In the aftermath of one of the more memorable main events of a major UFC -- Forrest Griffin (Pictures)'s unanimous decision over Quinton Jackson (Pictures) -- the Mandalay Bay Events Center became a maelstrom of reaction Saturday night.

here are some of the fighters take on the fight, and who they believed was the victor.

Frank Shamrock (Pictures): Sorry, I don't watch the UFC.




Good ol' Frank


Gabe Ruediger (Pictures): I watched the fight and thought Forrest won. He was more active and did a great job of sticking to his game plan. I felt it wasn't decisive, but that only comes if you don't allow it to go to the judges. I thought Forrest won but wouldn't have been surprised if [the judges] had Rampage winning instead.


Gabe Ruediger...

who the f*ck cares what he thinks

I sense some jealousy on Frank's part....

The UFC won't take him so he's pouting... oh well it's still hilarious!

Phil Baroni: I don't know how two judges gave Forrest that first round, man. That's some bulls---.

Why would they even ask guys from the fighters camps? lol people say some of us are bias, they more then likely can't be impartial.

Hes just pissed cuz the whole world isn't vegan with him

I met him and I said, kick some ass tomorrow before UFC 83, and he seemed outta it, maybe the cutting weight or summin, but he wanted nothing to do with me. I understand tho, at least he wasn't a dick about it.

And does anyone care what Gabe says?

Danzig is an idiot, "wearing a chain around his neck and acting like he is a thug"

Someone needs to tell Dewey Cooper that it is a 10 pt must system with one man being the victor, 10-10 round? no wonder he only had three MMA fights

what is up with everyone being so willy nilly with 10-8, I do not think most fights will have 10-8 rounds period, especially the 2nd round of this fight, no wonder they are so pissed when they lose by decision or start slouching around when they are losing they do not understand the point system and tghought because they had a moment of dominance that they deserved a 10-8, hiarious

1. A round is to be scored as a 10-10 Round when both contestants
appear to be fighting evenly and neither contestant shows clear
dominance in a round;

2. A round is to be scored as a 10-9 Round when a contestant wins by a
close margin, landing the greater number of effective legal strikes,
grappling and other maneuvers;

3. A round is to be scored as a 10-8 Round when a contestant
overwhelmingly dominates by striking or grappling in a round.

That looked like about as close to a 10 - 8 round as you can get.

Not true. it's also not true that 10-8's never happen...they may be rare, but do happen.

someone weigh in, I listen to old Goldie closely and he says 10 point must system with one fighter being the victor, meaning no 10-10s, and I have barely seen a 10-8 that all three judges called, and that 2nd round would not being normally called 10-8

I can think of a fight with 3 or 4 10-8 rounds. Franklin vs. Loiseau

I think GSP vs Trigg could have had a 10-8 round, but that fight finished so that is moot.

There are also 10-8 rounds when penalty points are incurred.

With all of the disagreements about the fight, the only thing that most people have agreed on is a 10-8 second round. I'd go as far as to say it was actually a textbook example of a 10-8.

10-10 rounds are allowed, though rare. 1 judge scored a 10-10 round somewhere in the Lytle-Koschek fight.

I actually went to wikipedia to vidicate myself and I found this:

"A round that is considered a draw is usually scored as a 10 - 10 round."

So I guess......................

obviously penalty points but I was talking about judges actually awarding 10-8s, I never assume someone would get a 10-8 round and I will have to rewatch those decision and add up the points, I am still pretty skeptical.

Pretty sure there was a 10-6 as well; didn't one judge score it 30-24?

no there wasn't a 10-7 as far as I know, but there were multiple 10-8s. I think one judge scored it 10-8 every round.
