I'm going to take your word that he said that, cause I can't find it, but I doubt you would lie.

I still believe that was said purely in the interest of promotion, and not to be taken in the literal sense of it being his single goal in the fight.

I'm sure Machida really wanted to knock Tito out, but he clearly wasn't willing to sacrafice the fight or his fighting style to do so. When he realized Tito was still going to be a challenge (or perhaps he already expected it) he knew he would have to play it smart to win.

I've always had respect for the way Machida fights until now 2 fights in a row he's made the statement he's going to knock out his opponents. Sure he could come away with the decition in this fight but really what are the chances of him knocking out Thiago? Thiago has a very proven chin and Machida does not have any kind of proven knockout power.

when you're goal is to win a points race and you do it I say it's effective. If you say you're goal's to knock a guy out and you throw the weak sauce he was throwing tito I can't call that effective.

And then he would get rediculed for specifically saying he's fighting for points?

IF everyone didn't deliver or didn't stick to there talk pre-fight, they must be rediculed? or its just another thing to give their opponent to think about. Like when Mousasi took down Manoheef when he said he was gonna stand he should be rediculed...or bisping who said he shit then specifically state that he was going for a UD

and in theory MAchida was closer to KOing tito then chuck was Wandy, cause Tito was rocked BAD by the knee. Why aren't you rediculing Tito, he said he had better stand up, and look what happened. He said he wasn't going for a quick KO or sub by wanted to hurt Machida.....but he went for a triangle anyway...if you can't see that Machida is trying to hype the fight then you are just blind. If every fighter didn't do EXACTLY as they would say, then you would be complaining a lot more then this....pretty obvious you just don't like Machida.

Anyway, i said Machida by UD but Thiago is aggressive and may get caught with a counter and taste the mat...i would certainly hope so
