    So... does this further fuel the Karate vs Muay Thai debate that has been going on here... or just an obviously better fighter facing a lesser one?

    Let's not start another style vs. style argument. It's more about the actual fighter and his level of training (and coaches) + how he performs on the day than it is the martial arts he trains in. I thought everybody knew that by now...

    1 fighter getting caught by a punch in a fight doesn't make the martial arts he trains less effective. Otherwise what would you say about Karate when Machida got punch KO'd by Shogun?

    Of course, I didn't mean a "Karate > MT" argument. In the previous pages we've discussed MT vs Karate tactics (like in this post), though the counter-argument was that top level MT can be just as elusive and counter-based as Machida's / Wonderboy's / Nelson's Karate.
