    Machida!

    Machida's right hand was down while executing that knockout front kick in the IUFC last night.

    He left himself open with the hand down lol! Karate cant work against a skilled opponent LOL.

    Ooooops!

    Randy Couture is not a skilled opponent?

    Yes, karate, Muay Thai, Boxing, Sumo, Shotokan, and grappling amalgam works.

    Some might cross-train to use several styles in open-ruleset combat sports, and--for whatever reason--they make little or no mention of their first style. GSP sometimes comes across this way, though that may be just a question of media coverage.

    Others might cross-train so they can defend against several other styles in order to showcase their first style, as well as give it a better chance of success in open-ruleset bouts. Machida comes across this way, though in his case I don't think it's media slant.

    Meanwhile, what's the OP on about?

    If you understood the kick you'd know why his hand was down.

    Go watch some K-1 and complain about all those guys dropping their kicking-side hand every time they throw round kick.

    Andy Hug was proving your point over a decade ago. You're a little late to the party.

    Nevertheless, congratulations to Machida for shutting up some of the Karate bashers.

    MMA+Shotokan = a crane technique that really works.

    I like to think about it like this: MMA is primary and secondary education; TMA is college. Generations of Americans tried to jump straight to college and got pwned at Simon's Rock.

    I have zero respect for drunk nutriders who only appear after a win.
