“UFC 113: Machida vs. Shogun II” took place Saturday night inside the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.
The most controversial decision rendered in 2009 came to a convincing resolution when Mauricio “Shogun” Rua knocked out light heavyweight champion Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida in the night’s main event.
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 Shogun was robbed.
The verdict was so questionable, it prompted UFC president Dana White to schedule an immediate mulligan.
