    I think machida's counter striking is to clean and his take down defense to good...

    I had Machida over Rampage and Davis over Machida.

    That makes just about as much sense. I'm assuming he would have meant his fights against Rampage and Phil Davis, in which case, still wrong. Those fights were very close but I had them both going against Machida.

    I still say this is a HORRIBLE matchup for Munoz.
    I agree.

    If one were to factor in how Munoz looked in his last fight.... Machida takes this.

    Prime Munoz would give Machida trouble... but Munoz taught Machida a considerable amount of takedown defense.

    On the fence, but I think Machida is more likely going to take this.

    The trick to beating Machida is just be more active then him. With the current scoring system in place you will win. Just keep him backing up and keep attacking. Don't get frustated when you can't hit him, just keep swinging and go for takedowns.

    If once again for 2 rounds he just keeps avoiding punches, and finally in the 3rd round he fights, then once again he will lose 29-28.

    A win over Machida doesn't even need an explanation on how much it'd mean for Munoz.

    Which leads me to say that Munoz is getting murdered in this fight, imo.

    Munoz has to dig deep, tuck his chin, and try to kill Machida, or I don't see how he can logically win. Highly doubtful that Munoz catches him with a big punch unless he charges through fire. Even at that, he has to literally catch Machida on the feet first or cut him off somehow, who is one of the most elusive fighters ever. Cutting him off and getting a hold of him, let alone hitting him, is an extremely arduous task. Can't wait to see if Munoz can do anything.

    Machida should take this. His ability to move in and out of range quickly and it seems to really fustrate the wrestlers he faced. Tito, Rashad, Bader, Couture and Davis (which I feel he won). I see Munoz getting fustrated, overcommitting and getting KO'd.
