I was actually pissed Machida didn't take it down again after the first round. He obviously could have taken it down again, removed the threat of the big right hand and made a dominant showing.
That's also what I remembered; glad I'm not losing it.

Still seems fairly equal to me in terms of scoring.

And that's the problem: subjective scoring. Especially in a fight where not a whole lot happened.

I wouldn't have complained had the decision gone the other way, just as I didn't see any travesty in the Rampage/Machida decision. There was more than enough inactivity an inconclusive content for pretty much any decision to be unsurprising.

I was hoping (as I posted in an earlier thread) that we had seen the last of that Machida. Maybe we'll see the Machida who emerged post-Rampage next time around.

I wrongly wrote Machida took Hendo down on the third. I ment on the first and regardless what it was officially scored, that was the only take down planned and executed in the fight, far away from the scramble they got on the third where Hendo luckly ended up on top.

Being on top for an extended time is comparable to a take down with little time on top. They are going to be scored similar by the judges. It's just splitting hairs IMO.

Precisely OU. With so little action, that fight was all about splitting hairs, indeed.

EDIT: Oh, I miss Pride yellow cards so much.

Whoever thinks Hendo took Machida down in the third must be blind.

Machida landed a laser like shot to Hendo's face, followed by an elbow, when he took him down. The first shot was the cleanest and biggest shot of the whole of the first round I think. Certainly, from what I could work out, it was the laser like strike that caused Hendo to swell up under his right eye. Reminded me of the punch that knocked out Thiago Silva. The only difference was probably a small combination of Hendo having an iron jaw, it catching him higher up in the face and it not being quite as powerful a strike, but the difference was very small.

Interesting that it occurred at basically the same time as it did in the Thiago SIlva fight.

I don't think Hendo took Machida down. When I re-watched it, it looked like Machida slipped and Hendo simply landed on top of him. It wasn't particularly obvious through his thick Brazilian accent, but Machida said so himself in the post fight interview.

Hendo had him down for a lot longer, but actually did far less damage than in the 3 seconds that Machida had Hendo down for. Numerically, he got away multiple pitter patter shots to Machida's body initially, but did nothing after that.

If you look at the stats, Hendo's body strikes count is padded by those shots.

Having re-watched the fight a couple of times now, the closest round to me was the first, until Machida got the trip and landed those two bigger strikes.

The second was the easiest to call. Machida was well ahead, until Hendo closed it slightly with a late flurry, but it was nowhere near enough.
