Overall they didn't do horribly. I've seen way worse from them in the past. The only real issue I can remember was the 30-27 scoring in the Sonnen fight.

The judging wasnt bad in my opinion. i think Bisping took round 2 so the 30-27 seemed insane. Bisping didnt impress me so much as something didnt seem right with Sonnen. he looked exhausted or sick imo.

Hopefully he and Silva are healthy for the rematch!

oh and im not voting because i dont think it was that black or white.

I definitely take issue with the judging. IMO, Shane Roller won against Michael Johnson. And I say that because that's what I believe, not because I picked him. He got jacked. Rounds two and three were his.

Bisping-Sonnen I need to rewatch when I get home, because I was getting ready from work. But when I looked over, I saw a lot of Bisping employing the Chael/ Randy tactic. Again, I didn't get to watch closely, so I will do that again tomorrow.

I dunno, I may just be a little bummed because I did terrible on this card. I at least made good change on the PG and IRL. Shocking considering my 5-5 with 37 points. I have to watch this card over on my days off.

Kind of a loaded question. I highly doubt there are any cards that have zero mistakes so the only other choice is that they made significant mistakes. Problem is, when I think of significant mistakes, I think of mistakes that change the outcome of a fights result in a negative way. In both of the decisions in question, the judges got the victor right so how the points added up was a mute point other than just proving that there are some people judging that probably need more training or a different profession.


I guess it all depends on your definition of "significant" There were definately some obvious mistakes but they didn't change the outcome of the fights either way.



Edit: I have not seen the Roller/Johnson fight so I can't comment on the accuracy of the judging in that fight.

Are you a fan, and if so does it get you butthurt in cases like this?

I only ask because he's been in quite a few controversial decisions and me not being a fan, I was curious if you feel he comes out more often on the winning side or losing side of his fights that some consider controversial..

The Hammer? pshhh, nobody, INCLUDING Rivera, thought that was controversial.

Bisping has earned every win on his record, nothings been handed to the guy. Its really a shame when he gets the shaft so close to a title shot. It's an injustice really when you think about it.........

I'll answer like a grown-up Kpro.

I think it evens itself out over time. Any other country in the world and Hammill gets the decision, but i also thought Bisping did enough to get the W against rashad.

Just my opinion

I guess they did alright once I saw Weidman was changed to UD.

Uncle Dana had Bisping winning the fight with the first two rounds, as did I. He controlled more and did more damage.
