i was expecting more from Rashad but it was evident that with superior take down defence from Lyoto it was not going to be easy for Sugar. When Rashad got in close ….Man, Lyoto has fast hands, dear Lord!

So cool to see an old school Karate guy being able to defend and change up his angle of attack to throw off his opponent.

Sugar is a great wrestler too but the moment he tried to come in close it was a flurry of fists.

Good fight and great win for Lyoto.

The fight was great, but after seeing the SPIDER emulate Lyoto’s stance in a previous video. I couldn’t stop thinking and laughing at the SPIDER’s realistic emulation. I don’t think both would bang as they’re both part of la casa preta; it would be a great fight. Rampage doesn’t stand a chance. Rogan’s correct about this being the era of Lyoto.

Machida has finally won me over – it is funny that the only person who has come close to beating him was a lightweight in BJ Penn.

Amazing fight, great finish, although I honestly think Rampage will be more of a test because of his strength. Rashad should have gone to GNP straight away, I think it was arrogant to try to stand with him for as long as he did. Rampage uses his wrestling, and his strength, and a good gameplan it will make for an interesting fight.

Rashad was scared, on his headphones all day -not centered within, like Machida was. Machida’s power came from within, he didn’t need no stinking headphones. Machida is another level of fighter. He will demolish Rampage and anyone else. He has the ninja chi power and the menral/spiritual. Incredible performance!

Buawahahahahaha! Good game plan, have Evans the wrestler strike just because he ko’d old Chuck with his looping one dimentional dated style. I want Machida to gain a few pounds but still weigh under 210 to destroy Lesnar now. The only half way challenging and interesting fight for the dragon would be Shogun though. Let Evans slug it out with Crack head Jackson on the under card

mygif
ares Says, in 5-24-2009 at 04:50:30 from 24.86.146.124    

1. amazing distance control from machida. lyoto was always out of range for evans but the converse was not always true.

2. exceptional accuracy from machida. not only he is very fast (evans has fast hands too) he hardly ever misses.

next title fight in the category should be machida-jackson.
machida seems favourite now.

if a.silva wins his fight against griffin, he should convince himself that he should compete at lw from now on.
machida-a.silva would have 2 of the greatest mma fighters in the octagon.

To all the non believers… to all those who were on Rashad’s jock and thought he was too powerful or too quick for Lyoto… remember this… never under estimate the force of the dragon. This is the prime example between a TRUE martial artist, and a wrestler who can strike… you do the math.

i dont think that will ever happen, cuz u see machida and a. silva are training partners and maybe friends. Silva once said that he does not want to fight a fellow brazilian (a friend to be exact) but as for Wandy and A. Silva there is a chance since the 2 of them had part ways.

Thanks bunches, Bruno.

So satisfying to see Rashad go out. I almost felt bad afterward, but then I remember the Chuck “incident.”

Rampage seems a little too one dimensional to beat Machida, but all it takes is one punch, and we don’t know how much of a chin Machida has. The only person that I can think of that may be able to put Machida in danger with their striking would be Shogun, but I’m not sure he’d be able to pull it off either.

KOB Says, in 5-24-2009 at 06:18:52 from 71.224.163.168    

Sherdog had Machida ranked 4th in the division before this fight? Man, do they have to eat crow, those know nothings. Who thought Machida wouldn’t win? This is what happens when a great striker becomes a bjj black belt. If you stand back like Evans did you can’t beat this guy. You have to close the distance, move to your left, make him miss or hit him hard with straight right hands. A tall order for anyone.

megamania5000 Says, in 5-24-2009 at 06:35:19 from 208.107.67.96    

Tonight Machida was to Evans as what Silva was to Franklin. And Evans will have just as much luck in a ramatch with Machida as Franklin had against Silva when they had a rematch.
This is another example of how much the fight game is evolving. At one time Liddel was unbeatable, but now the average fighter can deal with him. At one time Hughes was unbeatable. But now his fight game is obsolete. Until now, Evans fight game kept him at the top. Now someone found holes in that. Three years from now Matchida’s game will be defeated by another fighter of an even higher level.
The talent, timing, speed, and power of these guys is getting phenomenal. This outcome was no fluke. This is indeed going to be the Matchida era. For now. Whoever beats him when that time comes will have to be superhuman…and he probably will be. These fighters are getting this s*** to an art!!

