well this fight made me ecstatic for a few reasons:
1) Thiago Silva proved to everyone that he is as overrated as i have been saying he is. thank you Thiago for proving that you will wilt against any top 10 talent in the LHW division.
2) Machida proved that he is capable of being "exciting" to the fans who seem to have ADHD. who was the first finish of the night? Machida. who was the only 1st round finish of the night? Machida. Oh wait, isn't Machida that guy who is boring and runs away from his opponents? i don't know haters, you tell me
3) Dana, Rampage had his title run, let Machida go for the belt. he proved to you that he can be "exciting" and marketable...so let the man get his hard earned title shot already.
