He is very good technically, and it's enhanced by the fact that he's somehow able to fight as if he was painting the fucking hedge, or whatever.

Downside is that he does seem to have troubles with showing urgency and putting up some more 'intense' attacks.

Machinda submission, round 2
Can't see Machida doing much to Moose on the ground. Other than controlling the position.

Even on the dubs. :/

As long as the Mouse that showed up to "fight" King Moham doesn't show up then his striking will be just like most people here typed. Cautious, controlled, and calculated. I think he needs to watch for the footsweep. Although Mouse has a good upkick he caught Jacare with.

Its all good stuff, and im looking forward to him tested against such a vaunted MMA striker as Lyoto.

One thing im not hearing too much about is Mousasis striking style.

Not much detail there.

And we all know what to expect from Lyoto, even if its sometimes the unexpected itself.

How do you see, and how would you define Mousasis individual striking style?

And what about it, makes you think he'll take Lyoto?
he is so technically sound that he makes what he does look so easy that lesser fans don't even know what it is they're seeing. does that make sense?

he doesn't use exaggerated head movements; he uses rolls and slips and almost never gets hit. he moves forward against everyone, and with an almost Fedor-like calmness merely traps them and starts landing....well, not "at will" but seemingly effortlesslys

alas, much of this technical skill rests on great timing, and fighting Machida after only 2 easy wins in over 2 years is a very bad idea. very bad. after the multiple surgeries and multiple long layoffs he shouldn't have started slower. IMO.

he is - or was - very, very good. i'm just afraid he'll look like Shogun against Coleman (II) instead of Shogun against Machida (I or II) after the surgeries and layoffs, and wish he'd picked an easier first opponent.

also, he'll have to contend with a cage instead of a ring. and as i suggested above, much of his game is walking forward and trapping opps. many have found out the hard way that cutting off an octagon is more difficult than cutting off a ring.

i'm afraid he will not look good. i hope i'm wrong.

The one who wins this fight will be highly regarded as a striker imho, like no. 1 striker in MMA.

That's sadly, pretty good point.

After loooong period of inactivity, interrupted only with spankings of rather outmatched opponents, he may easily be rusty and out of rhythm.