I feel bad for Rashad. He showed a lot of heart in there. He tried to fight out of it. I can’t for the life of me figure out why he didn’t try to wrestle Machida.

Machida is amazing. What a treat to watch. Such incredible striking, and his chin isn’t bad either. When he came in on Rashad with that flurry earlier in the fight Evans landed a couple hard ones and Machida shook ‘em off pretty well.

Once again Brazilian fighters defeat strong, and muscular wrestler base fighters. Machida is a a complete Martial Artist, he is a karate master, black belt in bjj, he has trained judo and sumo. Rashad couldn not take him down becaus Lyoto had been training with judo hw gold medalist.

Only person I see with a chance of beating Machida is Shogun if he returns to form (which it seems he just might do) Rampage has a punchers chance at best. And for the guy who mentioned his (rampages) great chin, it’s not like he hasn’t been knocked out before

I will give Rashad credit as a great fighter because he actually landed a couple punches…

But a couple of punches will not stop the dragon.

It is amazing how much Lyoto improves each and every match. While some call his elusiveness boring, few can say that now. He actually made Rashad look like a rookie fighting one of the coaches on TUF.

It appears that all the nipple tweaking in the world was not enough to counter about 6 punches directly to the chin:)

“One strike one knockout”…that is what Shotokan is all about…and Machida showed it in action..
Now, many people will come back to their senses and will give Shotokan Karate the respect it deserves. Machida’s stance, striking, moves is all part of Shotokan Karate’s practices. His father was a 3rd dan Shotokan Karate when he arrived in Brazil long time ago……..Just go and ask Lyoto himself.

Well Machida is for real without a doubt. He has a very good chance against Rampage as I can see Rampage getting frustrated and rushing in when things don’t go his way. Machida could be champ for a while, but my money’s on a healthy old school Shogun taking the belt from him. That has all the makings of a classic, I hope it becomes a reality soon.

Congratulations to Machida he definitely deserves where he is.

I hate so much Evans that i was shacking of rage just imagining him doing a lucky punch again (like on other fights). He is a shame for the MMA sports, he do not know how to behave in the octagon, he shows lack of respect to his oponents… real hate the man…. THANK YOU LYOTO, YOU ARE THE MAN (i even cry of happiness, when EVANS was knocked out). NOW PLZ FRANK MIR broke the arm of that ape LASNAR se we can clean MMA from retards.

As I said, “Machida is going to hand Evans his ass.” He’s going to beat Rampage too, just as easily.

He is a true Master. Discipline and focus. Two things many people in MMA lack. He has it. So does A. Silva. Also Fedor.

With Machidas style of leaning back with his waist forward it would make the most sense to fire straight kicks to the body in the waist area. I’m surprised no fighters have tried this. This will keep him at bay and could even cause some major damage. I guess it is easier said than done.

good win for machida, i thought rashad would win, he just wasn’t agressive enough. i esimated machida had the height and reach advantage, but i didn’t think evans would just stay on the outside and get picked apart like that seeing he has great wrestling skills he only tried to utilize when he got desperate. and its also good to see you racists bring your hoods out of the closets referring to the man as an ape or ghetto, i see the real reason you didn’t like him, just be honest from the gate. and try calling rashad that to his face cowards, at least he has the balls to step in the cage. last but not least machida still hasn’t been really hit, and out of shogun or rampage he will. only then will we know if he can take it as well as he gives.

Good fight. I am a fan of Machida and his unorthodox style brings something new to the octagon. I’m glad that he won the title. However, I was much more so looking forward to a fight between Rashad Evans and Quinton Jackson. That would have been incredible. I think that one is a much better match up stylistically.

HallStyle Says, in 5-24-2009 at 16:33:48 from 98.105.57.119    

It seems like everyone falls into the trap of trying to make Machida Attack. Really do really want THAT GUY TO ATTACK? Fighters need to go 100% HARD AT Machida and I haven’t seen anyone do that. They get confused by his style instead of just doing what they are good at. Rashad didn’t attempt a shot once. Rashad never got his hands really going. How the hell is he going to win if he doesn’t fight with all he got?

