Thats because the majority of people are insane and lack logic. To people a boring fight =he must be crap fighter. These are usually the same people that believe there is no good fighters outside the ufc

Machida fought smart and used footwork and distance to outpoint a competitor. Shame that a certain famous boxer is accused of running when he does the same thing, only better.

Nope, I never became a fan of Machida even with the knockouts.
But I don't just jump on someone for one great performance or bad performance.
I was a fan of Forrest Griffin even after the Anderson knockout. I'm shocked at how many instant-haters that got him.
