UFC 104 review!

Well what a great night of fights,albeit slightly marred by two possible dodgy judges decisions,in the co main event Cain Velasquez looked absolutely amazing,he was up against a veteran in Big Ben Rothwell and gave away reach, height, and about 25lbs in weight but that made no difference as Velasquez came out and simply dominated Rothwell both on the feet and on the ground and eventually the ref jumped in early in the second round as Velasquez was punching Rothwell repeatedly with no response from the fighter at all so the ref jumped in and called a halt to proceedings although there were unhappy calls from Rothwells corner who stated and quite rightly that Rothwell was getting to his feet so couldn't stop the punches,but never the less Rothwell was outclassed and Velasquez must now face surely the winner of Carwin vs Lesnar.
In the main event Everybody (myself included)thought that Machida was going to come in and dominate Shogun from start to finish,as it was Shogun came out and with some of the best leg kicks seen since Thiago Alves started wearing down the more and more frustrated looking Machida,Every time Machida came forward with a flurry Shogun answered with some well timed counter strikes,When it got to the fifth round Machida looked tired and had caught some big punches and was a bit bloodied.The judges came back with a unanimous decision for Lyoto Machida and he got the result he wanted,Many felt that shogun had possibly won it(me included) but as has been said many many times the ten point scoring system does not work well for mma and if you really want the title belt you will have to defeat the champion,never leave it in the hands of the judges,there are calls for a rematch and although i have no doubt it would be a great rematch i fear Machida would of learnt from this lesson and will be better prepared next time.

In other results a huge looking Anthony Johnson won very quickly when he ko'd yoshiyuki yoshida,think Johnson may have to move up to middleweight.Gleison Tibau defeated Josh Neer via unaminous decison and Spencer Fisher lost to Joe Stevenson via strikes in the first round.
