    Machida sick before tonights fight?

    Post  rudeboyben84 on Sat Dec 10, 2011 12:10 pm

    This from Jordan Breen over at Sherdog:

    Also, word round the campfire here in Toronto is that Machida is battling a cold, flu, pneumonia, or some other such thing. Pretty much been holed up in his room moreso than usual. We’ll see if that ultimately amounts to anything.


    Shit not good news, he was looking a bit more cut than usual at the weighins. I hope there isnt any truth in it because if he is feeling a bit weak or sluggish he is going to get mauled by Jones I think.

    Nice one mate, thanks for that. I hope its not true, Ive been telling even people who arent into MMA to get this fight recorded. I reckon its going to be great to see such unusual styles clash....

    Do you know are all these figths 5 rounds? or Is Nog vs Mir 5 rounds?

    I read that Bisping/Maia and Sonnen/Munoz are 5 rounders despite not being main events...

    Whats the craic with these 5 round fights? I never know what ones will be 5 rounders now.

    i havent heard about non main events being 5 rounds. Mir-Nog is 3 rounds i think. Not sure about Sonnen-Munoz.

    Heres the Weigh-in pics...

    http://mmajunkie.com/news/26470/ufc-140-weigh-in-photos-an-mmajunkie-com-image-gallery.mma

    Machida looks in a career best shape, He has never looked that ripped. Theres people below commenting and joking about him adding 22lbs of Muscle... Dont get where they get that or im missing the joke but he looks in the best shape ive seen him in.

    He could use every bit of strength he has and his Sumo background because if Jones is able to push him about and throw him around easily like he has with others it could be a short night.

    Im really hoping for Machida and Both Nogs!! Come on Blackhouse!!

    Was just reading that Lil Nog stuffed 69% of Baders TD's (in a fight I think he clearly should have won on "cage controll") and he stuffed 64% of Phil Davis' TD's.

    For Me Ortiz isnt as good a wrestler as Davis and if Nog can defend anything like 60% of Tito's TD's he has a very good chance of stopping Tito.

    Tito said he is 2 and done. After this he wants a rubbermatch with Forrest. I reckon he will get it win or loose here becaue Forrest isnt exactly in the Mix these days.

    Mir/Nog is 3 rounds. Interesting them Stats Ben. Do you see Nog getting the win? It could go either way for me, very hard to call.

    Also, can anyone confirm if the televised section is on UFC.tv for us?

    Preliminary card (televised)Bantamweight bout: Yves Jabouin vs. Walel Watson[1]
    Catchweight (158.5lb) bout: John Makdessi vs. Dennis Hallman[1]
    Middleweight bout: Jared Hamman vs. Constantinos Philippou[1]
    Light Heavyweight bout: Krzysztof Soszynski vs. Igor Pokrajac[1]

    Yeah I dont think Tito is a good enough wrestler to controll the fight like Davis and his Striking despite one good knockdown latlet isnt great... he could hang with Forrest but I honestly expect Lil Nog would wipe the floor with Forrest (infact im nearly certain Forrest ducked Nog before)

    Tito is going to try and Mix up the striking and wrestling like Davis and get destroyed on the feet. I did an article about Lil Nogs training camp and he has brough in 2 big Hw Wrestlers and spend a lot of time perfecting his already good TDD. Tito is getting KO'd! Twisted Evil

    It is much easier to defend takedowns than get takedowns. Also those figures mean nothing, actually they do mean something, having a TDD of 60% means that if ur opponent shoots in 5 times you get taken down twice. Not that impressive!!! lol

    Jeez lyoto is looking very lean! As are a lot of the other fighters! Tito looks ill... Guess this is the new style fighters are going for!

    I really hope that Machida is 100%, because if not, it could be a very short night. I am intrigued as to how the fight will pan out, it was stylistic match ups like this, that really first grabbed my attention in MMA. That picture of Tito @ the weigh in, looks nowt like him, has he had a face transplant?

    A slight rumour. Probably very little truth in it.

    Still guarantee it will feed Anfield's excuse engine if Machida loses tonight. Mark my words.

    Well; as per usual jones has won , to be honest cant see who will stop him now .rampage,machida and shogun all beaten .
    Rashad ,davis cant see doing alot either . IMO the division has become a little bit lightweight with any other talent coming through.
    Still not convinced that jones has a decent chin tho as looked in a spot of bother last night as well as his striking is proper powder puff!!

    Loved the korean zombie fihght tho ,,,,how quick was that lol
