Split off from the other Shogun thread, I'm thinking back over his UFC career, and his dissection of Machida is one of the most impressive things I've seen. So how did he do that? Did TheStrikingGuy cover this? When I first watched Machida, I guessed that you had to be able to kick to damage him, since Machida fought an extra half-step away and was always on his back foot on top of it. And Shogun did that in the first fight and had great success, but then the second fight he just straight knocked Machida the **** out. After the fight, all I remember him saying was "this time I worked on my hands." It seems like no one else before or since has been able to do that to Lyoto, so it couldn't have been simple, could it? Does anyone have any other observations on this?
