IMHO it just was too late and the first two rounds were over and went to Rampage.
davis machida'd machida for 2 rounds. he backpeddled nd spammed kicks to put him ahead on the scorecards, then when machida rushed him to win the round back, davis ducked under and hit the takedown. he was gnp'ing him well too

machida beasted him in r3 tho

The victim stance is a powerful one. The victim is always morally right, neither responsible nor accountable, and forever entitled to sympathy.

Yeah I know thats how he fights, but it often leads to inconclusive rounds which the judges award to the other guy.

the times he looked good against page and when he threw his usual game aside and went aggresive
That is so fucking stupid. I can't believe I wasted like ten seconds of my life reading that horse shit lol. But then again, most of the things you post on here is just flat out ignorant.

Machida = Skateboarding GOAT.

Andy Whitfield was the only TRUE Spartacus.

1. Lyoto
2. Pettis/Condit

I can see people questioning the Machida-Davis decision, but the Machida-Rampage one? Really? I thought Rampage clearly won the first 2 rounds because Machida did jack shit. He literally just circled away from Rampage and landed hardly anything significant. Lyoto took the 3rd round with some nice combinations but by that point it was too late.

I don't see how people see that as a robbery.

Jones, Wand, Hendricks, Shogun, Hendo, Mir, Edgar, BJ, Nog, Ellenberger, Lauzon, Benson, Condit, Hunt, Swanson.
