Actually I am more irritated that 3 judges called it for MAchida and the only one being hung out to dry is Cecil. Hell he might have called the match like a blind man, but atleast he is giving you his assessment of the fight and why he scored it how he did. Nobody si attacking the other 2 judges who scored it for Machida.
One said it was close and it was the little things that won Machida the round. What little things? Why is nobody going crazy over that comment.
People argue more thrown must mean win, in combat sports that sometimes doesnt mean a victory. More landed is the same thing. You a boxing fan, you know this is the case from time to time.
