After a boring close fight against Phil Davis at UFC 163, Lyoto Machida lost a contoversial decision in the eyes of the judges. The Dragon has now been toppled from his number one contender spot, and will likely not recieve his long deserved rematch against Jon Jones.
When you consider that Glover Teixeira will get a title shot should he beat Ryan Bader, whom Machida knocked out, it certainly seems the MMA gods are taking a large dump on Machida. The fight was close, and there are argumentrs for both sides, and obviously Machida feels he won.
