The Beauty about an Takedown artist!

http://www.spladdle.com/2008/05/lyot...takedown-gifs/

He really makes it seem so easy, so beautiful!

I think we will see another one in the upcoming battle of the Dragon


If you didn't already know it, Lyoto Machida has exceptional takedowns and takedown defense. Here are his UFC statistics.

VS Sam Hoger
Takedowns 7/9
Takedown defense 4/5

VS David Heath
Takedowns 0/0
Takedown defense 2/2

VS Nakamura
Takedowns 4/6
Takedown defense 5/7

VS Sokoudjou
Takedowns 1/2
Takedown defense 2/4

VS Ortiz
Takedowns 1/2
Takedown defense 8/8

VS Thiago Silva
Takedowns 2/2
Takedown defense 1/1

Total against all opponents
Takedowns 15/21 = 71%
Takedown defense 22/27 = 81%


Relevant points of interest:

1) The UFC average takedown success rate is 45%. The UFC takedown defense success rate is 55%. GSP's takedown success rates are 75% offense and 85% defense.

2) All of Lyoto's takedowns come through leg trip and sweeps.

3) Of the 5 successful takedowns made on Lyoto, 4 have come through Judo type legs trips (Nakamura and Soko) and 1 (Hoger) was by way of a caught kick.

Lyoto has not had a kick caught since that first fight. That makes for 72 minutes and 52 seconds in which he has fought that he hasn't had a kick caught.

4) Lyoto has never been taken down with traditional wrestling (double legs, single legs etc). Ortiz tried 8. Hoger tried 4. Heath tried two. Silva tried 2. None have been successful.

Lyoto is one of greatest TD and TDD fighters in MMA today. His Takedowns and Takedown defense are often overlooked by many. Even after he slipped against Shogun, Rua wasn't able to get him down!

Lyoto is by far one of the best in this aspect of MMA!

Well I'm guessing he's gonna be going balls-to-the-wall trying to get that takedown when he takes on Shogun again. Otherwise, the same result will occur (ie Shogun wins again).

The one vs. Penn is hilarious. The man with one of the best TDDs in mma gets dropped like a bag of trash, then again the weight difference was pretty big in that fight, good luck seeing any LW doing that to Penn.

Nice trips though, very different from GSP's more traditional takedowns. Ufc needs more high caliber judokas now that Sokky and Karo are gone. The judo trips and hip trows are perfect for mma if the user has solid ground game, basically 1 good trip/hip trow and you are already in side control.

Why would you want Jones to be crippled so early in his career? C'mon man, the dude's only like 23, he's got plenty to live for.

I think shogun vs machida is the best shogun has ever looked against the worst machida we've ever seen. Cant see shogun being able to improve on that performance but im pretty certain Machida will.
the last fight was damb close but not enough on shoguns part to take a champs belt. UFC score round by round and IMO machida took the first three....decision was good !
