UFC 123 Analysis: Quinton Jackson vs. Lyoto Machida—Light Heavyweights, Round 2
There's a stench beginning to come from the main event—it doesn't quite stink yet, but it's on its way.
The second round was even closer than the first, and not in a good way. Neither fighter was able to land anything of much consequence or gain much of an advantage. Again, Rampage was the clear aggressor, but the Dragon didn't land as many strikes this time around the bend. Additionally, Jackson scored with a very slick takedown, though he couldn't turn it into a definitive edge.
Really, the best performance belonged to Joe Rogan, who astutely pointed out that Quinton is essentially just boxing with mixed martial artists despite his ability to do more.
And that's not exactly the stuff of legend.
Call it 10-9 for Rampage just to keep things interesting.
