The question is clear, the similarities are numerous. Considering the epicness of Machida vs. Rashad...I hope it happens. You have a champion, fresh off a win over a fan favorite & he doesn't want any part of the #1 contender. The #1 contender, who just happens to be a Karate master on an unbeaten streak that no one has figured out. I strongly get this vibe & hope the fight happens.
