This is FOTN and I have no idea who won that Round.

This can't last 4 more Rounds, can it?

OSP has a bigger badonkadonk than Tyson Griffin.

Round 2 was all Glover. Both guys are still dangerous though.

That's 2-0 for glover. I can't stand the way osp is fighting here kind of frustrating to watch. Going for takedowns that have zero chance of completing and only throwing single strikes.

i don't care if I sound like a dick. That is some stupid fighting from OSP he looks so green for having 25 MMA fights.

Via Fightmetric...

For the 3rd round, Dariush landed 24/71 headshots, Johnson landed 7/32 headshots

The 2nd round, Dariush landed 17/52 headshots, Johnson landed 15/50 headshots

The 1st round, Dariush landed 11/46 headshots, Johnson landed 10/51 headshots

For getting dropped, Dariush lost the first round. Some of Dariush's headshots during the fight were knees, and he definitely held the kick advantage. Johnson threw more punches overall, but only 38% of his strikes landed to the head opposed to 69% of Dariush's successful strikes being to the head, practically twice as many. Most of those were jabs, but good jabs, and some were knees.

Johnson threw more punches, but most missed and most that landed were to the body, and in the second half of the fight a lot of times when Johnson was winging his punches he was stopped in his tracks shortly thereafter with those good jabs. Most of Dariush's strikes also missed, but most were to the head.

X Factors...

-Dariush had much more life left in him in the final round.
-Dariush kept the threat of a takedown relevant, but didn't land any. That might be a case of octagon control vs aggression, with Johnson controlling where the fight took place. It also could have been part of Dariush's strategy to keep Johnson from getting too comfortable on his feet.
Johnson dropped Dariush but wasn't able to capitalize because Dariush was up before he even stopped moving from getting dropped.

I had no idea who had won, and was prepared for either fighter to take it, but after viewing the stats and reviewing the fight, I think the right fighter won.

There wasn't much significant in the co-main, after watching replays Johnson had a lot of wasted motion, and I totally understand how two out of three judges seen it different than me. Diego would have won all three rounds.
