    The karate distance is longer than the normal boxing distance. you dont stay in the pocket, you stay out of it and move in and out. In order to beat it, you have to be in the normal distance, not wait outside the distance.

    Or you need to completely close the distance, clinch and try to take it to the mat.

    What if your dick is soo big that it doesn't matter what distance you are from your opponent, you can wack him in the head anytime you want. What then? What happens then? Do you win?

    Easier said than done when a guy is side kicking you in the chest to maintain that distance.

    Welcome to the Machida era. No one can figure out his unorthodox TMA karate style.

    Sounds like common sense, until you see Johnny Hendricks with no idea what to do.

    it is a wonderful idea, to hit and not get hit. Karate plus great TDD is pretty sweet.
    But sometimes Muay thai trumps karate.

    The skill of the practitioner has something to do with it. Wonderboy is something like 50-0 as a kickboxer with 40 ko's and he seems to be hitting his prime. Also St. Pierre was not dethroned like other champions . He never lost. Even for those who feel that Hendricks should have gotten the win over St. Pierre, St. Pierre did not get smoked where someone took the division to an entire new level.

    Lawler and Hendricks are both wrestlers who have used takedown defense and power striking to becpome champions but they are not world class strikers for MMA like a younger Anderson Silva.

    or I mean to say on a level with Anderson Silva when he was in his striking prime.

    Wonderboy seems more diverse, more active and more accurate than Machida. Plus, he's not the smallest man in his division, unlike Lyoto, so his TDD can hold up much better.
