If there was anyone more shocked that Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, himself, after the light heavyweight was awarded a split-decision win over Lyoto Machida, it may have been Ed Soares.

Machida's manager, Soares firmly believes his client had done enough in the first and third round to claim victory in this past Saturday's UFC 123 main event.

Soares was so convinced that the fight was scored incorrectly that he clearly could be seen on the evening's pay-per-view broadcast telling Jackson in no uncertain terms that he thought the wrong fighter's hand was raised.

Despite the brief exchange, Soares said there's no hard feelings between him and Jackson. In fact, quite the opposite is true.

"I've been friends with Quinton for a long time, and I'm going to call a spade a spade," Soares said. "

I thought that this was a rather unfortunate choice of words.
