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.
