    what say you, doggers? Does Munoz get a shot out of this one if he wins?

    Machidas coach Rafael Cordeiro was saying the other day that he expects a shot for his guy to... maybe the coaches know something we dont?

    Munoz is cool and a good fighter. But frankly, I don't see him beating Machida.

    This is a fight where I want both to win. I think it will end in KO. I'm not to interested in seeing a rematch with Weidman so I'd like to see Machida take this. Either way good luck to both men.

    If Munoz beats Machida, I think he should get a title shot. But I don't think he can beat any of them to be honest.

    Munoz is a decent fighter, but Machida is all wrong for him.

    Machida wins with ease. Similar to the Bader fight.

    Coaches seem to say stuff like this all the time, and it makes sense why. Machida is a peculiar opponent for Munoz's coach to look past though. Looks like a perfect storm of "needs to get a take-down" + "notable for being EXTREMELY hard to take down" to me. I'm a fan of both guys, but this very much looks like bad news for Munoz.

    I wonder who Cordeiro is going to root for? I mean both men are his fighters and both have worked hard in the Gym under him.

    It'll be weird but it looks like he is down with whatever and is going to push whomever the winner is to a title shot.

    If he gets passed Machida, why not? People have come back from one sided beatings to winning the rematch before. Though, his odds probably aren't very favourable.

    Munoz seems like an awesome dude, but I dont think he has shown the tools to beat someone like Machida. If he does, then maybe he does deserve a huge fight

    If he beats Machida he deserves a rematch.

    The way he beat Boetch was a statement. I dont think anyone really thinks he can win this fight against Lyoto.. but if he does, give the man his shot.

    If he keeps Machida from running the around ring and can get a few takedowns. Don't see why he couldn't beat Machida.

    The only way Machida loses this fight if he gets screwed by the judges like in his previous fight.
