Ok guys. Simple question. Calm yourselves & think. Dont rush to Hendricks just bc the fight just happened but dont select another if you feel that way just bc I said that

Gustafsson and Hendricks both deserved wins. They both beat the champs to a pulp and won every area of the game in their respective fights.

The Melendez fight was closer, but he still deserved it too.

I thought Melendez beat Bendo but didnt complain at all with the judging because it wasnt that good of a fight. Melendez didnt take the fight to Ben and let it be pretty much Henderson-Edgar 3. I forget which round was a swing round though.

Gus has a better case because in the first few rounds he was landing the harder shots where Jones was desparately throwing leg kicks because he getting beat to the punch. The only thing is Jones threw alot of leg kicks so if you give Jones any of those first three rounds he won.

Still have to watch the Hendricks-GSP fight.

Definitely Hendricks. Just watched it and he no doubt won 1, 2 and 4. 2nd round GSP battled back to make it interesting but he didnt dominate enough to ignore Hendricks rocking him. 4th round Hendricks won pretty much with that trip and vicious GNP because other then that they were even on the feet I actually feel the first round was the closest swing round because GSP landed some nice head kicks at the end of the round that made it interesting.

Melendez, No doubt in my mind. He was proper robbed in his fight against Henderson.

I think Gus got robbed point blank.


Wow what a year.

Silva lost

And Jones and st Pierre should have.

I scored Gus vs Jones for Jones so I cant pick it. Need to rewatch Melendez vs Bendo to figure out my vote. I remember being very underwhelmed with Benson in that fight & telling my friends he had won a robbery.
I thought Hendricks had 1, 2 & 4.

I thought both Melendez and Gustafsson won (voted Gustafsson) but I am in the minority of people who thought GSP won last night.

If someone asked me "who won the gsp/hendricks fight based on scoring?" Id say "lets watch round 1.
If someone asked me "who got their ass kicked in the gsp/hendricks fight?" Id say GSP

Gus clearly put a beat down on Jones and got screwed so thats my pick

Melendez also got robbed but not as bad as Gus

GSP won imo, but it all depends on how you score the 1st round. I can see either side of it

That's a tough question. I thought all three guys won tbh. I barely remember the Melendez/Bendo fight but I had it 48-47 Gil, I remember the Gus fight and I had it for him 49-46 and last night I thought Hendricks won 48-47. I guess if you look at my scoring Gus was most deserving of a win. I really feel for Hendricks though. Out of these 3 fights he's the guy I wanted to win the most.

I dunno, I'll say Gus.

One thing is for sure though. Something needs to change. We've been saying it for years but seriously, it's disgusting how bad judging is and it's even more disgusting how terrible Keith Kizer is. It's fucking ridiculous how bad this guy is at his job. Just pathetic that this is still going on.

I have trouble responding to this, because it's kind of a loaded question, no offense. All three fights were extremely close, none of which were screw jobs in my opinion.

not really as a loaded question would force you into one kind of answer. All 3 decisions were/are heavily debated, you have the option of picking any of them. The question isn't even about screw jobs, but that is how I am running with it when posting my opinion on it
