    Shogun should have done more and pressed harder.

    Yeh because winning 4 of 5 rounds without a doubt, and arguably all 5, isn't enough?

    i concur, shogun was robbed of his win and Machida didn't do much of anything for 5 rounds, but yet they handed him the win. I seriously would like to know wtf fight the judges were watching, because obviously it wasnt the fight everyone else watched.

    From a belt holder? Arguably, no. If it weren't a title fight I'm sure Shogun would have gotten the win. Did that look like title fight performance from either party? Not really. I stand by my previous statement.

    Shogun easily beat him in 4 of the 5 rounds...TBH, the "belt holder" should not look so timid and afraid. Yes, afraid. Makes the sport look pathetic when you crown a fighter such as that. TBH, again, if Shogun had been awarded the belt as he deserved, I would have been disappointed if he granted Machida a rematch as he showed nothing in the fight to deserve one.

    so losing 3 to 4 rounds is defending your belt ?

    Sorry, I know this thread is old, I just haven't been reading the forums lately.

    I suppose something that the average MMA viewer doesn't know or realize that UFC, or Strikeforce, or any event holder does not get to choose the referee's, the judges, or have any influence at all on the outcome of the scoring.

    Sure, maybe it's poor for the sport, but is there anything that can be done about it? Not really. Here is some more food for thought:

    While all 3 judges came up with the same score of 48 - 47, the scores for each of the 3 judges were reached in different ways (see attached).

    Honestly, I watched the fight 3 times, and each time I saw a very good fight and a had a hell of a time scoring the fight myself. I think in the end I always did come up with Shogun, BUT it was very close, and ultimately it's sad that this decision has taken away from the great fight they had.

    If I'm not mistaken, round 4 was 100% CLEARLY to shogun (like no doubt). I'm pretty sure that was the round...Yet I notice first card went to Machida. Interesting.

    Maybe it is just me, but I even felt the reaction after the fight was indicative of the fight. Machida looked horribly disappointed--and when he threw his arms up (as if he had won) many seconds after Shogun, he seemed defeated even then.
