That didn't look like no 5 round snoozer to me.... It went down just like we thought it would with Rashad getting his ass handed to him. I will give Rashad props tho he showed alot of class and gave machida his due when Rogan interviewed him after the fight.

Now all you Rashad fans can stfu for a little while, give Machida his due and hope you're boy can mount some kinda comeback in the future. Damn that was a SWEET knock out!

I'm glad everyone seems to have pretty low expectations for this fight. If it's a 5-round snoozer as most seem to expect, no one will feel cheated like we all did with Silva's last two performances. But if it turns out to be epic (sorry...) then it'll just blow everyone away. Like when you go to a movie you think might suck and leave the theater shocked at how awesome it was.

Keep those expectations low, y'all!

Bold you fucking know what i mean. I dont play that faggot ass game WOW either.

What Machida didn't tell the press, is that he actually bathes in his own shit.
VegasBJJ- May 23, 2009 at 9:11 am
I agree with a lot of you...boring main event it is. Both fighters are counter strikers, so they'll just circle the octagon all night waiting for one another to strike. Sherk/Edgar looks good though... and damn, I wish Gusmao and Soszynski was televised. (argh!)

I hate Rashad. So clearly Machida is the man I'm cheering for.... but then I found out that he drinks pee.... now I'm torn.... do I cheer for a douchebag or a pee-drinker????

I really like Evans in this fight but not by much, I would really like to see either one of thier chins tested hard. I dont think it will be a decision either way Evans is way to aggressive and fast and I also think that Machida wants that belt which will make him take more risks to try to end the fight. Its hard to make a choice either way (and I usually have no trouble )but if I had to make a decision that would be fukin awesome I would choose Evans by huge slam KO.

I hope Rashad will finish Machida in dramatic fashion, cause i just hate dose karate guys.
se7ensenses- May 23, 2009 at 12:18 am
All I know is, if Machida wins, stay away from ANY drink he's going to be endorsing. bleh!

Pop Rashad's ego like a balloon.

Nice, Pyle made weight. We're good to go!
NECROPHYTE- May 22, 2009 at 8:57 pm
Mike Pyle? Ain't that the guy who bit Wes Sims or?
NECROPHYTE- May 22, 2009 at 8:54 pm
Looking at the "nipple tweak" along with the sausage tits just happens to us all. I ain't trying to look at em bro, but you have to look at them like you can't help looking at a bad car crash or checking out a fat chick with a semi-pretty face. Goddammit it just happens.

@ Necrophyte

What kind of guy looks at another guys tits? By the looks of the face off Evans is attempting to be unpredictable. I think Evans will knock Machida out in the fourth. There are a lot of "ifs" in this fight. I just hope there is some tension and may be we can figure out if the UFC's current light heavyweight champ is worth top billing.

LOL @ Sausage Tits!

Dmonicideals- May 22, 2009 at 6:57 pm
Machida is about to show the world waht a true P4P fighter is.
T1- May 22, 2009 at 6:53 pm
oh god, what if it comes down to a super controversial split decision between Evans and Machida, after a SUPER boring (but skilled) 5 round snooze fest (but technical).

Do they have a rematch at the next UFC?
831 Son- May 22, 2009 at 6:44 pm
Totally agreed mmmiles. Such noobs these people are that complain that there isnt a KO or some dumb shit. Fucking pussies. The real MMA fans know whats up.
mmmiles- May 22, 2009 at 6:38 pm
I predict a very boring Evans/Machida, maybe even a decision, that I will enjoy thoroughly.

The only thing that will be more fun will be watching all the whiny bitches here complain about it. Their suffering warms my soul.
NECROPHYTE- May 22, 2009 at 6:09 pm
Rashad with his sausage tits and lemon drop nipples.

David Kaplan is still in the UFC, wtf?
