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.
Shogun pressures at the same rate...he was a little more cautious but his attacks were the same and came from the same angles as they always have. He has been more cautious in each of his fights in the UFC.

I think you are minimizing Machida's methods too BTW
