    This has probably already been said, but...

    everything he does in standup looks exactly like typical Shotokan.
    Le is also a long time TKDer. TKD has strong Shotokan roots.

    45 degrees sideways-facing stance instead the squared up Muay Thai-esque stance most mma-ers use? Check.

    Reverse punch used instead of a left cross? Check.

    Round kicks have a distinct element of knee chamber instead of being swung like a baseball bat? Check.

    Focus on defensive counter punching? Check.

    Subtle, small footsweeps to upset the opponent's balance? Check.

    I could go on, but it's a Cung Le thread, not a Machida thread. I really don't get your point though. What do you expect them to do, start doing a kata in the middle of the octagon?
    Shotokan?

    Motherfucking Shotokan?

    Really?

    Machida's father is a prominent JKA instructor in Brazil. He can't get much more Shotokan. You can still like him; it just means you're a closet kata-loving homo.

    I love Machida's style. I hope he kickes the **** out of Tito Ortiz and chokes him with his own ego. But what the **** does that have to do with Cung Le practicing Shotokan?

    Ya...confused me for a second too until I realize all the Shotokan stuff was about Machida, not Le.

    Yeah, it's a tad unclear if you read it quoted in someone else's post instead of with the quote I was replying to. Not your/Question's fault.

    Anyways, I think it's great. The UFC is a lot more interesting the more distinctly varying styles show themselves. I never followed Cung Le before the Shamrock fight, but I'm watching some of his Sanshou stuff on YouTube atm. Man he really throws people.
