I dont know why anyone would think he has NO power. I think its more simply an issue of his "elusive" style that means he isnt going to throw a lot of strikes, and when he does they will be very calculated.
Honestly, this fight was extremely dominant and convincing. I thought Lyoto was good before, and I thought he had a real chance at the title, but now I'm 100% convinced he is the best fighter at LHW.
People can whine about his fighting style all they want, but the guy doesnt get in trouble, and the fact is like it or hate it, it gets results.
In a real fight, people should be modeling Lyotos style of elusive fighting. Most people dont have a strong chin, and its not particularly to most peoples advantage to stand there and duke it out with people. If you get into a fight, take your shots when they're there, and stay out of harms way. Self defense streetfighting really should emphasize this kind of strategy.
I'm officially now a Lyoto Machida nuthugger.
