mmaweekly decides fights now? It was close, had it for Gomi, but close, not a robbery

If you thought this was a good call you're outing yourself as someone who doesn't know anything at all about fighting just my opinion.

I'm aware i'm not letting him get away with it though. One thing I know to be true is one man can not award a split dec. Its not possible. So every time I see it no matter who posts it I'm calling them out on it. When I joined this site I got my ass handed to me and I learned you don't post shit that makes you look like a jackass. Its what made me love this place.

I don't know why but that rant just added to my high I'm having right now after watching a legend and one of my idols win. Wanderlei "Fuckin" Silva.

Anyway, I'm thinking when he said that he had split decision he meant that's what he picked here on the PG. That's the only logical explanation.

I noticed that Florian (commentating) mostly avoided mentioning Sanchez's punches, including the one that wobbled Gomi. I guess the judges weren't listening to the ringside commentators I think it was a very close fight though, and both fighters seemed unusually apprehensive.

The stats have Gomi throwing and landing more strikes in every round, but Sanchez with the takedowns. I had both fighters landing an equal amount of what I would call significant strikes. I honestly didn't know who the winner was going to be, and would have even accepted a draw.

When reviewing a fight, after watching it outright, I prefer to focus solely on one fighter and only pay attention to that one fighter's punches and performance... Then watch the fight again, focusing solely on the other fighter. That helps take away a lot of the bias by forcing yourself to acknowledge everything that each fighter does.
