Could Machida/Shogun II have one sided Judging?

With comments still buzzing about the controversial decision at UFC 104 this past Saturday, one not so common concern has popped into my mind; Will the judging in the rematch be biased towards Shogun this time around?

It seems unlikely, but with it being made apparent that the judges for the rematch will be three completely different judges than those who were appointed this fight, It is starting to seem like this may lead to pressure being put on the judges to maybe value Shogun's offense more than they should. I doubt the judges pay any mind to the opinions of people online (except Cecil Peoples, if he counts.) but it would appear as if there is a lot of added pressure on the new judges not to undervalue Shogun's offense this time around.  Although the spiteful side of me would love to see biased judging in favor of shogun, I would rather have shogun win with fair judging than to have another controversial decision, and yet another champion who arguably got the title gifted to them.
