This past Saturday night (Nov. 12, 2011) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, Juan Manuel Marquez did everything he could to knock off Filipino fighting machine, Manny Pacquiao, in a 12 round slugfest for the ages.
But he just couldn't do it.
Marquez fought valiantly, taking the fight the distance and breaking UFC President Dana White's old rule to never leave it in the hands of the judges. Perhaps he should have taken White's advice, too, seeing as he feels he was "robbed" for a third time.
The bout was close, with pundits and fans split down the middle in their opinion of who won. It was a classic battle but it was also controversial, if only for the outcry of support for Marquez.
There was plenty to talk about after all was said and done. Let's get to it:
