Machida shouldn't change his style if he doesn't want to but I highly doubt he will ever become a star in the UFC with the way he fights.
This pretty much sums it up for me.

Who do you guys think in the UFC has been the closest to beating him?

He's not the most exciting because he doesn't knock people out or destroy people on the ground like Maia. We all know how effective he is though. I'd like to see him fight someone with good stand up and some KO power before I put him on any P4P list. He is one of my favorite fighters though. The way he tools other good fighters is fun to watch by itself.

I actually think a good aggresive striker could be his downfall. The problem with everyone who has fought Machida lately is that they work right into his game. Call me crazy but I think a guy like Wandy has the best shot at taking him down. Just balls to the wall knowing youre going to eat some shots going in.

Why should he change the way he fights if he keeps winning? I personally don't find him to be that boring and I will keep rooting for him. I definitely think he will beat Silva's winning streak in the future.

Yeah, the thing with Machida is that the dude is never willing to take a risk. He will always wait for you to over commit and then capitalize on your mistake.

It is very smart fighting but it can make for a dull fight. Most people are willing to have some risks in order to finish the fight but Machida won't do it.

I think if somebody were to pull guard on him they could SUB him, you can call me crazy too.

Sorry, but this is MMA and it involves point Karate. If people like Forrest, Rashad, Liddell want to keep winning, they need to know how to counter his mobility.
