    His ball-kicking(/kneeing) abilities were far above Mirko's as well.

    MMA fans are made out of mercury. A week ago, machida was the coward that only backs up.

    Crocop's standup offense is completely predictable; his only serious offense is the lhk and occasionally the straight left hand, and he always circles in the same direction with little to no variation. Against a counter-fighter as fast as Machida he'd get embarassed even worse than he did against Kongo and Overeem.

    Well, considering the "Era of machida", is the era of him as the undefeatable champion..of course they'd say the era is over.

    He has become much more aggresive since then though.

    Machida is the "Liddell-upgrade" and his reign over the 205 division will last a bit longer than Chucks.

    I'll be interested to see what Evans does now. I think he's still one of the most talented 205lb guys out there, and I'm guessing he'll be itching for another title shot, but he'll have to prove he deserves it again, probably by beating up Griffin again or something.

    QFT. Sirc is an idiot. Edgar was very impressive, and the Hughes/Serra fight was a solid fight (although the result was disappointing).

    Also,

    MSphinx you are awesome for that pic.

    And Crocop would get taken down and destroyed pretty quickly by Machida.
