Mauricio “Shogun” Rua strongly feels that he was the true winner against Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida at UFC 104. Machida earned a unanimous decision victory over Rua in what may be one of the most controversial fights in mixed martial arts history.
From Mauricio Shogun:
“It was a tough fight, I knew that Lyoto was good, but I could put my rhythm on…I’m sure that I won, everybody thinks that I won. I talked with a lot of people here and they thought that I won, but unfortunately I think that they gave him the victory because of some interests…Everyone was surprised with what happened in the end, but what can I do?”
