Karate in MMA

As a Karate practitioner myself I often wonder why is Karate as an art is overlooked in MMA world? Joe Rogan always find it funny that Machida made it big being a Karate fighter, he keeps comparing him to streetfighter's video game characters.

I see YouTube videos of fights b/w styles involving Karate against other form of fighting styles and I never once saw Karate guy doing bad or losing. Be it against Kickboxing or Teakwondo.

So, I am just confused as to why to this is considered as a joke when is comes to direct no holds bar fighting?
