I don't really care either way since sonnen and jones will crush lyoto anyhow but hopefully it's chae; that does it but i'm quite fond of bones because chael brought the best out of him.
Even watching it live (and despite my bias) I still saw Machida clearly land more good shots than Dan. those leg kicks were terrible and sloppy and whilst some landed, a little bit of apparent bruising on machidas leg is not an indication that dan won the fight.

IF Dan had JUST been throwing those kicks and nothing else the judges may have scored them a little better but the fact he threw them half arsed to set up that rediculously telegraphed overhand right that missed every time, probably didnt help his case.

I laugh when people make comparisons between scoring Aldos leg kicks and Dan Hendersons.
