Now that the dust has settled on UFC 163, fans will be debating the controversial verdict between Phil Davis (pictured) and Lyoto Machida for days to come – some, perhaps forever.

Nearly every fan inside HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro and most journalists sitting in press row believed Machida did enough to take home a decision win. However, the three judges who have final say unanimously believed Davis was the victor (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).

UFC president Dana White said he thought Machida won all three rounds. However, he capped off his verdict with “that’s what happens when u leave it up to the judges!”
