    I wanted Machida to win. It was def a close battle but Shogun definitely deserved it.

    Major upset to all of us who bet money on Shogun and “technicially’ lost the bet due to the horrible decision. I should have made a killing due to the odds before the fight and honestly thought that it was gonna be easy money because no one gave Shogun a chance in the dark- only because they believed the hype surrond Machida and just didn’t know who Shogun was. Or they only knew him through his UFC fights. I’m never one to complain because I lost a bet but when I feel my fighter won, as do millions of other non-bias spectators and fans, then of course it’s an outrage to the sport and to the fighters. Other fighers best pay heed. Carwin- if you have any title hopes, please knock the man out!!!!! All the hype surrounding UFC’s PPV sellers will always favor them in these decisions because the casual MMA fan-mainly UFC influenced, will follow and believe anything they hear.
