Webster’s Dictionary definition of a ROBBERY right there!!!

At worse that should have been a draw. Machida was more aggressive. Phil didnt even touch Machida’s face nor body with ANY strikes. They were even on leg kicks. Machida tagged Phil in the face several times. So how the hell does one win a fight with a UNANIMOUS DECISION with just two take downs!!!

If i were Machida i would say phuk it and leave the UFC. Those judges were smoking some serious stuff.

Wow, what fight were the judges watching… Lyoto got robbed!

PertAndPopular Says, in 8-4-2013 at 01:16:33 from    

Wow! bullshit F*** that! He took him down durrr. And he was stuffed multiple times. My god shitty mma judging strikes again!

anakonda Says, in 8-4-2013 at 01:17:43 from    

That was a weird decision, but on the other hand lyoto shoulda done more damage to convince his strikes were significant. Hopefully we see davis vs. jones next.

I’m not a Lyoto fan….but whaaaaa?

iWay Says, in 8-4-2013 at 01:25:22 from    

Davis didn’t even believe he won.

Mungis Says, in 8-4-2013 at 01:26:18 from    

It was a close fight, still think kinda robbery but not totaly robbed….Who had u winning Bruno?

damnitrudy Says, in 8-4-2013 at 01:29:00 from    

I had some money on Phil and after watching that fight i dont think he should have won it. All he did is take him down twice, atleast machida had some nice slaps.

SuckaPunch Says, in 8-4-2013 at 01:34:30 from    

This fight was a classic example of commentators watching from one fighters perspective. I turned off the sound after round 2 and i also thought Davis was doing more. Still surprised he won in Brazil tho.

Zona Says, in 8-4-2013 at 01:36:36 from    

Machida had the hype of Goldie and Stann behind him. I saw Davis as the aggressor. Lyota suprised me moving forward but didn’t land the shots that the commentating said he did. Significant strikes weren’t there…Octagon control and GSP type last second takedowns won it.

dragoman Says, in 8-4-2013 at 01:40:18 from    

phils GNP was the only significant part of the fight, so i gave it to phil, will rewatch tomorrow and see what everyones talking about

ToOcH911 Says, in 8-4-2013 at 01:45:44 from    

thats not suprising. dana white even said it himself at the last ufc on fox that the judges give the round to who ever is on top at the end of the round and being that davis got those 2 late take downs in the end of round 1 and 2 the judges deffinitly gave him those rounds. im not saying its right, machida clearly won that fight 30 to 27 but i knew davis was gonna get those rounds

MMAgiantsilva Says, in 8-4-2013 at 01:46:44 from    

I scored it for Machida but in no way was it the robbery everyone especially StraightAhead are calling. Phil easily won round 2 and Machida easily won round 3. So it depends on how you scored round 1 Machida had 1 sweet flurry that round but mostly missed with it, Davis got one takedown and landed a little ground and pound. It is really one of those things where the judges picked what they liked better the first round was pretty even without a whole lot of action so it can honestly go either way.

masahiko kimura Says, in 8-4-2013 at 01:52:05 from    

That’s why they call him Mr. Wonderful

jonnyx Says, in 8-4-2013 at 01:56:34 from    

Both guys barely did anything. Davis is epitomizes the fighter that we all hate, just doing enough to win a round, going for the late round take down, not trying to go for the knock out or submission… he’s like a way worse GSP.

Lyoto needed to do more, he was constantly waiting for Davis to actually do something other than throw air punches. But it never happened. Thats why Davis looked more active, he was moving, throwing air punches, doing 0 damage but still looked active….

Joe Dog Says, in 8-4-2013 at 02:13:34 from    

Whatever, neither guy is(was)a match for Jones.

hond2dciv Says, in 8-4-2013 at 02:14:35 from    

I couldnt be more shocked by this decision in Brazil. I could have seen it 29-28 Machida, but I was expecting another BS decision for the Brazilian fighter, 30-27 Machida.

robber Says, in 8-4-2013 at 02:24:14 from    

those judges can go to hell.

rob Says, in 8-4-2013 at 02:25:56 from    

F*** these new ufc rules.

Ointment Says, in 8-4-2013 at 02:26:12 from    

I understand people for some reason love Brazilians and hate Americans, especially black ones, but how is this a robbery. Looked like a close fight that could have gone either way. Furthermore, considering how overtly UFC judges consider take downs into the equation I fully expected Davis to get the decision. Just because the crowd cheered heavily each time Lyoto threw a punch regardless of if it lands means nothing. Turn the sound off, rewatch the fight and realize take downs and top control pretty much win the round every time, and Davis easily wins.

