50-45...he's got more facial damage and Mousasi blocked pretty much everything...oh well I agree he won. I hope he gets that next title shot.

I enjoyed that fight, solid performance from both. Not used to seeing either of them bleeding.



I didn't enjoy much of that fight at all.

There's just something I don't like about Machida's style...I wouldn't say he runs away because he flips the switch to offence plenty, but its hard for me to like a guy who spends that much time moving away from the fight.

I can't hate him for it due to the effectiveness, but it is bothersome and causes me not to support him very strongly.

Yeah but I enjoyed Mousasi actually hitting him. In most contact sports you get penalized for that much back peddling. You should not get rewarded for avoiding the fight.

Reason why an official bonus needs to be awarded for every finish on a card. Money is the greatest motivator.



Money for finishing the fight won't change the decision heavy nature of cards.

I think there should be some sort of bonus to both guys in any fight that gets finished.

If you got paid less for winning a decision than for getting knocked out you'd see a lot more guys willing to take chances.



A "you got knocked the fuck out award".
I like it.

I'm a Machida fan but I'll admit I was getting a little irritated at times last night. His style is effective, though. It played out perfectly against Bader. He waited until Bader grew impatient and charged in then countered him. He was doing it against Mousasi last night and how often do we see Mousasi show irritation on his face?
