“For Dana White to go out there and say that I lost, not only is taking credibility away from the judges, but taking credibility away from his event. …because if the judges are stealing, what does that say about the UFC?”
Those are the words from UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida in response to Dana White’s comments about Machida’s first fight with Mauricio “Shogun” Rua which took place at UFC 104 last October.
Although three judges ruled Machida the unanimous winner, White and many UFC fans disagreed. The rematch takes place this Saturday in Montreal, Canada, at UFC 113 when Machida will try to prove once and for all he is the legitimate light heavyweight champ.
