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

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

You aked a question, I answered it. Fred Ettish is the reason that karate is considered a joke in mma. Learn some history.

This guy was not considered a joke when he entered the octagon.

Traditional karate teaches little or no take down defense or grappling techniques. Without those you don't get a chance to strike much.

Machida has had success because he has learned those things and because he has extraordinary skill and talent far beyond a typical karate black belt..
