Lyoto Machida would be very long the UFC Lightheavyweight champion and the UFC told out the Machida area but they forgot the former Pride FC star Shogun Rua.
Lyoto Machida is a typical example for pumbed up UFC stars who only can beat other UFC but in a fight with a former Pride FC superstar we all saw that they isnt so like Dana Whuite try to make us believe. The fact is Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida both were before UFC in japan and both wasnt good enough to became Pride FC stars. Anderson Silva lost four times in japan and wasnt good enough to be a pride superstar. He fought in worse promotions because Pride FC dont want him. The same situation we have with Lyoto Machida he also fought in japan and was never a Pride star, because the real star was Shogun and Machida was not good enough for Pride FC. UFC bought this no pride FC stars for cheap money and pumped them up as UFC stars. But when they get really good former Pride fighters they will both lose and Machida lost because Anderson Silva for example was known from the pride fighters. Anderson Silva critize Dana White why Machida had to fight Shogun Rua and that was before the first fight because he knew Shogun from his japan time. Anderson Silva knew thet Shogun is better man. So Dana White dont pump up you fighters. bring the former pride stars and let them fight and you can pump than up when they beat them. So you UFC stars had to fight this fighters
Brock Lesnar-- Barnett, Fedor, Overeem or Rogers ( every of them would destroy him)
Anderson Silva--he should fight in the right weight class he is taller than fedor but fights in middleweight. Why? because he avoid stronger competition. He should fight King MO, Muasashi or Shogun
GSP is nothing special a wrestler who can lose to every good bjj fighter in japan.
