Ed Soares, the manager for Lyoto Machida and several other fighters, thinks “The Dragon” deserves a rematch with Phil Davis.
Over the weekend, Davis earned a decision victory vs. Machida at UFC 163: Aldo vs. Korean Zombie. The result was highly controversial, sparking much conversation.
Soares, who wrote on Twitter he initially believed Machida won rounds one and three, gave his client all three after re-watching it on television.
“What do you guys think about a 5 round Machida vs. Davis Rematch?” he asked. “If Davis win that he deserves to fight for the title.”
UFC president Dana White agreed with Soares’ scoring that night, giving the bout to Machida but adding “that’s what happens when u leave it up to the judges!”
