Machida is the #2 LHW in the world. Crap, he's hardly that, but he doesn't rush in with his chin up and hands down like it's a toughman contest. I like knowing that he's going to brutally KO one-dimensional fighters who try to pull that terrible tactic on him.

If the first round sucked it's because he was fighting somebody who didn't belong in the cage with him, who is naturally hesitant to exchange in a striking battle because Tito Ortiz roasted him and then choked him out. Bader is supposed to be a pressure grappling fighter and he stood there doing absolutely nothing, being scared to get knocked out, which eventually happened to him anyway.
