People seriously need to watch his fights before he won the title he used to get so much hate until he started knocking people out but the results speak for themselves. He won like he always did.

For being such a great counter striker, you'd think Machida would be able to land more and do more damage on someone as slow and predictable as Dan.

Lyoto did the last 2 with Hendo but forgot about that first part. The fight was garbage. It wasn't smart. It wasn't technical. It was one man doing everything to not fight and praying that the judges would score it his way.
Fight wasn't the most exciting.. No. But Dan landed nothing special.

Everyone has seen these fights.


This is called regression.

Snoozefest.

Machida is one of the few people who can make me yawn during a Henderson fight. Hendo moved forward the whole fight, threw kicks, knees, lefts and rights, went for clinches, got on top of Lyoto, was trying to fight, and Machida would back away and run anytime a fight might actually take place.

This is literally the first fight that I am disappointed at Machida in, and you're talking to a guy who once defended him in the first Shogun fight.

I think I've been one of the more vocal people on this board about Joe's bias commentating, so yeah there's that. The fact that Dan literally ran at Lyoto swinging his right hand, HOPING that it would land, is more of an indication of just how confused he was. He couldn't close the range on the longer/faster fighter and was totally shut down.

Yes, Dan landed leg kicks, it's well documented that if you get Machida to back up you can catch his legs. Shogun proved that much in their first fight, but that was pretty much all Dan had. Machida landed the front kick several times, he used the front kick to punch combo he dropped Rashad with, landed a nice body kick and got that takedown in the first. It was a master class in Machida karate.

I'm sorry you're upset that Hendo lost and looked miserable doing it. Lyoto exposed what we all have learned about Henderson, he's got nothing besides his right hand. If you avoid the right then you negate his entire game.

The two most one dimensional strikers hes face, Hendo and Rampage, hes done relatively nothing. Slow, plodding, predictable strikers, albeit successful and extremely dangerous ones, are supposed to be what Lyoto should annihilate with ease. He lost to Rampage and did absolutely nothing impressive against Hendo, while Hendo actually tried to fight.

Lyoto's speed is ridiculous though.
