Highlight for me was Machida's foot sweep takedown, pulling that off in a fight situation against a top level Greco Roman wrestler like Hendo = impressive.
I was flipping my shit when he landed that sweep!!!

I dug Hendo's aggression in the first, but Machida landed the better shots. In the second, Machida was on fire. The third was obviously Henderson.

The fight wasn't thrilling by any stretch of the imagination, but it definitely had some awesome moments ala Machida's counters -- especially those knees!

Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.
