I like to watch MMA's specially if the match are between two very good fighters,...but just like any other sports there were "Judges" that spoils the sport,...judges that actually damage the sport's credibility because of a very obvious 'wrong' decisions...
The fight between Lyoto Machida and "Shogun" Rua was a very good example of a fighter winning a unanimous decisions because all 3 judges see the loser as the winner....hahaha..,...Is Dana White involve in the FIX?...Shogun Rua clearly won and I was just amazed by his sportsmanship................... watch the fight and you will know why...
You're correct that Shogun was robbed. There is a pretty lengthy discussion about it going on over in the MMA section of the boards. You're welcome to join us if you'd like.
And no, as much as I hate Dana White, he had no part of the fix. The athletic state commission appoints judges, not the UFC. And Dana has blasted the referees publicly already, and has stated numerous times that he thought Shogun clearly won the fight. In fact, the first thing he said upon entering the ring was "You won the fight."
Gotta feel for Rua too, you could just see the frustration in him. Heartbreaking to see someone work so hard, perform so well, and then get ROBBED so blatantly by judges who were obviously playing their PSPs or something during the fight.
