Like Rogan said, you either appreciate Lyoto or you don't... I do and I really enjoyed this fight. His techniques are more varied and trickier than ever, he's fitter than ever, Machida is a joy to watch.
Exchanges were few but they were absolute quality, if it weren't for Hendo's experience and abnormal toughness, you'd have seen Machida score a KO tonight. Via either head or body, those knees to the body were brutal and I was surprised Hendo took that more than twice.
I'd like to see Machida look for more takedowns, like if he gets to the third round and hasn't landed a kill shot, look for a trip. That trip in the first round was beautiful, Hendo is hard to budge has a great base, Lyoto made him fly, followed him down and landed two hard punches from mid air. I think we'd have seen a stoppage from there if not so late in the round.
