Its just my opinion but I dont want to see a running champion. To me a champion is not a guy with Machidas fighting style.

Too bad he already won the title.

Also how did all that running mark up Hendo's face?

As the champion is "defending" the title, I think it's legitimate for him to fight as he wants to win. It's up to the challenger to bring the fight and take the belt.

That doesn't make the fightiny style of the champ necessarily exciting for the fans, but it's legitimate.

...Who won the 1st round in the Jones/Machida fight?
If you watched it, Machida clearly did. Jones ate a hard body kick and that straight left staggered him a bit in that first round. I just basically said what Rogan said after that 1st round. "We've seen the first look of concern on Jon Jones' face"...

It's funny how people constantly complain about bad judging, yet have no problem with Jones being given the first round, which is one of the worst calls I can remember.

Pointless in the end since Jones won the first fight but Machida has shown he can get in on Jones and he can hit him pretty good.

2 judges score the round for Bones. Bones clearly won that round.

Why does no one bring up that round for bad judging? Because no one gives 2 shits about 1 round of a 5 round fight that went 1.5 rounds. Who cares who was given that round?

Also, I find it laughable that Machida fans hold onto that round as if it is proof that Machida offers the best chance. He hit him what? 2? Maybe 3 times in a round? Many champs start slow. Jones basically gave him that round...a round where no one was hurt at all. Then he proceeded to drop him and choke him unconscious in the 2nd...

That is Machida's game. His fans love that round. Yet 2 judges gave it to Bones. Machida fans are so used to close rounds where they add up the number of feints and touches and want to give it to Machida. Not saying he didn't deserve the round...but even when he "wins" a round....it isn't conclusive. Like the first 2 rounds of the Page fight where his fans swear he won. Same in the Hendo fight. WELL DO MORE AND QUIT RUNNING AWAY. IT ISN'T KARATE POINT FIGHTING. If you actually fight, you may get those rounds.

But BOY! Those 2 punches Machida landed sure are something! Great Job!
