But it's kinda stupid to stand and bang if you don't have to.. Look at Chuck.. Matt.. hell.. even Rashad...

Get in .. get your shots.. get out... If when you go in.. thnigs are working.. you STAY in..

It's a smart fight.

I'm not denying it's an effective strategy. I think Chuck, Matt, and Rashad are exciting fighters. Chuck goes on the offensive after a "feel out" process, Matt goes for big slams, submissions, and G&Ps, Rashad has great takedowns, standup, slams, and G&Ps while Lyoto just runs the whole fight.

I'm not denying Lyoto's talent. He's an excellent karate practitioner, but karate as a defensive style only is incredibly boring for this sport.
