Listen guys I am not a Karate fanboy. I love MMA which is why I am asking this, so I would appreciate more of a logical response than posting some movie name.

Andy Hug was one of the most famous Kyokushin practitioners.

Lechi Kurbanov is also one of the best today.

I AM BACKING IT UP with evidence, if you can back it up with logic, do care to post.:-

I already know that, which is why I mentioned Lyoto Machida didn't I?

GSP had to learn wrestling and boxing from the start and he is considered as a wrestler in the MMA world. Even though Chuck Liddell did Kenpo, he is widely credited as a Kickboxer.

ONLY and ONLY Machida uses Karate to its extent and considered a Karate fighter. Hell, even Bas Rutten did Karate.
