We’re not sure if this is supposed to make us believe that Lyoto Machida can beat Quinton Rampage Jackson at UFC 123. He pushes some weights, he does some striking – meh.
Both Jackson and Machida have knock out power. They can turn each other’s lights out. But really, its going to come down to who wants it more – and at this point we’d have to give that edge to Machida. Jackson’s lack luster media-ing lately shows that he’s not having much fun anymore. That’s telling.
All that – and the current betting line is favoring Machida at -260.
