if you think any of those decisions were bad you don't know how to score a fight. I'm surprised anyone even thinks Palhares won round 2. He had one submission attempt and did nothing else the whole fight except dive in head first from 5 feet away.

Dan escaped and he controlled the entire fight, including the other 4 and a half minutes in round 2.

STFU cuz u clearly were not watching the same fight that everyone else was watching, Henderson dominated him from start to finish with the exception of a few failed submission attempts that Palhares tried to do.

So next time when a fight is on your tv actually watch it instead of posting messages that makes you sound like a complete jerk-off

Yep every body love Dan even though they didn't even promote his fight and most of the people in the USA don't know him that well but we all just love him so much. I guess thumping the guys head all night won't win ya the fight.

idk how somebody can scoop somebody and drop them flat on their back and not win a round or almost break a guys leg and also not win a round so in my opinion rousimar got screwed very badly just because everybody loves dan henderson

and btw
henderson will NEVER beat anderson silva
so all the people talking about him getting a title shot are just plain stupid
and if he does get a shot
i feel sorry for the poor bastard



Hendo dominated the fight from start to finish. One leg lock attempt doesn't win you a round where almost every single take down you shoot is stuffed and then you're punished for it. I don't know how you saw Rousimar getting screwed... Dan handled him from start to finish... I think Matt Brown got a raw deal.. even though by normal judging Kim did get two take downs and inflicted most of the damage (that one elbow lol) durring that third round. Also you could score the first round for Kim because he was on Brown's back the entire time and very nearly got the choke. Henderson is one of the few people who has a chance.. not saying he will win, but he does have a chance against Anderson Silva. I really wouldn't mind seeing a rematch. But the one thing i DO agree with you is i feel sorry for ANYONE who has to face Anderson Silva.




Firstly, Hendo won the fight comfortably. No doubt about that decision.
Although, I picked Toquinho, I can't argue against that decision.
Secondly, I don't see how Matt Brown got a raw deal. He lost the fight pretty clearly in my opinion. They traded a 10-9 each rounds 1 and 2, and Kim took 3.
Crowd booing is ridiculous, but not as pathetic as Joe Rogan acting up and playing to the crowd. Anyone (including Jogan) who gave the 3rd to Brown, don't know their ass from a hole in the ground.

The closest decision was Jucao losing to Chonan.
But it was a close fight so you can see it either way

There is no need for this thread, there were no bad decisions at UFC 88.





I agree. I have not seen the Pelegrino fight yet, but I thought the final decision was the right one on the other fights.

I voted Brown/Kim.

But upon further investigation I discovered that 2 of the 3 judges have a background in judging rodeos.

This explains how Kim "rode" his way to victory.










(I'm sure Kim was on Brown's back well past the 8 sec mark on several occasion's before being bucked off)

Really? If Kim/Brown wasn't a bad decision could you explain how you scored it for Kim?

Kim's most effective technique all night:

well, that's a more dominant position and scored the rounds for him, Brown only had the audience on his side on a classic not-well known fighters USA vs. "other country" match ans walking out to Charlie Daniel's "The devil went down to Georgia", Kim won clearly, go see that fight again.

Kim won round 1 with ground control and submission attempts, Brown won round two with better striking and effective damage and then Kim won round 3 with 2 take downs and some decent GnP that opened up a cut on Brown. Kim wins 29-28...it was no coincidence that the only judge to score it for Brown was Cecil Peoples...
