    well Machida is almost 40 and Moose is 32. I mean, it's quite a gap.

    Let's see how Mousasi looks at 40.

    That’s because fight metric treat every non-jab as being equal.

    Those are supposed to add context to observations, not serve as an absolute measure of what happened.

    ya he did.

    was dumb to accept that fight against Machida. he was just done recovering from injuries and didn't have his timing back yet. the one thing you really want when fighting Machida.

    Machida owned him that bout.

    Guess people forgot he had just recently moved down from lhw to mw and was now starting to diet/cut more weight.

    Mousasi has more fights, and doesn't take peds or grease himself.

    Retired and full of money.

    Mousasi invest all his money in real estate.

    You obviously didn't actually watch that fight, and pulled up statistics from fightmetric. Over half the strikes landed by moose were jabs, and the rest pitter patter shit. Machida fucked him up every time he landed.

    It must be true if Mousasi said it. It's not like he has a documented history of being a sore loser and making excuses for poor perfirmances.

    Machida didn't " fuck him up at all". Yes ,he won the significant strike battle like I've already said over God knows how many posts- hence he won the fight.Machida hit Mousasi with 2 huge blows, both Gegard ate like pancakes and as usual (except last fight) at fights end - Gegard didn't look much like he was in a fight so how badly did he "fuck him up". The fight was a close and technical fight (cheata- also did ALOT of backpedaling).I had it 48-47 or 49-47 at best for machida(1st round was 10-10 or mousasi- nobody did anything so I'll go by strikes being that the entire 5 minutes was on feet).
    Gegard took that fight off acl- tears and 1st fight back at 185 in quite sometime.Its my opinion he takes just 1 or 2 fights first instead of a title implicated fight (which machida got off that win)----- he beats machida (and that's my opinion from watching that fight).We all know now he destroys Lyoto (which isn't saying much) but he would've beaten him in the past few years as well but thats my opinion...

    I'm not completely sure but from my memory , Lyoto looked worse for wear than Gegard did so how " badly did he fuck him up-lol" and how useless were mousasi s " jabs and pitter-patter punches".

    Maybe, you re the one that didn't watch fight or just listened to the biased commentary of fight.

    I feel Lyoto's strikes were all clean while Gegard's looked messy and amatuerish.
