I'm one of the biggest Machida nut huggers I know. I was 100% sure he would win by knock out. Machida lost, anyone who says otherwise is blind."a martial art that has no rules is nothing but violence" - Kenji Tomiki

Sorry to misinterpret. I saw your posts here and in G-Off's analysis thread, added in my recollection of your JMA forum comments ("eschew karate and judo in favor of boxing in all cases") and came to the conclusion that you were a karate anti-nut-hugger. Nut slapper? If that's not the case, no worries. :)
It would be kind of funny if people started calling Machida names like krotty-boy or something. But then I'd want Machida to KO those people, for great justice.What a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable. -Xenophon's Socrates

Soko made a funny about Machida's krotty before their fight, said he was going to go practice Kung Fu in the jungle to prepare for their fight.

My feeling is that the American judges don't score kicks properly. I'd score it even on body shots/kicks/knees, and Lyoto got the upper hand on strikes to the head. If you figure that Rua was ahead on the leg kicks, and they counted for less in the judges eyes (not justifying, just speculating), I can see how they arrived at the decision.
That being said, I disagree with it. Rua won, but not decisively. Now let's all **** off and wait for what could be a very interesting rematch.Originally Posted by Sarcastro

Machida wasn't really off his game, so much as both were on. They should agree to fight in a special unlimited rounds format, keep going until someone is tko/subbed.
Also, imo Machida needs to make more of his kicking in this matchup. Hope they do the rematch asap.
