GOAT preview: Lyoto vs Gegard

AndersonIsStillTheGOATAndersonIsStillTheGOAT Soon to be replaced by Gunnar NelsonPosts: 3,113Free


I seriously don't understand how MMA fans can dislike Machida overall. Dude's a great guy, humble, 50% finish ratio under the UFC, landed a hollywood crane kick KO, made Rashad do the stanky leg, and barely cuts weight

I also hated watching him against Dan and Phil but Dan actually did the same against Rashid, and Phil is a boring fighter. It's not all Lyoto's fault.

    He's a technician and people prefer bangers.

    I don't understand the hate for Machida either. But, it doesn't even bother me. Lyoto is a true martial artist in ever sense of the term. He's highly skilled, respectful, and appears to be a very nice guy. Plus, he's given us 5 ridiculous KO's that have pretty much stopped his opponents hearts.

    I sometimes play along with the running comments and such, but yeah he is good.... and is an exciting finisher.

    Its just hard to pull for him when you have guys like Weidman and Mousasi that bring it every second of the fight and are more aggressive. When Machida finished Thiago and Rashad he was fighting more aggressively. Since then he has really become a counter punching defensive fighter.

    I am disappoint

    I'm pretty sure he wasn't counter punching Munoz considering Munoz threw 0 strikes doe

    This is gonna be a great technical fight both highly skilled strikers I like them both but I picked Lyoto coz I think he's gonna take a decision Gegard is really dangerous though so him winning wouldn't surprise me.

    I had to watch 3 and a half minutes of waltzing first. Thankfully I have a PVR so when I woke up from my nap I got to see the replay of Munoz take a kick to the dome like a deer in headlights.

    That was supposed to impress? I seriously been questioning if that fight was fixed considering they were training partners and how it went down. Maybe instead of "training" they were "choreographing". Kinda funny how a partially blocked kick that clips the top of his head put him in dream world and then Machida doesn't even follow up with a single punch.

    Even if I'm reading into it too much, that fight was a joke. Munoz didn't fight like that ever before in his career! He has always been an aggressive wrestler/gnp guy and all of a sudden he is gonna stand and trade with one of the most dangerous knock out artists in the history of the UFC?! And when you consider they train together, don't you think that Munoz would have to be a complete idiot to have that gameplan?!

    That fight completely stinks of fish. I hate to think the UFC actually has some fights fixed but I'm starting to believe that might be the case. Either that or Munoz went full retard for some reason and didn't want to fight his friend.

    Munoz knew he was **** he's a good wrestler but better fighters than him couldn't out wrestle Lyoto and training together he knows how unpredictable Machida can be where as Machida will have got used to his style which isn't tough to figure out or anything knew he hasn't had to deal with already.

    Machida is a GOAT

    Only way Gegard wins is if he rushes Machida and clips him

    You certainly did not. Munoz went full retard for this of that reason, but I'm sure Lyoto would never fix a fight.

    And I didn't even say that was impressive. Just said he wasn't counter striking.

    Lame... I don't buy it.

    If Munoz thought he was screwed why didn't Munoz go full beserk flailing bombs then with the hope of landing his donkey kong punch?

    All he did was circle around for nearly 4 minutes until he ate the first real strike thrown at him. A professional fighter completely fresh should not get KOed from that. It wasn't set up with anything!

    Lets hear some more excuses.....

    You think it's more likely that Lyoto fixed a fight than Munoz being scared to strike first?

    Munoz vs Machida was definitely fixed

    How the **** do you get knocked out by a blocked head kick

    In all honesty I'm not sure what to think? I just know when I see something that doesn't add up.

    Kinda like world trade center building 7. You know what I mean?

    As I said there are two options.... the fight was fixed or Munoz went beyond full retard.

    I'm more worried about the amount of people sleeping on Mousasi.

    I like Machida, but I like Mousasi a lot more. So i'll refer to Moose as the goat and Machida as the Can for this fight.
