    American's just need the right vaccines. They have no immunity to toxoplasma.

    probably placed all their cash on Davis to win a decision, odds would be like +500 I think :icon_chee

    I agree.

    What about GSP winning every decision in Canada too. that's fucked up too.

    UFC should go to neutral places like Portugal, Spain etc.

    Wand lost a close decision to Franklin
    Sarafian lost a close decision to Pierce
    Machida lost a close decision to Davis

    Judges are doing a bad job onight though. Can't deny that. But they are not brazilian, I think.

    Yes but they've recently brought in some local Brazilain MMA judges the last show or two. But for instance, the judges in the earier fights were RICHARD BERTRAND and SAL D'AMATO. Both American judges.
