Slow round for both men.
Who will win in this battle of UFC legends and former champions Lyoto Machida and Vitor Belfort? They were clearly respectful of each other's finishing prowess, which was evident by the finish in the second round. The second he saw a slight opening in Belfort's guard, he landed the crane kick beautifully which spelt the end for Belfort and his career in the UFC.
Machida landing some more kicks. He called out former middleweight champion Michael Bisping, who has been flirting with the idea of retirement himself, following a knockout loss last November.
"Michael Bisping, I'm still waiting for you".
If you still want to skip it and lament the "sad state of fight cards these days", so be it; I'll be at home enjoying a quality night of fights.
