Machida is capable of a highlight reel KO no doubt but we are far more likely to see what we did last night and that's a decision victory from him and not a knock out.
The point I am making is that he has highlight reel knocks outs over Thiago Silva, Rashad Evans, Randy Couture and most recently Ryan Bader. You don't get knockouts like that by back peddling.
Had Machida gotten KTFO for banging with Henderson we would be talking about why Machida didn't use his normal style which clearly works. There is absolutely nothing wrong with you liking guys like Manhoef, Leben, and Wandy.
