    Rockhold gets the decision imo, think he frustrates Machida with his surprisingly long range (cough cough)

    Great fight (Machida by ko) and most of us figured it was imminent.

    I like that he wants the fight early as possible, but February isn't realistically possible. They aren't going to put it on an already stacked PPV. And it's not going to be co-main or main on a fight night with Teixeira/Evans.

    A realistic target would be as the co-main at UFC 185 in Dallas on March 14th. Otherwise as the main for either fight night surrounding that event, depending on where they are located. The one announced is in Brasil, so that could work.

    Just hope they make it so we can see Rockhold crying for another 12 months, he seems to be talking a lot about this fight despite being offered it in Brazil

    Rockhold would beat Machida. I also hope he fights juiceless Vitor so he can avenge that loss.

    Why not Feb? Machida didn't even sweat in his last fight, he's ready to fight again IMO. Rockhold is also good to go. They could fit in the Colorado card perhaps..

    I explained it to you. It doesn't fit the schedule. Lombard-Brown or something like that will be the main on Feb. 14.

    And Machida might not want that quick of a turnaround. He just fought and isn't likes to fight guy per se like a Lombard or Cerrone.

    What's wrong with March? That's a whole 2+ months from now. Give a little time for build-up and put it in its proper place on a card, and that is a co-main on a ppv or main for a Fox, FN, etc.
