    “The Iceman’s” fourth straight KO loss, this time courtesy of Ortiz, was a result that was forthcoming as soon as the fight commenced. He implemented the exact same approach that he did in his younger years, which evidently was no longer as effective, even during the few fights prior to his retirement in 2010.



    For observers like UFC analyst Joe Rogan, Liddell had just latched on to this particular style of fighting, despite its inefficiency as time went on.




    Based on what he’d seen in that fight, Rogan offered a piece of advice to young fighters today.

    Interestingly, this very morning I re-watched Machida vs. Henderson and Rogan rudely asked The Dragon about boos from the audience(though there weren't that many), implying insult to his elusive tactics. He's always asking shitty questions after a fight but yet & still it's better to hit and not be hit if possible. I think Joe is finally getting it.

    This is the worst advice i have ever heard.

    Rogan sometimes has momentary down syndrome (edited)

    The truth is in the middle. The sport would die if everyone was a Fitch or Woodley. Without casual fans MMA is nothing.

    Cerebral palsy has nothing to do with your mental capacity.
    I'd say he has momentary downs syndrome

    If you translate the brain being paralized in my first language to english, thats what you get though. Even if you are not talking about the actual disease.

    48 year old Chuck loses whatever way he fights.

    There are plenty of fighters who don't fight the way they should.
    Lawler is a wrestler, not that you'd know. Fighting the way he does now has made him more money than lay and pray would have done so Joe is wrong.

    At lower levels in the UFC a $50k bonus is as much as they can get frem 5 fights without getting a bonus so they should go for the bonus.
    At higher levels winning becomes more important as the bonus and losses hurt more than a possible $50k makes up.

    Poignant comments from Rogan and I’d dare say they apply to a lesser degree to Fedor today

    The thing is, these fighters willing to die on their shield happen to be some of my all time favorites:

    Shogun
    Fedor
    Mirko
    Hendo
    Wand
    Reem
    Arlovski

    Too many people will discredit Joe when they don't even have a fraction of the success that he has. Joe is more qualified to be giving out advice to young fighters than anybody here that's for sure because he has actually been one himself

    I also thought about Machida when I read Joe's comment.

    Machida was undefeated cruising through UDs without even getting hit. But he was "boring" to casuals. He had to change to a more aggressive style vs Thiago Silva to get the title shot.

    Khabib had to go 25-0 before he got a title shot - and he got it only after he started running his mouth (which is what Dana and the crowd likes).

    My point is: the sad truth about the UFC (and MMA to an extent) is that you can be the best fighter ever with a flawless record but you ain't getting the belt or the big $$ unless you:

    A) Knock people out in a spectacular way
    or
    B) Talk shit in a spectacular way

    That's why Machida and Khabib had to wait for so long and adapt. That's why Conor became UFC's biggest star. And that's why Mighty Mouse was getting paid peanuts and has now been let go.
