Also I don't know how it hasn't been mentioned yet! It was by far the most blatant tap to have ever taken place in the UFC and MMA in general! Randy vs Tito! Everyone saw Randy top out on Titos but!

I would actually have to disagree with everyone on the Bas VS Randlemen decesion.
I would really consider that one of the best decesions in UFC history.
Kevin got his takedowns at will,but he only went for them after Bas landed a liver shot that hurt him bad.
.
The biggest advance Kevin made from the top posistion was to smear Bas' blood in his face.Compliments of Mark Colemans coaching.

All Randlemen did for the most part on top was stall,while Bas worked from the bottom.
Big John said that was the sole reason why he let them stay on the ground for so long. Not because Randlemen was advancing his posistion from the top,but because Bas was working from the bottom.

I think takedowns should beyond a shadow of a doubt score points,but if you do little else afterwards then its all somewhat in vain.
Especialy if your opponent is working from the bottom.

I thought Jardine/Bonnar was easily Jardine's but picked poorly.

The way Sakuraba lost in the opening round of Ultimate Japan is the only time I can think of John McCarthy prematurely ending a fight.

I wasn't a big fan of Jardine/Bonnar either.

Maybe not the worst decision, but definitely an honorable mention would be Tito Ortiz vs Forrest Griffin. It was very close but in most people's minds I think Forrest was robbed.



Tito won that fight FIGHT STATS



Well, that's debatable. Even if you give the 1st round a 10-8, it would still be a draw in my book. the fact that one of the judges gave it to Ortiz with a 30-27 score tells me that the judges were sniffing glue in the parking lot prior to the event.

Edit: Something I don't understand about the fightmetric eval is that on one page is says the fight is rated at a 28-28 draw...while another page says that Tito was the winner. According to their judging of a 10-8 for Tito and 2 29-28's for Forrest, technically they are saying it was a draw, so it doesn't really support the fact that Tito won the fight after all.




it clearly say fight matrix winner: Tito Ortiz at the bottom of the last page

and the stats show Tito landed more overall strikes including more power shots to the head



The fightmetric winner isn't based on the 10 point must system...and based on those rules, which is what the UFC is judged with, it was a draw. See below.

The first fight that came to mind for me was Bisping vs Hamill. Even though I picked Bisping, I felt Hamill should have gotten the nod.

The worst "decision" I would say was the TKO victory of Burn over Johnson via eyepoke, but if we're looking by worst scoring decisions by a trio of judges...probably Bas vs Randleman.



I agree. It was boring on Randleman's part and I love Bas but he didnt win that fight, it's obvious they wanted Bas to win.

What about calling Cote's knee injury a tko for Silva? I don't understand that one. Should it not have been a NC or something? Silva didn't cause the injury. If anything it should have gone to the Bud Light Decal

I don't know if it's because it's fresh in my mind but Matt Wiman/Sam Stout last month seemed much more obvious than Bisping/Hamill.

Wiman took rounds 1 and 3 hands down.

The Bisping/Hamill I could see going either way, I thought Hamill won (did more damage), but on the 10 point must system, I could see it 29-28 either way with Bisping possibly closely pulling rounds 2 and 3.. And the only British judge gave the 30-27 to Hamill.

As far as Forrest/Tito, I had it 28-28, I don't think there's any way Forrest won, but I don't think Tito won either

Jardine/Bonnar was bad too, but I'm sticking with Wiman/Stout

Yeah...I was pretty pissed about Stout winning that fight. The most he did was the second round when he dropped Wiman with that body kick. Otherwise, it was Wiman all day in my book.
