    I just posted this in the other thread but this is probably a better Machida Appreciation thread. Machida does so many subtle things that you don't even really notice til you see it in slow motion.

    [​IMG]

    Here he can tell Rashad is about to commit to throwing his right hand so he quickly attacks before Rashad ever even gets it off, and dodges what was left of Rashads punch.

    [​IMG]

    And here he freakin throws a body kick, while at the same time landing a solid left on Rashads chin, then he lands his right hand on his chin right after while also pushing him off balance with his right forearm to make sure his ass hits the mat. Fucken amazing.

    I was never overly impressed with him, but he looked fantastic. That, and Sherk fought an idiotic fight.

    Serra won the first round, Hughes won the second. The third was close, that should have been scored a draw. I don't think Hughes did enough from the top in the 3rd to be considered dominant and then Serra ended it with a slam and was more threatening from the bottom the majority of the round. Oh well I guess.

    Im not going to say ive always been on the Machida wagon, but i have always been reppin' Edgar for long time now. He looked fantastic- head movement, feints and fakes.....the one time he got taken down got right back up (!) and stuffed 3 more takedowns. This guy HAS to be #1 contender after kenny.
    He has beaten some very good competition.

    I really wish he'd move to 145 though, because there are a lot of guys at 155 that I dont think he has much of a shot at beating just because of his size. He would be SICK at 145.

    I was a big Hughes fan back in the day but the game has past him and he didn't look as good as those days either. He used to have so much explosiveness and brute strength, but he is getting older and it's harder. I think he did well don't get me wrong Serra does have a great ground game and he ate a headbutt that may or may not have caused a lot of damage. He didn't remember getting knocked down, but you have to give Serra credit because he did throw some nice shots after regardless.

    Machida looked fucking spectacular. I've always been a fan of his (well, since I became aware of him, back in his fight vs. Hoger), and I like Rashad Evans as well, so I was hoping for a good fight. Was not disappointed.

    Machida is a fucking destroyer. He's the 205 version of a non-Muay Thai Anderson Silva.

    not to mention Maynard fucking blew edgar out of the water using strength and wrestling. No wonder Sherk shit the bed and went bonkers down the strip in his skibbies.

    Agreed. Same shit with BJ. These idiots have to realize that while you want to make a fight entertaining, you make money by winning, and you win by doing the things you're good at. Sherk shit the bed this fight.

    Seems like Sherk's knees aren't what they used to be. He shot in once and it was :bowdown: but after that his movement was much more laboured.
