Damn good fight as far as entertainment, but not a whole lot of skill on display.
Pretty much. And for all the 'new skills' that were on display, Maidana still got hit a hell of a lot by a guy who shouldn't give elite fighters any trouble.

Or to put it another way - it took Maidana two more rounds to get the job done than did Alfonso Gomez.
