The worst decision ever was Shogun vs Machida I. Those trying to say Machida was robbed in such a close fight are major fanboys to say the least. Close fight, CLOSE FIGHT, ClOsE fIgHt. It was not domination by Machida then taken away so stop your crying.
i agree 100% i actually got nervous when i realized it was a split decision because i really though rampage won the fight. with current scoring system in place(as in non-pride scoring system) rampage won the 2nd and machida own the third. i think rampage also when the first because machida did next to nothing.