Pikachumanson Says, in 8-4-2013 at 03:01:00 from    

I thought Davis won. He came closest to finishing the fight at the end of the second round.

shocktime Says, in 8-4-2013 at 03:23:30 from    

Somebody said something bout watching the fight with no sound on. And yeah if you do that it definitely looks like Phil won.
Machida is becoming to predictable. Everyone knows what he wants to do. He’s going to have to press the action more or he’s going to keep losing fights.

Jaydog Says, in 8-4-2013 at 04:26:46 from    

Have zero sympathy for Machida. The only person that got robbed was the people who paid to watch this fight. The whole fight was horrible. Maybe now that he is a victim of the same crap he does to other fighters, he might start fighting. I will say Machida surprised me with the Belfort flurry. Maybe Vitor can teach him how to connect those shots next time.

Dave Says, in 8-4-2013 at 04:59:51 from    

if anyone knows anything about MMA they would clearly agree Machida won all three rounds!. phil didn’t have a single strike that did any damage, while machida had much more precise effective strikes.
Phil was shocked himself by hearing the decision, it caught me completely by surprise!
its sad that these judges don’t know as much as a average joe about MMA
Machida should have been little more aggressive though

Krio Says, in 8-4-2013 at 08:17:10 from    

I’m starting to HATE this sport because the wrong people gets the “win” Phil Davis lost 1 takedown at the last minute does not mean you won the round, welcome to america where wrestling rules

Joker Says, in 8-4-2013 at 09:58:56 from    

Robbery? Nope Phil did what needs to be done,he stole the round late thanks to those annoying takedowns and Lyoto didn’t do enough damage from striking to convince the judges. Wouldn’t care if Lyoto got the decision either but I had Phil winning 2 rounds to 1, epic boring Lyoto style screw him this time. I guess there is a mma god after all.

CC3380 Says, in 8-4-2013 at 11:08:09 from    

This was not a robbery. Lyoto did nothing the first two rounds. His running away and throwing pitty pat punches are not real forms offense. Running away from your opponent is not winning a fight. Other than Phil’s takedowns, there was no other action in the first two rounds. You Lyoto fan boys need to get over his ability to run away from his opponents as real offense. It is not offense, it is runny away. Get over it. I hope Zuffa stops putting Lyoto on main cards.

cH1NO Says, in 8-4-2013 at 12:23:40 from    

Dana has been lenient on these pathetic judges for way too long now, Machida robbed twice now Rampage now this.

Pwnishor Says, in 8-4-2013 at 12:46:44 from    

So happy Davis won this will teach counter stikers that u cant just sit back and have fights handed to you just waiting for the other guy to always attack. Im glad he lost live and learn Machida.

mma fan Says, in 8-4-2013 at 12:48:51 from    

Davis barely. Machida’s strikes weren’t that impressive…

eman Says, in 8-4-2013 at 16:08:01 from    

what the h*ll? ufc is going to be one big joke. i dont get it, how you can win match without any damage given but only 2 takedowns, and when you failed about 5 of them.. these so called “judges”… i dont even say what i think about them. Lyoto landed so much more strikes, defended pretty god damn well takedowns and got robbed by judges.

Dan Blankenship Says, in 8-4-2013 at 17:30:10 from    

Phil Davis won that fight.

steve Says, in 8-4-2013 at 17:45:07 from    

@Bruno, success…I appreciate your efforts bro!

Chewy Says, in 8-4-2013 at 17:57:51 from    

Machida really is 21-2! Rampage robbed him! now Mr.Crapful! Zero chances has Davis of beating JBJ!!!!!

BillBoop Says, in 8-4-2013 at 18:11:29 from    

Lyoto shouldn’t have let it get to this again. he did the same w Henderson and rampage. and thats how jones narrowed him down. in all fairness, three strike landing from lyoto don’t do anything for winning the fight either. but he let it go to cards. Phil got two take downs, maybe four knee hit counts on the ground(still count as one even those they were light/pat) and more strike attempts on Lyoto. Even though they many did not connect (phil clear hi nothing but air on those front kicks and punches toward his chest), they were more attempts totals than the dragon. Seen in judging, more attempts to try to win.

