Default Cung Le vs Lyoto Machida who do you think would win?

Obviously assuming a catchweight fight the coolest battle of styles in my opinion who do you think would win?

I'd figure you would oppose that, RN, and directly jump to Maia getting him on the mat and strangling him, which is what I'd expect. Couldn't say he'd be that much of an easier opponent than Machida, he's less likely to stand with him and more dangerous on the ground, even if he is shit on his feet.

Machida like nails said just a better fighter more well rounded! And against Maia he would get taken down and subbed quick!

i only feel machida is more dangerous because cung le has more chance of getting KTFO. i cant really see cung beating maia you never know when a nate marquadt style ko is round the corner. either way le probably leaves the octagon concious against maia.

I really want to see Diaz vs. Le assuming Le completes a tune up fight prior to taking on Diaz. There really isn't anybody left for Diaz to fight in SF so they might as well put two of their biggest stars together for a fight. Someone's getting KO'd or subbed and it's likely Le but the match will be fun to watch.

I don't think Cung Le's coming back, and if he does, I reckon the UFC would snap him up in an instant.

machida would win with a KO or TKO.
he has an unusual style and is weird to adapt to
