Machida's 'boring' fights where the ones where he was not the agressor, the ones where his opponents were actually in the fight. But you're right obviously Rampage who is slower than Rashad should try to sit back and counter the much much faster fighter. Good call.
Rashad gave up. He had nothing for Lyoto and started talking trash in the middle of getting punched in the face. I don't really know what Rashad was doing but it was not counter punching.
Thiago Silva was KO'd at 0:00 in the first round and did pretty much nothing to Machida as well.
Rampage should get inside where he is the more powerful fighter and take Machida to the ground. It won't happen because Page is an idiot but the next best thing he can do is counter punch since that is the type of fighter he has always been, and quite successful at that. Unless you advocate a fighter going against everything he has done for the past 5 years I say Page should counter punch this fight, then find a new camp.
