Im pretty sure Nakamura has fought once with his GI on, and it was a half-gi(just the top) against Silva. But i could be wrong. But in any case, hes fought a lot more without his GI.
This is a though call if you ask me. I thought Machida would of been given the favorite in odds.. I think its a pretty risky bet, it could go either ways.
Nakamura has been thrown at too many great fighters in Pride for his level. He is overrated in Japan if you ask me, but i like him a lot, and i think he is great.
But i dont know enough about Machida's ground game to decide who i would bet on. Standing up, Nakamura is going to try to clinch asap. If he does the mistake to trade, despite having decent standup techniques(no power tho), theres a good chance this will end in a KO.
As of now, i have Nakamura by decision. But ill look for some Machida fights, then ill say my pick. I didnt even see him against Heath..
Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.
