LAS VEGAS – It just wouldn't be a UFC pay-per-view event if we didn't get to enjoy at least one hotly contested decision, right?

At Saturday night's UFC 132 event in Las Vegas, that honor fell to Dennis Siver (19-7 MMA, 8-4 UFC) and Matt Wiman (13-6 MMA, 7-4 UFC), who battled toe-to-toe for 15 minutes in a back-and-forth affair.

All three judges ultimately awarded the victory to Siver, and UFC president Dana White said after the event that he agreed with the call. However, White admitted UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta – not to mention mop-haired teen pop star Justin Bieber – believe Wiman may have been jobbed.

In my opinion Siver won the fight going by a round by round basis.

I thought Wiman won but I may have been swayed by takedowns and damge.

"According to FightMetric numbers, Siver outlanded his opponent 38-9 in total strikes in the opening round. In the third, the German striker again earned the edge in total punches and kicks 47-6. Shockingly, even in the second frame – a round clearly won by Wiman after slicing open his opponent with vicious ground-and-pound – Siver actually outstruck his opponent 43-19. At the end of three rounds, Siver landed 128 total strikes to Wiman's 34, and he held the edge in FightMetric's "significant strikes" category, 31-26."

Wow, I didn't realize that.


"I'm not going to make these guys stay in there and do an interview when they just lost," White said. "[Wiman] felt like he won, and he was upset. We've seen it with lots of guys. We saw Forrest Griffin run out of there. Sean Sherk ran out of the ring and ran down the Strip barefoot and no shirt.

-I agree that fighters should be allowed to show their disappointed after a loss, but what Wiman did was disrespectful and childish. He jerked his hand from the ref and started throwing his clothes around like a child. He's a professional, and he should act like it.

Good point, he should have acted more professional. Either way, I thought it was a pretty clear-cut win for Wiman.

bango.

i did think the judges might go the other way based on the blood but 2 of three rounds belong to siver. justin is wrong and i will be pointing out his lack of clarity to my daughters.

the guy is a baby, siver whooped em in rounds 1 and 3, all he did was put him in against the cage and siver was punching him while he held him there. more punches and more damage in rds 1 and 3 and wiman caused more damage in rd 2. 29-28 i don't think u can argue that.

Siver won round 1 and 3, though I thought he was gonna get a split decision... I'm very happy that they got the decision right

justin beiber's opinion on the fight is somewhere in the range of of next to ja rule's opinion during 9/11

what the hell does justice beaver know about mma.

It was all about that 3rd round, very close.

1 was Siver, even though Rogan thought Wiman might have stole it with a TD with a couple of seconds left. Um no I don't think so, Siver was winning that round.

2 was Wiman.
