This was the main event of UFC 123 and people are still talking about it because of the controversy over who won the fight. The judges said the Rampage Jackson won the fight. When the final bell had rung, Rampage said that Lyoto Machida had won the fight. UFC President Dana White said Jackson won the fight. FightMetric, the official statistics keeper for the UFC said the Machida won the fight. And every fight fan out there has a beer-soaked opinion of what happened on that PPV.
OK, so its official that Rampage Jackson won the fight – no one can dispute the judges decision. But the controversy still leaves a cloud over the fight. And because it is controversial, that means that the UFC can pull out a sequel to this fight the next time they need to fill out a weak pay-per-view card.
Not bad. 1 fight. 2 winners. Rampage Jackson and the UFC.
