    I know this is late but how many of y'all think that Machida won that fight. I just want to know that the majority are with me. I know the judges messed this decision up. Please let me know what y'all think.

    It was a close fight but if you watch the fight without commentary it's clear Davis won 29-28. Round 1 there was nothing except a nice Davis kick followed by a Machida flurry which while appears to connect due to Davis moving backward it actually doesn't then a Davis takedown Machida couldn't get up from.

    Round 2 there was actually nothing going on except for a late TD and Davis was in full control here with another minute Machida would have been finished

    Round 3 Davis gets reckless because he wants to finish the fight and stops being patient and try's to force TD's against Machida who stuffs them hits him with a few counters.

    Davis won 29-28.

    No you dummy, Machida probably cud have gotten up if he wanted to. He felt like he controlled the striking the entire round and decided not to waste a lot of energy fighting to get back up.

    Yeah no.

    Its not clear at all, in fact, what is clear is that Machida won and did more damage than Davis' lame standup and pitter patter shots on the ground.

    There, pretty sure I cleared it up.

    Anything else?

    jesus christ. It wasn't even that close. Davis did nothing to hurt Machida, he basically did nothing to threaten him.

    lol @ so many people here thinking Davis won. Fucking joke.

    TS there was a fan poll here immediately after the fight which dictated 70-75% of voters thought Machida did enough to win. The remaining other 25-30% sided with the judges' original UD that declared Davis as the winner.

    this was my personal score card:
    round 1- 10-9 Machida
    round 2- 10-9 Davis (closest round to score)
    round 3 10-9 Machida
    29-28 Machida

    No he couldn't of. Davis was hurting him on the ground at the end of the second.

    This - it wasn't even close. I know, I know, Machida is the worst ever, but here are the facts - at the post fight press conference, Dana said Machida absolutely won the fight, but you can't let it go to the judges. The poll that was up on sherdog for 3 weeks had a huge majority in favor of a Machida win, and every MMA website had Machida winning a UD. It was one of the worst decision's in quite a while, but it resulted in Machida going to MW and Glover getting the next title shot at LHW. I guess it's all relative though, so it doesn't matter much.
