The fight was 3 minutes long and Machida was in no way dominating it or destroying Shogun. You could argue that Machida was ahead in the score cards and on his way to a 10-9 round, but the fight was only 3 minutes into the 25 minute fight. Shogun rocked and stopped Machida within 3 minutes.
There was nothing lucky about it, Shogun threw an overhand, it hit him, he fell. If that is lucky, than any punch that lands ever is lucky.
If Liddell would have landed his uppercut against Rashad, the fight might have been different. If Arlovski didn't do the flying knee, the fight might have been different. If Fedor would have worked/expected the takedown more against Bigfoot, it might have been different.
You can use this excuse for ANY fight, and it doesn't work on any of them, and it doesn't work on Machida vs. Shogun 2 either.
