It's absolutely ridiculous! Jason Brilz completely dominated Lil Nog the first 2 rounds and then the 3rd round was more even. But Jason Brilz clearly won that fight. I'm completely baffled. What the hell are the judges doing during the time that they're supposed to be paying attention to these fights!?

probably sleeping or playing tic tac toe. he did get robbed. the good part was that even though he lost, everyone still saw that fight including dana white. we all know now what brilzs is capable of and what lil' nog isnt. win or lose that fight was really good for brilz career and real bad for lil' nog's.

I scored it a draw. That first round was too close to call for me.

I thought he was robbed as well but the conspiracy theory's posted on some of the other forums are a testament to stupidity, glad they are against the TOS here.

I had it a draw. 10-10 first round, obvious 10-9 Brilz in the second and an unarguable 10-9 Nog in the third.

The first round brilz had a takedown, and also got stuffed twice. Nogueria has a takedown and didnt get stuffed at all. And the striking was dead even, Nogueria landed the better shots and Brilz landed the Best shot. Isnt that the epitome of a 10-10 round?

I had it a draw as well. A ton of people are throwing the word "dominated" around way too loosely. Anderson Silva dominated Forrest Griffin. Brilz did not dominate Nog

I thought the fight was pretty even, too. I actually gave a slight edge to Nog.

Perhaps I'll have to go watch it again. I never really questioned during the fight that Lil' Nog would win but maybe I was being swayed by the fact that I had picked Nog. I just felt that minute for minute Nog was landing more shots and getting more scrambles. Brilz definitely had some hard shots and submission attempts, though.

I agree that it was hard to call but I think the first went just a bit more in for lil nogs favor. I think the second round was so decisive for Brilz that it almost makes you forget the first round. Good fight but I think the judges just saw scored the first and third to Nog.

Eiteher way win or lose this fight brilz showed he isnt no push over and deserves respect from the mma world, and dont think this should change peoples opinion about lil nog alot of times that what happends when u face a guy u really dont know much about and stepped up on short notice i do think however nog should train a lil harder and watch footage on his oppnents cause if he comes in just like he did saturday when him and forrest fight it will be one long ass night for lil nog , even though he lost this was a morale victory for brilz seeing and now knowing what he can do against the elite of the light heavyweight division, i think next fight people wont doubt him as much and give him hte respect he deserves

I gave the edge to Nog but just slightly.
It was a super close fight both ways. To me it was one of those fight that no matter who wins someone is getting screwed over.

I had it a draw as well, maybe with a slight edge to Nogueira (since if I had to call the first round, I'd call it for him).

I think Brilz seems robbed since he was able to dominate a round in a way that Nogueira was unable to.

I felt that Brilz won the first round and absolutely dominated the second, but he definitely was a little worn by the third. The favored fighter usually gets the close rounds and that's just the way it is. Sucks.

I picked Lil Nog to win, so I'm not even being biased. Every one of my friends jaws dropped when they read the winner was Lil Nog because the fight we saw definitely didn't belong to him in our opinion.

After watching the fight again on Sunday with a clear head...I'm not really surprised that Lil' Nog walked away with the victory...razor thin decision!
