Getting caught is GSP Serra 1 not Shogun Machida 2 thats getting KTFO
I'm facepalming, people actually think GSP was destroying Serra until Serra caught him with a shot from nowhere that magically put GSP out? Serra was fighting just about even in the standup and tagging GSP in the body with punches as they both weaved in and out. Serra was throwing bombs and eventually caught GSP in the back of the head as GSP was ducking.
Just because one fighter lands a more of less clean knockout does not mean anything, nor does the skill difference. GSP was clipped on the back of the head, and then the temple and then knocked the **** out. He was originally clipped in the back of the head.
Lyoto was clipped in the temple region. He went down, still conscious he was hit again in the temple while on the ground if my memory serves me right, similar to GSP Serra.
I do not know what half baked distinction you are attempting to make but it should be more clear than this because I see none.
