Anderson is in no way the same way. He will get mad and unleash leg kick after leg kick. He will stalk and corner. How often do you see Anderson run backwards in circles? Like one fight ever? The Maia fight where he was just being a weirdo. When people come forward ANderson plants and returns fire while moving his head. Machida runs backwards pulling his head back....literally running backwards.

Anderson unleashes crazy combos and sits in the pocket using head movement.

Anderson at times is a counter puncher....but a totally different one. Their styles are very different.

We wanted him to fight. I understand his style, but sometimes it gets a bit ridiculous. If people can get warned and stood up for not doing anything....fighters should get warned and placed on the ground when they aren't doing anything standing.

People should refuse to fight Machida. No one should want to be in a crappy fight. No one should want to fight Machida. If you aren't an easy KO target like Randy or Bader then it is going to be a pathetic kick and run fight.
don't worry that's just what stupid people say when they have no argument, because the obvious answer to the question is machida should have been landing big counter shots everytime hendo missed with a right hand swing with his speed advantage, another option would be to take hendo down again and ground pound him or submit him. But the dummies who use said argument go DUHHHHH DO YOU WANT HIM TO BRAWL it's not rocket science bonehead.

What do you meen by "We wanted him to fight."?

Explain me what you mean by it if you can imagine that would work against Hendo while not being dragged to a brawl while at it.

A brawl is winging punches without much care.

Fighting is actually trying to hurt your opponent a bit and not settle for sneaking out a decision on the cards. He tried the same and lost on the cards vs. Rampage. I thought he learned his lesson but I guess he didn't.

If you can't see the difference, then I don't know. I can't help you along anymore.

I guess you would say Guida had a good plan vs. Maynard because he couldn't take him down and he didn't want to feel Maynard's power. So he ran around the cage.

^ I don't think you realize that people who do that against Hendo end up knocked out on the canvas.

keywords here, to see if you get the point: Hendo, H-bomb, Iron chin.

Do what? Fight?

Jake Shields didn't. Rampage didn't. Franklin didn't that was a close decision.

Should I name more?

You are a big Machida fan. I get it. Basically the only ones backing Machida this morning are his raging fans. It is ok. Agree to disagree. I won't buy Jones/Machida. You will. No big deal.

Meh, Machida is going to get annihilated by Jones, and he'll be forced to move down to MW. So in the end this will all be for the best.

I do love that people think Machida is 'back'. As if KOing a middle aged Couture on the night of his retirement, beating a clearly over matched Ryan Bader, and dancing around a 42 year old Dan Henderson who was as immobile as a car with a flat tire somehow makes him the second coming. I like Machida, and I thoroughly enjoy his karate style, but some people are in for a rude awakening.

I don' think you're being fair.
The techniques Machida used in this fight were good enough to put Bader and Coutoure on the canvas.
I think you should blame Hendo's chin for not allowing the outcome that you find exciting.

p.s. I don't remenber how the Page and Rich fights went,
but if you're using the Shields fight as an example you´re just helping my point.
Hendo almost put him to sleep in the 1st and the other 4 rds were only Jake humping Dan.

That is when Machida looks like a new exciting guy. When he fights old men or Bader who is a novice striker at best. He sure makes them look stupid.

UFC should just give Machida guys that put no fear into him. Then he will actually go out there with bad intentions. Give him Forrest to jump kick to the face.

He didn't even hit Hendo. The kicks hardly landed. They looked "cool" but they were distractions to say "hey look at me, I'm trying to fight".....from 7 feet away.

That is what Shield's does. He is a 170lber who was willing to take an H-Bomb and did to get into grappling range. You said people who get close to him and fight get KO'd. Jake at WW survived a H-Bomb.
