Well, I think you do cause everytime you are talking about him you make something up to discredit his fighting style and his career. There are just to many of those posts that I can't say it's only a mistake by myself. The most recent one was when you were trying to say that Lyoto doesn't let his hands go lol^^

Machida's fight against Rampage "just one little example" was a balls out tough grinding fight to fight for both of them. Clinching against the cage is the hardest part in all of MMA and it takes the most out of your body by far!!!

Every time i look at it , just think back to Couture Vs Nog and Vera in which he was schooled on the ground and schooled on the feet , he will be hurt in every aspect in this fight.

Machida Via TKO. (Over Randy)

Velasquez will be back

The last three minutes of that fight were tough and grinding fight. The rest Machida backpedaled to the cage and was FORCED to clinch by Rampage. And clinching, while it is tiring is not anything close to rolling constantly going on the mat. When a guy just lays on top of someone it's tiring but a standing clinch against the cage doesn't take the same out of you as grappling.

I'm not saying Machida could not beat Jones. I in fact I've had him second on my list as most likely to do it. I'm just saying he wouldn't win because his style makes Jones gas, because his style doesn't lead to guys gassing. moving around a cage and missing with punches is not as tiring as grappling, it just isn't.

Think. It Ain't Illegal Yet