I have been to several clubs in Toronto “not Karate, and some Karate but not Shotokan”. In most of these places when I was telling them of my Shotokan Training, I felt the disrespect of most of these people for Shotokan Style until we had Kumite. It was only when I slapped their face with Mawashi-Geri Jodan that these people came back to their senses and started to remember Shotokan for the rest of their lives. This happened over and over and over….

Still there are people out there who don’t want to see the light…but I guess now with Lyoto…they will be reminded of Shotokan’s striking speed, timing, and power once every few months….
Go Machida go…Karate is back………

Didn’t read any of the posts except for a few at the top, but i watched the fight last night and was completely taken by surprise. I felt the fight would be fairly evenly matched and could go either way. Lyoto made a statement last night and now is solidified as the guy to beat at 205. The guy just does whatever the hell he wants in all his fights. He is so focused and is always able to fight his fight, it also helps that last night he took his game to a whole new level, and now i see what he was talking about with his new found striking speed with his plyometric training.

It doesn’t matter how many times or in which way Machida wins a fight, he will always be a boring fighter. There isn’t a card in which the other fighter got booed because of Machida’s boring-ass style. I think until now, he has been on a lucky strike. You could clearly see since the beginning Rashad was afraid to exchange or shoot, idiot. Rashad had the power and speed to take Machida down and keep him there while feeding him some fist, but hey, he was mentally done b/c of all the media giving Machida credit. So, stop being such Machida’s nut huggers because he won’t get lucky against Rampage. Machida’s face or chin has not been tested yet, and too bad it’s going to be tested by Quinton Rampage Jackson, no doubt, he aint afraid like the previous opponents. I can’t see Machida taking a punch combination and still be standing, so he better train more on his elusiveness (p****) War Rampage !! Karate has been DEAD for decades. Go film a movie Machida, take your boring ass style somewhere else !!

While I love Jackson, I think he’ll have a tough fight ahead of his with this machida guy. If anything, he drinks his own urine ffs. But before that, I’d love to see rashad fighting jackson and getting knocked the F*** out.

It was a great finish and I was one who thought that Machida was a great fighter, but not exciting. I guess things have changed. I have to say that some use “like a bitch” and “Rashad” in the same sentence. Bitch and any fighter that steps into the ring doesn’t belong in the same sentence. Rashad got beaten finally, but he wont be the last to fall to Machida. Rashad had been underestimated ever since the begining in the ufc even by Dana himself and actually got to hold the title for a short time. Nothing bitch like about that at all.

machida won and he’s the champ. there’s nothing that can be said to change that fact. anyone who says that it was luck that got him this far is obviously retarded beyond all reason and is way too bitter to accept that they’re bias was totally off. i understand if you don’t like his “p****” style or karate in general or maybe you got beat up by some 6 year old kid who had a yellow belt, i don’t know. but seriously, give respect where its due and don’t be crusty old douche.

Ok Rampage isn’t going to win either, especially if he tries to go at him from the get go. It would probably be the quickest fight of Rampage’s career, and not in Rampage’s favor either. Rashad wouldn’t have any more luck if he would’ve tried to take machida down, cause machida has too good of a takedown defense. I got to give Rashad credit for trying something different but you can’t beat a man at his own game. Rashad got two jabs and leg kick in the entire fight, which is a lot more than what most people get on him, I was just surprised to see that Machida was playing more as the aggressor this fight. I don’t think Shogun could really do much to hinder Machida either. That belts is in the same postion as the middleweight belt.

Do you see like when he goes to punch he like swirves right to left, or left to right its so distracting. Like Rogan said its unorthodox rashad saw a ghost and very fast and elusive ghost. Machida is a Ninja son, i just hope he doesn’t get really close to rampage when he thinks he’s hurt, but i believe Machida is disciplined enough to not chance it.

JJ Says, in 5-25-2009 at 05:34:25 from 83.233.210.28    

As long as Machida´s apponents stays outside the “short-reach” of Machida, his style will give him a great advantage. The apponent must get inside much closer, and from nearly clinch-rech strike with uppercuts and elbows. If Rampage does this, he will win.

