But according to you lot, EVERYBODY thought Shogun won. So there would be no debate... just a bunch of keyboard warriors oiling each other up and agreeing with each other. Thats not the case. There IS a debate. D.E.B.A.T.E. Two opposing views. You know what I mean? Good lord, you people.

Yea...as was stated the outrage isnt over how close it was its over how close it WASNT. If there were 5 truly even rounds its understandable. But most fans, the media and the UFC PRESIDENT saw at LEAST 3 CLEAR rounds for Rua with 2 that COULD go either way.

Shogun won the fight! It was close, but Shogun got the better of Lyoto. That is why there is going to be a rematch because everyone knows Shogun was robbed.

I like both fighters, but Shogun clearly won,no more excuse from Lyoto fans. He lost that fight, thats it!

The debate is in the ratio of 100:1 in regards to people who thought Shogun won to those who thought Lyoto won. And you Machida fans are delusional!!!

when i first saw the fight, I thought shogun won 48-47, but afeer a second watch with the sound off, i saw machida clearly winning the 1st and second rounds and I also gave him the nod on the third. Tbh i dont undertand why everyone thinks its such a robery. Machida had the better combinations in the first three rounds and actuallyy avoided or countered a lot of shoguns offences

Honestly, I try to give the Machida supporters the benefit of the doubt but I really can't see anyway Machida won that fight. IMO shogun took every round but two of them were almost too close to call. Even then the most objective score I could give would be two 10-10 rounds and three rounds for Shogun.

And I'm not a Shogun fan by any means, or at least I wasn't until this fight. Since his UFC debut I've rooted against him in every fight except for the Griffin fight.

I don't want to call those who picked Machida as the winner "bias" because I don't want to generalize but I really don't see the argument for him winning .

I think he's right. I don't think people realize how biased Joe's commentary was. Watching without sound was very enlightening. Most people who try it switch their decisions.

Actually, all the Sherdog guys, now say this was NOT a robbery. Breen admitted that every round could have gone either way and of those who thought Rua won, there was no consensus on the rounds. They are all now stating that all this talk about robbery is silly. So if you're going to use them as references, you may want to tell the entire story.

And don't forget aboout PRIDE huggery which is always a factor.
