I am really hyped to go see UFC 104 tonight @ The Agency in Portland. I am not really into fantasy MMA leagues or anything like that but, I am going to make the call here that Machida “The Dragon” is going to OWN Shogun in this hot bout. MMA is such a dynamic sport because there are so many different ways to win, such different styles and techniques…you just never know what is going to happen! I have not been into watching any sports in a long time, but MMA has caught my eye, perhaps because I trained in a variety of diffrent martial arts. I wrestled my freshmen year, did some karate for two years in High School, kick boxed really hardcore for about two years in College, also fenced for a semester and have just had a general love for martial arts my whole life.
Response to UFC 104 Fight Decision (Post Fight)
Well needless to say the fight decision was super controversial and Machida did not own Shogun the way I would have liked, but he did clearly win. The reason that I say this and agree completely with the unanimous decision is because of the third round. In the third round Machida dominated Shogun and a one point I felt he had the opportunity to take him out, though I was disappointed that Lyoto did not cease the opportunity to finish the fight, Shogun NEVER had the Machida in such a position. Clearly Machida was in control, the primary aggressor and deserved to retain his world championship status + belt. It was a indeed a good fight and I look forward to a rematch to settle the dispute once and for all.
