Re: Shogun vs Machida
Shogun was robbed plain and simple. Rua's gameplan was solid and he poked huge holes in Machida's style. Machida is mostly a counter striker, he runs most of the round then catches people coming in or waits for a lull in the action the throws a flurry.
Rua ring agression, more strikes total, more head strikes, more leg kicks, more power shots. Rua also outstruck Machida nearly 2 to 1. That takes the belt home almost anywhere.
