And those 2 are probably the 2 best he has fought which tells me he is not smart when gameplanning against the best and anderson is better than both.
Machida was the real dumb one. Rashad thought he was this great striker after stopping Liddell. Once Machida beat him he went wrestling mode. And JBJwasnt exactly an awful fight. Rashad had moderate success (which is more than most can say) and he went all 5 rounds (which nobody else can say).
Anderson is not like either though. He doesn't have the huge size advantage and the wrestling ability of JBJ and while he is elusive, it is in a different way than Machida.
