Machida claims 'illegal shot' was turning point in loss
(mixedmartialarts.com)
Lyoto Machida suffered one of his worst losses at UFC on FOX 15 to Luke Rockhold, but claims it was an illegal blow that caused the fight to go in the wrong direction for him: "I've watched it maybe 3-4 times, that fight," Machida said on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "I saw that I got an elbow on my neck, he elbowed my neck and I was so dizzy that time. Then, when I went to corner, I barely hear my brother, so when I got back to the fight, I was so dizzy, my legs were wobbly. I wasn't recovered. So suddenly I fell again, and he was smart and capitalized."
