Machida's style is still very much dominating, as there aren't many, if none, that can kick like Shogun did tonight.

As far as fixing his style, he probably took a big notice today, him and his dad and brothers, and will find a way to tweak the style a bit to help protect from fighters that use kicks a lot.

youre retarded go watch the fight again, even joe and goldberg where making it clear that everytime machida threw a kick SHOGUN yes SHOGUN countered with leg kicks, jesus christ.

someone once asked me when we talk about PrideFC why we never put
"the" in front of it, i asked him, "do you put the word 'the' in front of God?"
