Machida has beat Shogun.

Not taking anything away from Dan, great fight but Shogun in terms of technical ability is vastly superior than him but he brawled and then he got mauled until Dan gassed, Fedor got careless going for the kill and Hendo snuck in with an H-bomb. The chances of Machida getting careless are far less and that makes this a more difficult fight for Dan because Machida won't play into his hands unless Machida believes he can finish him, Dan would probably be wise to fake being rocked and try to lure him in and take advantage because if Machida fights smart he should cruise.
