No one bitches about the Bader fight or the Munoz fight.

Yeah...Machida didn't really have another fight he could have fought. Hard to justify more aggression against a dangerous striker when he's eaten monster shots and keeps plodding forward.

sucks for you...you missed some amazing stuff. not to mention the beautiful sweep by Mousasi. funnily enough, both guys ended up bleeding...i think you would have at least enjoyed that part of it:

I was being tongue in cheek, but thanks for the gifs

Actually I had to stop watching for other reasons, and had planned to watch it later.

That beard on Moose. It sadly he couldn't stop machida. Can't blame him for not being overly aggressive either, but that's what's tricky about Machida, he's a master at scoring points on your and gangrenous when you over commit.

Mousasi is tough but Machida was simple faster.

It was a great fight really. If Mouse ate 4 kicks to the head 2 would have knocked others out could. If that happened the fight would have been a UFC success. Instead we saw it go the distance with some good action. Just not great like we have gotten spoiled on for the last few events. Take in the reality and remember those badass fight from last year were freak happings they can't all be like that.

I was furious watching that fight. I predicted 50% what would happen. 1. Mousasi would pressure Machida against the cage with jab and lowkicks (checked). 2. Mousasi would cut him of as Machida would cirlce away from the cage with a low/middle kick (fail). I was screaming watching the fight go to Machida's way as if Gegard had no strategy to fight the elusive opponent, like he was just gonna go in and beat him up just by being a better striker. Well reality check, Shogun who is not the half a striker Gegard is arguably beat the Dragon two times and in their second match managed to KTFO him in two minutes just by having a superior strategy. And all his confidence and looking past Machida where the hell was it based on?!? That made me even more angry, his was coming of a surgery 10 month lay off in a division he hadnt fought for 5 years and the guy is looking already at being a champion. This is a huge letdown for all of us who have been following him for a very long time, and expect a lot more from him having in mind his talent and skill, i really hope that he takes lessons from this and starts doing the proper things in his career to live up to his potential, and make us all rewarded for being behind him all these years...
