Would Tim Kennedy fared better against Machida?

    Yeah. Probably waits until the second to get knocked out.

    He will try to grab Machida's glove and then land more than 0 punches, but will still lose by TKO.

    It'd probably have been like Rockhold-Kennedy, where Kennedy refused to mix things up and just went for the takedown unsuccessfully the whole fight. He's so boring that a matchup with the evasive Machida probably had snoozer written all over it.

    That would be tough to top considering Romero had Kennedy beat and looking like a slab of meat

    Define better.

    If he get's KO'd in the 3rd is that necessarily better?

    Kennedy literally had to cheat and grab Romero's glove to mount any significant offense.

    Yes. Maybe a 2nd or 3rd round TKO loss.

    If he gets to the 2nd round & knows he's out of his depth he could play it safe & lose a decision.

    I think he would have done better no question.....he wouldn't have given Machida the space to work like that.

    I'm sure he would probably last longer. I don't think he would beat Machida or anything.

    Wow, I am in my own sinking boat on this one. I think Kennedy would be able to pull it off.

    Yeah. I don't think Machida finishes him.

    Why do Sherdoggers think that Machida can finish anyone because he finished 2 fringe top 10 guys? hahaha
