Quote of the Day: Shogun Talks UFC 104 Main Event Judges

via Sherdog.com

"I got really sad with that result but happy by the impact...I train hard, and every round, my corner told me to be calm because I was winning. Once I was winning, I decided to not expose myself and enter into Lyoto’s game. If I got more aggressive, I would have entered into Lyoto’s game and taken unnecessary risks, just like all his previous opponents did. I used the right tactics and I will probably do the same in the rematch."
...
"When the fight was over, I talked with many people, including [UFC President] Dana White. Everybody said I won, except the three judges, but they’d rather give the win to Lyoto," Rua said. "It’s so bad to loose a battle like that for interest of other people."
...
"I was not aggressive enough? You just have to look at my face and his face after the fight...He didn’t kick me one single time. I just got some knee butts. He has a broken rib, a deep cut in his mouth and could not even walk after the fight. I hit him twice as much, but the UFC judges analyzed some different aspects that I don’t really understand. I’m very upset. Actually, I cannot consider my last fight a loss."

-- Mauricio "Shogun" Rua talking to Sherdog.com about his controversial unanimous decision loss to Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship at UFC 104
