Lyoto Machida Vs. Shogun 2 Set For May 1st In Montreal


After a controversial finish at UFC 104 in October that seen Lyoto Machida defend his light heavyweight championship against Shogun Rua, in a fight many believed Shogun won, UFC President Dana White stated that Shogun would receive an immediate rematch and now a date has been set.

On May 1st when the UFC returns to Montreal the two 205lb fighters will clash again to see if someone can decisivly walk away as champion.

It wasn't the prettiest of fights and the arguement could be made that Shogun didn't “beat” the champion with it being so close but, the 10 point must system which has been the focus of criticism since its inception in the sport of MMA clearly had Shogun winning the fight on many MMA insider, writers, and fans scorecards.

Hopefully next time one of the fighters takes it out of the judges hands.
