With all the commotion that’s leading up to the main event of UFC 94, it is easy to forget that there are other intriguing fights. One of the other events of the night which I am interested in is Lyoto Machida vs. Thiago Silva. Lyoto Machida is an elusive karate-based fighter while Thiago Silva is an aggressive muay thai practioner. They have contrasting fighting styles which I believe will make this match particularly interesting.

Personally, I am a fan of the mysterious Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida. Technically, he’s amazing to watch, with unorthodox striking and exceptional grappling skills. His unique style of karate is not seen anywhere else in MMA. And although many people think that he runs from his oppponents, I believe that he is simply a strategist who has the patience to wait for an opportune moment to pounce. The dude is a cold, calculating, ninja-like motherfucker.

Check out his training video and see for yourself…

My prediction for UFC 94? Lyoto Machida by 3rd round TKO.
