    Yeah I agree he was speaking of how he would handle weidmans wrestling not necessarily disregarding his striking just the topic was on his wrestling

    Just like Anderson's striking beat Weidman twice, right? I'm rooting for Chris here. Machida's "elusiveness" is way too much like back peddling to me. Tends to make for a boring fight. Sure, he has a few good knockouts to his record but for every fight like the one he has against Munoz or Bader, he's got a fight like the ones against Rampage or Tito.

    I think that was the only significant offense I remember Machida attaining against Rampage the entire fight.

    Not only the examples listed already, but 185 is where Machida should have been all along.

    And this fight?

    Yes, those fights. You happened to show 10 seconds of action in those fights. Now how about you go back and watch the other 14:50 of Machida running backwards at full speed.
