I think I got them all... is there any karate expert here who can explain why Machida is so effective with this technique?

 

He tried it on Tito in round 2 but it didn't take... still, he is pretty fearless with it, I especially like the second one on Nakamura

 That foot sweep is standard Shotokan fighting technique.


I am a Shotokan BB and I had a friend and fellow BB that was just genius at it.  His timing was just perfect.

I think every sweep he is punching at the same time. Great timing and balance from Machida. Ortiz is as much to blame for that fight being dull, most the highlights were courtesy of Machida.

Look at his opponents' feet in each of those... he waits until your weight is planted, then pops you.

There is a Krav Maga black belt technique that is basically a more violent version of Judo's de ashi barai which looks alot like Lyotos leg sweep...I have been working this tech for the past year and I love it.Though my timing is nowhere near as good.
That kick he did is what has become known as the Brazilian kick in K-1/Kyokushin circles popularized by Feitosa...it is also popular in some shotokan circles.

Machida is a technical master, just a perfect gameplanner and tactician; people are missing the Boat who state Lyoto is boring.

smoogy - I think this knee would've slept anyone with a normal size cranium

 




Wasn't that a knee to the body?
