this is an even fight all the way thru..machida does not have more ways to win..Mousasi judoka sweeps and trips cancel out Machidas trips and tds..Machida s key to victory is style of defense and he 'll be on his bike from the always forwarding Mousasi and taking advantage of the sometimes slow of foot Mousasi and outpointing him.This could very well happen but it's the only way I see LyOTo winning. Mousasi could win Dec., ko or surprising submission...
Don't get me wrong, Machida deserves to come in as betting favorite for various reasons especially saucy coming off 2 acl tears and has the balls to call out studs like Vitor and Machida....like I've said many times, Gegard Mousasi is 100% pure gladiator/ cage fighter.
I'm hoping its his time.
