Pat Berry gives Antoni Hardonk a hard kick to the arm.
UFC 104 invaded the Southland on 10/24 with a title fight at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Brazilians Shogun Rua and Lyoto Machida, the top two strikers in the world, battled it out in front of 16,000 fans, each giving it their best. Machida emerged victorious--however, it was a disappointment as many of the fans believed it was actually Rua who had defeated Machida. Fans, of course, booooed the decision. But the night featured nearly four hours of fights including a KO by Anthony Johnson. Joe Stevenson defeated Spencer Fisher, Chael Sonnen over Yushin Okami and Cain Velasquez over Ben Rothwell. The night's festivities would not be complete without a barrage of celebrities including Mr. and Mrs. Kutcher, the cast of Entourage, Michael Clark Duncan, Janet Jackson, and will.i.am.
