Haven't ever considered this before. That could be really interesting. I'd have to pic Machida.

Two highly skilled counter-punchers, probably make for an insanely boring fight. Phone Post

Gegard would win.
Lyoto is close to past his best time imo.

mousasi all day. You have to set traps for Chida like shogun did and mousasi can do that. Phone Post

I think gay guard takes it as well. Cleaner striking good timing and solid chin. If machida doesn't evade it's a real solid match up. I'm interested to see how gay guard does against Gus. He has the striking advantage and if he can work on td defense he has it IMO. Phone Post

Machida is bigger faster and definitely the better wrestler.

I think mousasi beats him on the feet. I think mousasi is to small for lhw. Bit I think he beats gustaf. Machida > gustaf everywhere Phone Post

Too close to call imo.
I do think if it ended in a KO, it'd more likely be at the hands of Gheyguard.

I really, really, really want to see this fight.
I'd LOVE to see it in PRIDE rules or a ONEFC format.
The UFC model would stifle it's potential, but I'll take what I can get. Phone Post

Machida is too fast and has better timing. He'd hurt Moose.

eagleswhat1 - LOL@MACHIDA BEATING GEGARD....Mousasi is the best striker at 205 period. Dominating the K-1 HW champ in kickboxing should tell you that.
If you think Machida wins this with striking you don't know what you're looking at. Machida would have to take him down and try to not get swept for 15-25 minutes
Mma and k1 are different. Some guys are the best but tyrone sponge who is also a lhw is the best striker at 205. Mousasi is up there but machida would be unlike anyone hes fought and I'd say lyotis bjj and wrestling exceed Mousasi s. Mousasi is among my favorite fighters. Phone Post

Mousasi by Shogunesque (II) pressing finish the whole fight.

Btw I know what I'm looking at that. I watched mousasi live that morning beat kyataro. Machida is bigger stronger and faster and can throw some extreme power. Your bias against karate is stupid. Like I said mousasi is among my favorite fighters. And tyrone sponge is the best lhw striker Phone Post

They are different, but you have a pro mma fighter dominating a K-1 champ....that says a lot. Machida wins with his timing, spacing and striking against lower level strikers in MMA.
Look what happen when he fought someone who knew how to cut him off and time him....got punished for 5 rounds then KTFO in a rematch...against shogun.
Safe to say Mousasi is a better striker then Shogun and has better footwork given his Kickboxing/Boxing experience and the style he uses inside the cage.
Now Machida taking this fight to the ground would involve getting in exchanges with Gegard which is the complete opposite of every Machida gameplan.
Your mma math doesn't work Because machida beat Dan who beat shogun standing the entire time. Does that mean machida is the best striker? He holds wins over both men?

Styles makes fights. I'm not saying mousasi couldn't beat him. I'm saying Dont down play machida like you did. That was pretty rude. "He s good at karate in a cage" what kind of shit is that? The dude stands with everyone he may evade a lot but if you can't hit him is their fault. The whole point of martial arts is to inflict as much damage as possible while recieving as little as possible. He's been top 5 some he's been in the ufc and constantly comes in underweight like mousasi.

It would be a war. A great fight but again tyrone spong ruins above on the feet at lhw even Jones. But the dude can't defend a high level take down. Phone Post
