UFC 123 Machida Robbed

UFC 123 Machida Robbed

The main event for UFC 123 was Quinton Rampage Jackson Vs Lyoto Machida. The fight was close it has to be said. But Machida was the clear winner. When the scores were being read out everyone was convinced that Machida's arm would be raised and didn't think much of it as it seemed like there was no way the decision could go any other way, but instead it was Rampage Jackson that was declared the winner on the score cards. Machida was robbed! Even Rampage Jackson said it himself after the fight. Something should be done about this, perhaps an instant rematch, or the fight should be looked at by the governing bodies. Almost everyone thought Machida had won, even his opponent, so there's something not right there.

Co-main event was between long time rivals BJ Penn and Matt Hughes. The fight was over in just 21 seconds, thanks to a nice accurate punch by BJ Penn. BJ caught Hughes with a flush punch to the side of the face and down he went. BJ, eager to get an early night went in for the kill, landing some full on punches to the defensless face of Matt Hughes as he lay there dazed. The referee jumped in on BJ Penn to save Hughes from any further punishment and the fight was over.
