UFC Quick Quote: Judge admits 'Shogun' may have beat Lyoto Machida

“There was a round in that fight [round four] where my line of sight while they were standing was blocked. Because of the angle where most of the round was fought, I couldn’t see the punches and whether they were landing. If the fight had been on the ground, I could look at the big screens, but this was a fight where the blows were coming one at a time and you don’t want to look away and miss an important blow.”

-- Judge Doc Hamilton tells Yahoo!Sports.com that a poor position ringside may have affected his scoring of the championship match between Lyoto Machida and "Shogun" Rua back in October. Upon further review, he feels that "Shogun" likely won round four, which would have given him the match from Hamilton. However, Machida won via unanimous decision, meaning that even if Hamilton scored the bout the way he may have with a monitor, Machida still would have won via split decision.
