    Johnson probably knocks him the fuck out or wins a decision.

    Hot damn, I love them both. It would've been interesting to see this fight with both of them in their primes. I'll be honest though, I don't think anyone beats Johnson on the feet today.

    I hear ya. I think Rumble would find Machida's chin at some point though. It only takes one with that guy.

    I think machida easily out strikes him to a decision win, or maybe even gets the finish after rumble gases out.

    Rumble would KO him.

    I like Machida but the fact is he was champ in a weak LHW era...

    Rumble by KO. Whenever something lands on Machidas chin, he sees stars or blacks out.

    Gotta go with Johnson. The guy is amazing at any weight over 200lbs. His chin isn't too bad so I really don't see how Machida can beat him.

    Machida scampers away and catches a frustrated Rumble in the 2nd or 3rd. tko.

    Machida fan boys will deny this but its absolutely true if he had an iron chin his career would have been vastly different

    If Machida actually used his trips he could sub a tired Rumble later on.

    Rumble kod a couple of guys, including a headbutt,and now he hits so hard. How long do those power shots last, 3-4 min, then if he hasn't won,it's usually downhill.Look at vitor,fastest hands in mma, but in his last fight,he gave everything, and failed,then basically gives up.I like Rumble,but I see him the same way.DC just outworked him,same as Randy outworking Vitor

    Rumble would either catch Machida or win a decision via pushing the pace. He would have a size and strength advantage as well
