I think it was decided in the 1st.

Seems like the majority of people feel the 2nd and 4th went to Hendricks and the 3rd and 5th went to GSP

According to 2 judges scorecards going into the 5th rd the fight was even so technically GSP winning rd 5 is what won him the fight.

Since it was going in 2-2 for two of the judges, the 5th round technically won him the fight.

But on virtually everyone's scorecards, the winner was based on the first round since the final 4 are pretty clear cut

This is the perfect fight to show how crappy the current judging criteria is.

I thought it would be 2-2 going into the 5th. I just figured they would give GSP the first since he's the champ and it was close.

The 4th should've been 10-8, if the judges knew how to use the scoring system. The first probably should've been 10-10 also. GSP winning the 5th should've made it a draw, or still a loss if the judges scored properly.

Round by round scoring won Georges the fight as far as I'm concerned.

Under Pride judging Hendricks would've won all day... Round by round judging is just dumb.
