    Ok i don't like Machida but i put him ahead of Rashad for a fight for the title i think he's beat better if not at least the same level of competion i dont' care if you say he's boring imo so was rashad before he found his hands against Chuck and feet with salmon. i am far from a nut hugger or hater of either fighter.

    I have Lyoto behind Page tho. That title fight should have been an immediate rematch being how close it was imo with that not happening i feel he should get the shot at the belt without the thiago fight. If he does beat thiago he should be the number one contender. All he has done is win you could say the same of Rashad so to be honest its all subjective and the only person it really makes a difference how they feel about the number one contender is Joe Silva and the ufc brass

    I agree with the few that have said he should fight rashad and get a shot after that just to get a legitimate #1 contender but where does that leave the winner of wandy vs page a long wait in line in stacked division i guess that just the brakes imo

    LHW is so stacked the layoffs in between fights for title contenders are gonna happen especially with having so many earning a look at a title shot.

I like Thiago but he should be the steak on the plate of a returning Shogun.
    I agree. Forrest/Rampage rematch first. Let Machida have Rashad. He wins against Rashad, give him a title shot.

    Prolong it all you want, but you can't stop the inevitable, Machida's taking the title whether it's a month from now or 6 months from now. Dana's worst fears of WW, MW, LHW, and HW being owned by a non American will indeed come true.

    he deserves a title shot, now, nevermind after beating thiago. i don't think management is holding him down because of his 'boring' style... but more because he would most likely cut straight through a thoroughly stacked LHW division.

    and no way in hell they give him franklin.... effectively euthanizing a big star. i mean hell, where would rich go after that?

    That's funny...not caring about my opinion but whining about me negging you is just as logical as stating you don't want to debate, you were just giving your opinion and then calling it a conversation.

    Well how about that. We're on the same page. The difference is you go out of your way to neg me and post 'observations' and I tend to ignore you because it helps me think the forum has respectable mods.

    Thnx for your 'observation' though. It was, simply put, amazing.

    I was just making an observation based on what you said...I don't really care if you post or you slink or what you do, and if you're opinion of me mattered, I'd care. But it doesn't.

    You were talking about insta-hate in a thread that didn't have any...I was pointing out that you're over-reacting while you're talking about Machida fans over-reacting...and then you say something like your not interested in debating, you just want to state your opinion.

    Is that what it was? I thought I was having a discussion, with other MMA fans. I was also speaking about what I've seen over my time here on the forums, starting long before I ever even registered on the site. I have no problems with rebuttals, which is why I responded directly to Nebraska.

    I realize this may come as a surprise to you, but just because you don't like me doesn't mean I'm going to slink away with my tail between my legs. I think your a douchebag, so I figure fair is fair.

    I'd also point out that I've seen plenty of folks bash other fighters and nobody says boo. The minute it's Machida though, there is holy hell to pay. So again, I say to you, Machida fans are out of line in the insta-hate they spew.

    I'm not really trying to debate here, but I feel obligated to point a few things out. Because I honestly feel like your viewpoint is skewed on this one.
    Where has there been insta-hate in this thread?

    And if you aren't trying to debate, shouldn't you just keep quiet? Other than that, it's just you stating an opinion and not wanting to hear any rebuttal.
