    Cut Ryan Cut oor and nothing happens
    It is not about win or lose, it is about heart. Leave all you have in the Octagon and you are a winner in my book.

  • More and more fighters are trying to play the counters and not taking charge. I think the judges need to point more on aggression and octagon control. Look at Machida in his last fight with Hendo. He just stood there waiting for Hendo to bring it, waiting on a counter. If Hendo woulda just stood there too, the fight woulda never happened! It's kinda just the way the sport has evolved.

    That's not really accurate. After plodding forward and winging two big punches missing and occasionally getting countered with punches, kicks or knees Dan gave up halfway into the second and he took the whole third off and Machida took the intiative and started picking Dan apart. Machida is not stupid you don't go after a fighter like him in the first round and you definitely don't stay in the pocket and slug it out with him or it will not end well.

    Machida is trying to finish people and there is an art to it the way he does it.

    It's those Guida like bastards that are giving stick n' move strategy a bad wrap.

    I dunno... I got a lot of respect for Machida, but he doesn't BRING the fight. Henderson should have been given more credit for being the one to initiate. If Hendo woulda just stood their waiting for Machida to do something too, then the fight woulda never happened. It woulda just been 2 guys waiting for the other to do something.

    I get your point though there Grind.

    The definition is NOT about just throwing caution to the wind,you ALWAYS have to fight smart.Geesh SMART goes a long way in every day real life,why toss it out the window just because you are fighting.
    If anything,you NEED to be 100x smarter as a fighter because one injury could cost you thousands of dollars or maybe even millions.Look at Gusty,one simple cut and he was not able to fight,he lost a lot of money and the potential to move up the ladder.

    Gina Miesha Kyra ...yes please.

    Machida brings it he's just patient about how he brings it. His main tactic is attacking by drawing and interception and that's a tricky game to play because you'll run right into something if your timing is off but if the opponent doesn't bite he does take the initiative himself and pick them apart with kicks and short punch blitz combinations.

    That's pretty much what happened in the Hendo fight. After a round and a half of Dan plodding forward and missing with haymakers Machida started to intercept with knees and land the occasional kicks and punches when Dan started hesitating and was mentally defeated so he just stood there half way through the second and third and that's when Machida started picking him apart pretty good.

    Gayboys in Undisputed used to fight like that. Whole lot of running men in that game, but, alas, I still miss it.

    If you enter him in a cockfight he would be great at avoiding damage and keeping his little chicken face pretty.
