"I recognize the fact that Rua did have a few take down attempts during the course of the fight, However, Lyoto defended them all successfully, which counts as effective grappling in his favor, where as unsuccessful take down attempts are not scored at all."

So, I've been reading many Pro Randy threads and nobody seems to mention this. If Machida can win the Shogun fight by defending takedowns, why didn't Vera score any points for Takedown defense? Randy stalled because HE FAILED AT TAKING VERA DOWN. Randy should not have won the fight for clinching 3 whole rounds. Vera got takedowns, got mount, had harder strikes and he still lost. WTF is wrong with the judges.
