    Evans vs Machida now since Rampage is out


    What do you guys think.
    Rampage is now out due to an injured jaw that needs surgery.

    Rampage will be back. Not sure what the recovery time will be on that kind of surgery though. Too bad he'll be fighting Machida for the belt, cuz I wanted to see, as he calls it, some black on black crime! I liked Rampage after TUF but after that trash talking I'm now a H U G E Jackson fan!

    Has this fight been officially announced? I'm just not sold on Machida. Who else is there though?

    I'd lovvvvvvve to see Sugar get knocked out. But more important I just want a win for machida. On the other hand I too wanted Ram/Evans and that would be put off for a while if Evans loses. Hard to call in that sense too.

    Though I am interested in a Rashad/Lyoto, my interest in a Rashad/Page was much, MUCH higher .

    It's still a good marketing angle for the UFC (2 undefeated fighters have never fought for a title) and I also think that Machida has adapted his style slightly more recently to be more aggressive. Neither fighter has ever really been hit hard, so it's hard to gauge their chins.

    IMO one more win for Machida over a scrub would make him more appealing.

    Honestly, i think the reason i want to see jackson evans more, is because i really think machida is going to beat evans, and possibly jackson after that. then i wont care as much about jackson v evans, because they will have both just been beat. Does that make sense? I am being a wicked machida whore recently.

    Record means ****. That argument is irrelevant. Yes, he beat Silva and in a convincing fashion. I can give a **** about everyone else he has beat and the Tito fight was total BS. Who has Silva beat himself?

    I'm not sold based on his prior opponents.

    I agree with you as well, only I don't like Machida. Nonetheless, same conclusion.

    i know he isnt the flashiest, but he seems to be working on it. he is like the 205lb kenny florian, except undefeated, but same type of mentality imo.

    Machida is a matchup problem for everyone at 205, and IMO should 70% of the time beat Evans. However, Evans is tremendously athletic, and should make this a very tough matchup for Machida. All I know is I am anxious to see it.

    Whether you like his style or not, you have to respect his talent (as frustrating as it may be). I don't hate the guy, I used to, but his latest fight really impressed me. He had a good mix of defensive and offensive, so at the very least, I respect his talent and I respect how difficult of an opponent he is to anyone he fights.

    I like Evans more, but I'm leaning heavier on a Machida Victory and my opinion would remain the same if it were Machida/Rampage and Rampage is my boy. For either Rampage or Evans, you could theoretically put together a strategy to win. Machida just seems much more difficult to train for and I don't see Machida making fatal errors because he's SOOOO careful and SOOO evasive minded.

    I agree completely. Im not walking around wearing a machida t-shirt, but i respect the hell out of the guy. I dont even really want to see him get beat like i usually do with fighters like him. I like him i think.

    Agreed, I could see a frustrated Evans making a fatal error before machida does. He just seems to pick his opportunities better, and stays within his plan. If that means being defensive for 5 rounds so be it.
