UFC 113 Results: Shogun Rua Destroys Lyoto Machida To Become The UFC Light Heavyweight Champion

New, 13 comments

The fight was all Shogun Rua besides two take downs from Lyoto Machida.  Shogun Rua was winning the the standup portion of the fight, but Machida got the takedowns without doing any damage.  Rua was able to get back to his feet both times.  The second time, Rua hit Machida with a right hand that dropped Machida.  Rua pounced and hit Machida with about ten unanswered shots, and Machida went out cold as the referee comes in to save Machida.  Shogun Rua is the new UFC Light Heavyweight Champion.
