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..
