Machida hit Greco with 5-6 good counter straight lefts and scored a takedown in the first round, Greco only landed 2-3 weak leg kicks and held him against the ropes for a little while. Are you Joe Rogan??

Pretty good fight. Probably the only fight in which Machida has ever shot for a double-leg TD, (although you could argue he was shooting against Jones after he got rocked).

I think this was the fight where Lyoto realized his distancing for counter punches needed to be perfected. Sam hit him with some extremely hard inside leg-kicks, even dropping Lyoto to a knee with one or two. He was attempting to counter those kicks with punches, but his distancing was just out of range to be effective. After this fight, you hardly ever see Lyoto try to counter inside leg kicks, only avoid them. Instead, he opts to counter only body kicks which puts his opponents in distance for a solid counter to land. To be able to distinguish between the two, in-fight, takes a mastery of counter-striking.

Machida gameplan was always bodylock takedown and top control during his early career.
we always hear that he is a karate and sumo fighter, but he trained catch wrestling in Japan under Inoki.

Machida was connecting and landing on him pretty flush multiple times. It was a close fight but I had Machida winning the first 2 rounds. Greco was loading up but really swinging at air like Rampage.
