The Dragon Has Been Slain

UFC 113 was heartbreaking for many of us especially for my brother.  He worships Lyoto Machida with equal passion as I have for George St-Pierre.  I was hoping the Dragon would still remain undefeated but I have got to give it to Shogun Rua for acquiring the ability to find his opponent's weakness, the skill to execute his annihilation game plan that cemented a well deserved UFC light heavyweight champion belt.  Not only did he beat the Dragon, he literally had slain him showing to all of us that in mma no one is unbeatable nor invincible and that he is now truly a full fledged champion.
Also do allow me to express my utter disgust over the actions of Paul Daley after the end of his fight with Josh Koscheck.  That punch he threw despite the fact that round 3 was over was just indicative of how much of a lousy sore loser he is.  MMA may be brutish in many ways than one but it is never a venue for you to unleash your animosity and lack of discipline.  I don't like Koscheck but at the end of the day you still are supposed to be a man of sports who should know the basics of sportsmanship and professionalism.  That is elementary Daley!  Baboo!
