RE: Chael vs Machida, who you got?
I seem to have a useless talent for calling how Chael fights will go.

My prediction was that Chael would totally bank on being able body lock Machida against the fence, but was going to be totally unprepared for how strong his hips are and how slippery he is with turning side-to-side.

Lo-and-behold. Go to 1:00.

He's the fake-it-till-you-make it rock-star type. A real try-hard wannabe. Completely unlikeable personality paired with tacky style and unpleasant genetics.

In 50 years time, he will be the average American.

I thought this was funny, the most stone faced bullshitter in MMA getting emotional.

RE: Chael vs Machida, who you got?
Whatever Chael does before a fight, I just take it as a lesson of what not to do.

"Training camps are a waste"
"You just keep showing up to the gym everyday like you always have"
"You can't prepare for a guy like that"
"The strategy was to just get in his face"
"All that matters is who wants it more"



The guys who are doing the exact opposite of what Chael does are the ones who are winning fights.

Machida has definitely improved his GNP. it used to be weaker from what I remember. now it's more snappy

RE: Chael vs Machida, who you got?
I did not follow his career closely and my interest in the sport grew less over the years and so I am not too familiar with Chael but caught a bit here and there and can only say that I won't HATE because if what he did was so easy to do then why not do it?

of course if he was a playing a "heel" as a rude and vulgar fellow then it's understandable that fans will be vocal in their opposition.

so did what was his WIN record? Did he give good account of himself by impressively defeating any notable opponents?

In his prime he was a good MMA fighter, he had some great fights with some big names, even when he would lose he would still show some great ability during the fights. But as he grew older and unable to compete at the top level, he redeveloped his focus to being more bravado than substance. I have no problem with that, he's managed to stay relevant by doing so and he's been paid well for many fights that he had no real chance of winning. Ken Shamrock is another fighter who was always good at that in his later years.

I'm just trying to figure this shit out like you are.
