Fans Are Focusing On The Wrong Things

Posted 11-02-2009 at 12:33 PM by

When an amazing fight takes place between two elite fighters, it can be an extremely exciting event. What makes it even more exciting is when the fights are so close and competitive that fans cant tell who the clear cut winner was. One of the more exciting fights that took place very recently was the Light Heavyweight title bout between Lyoto Machida, and Shogun Rua.

This fight was a fantastic battle from start to finish. It was an extremely close fight. Many fans disagree but the fact of the matter is, the reason there is such a big dispute going on right now, is because of how close that fight actually was.

I find myself wondering why so many fans are becoming so angry with the outcome of this fight. I completely understand being a loyal fan and wanting your fighter to do great. We all feel that way towards our favorite fighters. But this should not prevent us fans from appreciating what a tremendous show was put on by two great warriors. Instead of becoming so angry with other people, fans should rather be looking foward to the future rematch of these two fighters that will hopefully be just as exciting as their first meeting.

MMA fans need to find the middle ground where they can be disappointed because of their fighter losing, but also be appreciative of the tremendous show that they watched. Even when a controversial decision is given, it does not change that fact that those two fighters were out there fighting for their fans, and they did not disappoint. These fighters left everything in the cage, and they are definitely warriors in my book.

    Its pretty bad though when the President of the UFC says "You won that fight" to Shogun right after the decision, the commentators both thought Shogun had won, and almost every fan besides Machida fans agree that it was a bad decision. Either way, Shogun will beat him in the rematch so its all good.

    [FONT=Lucida Sans Unicode]Well Stokes with that said Dana has always been a caught up in the moment guy and i think he felt more like he needed to justify it to fan's, those that dont understand the scoring and judging, nor are they looking at the counter strikes that everyone missed. i think Hit is correct and i also think there really is no room for Shogun to cry over this loss he is getting an immediate rematch and if he wanted to he could have finished Lyoto in the 5th when Lyoto couldn't walk....but he didn't.....Reminds me of De La Hoya vs. Trinidad.....De La Hoya should have finished that fight.....he thought he had it won....[/FONT]

    For me the sad thing was how the public and the crowd reacted after this fight. How can ppl booo on somebody who puts his whole life into this moment!? Who always tries to put on such a great show to satisfy exactly these dumb people. The crowd just saw one of the best Mixed Martial Arts fights ever happened in this World and the only think these drunken people can do is booing on somebody who lived his whole life for this dream. Seriously, I never felt so bad for a fighter and a person before, when anybody doesn't deserve to be treated like that, it's Lyoto. Man I think Lyoto was near to tears, I hope that he and the other fighters realise that you should never give anything on a dumb and drunken crowd like we see them in the UFC!

    I agree BC. I think it is ridiculous that people are mad at Lyoto for winning. I don't care what anyone says, that fight was close. Lyoto fought his heart out and he deserves to be shown respect as he is more successful than probably every single person who boo'd him. Even if you aren't a Lyoto fan, he deserves your respect as the UFC LHW champion, and as one of the best fighters in the world.
