First Bader was like "I'm gonna hit ya!" but then Glover was all "How about I hit you back!" and I was like "Dayyyyyyyyyum!".

I find this post amusing.
I think people were caught up in the fact that Machida was actually competitive with Jones in the first round while many were expecting him to get steamrolled. At that point, Machida was really the first guy to show any kind of resistance to Jones (until the second round) but I wouldn't quite say Machida "won the round".
And that's my point it wasn't a round that showed us some aspect of Jones's game that fighters can take advantage of, it was just them not engaging, because neither fighter DID anything that damaged the opponent. Machida wasn't dominating him he didn't do any damage to Jones in that round.
