And aggression is supposedly a criteria for winning sooo he might have won if he had been more aggressive.

Well shogun was clearly the agressor too especially in the later rounds... everything machida landed was a counter to a kick by Shogun...

Machida caught Rua a several more times with blows to the head, sure Rua countered with leg kicks or middle kicks, and Rogan blew his wad over the counters, but Machida was landing......
Are you sure that he was the one countering?
