    I know looks can be deceiving...but is this the case with Machida? The guy looked very strong against Tito and Soko. Sure, he uses good balance, body control, et cetera, but you have to be pretty strong to do what he did against both of those guys. With that said, could he compete w/the strength of Rampage? I keep thinking Rampage would be the hardest test for Machida.

    This thread should probably be in the fight discussion forum.

    Unless you want to discuss elements of his training.

    This has nothing to do with Strength training. Fuck off back to the heavies.
