Many of these decisions will go back to the old adage “you have to take the title from the champion,” and this fight was no exception. While watching this fight, I gave Machida one maybe two rounds (if I was feeling very generous.) Rua blasted Machida with so many kicks he could barely stand by the end, and still the decision was given to “the Dragon” Machida. Karma reared its head, however, when Rua got his revenge by KO a few months later. Mandatory Credit: Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports
After the debacle of a decision that was the fight between Georges St. Pierre and Johnny Hendricks a few weeks ago, I wanted to relive some of the recent decisions that have had fans scratching their heads and Dana White screaming for a change in the MMA judging. We have seen some terrible decisions over the past several years and I will try and remember some of the most prominent (If I went back any farther I would have 30 fights on this list.) Here they are (not including the St. Pierre fight), in no specific order, the Worst Decisions in Recent UFC History.
