Part of why I think the Machida fight is the biggest redemption is that for the most part, many people despite the outcome of the fights, did not believe Griffin and Coleman were better then Shogun. Machida though, was elite enough to be at that level. Stamping that victory, promotional trinket aside, was very significant because in the later part of that decade, Machida established himself as being much better overall then those other two.
