Newly minted UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson (28-6 MMA, 3-0 UFC) made his first successful title defense, finishing strong in a five-round championship bout with PRIDE titleholder Dan Henderson (22-6 MMA, 2-1 UFC). The performance earned the charismatic “Rampage” a unanimous-decision victory — and the title of the world’s undisputed champion — at yesterday’s UFC 75 event in London, England

In what may be remembered as one of the year’s most controversial fights, “The Ultimate Fighter 3” winner Michael Bisping (14-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC) won a split decision over former castmate and bitter rival Matt Hamill (3-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC

Hamill won that fight hands down. Bisping got a wrestling and boxing lesson 101. Bisping did gain some momentum for the final round, but Hamill still dominated.

This was easily the worst decision in recent memory. Hamill won, not even close.

What a ****** up call that was, I was waiting for Vince McMahan to storm out and smash Dana over the head with a chair!!! What fight were these judges watching Hammil clearly won two rounds and you could make an argument that he one the third as well....... the UFC wants to push a certain guy to look like the babyface(Bisbing) and then have the crowd and the rest of the world think this heal (Hammil) come out to borne in the USA . after that fight who was the heal bisbing knows he did not win that fight and his comments after that fight were something I would expect from HHH!..... Hammil is the man and what a great fighter to do all that he does with his handicap WAR THE HAMMER!!!!

occasionally you'll see a ref be reluctant to stop a fight, or stop one too quickly in the interest of one of the fighters.. whether or not this is planned out or a bad judgement call by the refs is one thing.. but to watch a fight which when broken down shows clear domination of 2 if not 3 rounds by one fighter, and watch the judges award a win to the 'home town hero', ridiculous. My understanding of it is that judges are appointed by a 3rd party, and the ufc has no control over who judges the bouts. So to blame dana white, or the ufc for this makes no sense, but dana white and the ufc need to remedy the situation. First, Dana needs to make an public statement letting fans know how the judging system works, and how that fight was scored in bispings favour. If that cant be done in a way that makes any form of sense, then he needs to let people know that he himself doesnt understand the decision and that hamill was as gracious in defeat as bisping was arrogant. To truly restore the credibility of the ufc, he needs to launch an investigation into this decision, showing that the ufc sincerely believes that the best fighter should win the fight. If decisions can be fixed and remedied in the olympics, then they can in the ufc as well. British fans will understand an overturned decision if its the right one, the british market will not suffer as much as the entire fan base will if this situation is not dealt with properly

yeah i dont think its the ufc or dana whites fault

its not the first decision people didnt like


i was going for bisping to win by tko in round 2, and after seeing what matt hamill did i was willing to accept the loss



no matter what there will be some people who think bisping won and im not gonna flame them for their opinion.

i do think some people that saw the decision before they saw the fight had a mind set of bisping winning from the get go though, but that is just personal opinion

You could see how surprised Bisbing's family was when he was announced the winner. Like they won the lottery. Hamill was a class act in defeat and Bisbing will soon get his...

Yeah Bisping wasn't very humble after the win, then again neither was Cheick Kongo. At least Kongo clearly won 2 rounds, although I thought he should've been penalized for the low blows (Big John warned him, later on he did it, three times, including as Big John already started seperating them LOL)

Bisping will be good at 185

Hamill won......!! I don't care what anyone says. They need to change how bouts are scored or something, because Hamill got screwed.
Part of me thinks they want to build their TUF guy up, blah blah blah. I don't know but that was a rip off........I'm glad Hamill was deaf so he couldn't hear Bruce announce the ridiculous decision.
