Default "He's kind of boring"--Rampage on Machida

http://urdirt.com/2009/02/24/pot-sho...ge-on-machida/

“Lyoto is a weird fighter,” Jackson said. “He’s kind of boring. I think that style works for him, the way he makes people run after him. I mean, he’s good, he’s undefeated, but he’s boring. If I was the promoter of a show I wouldn’t have guys like that fighting on my show.”

That's what fear sounds like.

Rampage is right though, when it all boils down to it.

If Machida were 14-0 with 14 KOs, Dana White would be all over his jock, but that's not the case because he's an unorthodox fighter.

Rampage is conducting a little damage control. I'm sure he reads/hears stuff regarding Machida being more deserving of a title shot than he, so he's trying to downplay it.

Just my two lincolns.

Later.

Since it works for him I'd say he's earned his spot! Thankfully it ain't Rampage's call!

Rampage is right. He wins. His method is effective. Except for his last fight, he's been boring.

I actually find his style pretty exciting to watch. He makes good fighters look careless. I think he's fully transitioned into the octagon and I think we're going to see more of his fights looking like the Silva fight.

I agree, it was nice to see him show some offense instead of running. If he were to fight like that always, I'd be all for it.

I thought it was funny the way the ref acted after the horn sounded. He didn't even know that Thiago Silva was out.

Later.
