Cool The Shogun Slaying the Dragon

Machida is not a god of martial arts. A lot of people beleive Machida will figure it out next time blah blah blah. Why didn't he figured it out way ahead before this fight?

It appears though that Machida is seen as so an intelligent fighter and would figure out a better game plan against Shogun.

Don't discount Shogun. Now, Shogun too had a fair estimate of Lyoto's "ELUSIVENESS" and countering, at least i can assume that.

There will be blood flowing in one of these fighters when that rematch happens and Machida will be destroyed mercilessly.

The Shogun Slaying the Dragon.

That is my prediction........

Thank you guys for noticing the errors.......

Sorry guys for my badly written english but i hope you get what i mean...

I'm referring to him as The Ninja personally, because that's how i think of him as a fan... ever since that time i was watching all his fights in PrideFC.

I thought Machida would win rather easily, but Shogun's plan of attack was darn near perfect.

Against Liddell, I remember saying to myself: this dude's as graceful and athletic as GSP. Very rarely do you see any athlete in MMA with GSP's graceful athleticism, but Shogun was right there, perhaps without the extraordinary strength or wrestling, but his skill level was at least the equal of GSP.

Anyway, it was a great, extended tactical match. The type of fight you used to see when Sugar Ray Leonard held court against the greats of his era: Tommy Hearns and Marvin Hagler.

Having said that, I can't say I'm too fired about the apparently inevitable re-match. Neither fighter is too intent on making a mistake, and both utilized a relatively conservative, slow burn, grind 'em down style of attack.

One additional point: while Dana claims that Machida is not difficult to market, I did notice one thing: in the equivalent seating sections, tickets for Machida/Rua were about half the prices for Lesnar/Carwin.

Wouldn't your post be clearer if you said, "The Shogun slaying The Dragon." Instead of the ninja, ninja is not mauricio, wrong person.
