UFC Quick Quote: Rashad Evans vs Lyoto Machida to be 'one of the biggest fights ever'

"I don’t think it’s going to go to a decision; I don’t think it's going to go to the score cards. I think this is one of those specialty fights that people should get interested in because this fight, technically, should be one of the biggest fights ever in UFC history."

-- Color Ed Soares -- the manager for several Brazilian mixed martial arts stars, including number one light heavyweight contender Lyoto Machida -- confident that the UFC 98: "Evans vs. Machida" main event will end early on May 23. Soares also tells that he feels the 205-pound match up will be one for the ages, which is quite a statement because of the styles of both fighters. Machida is an elusive counter striker and Evans is a strong wrestler who has recently showcased incredible punching power. It's a tough fight to call ... tell us who you've got and why in the comments section below. Do your share Mr. Soares' optimism or not so much?
