Wow I didn't realize how many true saints of justice were on this board. I am really really really having difficulty believe any of you would actually forfeit the belt. And until you are faced with that exact situation, honestly your opinion means nothing.

Oh and I'm sorry, I didn't realize Machida was one of the ring side judges... yes let's all blame him because the judges scored him as the winner, which was obviously his doing.

Didn't you guys see it?! As he was walking into the ring, Machida handed them all a happy meal...

If Shogun wanted the title, should have finished the fight... not leave it to the judges. This is what happens, and no you don't give up your belt. And for those of you righteous do gooders who think he should, grow up.

i would not have given it up. first of all, it is much easier to tell whether you one or not while watching instead of fighting. it was a close fight.

Because Machida's ment to be this honourable guy, Shogun put on a better performance and was the better fighter that night. If hes so honourable then why is he keeping the belt after he lost the fight? sure 3 people thought he won including Cecil Peoples but the majority disagree.

Good thing the majority of people aren't the only 3 people that matter.

I'd be at home polishing my belt right now while icing my legs quite frankly.

This is what I was expecting from Machida:

Man, i didn't know Rampage did this. Fair play to the guy, trying to hand over the trophy as well.

Sorry to correct you but Machida won the fight, its you who thinks he didn't. He would be silly to give up his belt.

This was a great fight, it really F**ks me off we are talking about the judge's and not the fight itself. There was not a lot to pick between the two, i thought Shogun won but i'm just a fan. The best thing about it is there is a high chance of a rematch now