MMAgiantsilva Says, in 8-4-2013 at 20:59:56 from    

For the folks saying he only had two take downs please watch round 2 again Davis clearly won that round. Round 3 was Machida’s but round 1 was really a pick em round because all Machida did was throw a flurry that missed mostly and was blocked for the most part or a take down and like 2-3 kicks Davis had. Not a bad decision at all even though I personally gave it to Machida because, I am a fan. But it is silly for folks to call this a controversial decision the crowd in Brazil is just stupid they thought Iilard beat Uncle Creepy as well lol.

Im ok with it.

Sammy Says, in 8-4-2013 at 21:53:18 from    

Lyoto is a great fighter but he comes in with a karate mindset, trying to outpoint his opponent. He should be more aggressive, really only has himself to blame. A fighter so talented should not fight to win on points.

kimba007 Says, in 8-4-2013 at 22:21:39 from    

This is the first time that the judges in UFC event in Brazil were correct. Muhammad Ali was the first modern day fighter that knew the importance of fininshing a round strong or even active in the judges eyes. Dana White knows the psychology of judge’s scoring in a boring round by finishing on top. In Brazil because of the fan’s influence foreigners have to fight like if they automatically have a penalty point against them. This fight SUCKED period. Davis did onto Machida what Machida does onto others, run and be evasive, BORING. Noticed how winded Machida was at the end of round One, and they did nothing. Kenny Florian’s announcing was horrible again, first round, he said Machida scored 4 “great” consecutive rushing punches and a kick to the head (As Warner Wolf used to say, “let’s go to the video tape).Only one punch connected and the kick was blocked. Joe Rogan, where are you when UFC is in Brazil? Never leave it to the judges…….FIGHT! A few months when the fight was announced I had Machida to win and he does this CRAP. You want someone to blame, blame the Dragon.

darby Says, in 8-4-2013 at 22:26:13 from    

that was total robbery but didnt anyone else wonder why the announcer at the end gave the mike to the interpretor for lyoto machida, he knows the language lol

tobes Says, in 8-5-2013 at 00:03:23 from    

ok all the people who are up in arms about this outcome obviously don’t do wrestling. if you did, you’d understand how hard it is to take someone down to the ground.

also, machida was saved by the bell at the end of the 2nd round. davis landed a vicious knee to the body.

You could make an argumen for either fighter winning. personally, i agree with the judges (rounds 1 and 2 to davis). please tell me the time of any seriously damaging strike by either fighter in the first round. neither guy was winning the round decisively, then davis got a nice takedown. steals the round.

2nd round hard to call, machida started to get a few nice strikes, but the takedown and knees by davis were nice too. close round.

3rd round was Machida, but not enough for a 10-8.

I think Machida’s loss to Rampage was a much bigger robbery than this fight.

landing a takedown and holding down a fighter for over a minute (first round), threatening with a kimura and holding half guard, is more meaningful than a few jabs. if you don’t understand that, you’re not a true fighter… wrestling may not be beautiful (to you) but those who fight know that it’s the grittiest, nastiest toughest sport out there.

close fight. not the crazy robbery some of you are making it out to be.

tobes Says, in 8-5-2013 at 00:07:36 from    

@ mmagiantsilva and mmafan (and others) thank you for also speaking some sense

vsmoove Says, in 8-5-2013 at 08:50:17 from    

Watched the fight with no sound as I had company… 1st round was toss-up… Davis got 2nd and Machida got third… this was not a robbery, though I had it for Machida. If Machida wants to be next up for a shot, he needs to be more aggressive, especially when his stand-up is so much better than his opponent’s.

dankarelli Says, in 8-5-2013 at 10:04:08 from    

I watched the entire fight with no audio. Close fight. I don’t IN ANY WAY see this “Robbery” everyone is screaming about. I’m a Machida fan. I heard all this yelling about a robbery so I expected to see one. I tried to be impartial and watch the fight without commentary and it’s as close as can be. In fact the only moments I felt where anyone was in real danger was for Machida when he was was on his back.

Close fight and I’m totally OK with the decision. I honestly don’t see what everyone is talking about.

Actually I was kinda bored watching the fight.

Kakihara Says, in 8-5-2013 at 15:27:23 from    

This fight was a draw… of boringness

NotVinnieJones Says, in 8-5-2013 at 22:05:54 from    

For everyone who is upset because Machida got “robbed” then be mad at Machida. He’s got the skills and talent to go into beast mode yet he makes the decision to play it safe and do juuuuuust enough to win the round, even if that means doing nothing more than just throwing an occasional punch here and there but nothing else.
He did the same thing he did against Hendo, he stayed cautious, he played it safe, he left it to the judges, and it backfired on him. Now he’s fallen further away from another title shot than he was before. Let’s hope he learns something from it.
