"It’s going to be a hard fight [Rashad Evans vs. Lyoto Machida]. Lyoto is a man who gets to make a game tough to be reproduced for any sparring, while Rashad is very strategic. Both are very technical and competent but I root for Lyoto. I would say it is 60% to 40%. I cannot see any gap in Lyoto’s game. He is athletic and very good in all. We know one another well, we’re friends and I wouldn’t like to fight him. However, it can happen. I don’t choose opponent. It is up to the UFC."
