    It's more of an Inoki thing. His punches are said to grant courage. Machida got an unprecedented THREE punches. Between that and drinking his own piss, he'll retire with the belt.

    I think Ali vs Inoki could have a big effect on the martial arts if either one had a convincing victory- like Ali scoring a knockout or Inoki doing some old school grappling technique, like an arm scissor. This may have required a tweaked ruleset. With so little knowledge about cross-style competition, the average person would probably conclude that the winning art was superior.

    Bruce Lee vs Wong Jack Man- again, a convincing victory where one outclassed the other could have changed the face of CMA and JKD. It really would have been more convenient for the historian if it was a public match that was videotaped (so it could be analyzed for dim mak techniques of course).

    I also agree with Tyson vs Douglas- that was a fight that was a long drawn out match that could have gone either way. Eventually someone else would have beaten him though.

    Robin Givens and her mother played a large role in Tyson's demise as well.

    I'll go first.

    YouTube - Muaythai VS Kickboxing (in USA)

    Had this fight ended with Changpeuk getting KO'd it would become a **** storm of MT vs. american karate nonsense every time it was brought up. I think that Muay Thai would've lost a good amount of it's steam had this ended up the other way around.

    That Thai Fighter just kept going towards that kickboxer just like what happend in the movie kickboxer, where he fights the Thai Champ
    and gets WTFPWNED
    Muay Thai and kickboxing both amazing Martial Arts
    but that Thai fighter in the video was amazing :)

    Had Machita lost and not received the Triple Inoki Punch of Luck he would have gotten beaten to a pulp in all of his matches thus preventing karate from making its come back.

    I already made this reference: http://www.bullshido.net/forums/show...hlight=machida

    It's called the toukon. It's a legendary blessing from Inoki. This is how it started.

    YouTube - inoki "Start of legend Toukon Binta"

    Inoki blesses only the greatest Japanese fighters with the Toukon. A blessing of courage, strength and the fighter's spirit. I want to get one.

    I always love the look on Ali's face when Inoki just keeps taking out his legs.
    How come you didn't mention Spinks/Inoki??

    Bruce Lee vs Wong Jack Man- again, a convincing victory where one outclassed the other could have changed the face of CMA and JKD. It really would have been more convenient for the historian if it was a public match that was videotaped (so it could be analyzed for dim mak techniques of course).
    During that era, it wouldn't have been necessary.
    NOW, it would. But damn, that would be sweet to see.

    I also agree with Tyson vs Douglas- that was a fight that was a long drawn out match that could have gone either way. Eventually someone else would have beaten him though.
    Eventually, yeah. Someone would have. But during that era, a large portion of the heavyweight fighters and champs were either fat (Page, Berbick, Witherspoon, Thomas) small (Spinks, Tillman, Frazier, Green) or had weak chins (Snipes, Williams, Smith, Briggs) so they were tailor-made to Tyson. Hell, the knock on Douglas for years was: lazy. He just put it together at a time Tyson wasn't.

    I honestly think Foreman would have taken him out before Holyfield or Lennox Lewis.
