Come to think of it I can't remember a better title fight other than maybe Silva-Sonnen...just for the way it ended.
No, but I put Maynard Edage in the same boat as Shogun Machida I. It was a great fight while it was happening and was really exciting, but after the fact on a second watch it just isn't the same. It's still a good fight, but not as exciting at all. A couple big events, Frankie getting rocked, the slam in the second, same as The couple flurries in Machida Shogun. It wasn't a bad fight, but after the second it was a lot of circle and jab and circle with a couple shots.
