Henderson got robbed in the fight against Machida. I don't know how a guy that runs backwards the whole fight and will not engage wins more rounds on any referee card.
The judging is becoming a f'ng joke....Machida is a joke.

yeah, Mohammed Ali was a crappy boxer because he wouldn't just stand there and take punches to the face...fighting is all about getting the crap beaten out of you, right? Are you f'king stupid? Machida won by fighting SMART....anyone who thinks Hendo won must be blind or ****...

Gotta agree with Loki - i'll admit it was a close fight, but Machida outsmarted Hendo. Love me some Hendo, and wish Hendo would have got the win, but he came up a bit short. I don't like the way Machida fights, but, I also wouldn't want to take one of Hendo's punches to the chin or temple...just sayin...it's all good!!
