I like to think of Machida as the ego-humbler of the UFC. I’m not counting fights against Randy Couture and Shogun Rua, those guys are already humble and respectful. But he had three straight fights against cocky meatheads (in my opinion): Tito Ortiz, Thiago Silva, and this fight’s opponent, Rashad Evans. This isn’t the most exciting fight ever, Rashad is clearly worried about Lyoto’s explosiveness and his tentative attitude shows it. But the knockout is worth the wait.
