on Machida early because I see those lines shifting much closer come fight time.

Weidman fighting page and Hendo would not be a close decision.
That being said weidman vs machida is a very good fight but I still believe weidman has a slight edge. Phone Post 3.0

I don't gamble but if I did Machida @ +180 would be a bet I'd make.

I'd bet Machida at +180. That's some good odds right there.

Haven't seen nearly enough of Weidman to think he is some kind of unbeatable beast like some people make him out to be.

Good bet on machida IMO

Anything +120 and above for Machida is a good bet.

I've seen enough footy of machida to see that he can be knocked the fuck out and chocked the fuck out. Two things Weidman is very good at doing to people.

This will definitely show what kind of fighter Chris is, If he rolls through Machida, he will hold title for a long time.

We haven't seen much of Weidman so far so this fight will be very telling as Machida is a tough fight for anyone.

Smart money is on Weidman. Anderson would have dismantled Lyoto, both times.

If you want to lose money it is, I think Chris wins this one rather easily.

ANYONE can be finished including Weidman who hasn't faced to many high caliber fighter's in his young career.

BW92 - Sorry guys, Chris is gonna win.... if the distance gives him trouble hell beat Machida up in the clinch. As impressive as Lyoto is he's proven himself to be equally beatable if he isn't able to get off Phone Post 3.0
