Are you crazy? How in any way shape or form was Shogun's gameplan for the Machida fight the same gameplan for any of his other fights?
Shogun showed he can be more technical and patient. I don't know about you but I've never seen Shogun fight like that.

But, on the other hand you never see Machida coming in with any other gameplan than to utilize his speed and his stance to jump in and land strikes then move away.
