All in all it was a tough fight for both guys. Machida did his thing and none of us should be surprised by that. It might not be the most crowd pleasing style but I enjoyed it for the chess match that it was. I'm a Machida fan so that doesn't hurt either.
The chess match was good until they both revealed all their moves. Then when neither one was having any real success Hendo backed off, then the exchanges became even less frequent.
