I'm glad you have a window to another dimension where you can see that and tell us with such supreme confidence.

I know it was not a title fight but imagine Machida countering Chris Leban's hands down walking straight in style of fighting. It would have been fun to watch.

Machida would have crushed all the guys Andy beat in his title run.

I bet they would have fought best out of three or five each fighter trading wins.

Not really. Different strengths and weaknesses. Machida excels against wrestlers, Silva not so much. Machida beating Weidman doesn't mean Machida>Silva.

Would have loved to have seen them fight.
