Tito certainly has the skill and athleticism to takedown and G-N-P Machida. And don't start blathering about judoka and takedowns, soku is a novice to mma.

A hearty LOL at all the people who think Sherk is going to out-wrestle Penn.

Machida all the way. Hopefully, maybe after defeating every single human being in his division, the UFC will consider giving him a title shot.

I love machida.
THe only thing that would make him more bad ass is if he spoke english
(or knocked someone out, says mcclaw...but that sounds like we're together, in some sort of homosexual manner, but we're talking on aim, and i just ALL CAPSed my previous message to him, to which he replied "or knocked someone out :p)
note: I am not a homosexual. (ala heath herring)

Since now the title mistake is fixed I can say something constructive.
No doubt I think Lyoto Machida will win but I hope he puts on a good show like he did with sokodju or however you spell his name. If he wants to be a main-eventer he's definately gotta switch on the aggression in his style of fighting. I don't think many people would wanna pay 30 bux or more to watch a man stepping in throw combos and step out for 15 mins and then grind out a decision win.
Tito has already lost the fight in my opinion. In an interview he refered to his opponent as "something machida, i forgot his first name" and seemed to take the fight very lightly. I think he doesn't have the passion and hunger he used to have, he's probably more concerned with his clothing line, celebrity apprentice and making home made pornos with jenna.
I also think the UFC is giving this fight as much publicity as it should. I think the beef between Tito and the UFC management got in the way with promoting the fight. Both parties seem to just be wanting to "get it out of the way"
