I'll break it down for ya the way I see it tim i expected more discussion under this one. Remember what Brock did against Herring? He straight charged him and football tackled him. This removes Machidas elusiveness from the picture, as Brock could definately do the same to Machida. I am very pro Brock in this matchup because of the size. Brocks a scary ass meat monster who will be too big for Machida. I also don't see Machidas hands being all that effective if the fight stayed standing up. Lyoto throws straight punches, and would have a hard time doing damage to Brock. Brock would control where the fight would go, which is the ground, and would win a decision or 2nd or 3rd round tko.
