    A few years ago, people might not even think this fight is competitive, but what if they fought now?

    Probably a decision win for machida if he doesn't give it away ala rampage. He beat Davis and was robbed.

    However hard I might wish this to be untrue, I think you are spot on.

    You idiot, perhaps you missed the Lyoto Rockhold fight. Also I think there was a good percentage that would have favored Bisping two years ago. Lyoto looked like a conservative chump against Moose.

    I've read a lot of dumb shit on this forum but this may be the dumbest.

    How did Bisping look when he fought Rockhold the first time? Got choked out in the second round just like Machida, except Rockhold only needed one arm for Bisping.

    And conservative chump? He easily schooled Mousasi. Go watch the fight, chump. Machida would kick the shit out of Bisping at any point.

    Laughable. You mean like the beating he put on Phil Davis? Lol Bisping is one of the MW GOATS in a division where Lyoto couldn't hack it.

    Machida would finish him in the first round

    I wouldn't have Bisping in my top 5 MW GOATs.

    Machida typically looks best when he can convince his opponent to chase him, and Bisping would almost certainly not indulge him. Bisping probably takes a tepid decision.

    That's cute, but you are wrong.
    Andy, and maybe Rockhold ,Jacare, and maybe Weidman could be placed above him. Hendo and Wand were LHWs for most of their career. Bisping belongs in any realistic top 5.

    You mean that fight 95 percent of the world thought he won?

    The division he fought for the title im and gave Weidman his toughest fight in?

    Yeah, ignored, fucking idiot.

    I think machida is better at pretty much every aspect of mma than bisping. He is also one of my favorites, so I would favor him personally in this match up.

    Of course rockhold is also better than bisping at almost everything and we all know how that went. This is mma after all.
