Machida weighed in at 198 for a fight at 205 in the UFC. How in the hell is he "fleeing" from his natural weight class? You realize most LightHeavyweights have to cut a substantial amount of weight just to be able to fight at 205 right?

Honestly, Machida might be the closest thing to the perfect fighter.. Maybe GSP more so

Machida is basically MMA's Mayweather.. Style wise
Please. He loses way too much to be compared to Money.

The one negative thing I would have to say about Machida is that he shows the pain on his face when hes hurt, or when someone makes contact. That doesn't mean he is, but his face does change when getting hit. I prefer no emotion.

10 top 10 wins at LHW with recent wins over the #2 and a #5 LHW (at the time) = "fleeing" from his natural weight class. Do you by chance wear a yellow helmet?

Not saying you're wrong ... I've seen Hunt and Lawler eat so many shots i figured that they were like Chuck ... take one to throw a harder one ...
