i was thinking this too, but now im thinking.... can you "adjust" 31 years of karate training, stance and technique just to try to stop leg kicks?? Im not so sure, but im interested to find out, i do know Machida is very good at Muay Thai but i dont think he wants to take his chances in a MT war with Shogun. Im starting to think those legs will just be exposed all the time for a guy like Shogun, every technique has a weakness, sometimes it takes time to find it, but be sure, an elite fighter will.