Lyoto is incrediblily agile. I just don’t see anyone that could hit the guy. He keeps his distance and checks with his left kick. He has the ability pounce with his quick first step. He looks flat footed but has incredible foot work. Machida is able to keeps his body straight while stepping out of opponent’s reach. That’s why is counter pounches are so deadly. Unbelievable! With the level competition in today’s UFC, I don’t think even Anderson Silva can match up to the guy. His style has been called unorthadox, but sure it’s entertaining to watch. He is going to be on top for a long long time

Shogun is going to take Machida out. Only if he shows up with some balls. Machida wins via paralizyation by analyization. If Shogun can grow some balls and attack the man head on I can see Machida wilting under the intense attack of Shogun. Theres only perfect offense, no such thing as perfect defense. You young niggas have been warned.

Great to see a skilled, humble, true Martial Artist win this fight.

Notice how the best fighters are the ones who constantly strive to improve and diversify their skills, and who do NOT have a ego. Anderson, GSP, Fedor, Couture( when he fought).

Rashad is just simply bad for the sport, and the likes of him who are simply here to win, trash talk, showboat, and disrespect other fighters. He is way too one-dimensional, as is Rampage. Rashad has never had to take on a skilled fighter ( Griffen is a great guy, but a bit over-rated, and liddell is out of his prime ).

As for all the mma / non-mma fans who constantly critisized Machida’s style, all I have to say is this is a not a blood-sport. These are skilled martial artists who are trying to win, have a strategy and without trying to get seriously injured.

Machida definately deserves this win and the title.

The Spider vs The Dragon won’t be occurring if we only consider things actually said by either fighter or their training / mngmt. Its been said they are good friends and train together. Silva feels the LHW belt is properly Machida’s. It is definitely the most talked about fight that will never happen.

That said, some quick thoughts:
Machida kicks > A Silva kicks
Machida strikes < A Silva strikes
Machida clinch < A Silva Clinch
Machida takedown D = A Silva takedown D
…and who knows about the ground game. Never seen Machida there but he has a black belt in bjj same as Silva, tho Silva has shown, on rare occasions, what he can do.

They are both incredibly fast, strong, inventive, and analytical fighters. Both know how to avoid dmg (Machida has a slight edge here), find openings, change rhythms (Silva edge), and explode when necessary to a sustained barrage of pinpoint strikes to end fights. Silva is one of the only fighters I can think of that could SUCCESSFULLY close the gap to machida then punish him with elbows and knees. On the other hand, Machida actually has strong sumo and judo training, so Silva would have a fairly difficult time staying in the clinch and close. I don’t think either fighter has a strong advantage over the other in the end, and neither my analysis nor intuition is giving me any clear cut winner. Might as well flip a coin.

Interesting points Cocy, one thing though is:
Machida takedown D > A Silva takedown D
Silva’s been taken down in 3 or 4 of his UFC fights, Machida 0 (including shrugging off at least 6 attempts from a bigger Tito). Both are bjj black belts, Silva uses his primarily defensively (as he has been on his back a few times) and does have a couple submission wins set up by strikes. Machida has a submission over Soko but we’ve never seen him off his back.

And I hear everyone raving about that matchup, am I the only one who thinks it would be horrible? Even if their friendship gets put aside, they’re both highly skilled on their feet, somewhat counterstrikers that look to exploit weaknesses in their opponent. Due to their skill level I can’t see either being able to sustain an attack, they’ll kind of cancel each other out. There would be a lot of booing I bet.

Lyoto deserves all the credit for the win no doubt but some of you guys are straight up Rashad haters. They both have very simalar styles but when Rashad was winning despite all the hate against him over the past few years some of you could give him no credit. Now that Lyoto has beaten him with a similar style of fighting all of the sudden its a relevant way to fight. All of you who have said that Rashad was just running and afriad and couldnt fight are know band wagoning on Lyoto who is doing the same thing Rashad was doing to win all of these years. Lets separate the real warriors and fans from the fanboys and haters. Take you emotional issues and predjudice somewhere else and let the real martial discuss the issues.

i have read all the comments, and i am happy that Lyoto put rashad in his place. but whoever thinks that Machida would whoop up on Fedor is absolutely smoking crack. i agree that silva-machida would be awesome, but they are managed by the same guy, and have said they would never fight. i am still cracking up that people think fedor would get owned..lol

Fedor needs to stay at heavy weight.

