* UFC 113: Machida vs Shogun 2

When the two fighter met at UFC 104, many including myself thought Shogun won the fight via decision but Machida walked away with the belt and this fight is the rematch that all of us are waiting for.

Kimbo Slice was impressive during the first few minutues of the fight when he fought against with Matt Mitrione, but in the next round of the fight Kimbo got hit alot of times and KO'd.

The Koscheck and Daley fight was not that fun because it was a decision but Koscheck dominated and outwrestled Daley, the two had bad blood before the fight started, talking trash to each other. In the end of round 3 while Koscheck is walking back to his corner, Daley did punched him. In the post fight conference UFC President said Daley will never fight in the UFC again for his manners. Koscheck wins via unanimous decision.

The Rua and Machida fight was the best fight for me, it was the first time I saw Machida lost and KO'd in the first round. Making Shogun the new UFC LHW Champion.
