Nice job by Barbosa. He is going to be tough fight for anyone who tries to stand with him.



Yeah, he is going to be a "take him down or die" matchup for anyone at lightweight. Nice addition to the UFC!

Sweet, we get to see Barboza.

A 30-29 scorecard would best reflect the Rampage/Machida fight. 10-10 rounds are not always a bad thing.



I agree on the second sentence.
But i'd score it a 29-29 in a perfect world. The first round was rampages based on the fact that Machida landed nothing significant and was being chased around the whole time.

I think the damage done in the clinch was enough to give rampage the first two rounds.

I agree with this. What did Machida do to win that round



Watching real-time I had Machida 29-28. Since I streamed it and didn't order and DVR I'll have to wait til it hits the UFC vault to really have any insightful info the other way. If you both had Rampage winning the first 10 minutes, more power to you, and maybe you saw something I didn't; but until I see the first two rounds a second time, there obviously won't be much extra insight to recall upon.

I would not have been too surprised to see Machida win, I just don't agree that either of the first two rounds were strong enough for Machida that one could say that it was obvious that Machida won.

I totally expected Machida to get the decision, Rampage's style tends to not be viewed favorably by judges.

Sorry dude; Zuffa pays me to say they are the only one.

Thought Machida won two rounds to one. So did the patrons of the bar I was at if that counts for anything.

I had Rampage winning, but it could have gone either way. The first two rounds were close, especially the second, but I gave both of them to Rampage by a slight margain. Third round was the most decisive and went to Machida without question.

You could make a case for Machida winning the second, but with Rampage moving forward more, and probably landing more shots in the clinch won him the first two rounds. That takedown in the second didn't hurt, either.

Very close fight, and I wouldn't hate a rematch. Under Pride rules, you might give it to Machida. I definetly don't envy the judges, but I think the right man got the win

I had Machida by decision.

Last 2 fights killed my picks, but I FINALLY hit a big underdog parlay thanks to Falcao's decision over Harris and wound up #4 in earnings as a result.