Lyoto is what Chuck Liddell always dreamt to be, a true karateka kicking ass with absolute speed, timing, precision, technique and power.
Poor Rashad couldn’t do anything but weight for “lights out.”
Rampage is a monster, but he is not in the same level as Machida. Actually, no one is.

Hey man I am so happy that Machida put Rashad (the runner)in his place. I actually think that this was an exellent fight but all of the sudden there are guys that where on the side of Rashad Evans and now are on the side of Lyoto Machida. So I personally think that´s not good. What I can see is that Machida has an exellent future defending his UFC title because he knows how to defend himself and has an extremely power in both of his hands. He is a striker too. So hopefully he is going to give us fans memorable moments in his UFC future fights. Greetings all the way from Mexico. GUS.

I agree with megamania5000 the level of mma is getting developed faster and faster, i love rampage the dude is cool as hell but i don’t think he has the skills or has developed just yet to that level. as far as rampage getting knock out with a punch. ha ha ha ha good luck. to take rampage down you need multiple kicks and knees. not punches.

if rampage has a chance at this he should play it save and not try to please the crowed he should keep machida guessing the hall way and play it like GSP punch, punch, kick, and take down.. rampage has the power he just need to take him down, we all know that he doesn’t have the speed so he has to keep machida guessing every time machida decides to throw a kick. If rampage want to stand their like he did with his other fights i think his going to loose by decision because rampage is hard to knock down.

i seen a couple of fights were machida gets a bit dazed with a punch so im guessing he doesn’t have the strongest chin, the hard part is timing it and making him come to you and not letting him counter strike.

don’t get me wrong machida is the man but i tend to go for the under dog all the time it just makes it more interesting thats how i got my winnings :D thanks machida for making me some quick cash.

i like how rogan says at the end, his flurry was better then chucks. but i think he forgot about the ortiz.. his face was EFFEd up. and he had 90% accuracy over the 16 punches he threw for that ko.. hes over the hill now. but lyoto’s striking isint par with chukks in his prime nor was rashads. he was just out of his prime for his last couple of fights and his career is over.

anyone who says anderson silva is boring has Alzheimers disease or something. yes he’s had 1 oe 2 boring fights lately, but they weren’t his fault. all of his fights before that were some of the most exciting in the UFC.

as for lyoto. i do find him boring. I don’t think he’ll make it past jackson, griffin, or shogun

Love all the idiots who say Machida is boring blah blah blah… This is Mixed MARTIAL ARTS. With the emphasis on MARTIAL ARTS! Sorry if he doesn’t charge in with reckless abandon and starts throwing wild and stupid punches like some dumb ass street brawler to entertain you mindless morons who think this type of brawling is an actual sport. I’m amazed how many jackasses deride Machida’s masterful technique and years of training. Maybe Machida’s long reign as the LHW champ will flush out the casual dipshit fan and get them to go back and watch WWE.

Rashad “Facade” Evans, you got your 15 minutes of fame and now its over. For those that call Lyoto boring, hop in the ring with him so we can all have a laugh at your expense or go back to watching your ECW on the SciFi Channel. Go hide under your shrooms, Smurfs. For those of you like myself that enjoy a skillful fighter, we’ve got at least 4 more great fights out of him.

You read it.

A lot of people are saying that Machidas style is unorthodox. The truth is, his style is very orthodox to Karate fighters.

Every martial art has something to offer, and hopefully a lot of MMA fighters who dont believe this, will change there thoughts. Well done Machida

*sigh* if only lyoto was aiming to get middleweight belt. THAT would be the most desiring fight i’d LOVE to see. Lyoto Machida Vs Anderson Silva. I new lyoto would win this fight. He rarely misses a hit and was way more elusive than evans.

As a long-time wrestler evolving into a martial artist it is very refreshing to see the transition from the ground and pound to dominant elusive martial artistry. Without question Machida will hold on to that title with little competition for a long time. In a sport full of lead pipes, Machida is a scalpel. Silva vs. Machida will be a great match, and is already rumored in the works, but remember Anderson Silva is Lyoto Machida’s friend and training partner, and he has already agreed to fight him, but not challenge him for his title, which he previously said was already rightfully Machida’s belt. Great time for MMA and old school discipline karate!
