There have been a number of decisions rendered in prizefighting over the years that have left the masses angry, bewildered and suspicious. Boxing has long been labeled the black sheep of the professional sports world because of such verdicts, and now, sadly, mixed martial arts seems to be stumbling down the same path.

Georges St. Pierre has held sway over the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s welterweight division for more than five years. St. Pierre will defend his title against the once-beaten Johny Hendricks in the UFC 167 main event on Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The 32-year-old champion will enter the Octagon on a career-best 11-fight winning streak, having already established himself as the greatest welterweight in UFC history in the minds of many.
For anyone skeptical of Lyoto Machida’s decision to drop from 205 to 185 pounds, it took 3:10 to erase the doubts.

It was inevitable, or so everyone thought. After watching Velasquez thoroughly dominate and eventually stop his rival, a simple question must be asked. Do MMA fans even want to see them lock horns again?
