That's a very good point.

Maybe not a top 5 worst decision of all-time but not far off considering it was a title fight. Shogun won 4 rounds with the other being very close. Shogun landed more shots, better/harder shots and just destroyed his body with kicks. Machida looked like he didn't want to fight by the end of the match. He was completely shocked when they announced him as the winner and rightfully so. I watched the fight with about 12 other people most of whom were casual fans and as someone who had pumped the fight/sport up it was embarrassing. Everyone figured it had to be rigged.

There's definitely not worse decisions on every card. Maybe a few per year tops.

Manny vs Bradley was much worse but you're either blind or biased if you don't think Shogun/Machida was a terrible decision.
