Hamill/Bisping was definitely up there. I'd also have to add in Rua/Jackson match as a close second.

Tito/Griffin wasn't the worst of all time because by UFCs stupid judging/rules (takedowns - even if you don't do anything with them - earn you points,) Tito won that fight. It was close, but I would say Tito won. By those rules. If the fight happened on the street I would say Griffin won because when Tito took Griffin down late in the third, Griffin was the one - from his back - landing the elbows. But the way the UFC judges fights, I don't see anyone ever winning a fight off their back, which is sad.

My vote goes to Rampage/Ninja.

As far as Tito and Forrest, I presonally thought FOrrest won, but I can understand giving it to Tito. It was arguable a 1-8 round for tito in the first, forrest got the second, and in the thrid, forrest landed more strikes, but tito landed some too, the takedown made it a very even round, so it's hard to be mad at that going either way.

Ninja and Rampage was a worse decision, as was vitor and tito...

BUt Yeah, I'd say right now I'd go with Hammill and Bisping. Bisping Lost all 3 rounds in my opinion. Hammil was the agressor and had bisping backing up the whole fight, took bisping down twice in each round, kept landing that Jab at will, and rocked him with a few different hooks. Even if he didn't do alot of damage on the ground, he did Pass the guard into side control and had his back a couple times if I recall. Plus, When bisping got back up, it was becasue hammill let him up, and there were 3 takedownbs where hamill was held down for a minute plus, which counts as Octagon control in my book.

SHould have finished 30-27 in my book. Horrible decision

I personally call it a draw, it seemed Tito got a 8-2 first and second and third to Forrest.

anyone who watches the forrest/ortiz fight without the sound of the announcers and pays attention should have tito winning that fight two rounds to one. it cant be one of the worst decisions if it was right.

Gotta say Hammill, Bisping though, especially because i had all my money on Hammill and him wining UD

Ricco vs Nog.

Forgot to mention I wasn't to happy with the Herring vs. Beloort decision either

That was bad. Pride had a weird way of judging for their fights, but so does the UFC I don't think anyones anywhere near perfected mma judging.

I didn't think Nogueira / Ricco was an off call, Nogueira had some good submission attempts and Ricco didn't do a great deal other than maintain "dominant" position, though is being on top of Nogueira really a dominant position, giving that Nogueira is pretty much amazing off his back?

Tito / Griffin was terrible
Tito / Belfort was also poor
Carlos Newton losing to Daiju Takase was some of the worst judging I've ever seen. Did the judges even watch the fight?!

Definitely not. But do you ever think they will develop a new style of judging?

Hoping they will, I figure if mma keeps going on it current pace they will be forced to.

Are you serious? Sure there is a size difference, but Wanderlei didn't have a problem with it and sure wasn't going to ask for a handicap. He got some good striking, but was uneffective on the ground, and unable to hold down or attack Hunt effectively on the ground, even though Hunt's ground ability was minimal at theat point. Hunt just started to outstrike him, even dropped him with that monster hook. I love Wanderlei, but he lost. Happens to the best.
