Anderson Silva: "Lyoto Won All Rounds"
Anderson Silva was closely following the fight between Lyoto Machida and Mauricio "Shogun" and discussed the controversial outcome to the talks TATAME. For the middleweight champion of the event, the Judges made the correct assessment. "The Lyoto fought well, was very well trained. It was a hard fought fight. Shogun fought at his pace very well, was very well prepared, is very experienced, but the technique was superior and Lyoto won resoundingly, "said Anderson.
According to the training partner Lyoto, they should go home and draw a new strategy for a possible rematch, confident that the karateka won the fight. "They fought well, made a good fight, but Machida won well. Now it is back home and see what he had supposedly done wrong. This struggle has passed, does not matter anymore, he is the champion, a great person, a great athlete, "he said, congratulating the performance of former fellow Chute Boxe.
"Shogun has done well, this fight was a fight that all MMA fans liked to see. In my opinion, Lyoto won all rounds. Shogun drew a good strategy to attack the legs, but it was not enough. There are coaches who have to decide, but the judges ... Lyoto won well, now it's back to training as soon as possible ", concluded Anderson.

One of the judges defended his scoring, stating that although Shogun was aggressive, he was not affective. His failed takedown attempts did not score him any points but scored for Machida defending against them. His punches were clean and precise and affective. While Shogun was doing a lot of leg kicks.
I noticed also during the match, Joe Rogan was mostly calling Shogun's connection but not Machida's straight left to Shogun's face.
He also stated that Machida dictated the distance and movement of the fight and gave Machida ring generalship.
