This didn't seem like one of the weaker UFC cards in recent memory to me, coming from someone who does get every show, or at least has in the last 3-4 years at least. It wasn't show of the year, but it wasn't anything shitty either. The main event, when all was said and done, did seem like a true main event to me, though as I couldn't believe Evans got KTFOd like that but it came off like a huge/significant moment all the same as Machida's starpower had to go up a ton by the end of it. Machida was just relentless there. Otherwise, the match itself was what HTQ mentioned it as possible, that being a bit of a chess match of sorts, each guy feeling the other out so much that it was getting a bit ridiculous.
