    Luke is talented but I think he is overestimating himself and underestimating Lyoto. I see him giving Lyoto a good fight but not coming away with the victory.

    Rockhold’s got this. He’s the more well rounded fighter of the two but needs to watch out for Machida’s unpredictable style.

    Lyoto reminds me of Chuck Liddell. To get a victory he really needs guys that have weak standup games. He’s a great counter grappler. Luke beats Lyoto, then gets a shot at Vitor (who beats Weidman), then gets beat again by Belfort

      i think luke might just beat machida but i cant see vitor beating weidman, weidman has had the benifit of seeing vitors kicking game now, i think luke was caught out by it when they fought. vitor will prob be a bit smaller off the trt and will expect weidman to be strong in the clinch again, also think weidman has decent edge in the grappling, but weidman has been out a while now so he could be sluggish i guess

      Vitor will not beat Weidman or Rockhold again for that matter. Vitor is thru. In fact he was juiced up and plain lucky in his last three fights.

        Why, because you say so? Anything can happen in MMA. Bisping will always come off second best against top ten guys. Since coming off TRT, Hendo is not what he’s used to be and been easy to finish. Luck my ass!
