Personally im not even so confident rampage won the first round that everyone gave him
Other then a big shot at the end of the round forrest controlled picked him apart
Im not sure why everyone is mad, even rampage admits he lost that fight
Big shot, and had him down and controlled for a good minuet, other then that the round was about even so why woulden't you score it for him? Also what is Rampage supposed to do, say I was robbed, look like a poor loser and be booed out of the arena? I garentee he felt he won that fight. The fans there showed how they felt about that decision by booing it. Fight should have either been a razor sharp decision for Rampage or a draw IMO.
I couldn't agree more with this. Rampage said in his post fight interview he thought he won the fight. I just have to keep hoping they take the judges away from the crowd....that and judges that come from a committee of fighters that actually have been in a fight or of refs. Sadly I don't think anything will help so I play a sad violin.
I gotta disagree. Even though rampages shots had bad intentions in them forrests shots were landing more. Those leg kicks he had been throwing in the first round paid off by the 2nd round as everyone saw
So i mean i can understand if you think he won the first round because of the punch and controlling him on the ground for the last minute. I just dont agree with you that the fight was even before that punch that took forrest to the ground
If he was really just being graceful about the loss and thought he actually won then maybe he should of came through with his promise and not of let the fight go 5 rounds.
Forrest wasnt standing in there and trading with him but he certainly was being nowhere near as elusive as machida. It seemed to me that forrest was engaging a lot more with his combos while rampage sat back in a few rounds and waited to land a knockout counter punch.
Forrest shots were mostly for points but they were landing. Rampage was swinging for the fences and when they landed they did damage. Forrest just did a great job at defending a lot of those shots. When i looked at replays after the rounds forrest did a great job of ducking and moving away from punches that looked like they were landing in the heat of the fight
