    Yes like Chad Mendes on short notice, the guy everyone agreed at the time was the worst match up for him and would beat him.

    How is slipping punches prone to getting a knee or a kick? If anything, making your opponent miss leads him open for a well placed strike.

    It only sacrifices your defense if you're a complete dumbass.

    Older fighter with deteriorating reflexes that finally got caught after 38 fights? Very weak example

    No, its more of a physics thing. Swaying your head side to side causes the associated leg to support the weight causing the fighter to be vulnerable to leg kicks

    Now this is pod racing!!!
    Makes it quite easy to time your opponent, throw a throwaway punch, and time a knee or kick. Better to guard with a high card and deflect shots then dip low.

    leg kicks are overrated. keep your hands up and utilize head movement to avoid kicks. simple

    You can slip without overexerting yourself. People seem to have a preconceived notion that you have to over exaggerate head movement for it to work.

    Anderson Silva was nowhere near as good at it as Aldo, for instance. Silva's looked spectacular because he had his hands at his waist and his feet completely planted sometimes, or leaned back Ali-style. But he took plenty of shots.

    Spoken like someone who has never a) dealt with low kicks or b) trained/fought bums who can't throw a low kick.
