    Thanks for the info.
    Come on now. He trains in other arts. But he doesn't pull guard and look for triangles does he?

    His game plan is to use his karate skills to counter strike. The karate stance is an important part of his tactical plan. My point is that we, and everyone who might fight im in the future, have seen a weakness is his game plan: his exposed front leg.

    I like Dana's comment on Mazzagatti. "That guy shouldn't be allowed to even watch MMA, much less ref it".

    At least we have a rematch to look forward to.

    Just watched the Velasquez/Rothwell fight. Holy ****. What beautiful wrestling.

    I'm not one to judge, though, but was it odd how bent-over Cain was while going for the singles? Confidence or some kind of adjustment for striking?

    Round two was Machida, four and five went to Shogun.

    The other two are close, open to interpretation. Not a robbery, a close decision.

    I'm looking at the website right now. The scores show Nog 346 v Couture 304, or 29-28 to Nog using the ten point must.

    I do remember Fightmetric's makers saying that Big Nog is an outlier when applied to their formula, because he can win rounds (and fights) while suffering inhuman beatings.

    Anyway, back on topic.

    I think Machida's 'weakness' to leg kicks won't be something many people can capitalise on. It took one of MMA's top Muay Thai fighters to land them, so I don't think fighters of a different skillset would be able to replicate Shogun's strategy.

    I thought Shogun had the fight. However, I'm now too busy being excited for Shogun's next fight, whoever it is, to be more than surprised with the decision. I've only seen Shogun vs. Liddell previously, so I missed the Awesome Pride Era everybody's talked about.

    I kind of expected it to be just a matter of the UFC hyping Shogun up for draw, like Leites vs. Silva seemed to me, because they didn't have any better prospects for Machida. Being wrong like this is... actually really great. After this, Shogun's going to have a lot of fans, but I'm also looking forward to seeing if Machida really will adapt and pull it out in the future.

    Machida again, if there's any justice. Both have agreed to a rematch.

    Get Netflix or the Blockbuster equivalent and start renting, man. Or find a good torrent site and start downloading. Shogun's Pride fights are poetry. Violent, destructive, soccer-kicking, head-stomping poetry.

    Dana is still an asshole. He won't let Big John ref in the UFC ever again, he has no right to criticize any of the referees he's choosing over the best in the business.

    Allow me also to call Anthony Johnson a fucking idiot for his comments. The guy can't even make weight, but calls out 2 of the top 5 LHWs in the world for "not going out there like they should've" and says "hopefully next time it'll be a better fight."

    Well **** YOU "Scale Rumble(r)," that was an awesome fight regardless of the bad decision; a chessmatch between two veritable masters of their disciplines, and I'd watch that over a natural light heavy crushing a welterweight any day.
