    Rashad gets better and better with each fight, it's going to be a tough fight to pick. I like both fighters, but I'm going to give the edge to the Dragon..

    If it goes to decision then Machida will win but I don't think he can finish the fight.

    I started out not liking Rashad, but after all these impressive Ko's it hard not to like him. I am bummed that Rampage got hurt and couldn't take this fight, but I guess Machida is next in line considering Rashad has about taken everyone else out.

    Changes made to UFC 98 due to injuries...

    After injuries to Yushin Okami (torn MCL) and James Irvin (torn meniscus) rendered the two middleweights unable to compete on May 23rd’s UFC 98 card in Las Vegas, Chael Sonnen and Xavier Foupa-Pokam have stepped up for what should be two exciting bouts at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

    Longtime MMA veteran Sonnen will look to stop Dan Miller’s three fight UFC winning streak in one 185-pound matchup, and exciting striker Foupa-Pokam will battle Drew McFedries in a clash of middleweight knockout artists in the other recently confirmed bout.

    I think it depends on how their last fight went. In this case he won pretty quick and by submission if I remember correctly. I know they have to take a pretty long lay off if they get KO'd before they can even start training again.
