Apparently both sides have signed the contracts, though nothing has been announced officially.
Who you guys picking?
Unfortunately I have to go with Machida. If Rampage were to come out Pride-style, punching, kicking, AND slamming he would be the favorite. But this plodding puncher eating leg-kicks and take-downs while hoping only to land one big punch version of Rampage is not the kind of fighter to beat Machida.
That pussy will be going 120mph in reverse like he always does, throwing approximately one punch per minute in the process. But because his pussy ass landed 2 punches to the 0 that Rampage will land, Machida will end up taking a decision.
As I've said since day one, to beat Machida you've got to exploit that gay-ass Karate stance of his. Front kicks are NECESSARY. Take him out of his comfort zone, make him adjust. Rampage once had the tools to do that. Does he still? I hope so, but I don't think so.
Machida UD. (And I hope I'm wrong.)
