After his ko loss to Shogun, Lyoto will be gunshy and return to his most elusiveness ever. He will leg kick Rampage to death as Page waits the entire fight hoping to throw the one punch ko. See what Rashad did to Rampage and Lyoto will simply do it better.

Rampage via KO

When Lyoto tries to dart in watch Page eat one punch so he can throw a left hook which will sleep Machida

IMO this is a bad match up for Machida

I think this fight greatly depends on which Rampage shows up to the fight. If its the Rampage that fought Rashad, then I think Lyoto will win decision. If the old Rampage from Pride returns, then Page by knockout!!

Rampage hasn't learned anything new since his Pride days. He still can't check a leg kick.

Thus, if Lyoto remains elusive then Page will spend the entire fight waiting to throw one gorilla punch which is what he did against Rashad. However, if Lyoto gets stupid and stands there in from of Rampage, then his head is going to get knocked into the 17th row.

I expect Lyoto to be spooked from his ko loss and come in more elusive than ever.

He will rack up points with leg kicks while Rampage does nothing but whiff some bombs where Lyoto used to be standing.
