Weidman being good in the pocket will matter very little in this fight. When have you ever seen Machida have to fight in the pocket?
i don't know where you got the context that it was "emotional and chest beating"
sounds like you just have nothing to say so you are saying anything right now. machida has fought in the pocket against rampage and phil davis and machida lost both of those times.
for someone like rampage and phil davis, trying to stay in the pocket is extremely exhausting against someone like machida because they are more tense and expend more energy trying to avoid punch and throw them at the same time so they have to reset after throwing flurries and attempt to get in again at another time, which is exhausting
for someone as talented as chris, who is relaxed, it poses huge problem for machida because he can stay in the pocket however long he likes because he is composed enough to do so
