The most controversial decision rendered in 2009 will hopefully come to a resolution at UFC 113 on May 8th. The event takes place inside the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada and will be headlined by a light heavyweight rematch between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and champion Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida.
The pair initially met in a hard-fought battle at UFC 104 this past October. Although the champ was awarded a 48-47 score from all three judges sitting Octagon-side, most, if not all, of the fans inside Staples Center in Los Angeles believed Machida got away with highway robbery.
The verdict was so questionable, it prompted UFC president Dana White to schedule an immediate mulligan.
In addition, Josh Koscheck will face Paul Daley in a pivotal welterweight affair. It was reported yesterday that the victory will be assigned coaching duties on the 12th season of “The Ultimate Fighter” opposite champion Georges St-Pierre. In essence, the Kos and Daley scrap appears to be a 170-pound top contender bout.
