And not to revisit past debates but it's a fact, at 104 Machida got TIMED, plain and simple, commentary or no commentary. He got punished for nearly every attack he made, most of his shots were blocked and when he did land anything, Rua kept pushing forward being the aggressor, controlling him on the fence. It was obvious who took the most damage in that fight.
Then at 113 Rua switched on Blitzkrieg mode and timed Lyoto again.
LMAO^^ Lyoto was winning that fight until Rua landed and Lyoto didn't. It was a lucky overhand right, if Lyoto had landed his straight left and wouldn't have been so impatient, then the fight outcome would have been different most likely.
