Despite coming up short in his bid to reclaim the UFC Light-Heavyweight crown, former champion Lyoto Machida has a lot to be proud of looking back on last night's performance.
He also has a lot to work on, too.
Taking on current champion Jon Jones at UFC 140 in Toronto, Machida looked like he was doing fine in the first round, able to land a lot of punches on Jones. However, in the second round, Jones was able to catch Machida with a straight left before securing a standing guillotine choke.
Going forward, Machida can learn a lot from this bout before he tries to make another title run.
Here are five things Machida can take away from last night's fight.
