In favor of your winner, by unanimous decision... Mathew Ridgeway!

Mathew Ridgeway is the new lightweight champion!
Mathew Ridgeway seemed lost for words in his post fight interview but he remembered to thank his fans and directed everyone to his website.
The defeated Vladimir Emelienko had this to say: 'Good fight. Glad to lose to someone I respect. I will be cutting this cocksmoker. By the way i didnt realize i had a fight until i was already here'.
