Guys, i have watched this fight six times over and scored it on three occasions.
I agree with the outcome of round 1 & 2, hill defenately ticked all the boxes to get 10-9 in the first and again, Emerson did about enough to get a 10-9 in the second. As for the third, i cant believe it was scored what i would believe to be a 10-9 to hill declaring him the winner. Corey's shots were weak, only on counter attacks from emerson, they did no damage in the third. Although i believe corey pushed the pace, he did nothing and thats because he has no experience in this sport, he probebly didnt believe he'd be in the third round, win or loose.
The only thing that stands out from that third round was the thunderous kicks to coreys legs from emerson, which for me, scored Emerson a 10-9 victory.
Hill stalked emerson in the third but it was emerson with the attacks of punches and kicks, corey just tried to counter without really landing any.
If that had been joe louzon in their instead of emerson would he of finished hill, i think he would of, especially in that third round when corey was gassed.
Dana was wrong with what he said, when your already beat and outta the competition, gifted another shot and you dont finish your opponant, you blew it.
The only thing is, when neither fighter can finish a fight within the three rounds it has to go to the scorecard.
Hill won round 1. Emerson won round two.
I believe from what i scored, Emerson won round 3, therefor emerson should be in the semi finals.
