Thread: Machida vs. T Silva

  1. #1

    Default Machida vs. T Silva

    Just posted on ufc.com

    One of the knocks against Machida is that he has not beaten a top ranked guy. Usually a way to solve that problem is by facing and beating a top ranked guy. Unfortunately the UFC will not give him a top ranked opponent, so the critics will be able to use the same argument.

    T. Silva is a very good fighter but is still young and a bit unproven himself so this does not do much for Machida when he beats Silva.

    I wish they would have made it Machida vs. Wanderlei that would have been an interesting clash of styles and a win that could justify a Machida title shot.

    He's close to a shot now, why would he want to ruin it by getting destroyed by Wand?

    I think he has fought some good fighters, maybe not Chuck, W. Silva, Forrest Griffin and Rampage, but he has fought some up tier guys.
    Tito has wins over W. Silva, Belfort, etc.
    Thierry has wins over Arona and Nogueira
    I think he should be in line for a title fight soon, maybe one more fight with Rashad Evens, Chuck, W. Silva.
    If he beats one of these guys then he should have a title fight.
    It is not always the fighters fault that they have not faced the best competition.
    I have however lost alot excitement over him after the Tito fight, just a boring-just doing enough to win.

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...oh, sorry, just watching the last Machida fight.

    He is very tough and skilled, though, and I'm sure he's very frustrating to fight.
    I heart Jazzy B. White.

    How did he ever escape that Tito triangle? I leaped out of my chair, wild turkey spilled everywhere, and I cheared in anticipation of an Ortiz, come from behind win, but it just was not to be. Woulda Coulda Shoulda.

    PJ, when Machida gets Wand, put me down for an Andrew Jackson.
