I get it in certain situations. DYK was relentless in with takedowns, and I understand why fighters drop their hands to get underhooks or sprawl. But for fuck sake he was throwing a punch here. It is pretty basic stuff to keep your non punching hand up to your face and keep your chin down when punching.
It's all about creating angular momentum. These guys grew up on Wand and once things start hitting the fan they start throwing bombs from the hip.
You can't blame Machida when his opponent was not fighting effectively. Running at someone, and accomplishing nothing, and continuing to do so, is the same as stalling. -411dd
