    I feel shogun should have won it but not by a great deal. It was a close fight but i think shogun was the better fighter on the day.

    Here's what Anderson Silva had to say:

    Anderson Silva was closely following the fight between Lyoto Machida and Mauricio "Shogun" and discussed the controversial outcome to the talks TATAME. For the middleweight champion of the event, the Judges made the correct assessment. "The Lyoto fought well, was very well trained. It was a hard fought fight. Shogun fought at his pace very well, was very well prepared, is very experienced, but the technique was superior and Lyoto won resoundingly, "said Anderson.

    According to the training partner Lyoto, they should go home and draw a new strategy for a possible rematch, confident that the karateka won the fight. "They fought well, made a good fight, but Machida won well. Now it is back home and see what he had supposedly done wrong. This struggle has passed, does not matter anymore, he is the champion, a great person, a great athlete, "he said, congratulating the performance of former fellow Chute Boxe.

    "Shogun has done well, this fight was a fight that all MMA fans liked to see. In my opinion, Lyoto won all rounds. Shogun drew a good strategy to attack the legs, but it was not enough. There are coaches who have to decide, but the judges ... Lyoto won well, now it's back to training as soon as possible ", concluded Anderson.

    I think a lot of people need to rewatch the fight without that asshat joe rogan's commentary.
    I just watched the fight and was very surprised that they gave it to Machida. Shogun just looked more dominant throughout the fight; he executed his game plan exactly has he had planned.

    As for the biased commentary, the audience did not hear Joe Rogan's commentary and they clearly thought that Shogun was the winner. If I am not mistaken when the decison was announced, Machida had a surprised look on his face too.

    The crowd is also a bunch of L.A. douchebags and have an effective memory of about ten minutes.

    As far as I saw it Rua blocked a most of Machida's shots with his forearms.

    I was a little shocked. Sure, he changed sides quickly, but I guess even a dog can realize it has more in common with the wolf than with the shephard.

    I give him the names of some BJJ schools in the area, and we go our separate ways.

    Did you go to ufc.com and watch the post fight press conference like I suggested? Watch that and tell me machida looked more fucked up. Cuts show up right away and blood smears. Bruising and swelling show up later. Rua's face was more fucked up. I still say the bodies were similar, and I can't argue the legs as I didn't see them. All I can say about them is he didn't seem any slower in the fight.

    Just something to consider. I'm not a huge fan of Franklin McNeil, and I think he conceeding too much at times to the judges, but I do think this article makes an interesting point.

    So if it's a new fight in Nevada it will be new refs and judges. But if it's like the NBA, that might not matter: http://deadspin.com/5392067/excerpts...nt-you-to-read
