I stand by my statements and I'm glad to see the results confirmed them
    Page was still countering a lot in the fight dude. Page was going to be more aggressive by default because of how Machida fights.

    Talking about vindication I called how this fight would go for well over a year ago. I said leg kicks wouldn't mean shit - I even talking about Page leaving himself open for Machida's knees and those were the most damaging strikes Machida landed in the fight. Glad Page won, would have bet a lot against him if the odds were better for it.

    I dont know how anyone could give Machida the first round... he landed a couple grazing leg kicks that landed with his toes not his shin. He was controlled against the cage and ate shots on every break. it should have been clearly 2 rounds to 1

    The worst decision ever was Shogun vs Machida I. Those trying to say Machida was robbed in such a close fight are major fanboys to say the least. Close fight, CLOSE FIGHT, ClOsE fIgHt. It was not domination by Machida then taken away so stop your crying.
    i agree 100% i actually got nervous when i realized it was a split decision because i really though rampage won the fight. with current scoring system in place(as in non-pride scoring system) rampage won the 2nd and machida own the third. i think rampage also when the first because machida did next to nothing.

    Still Page had Rashad in a lot more danger in that final round much like Thiago Silva did. I still to this day dont know what stopped either of them from pulling the trigger.

    In a situation like that where you are seconds away from losing the fight you may as well go balls out and try to finish it and neither did. Victory was a sneeze away.

    Rashad knows he can't bang with Page and even went on to admit it in the post fight interview hence his wrestling strategy (likely formulated by Greg Jackson)

    Evans did most of the damage to himself in that fight. If you watch it closely you see he goes for a takedown and brings his own head into Rampage's knee which is what initiated his flurry.

    I would hardly call what Rashad was doing domination. I understand you don't like Rampage but you shouldn't let your emotions cloud your memory.

Now, I wouldn't say Rashad dominated the rest of the fight but he did enough to win.That seems pretty straightforward to me. Maybe it would help if the "writer" actually watched the fight instead of just looking at the results and using his obvious bias to write his article for him.
