    Machida/Shogun I was very close. I scored it for Shogun but I'd need to rewatch.
    Jones/Gustafsson was very close. But I think Jon Jones edged it.
    Penn/Edgar I was very close. I scored it for BJ Penn but I'd need to rewatch.
    TJ/Dom was very close. I scored it for Dominick Cruz but I'd need to rewatch.
    Frankie/Benson fights were both very close. Like most, I scored the first for Benson Henderson and the second for Frankie Edgar. But I'd need to rewatch.
    Bisping/Hendo II was very close but I think Michael Bisping slightly outpointed Dan.
    Diaz/Conor II was close after the first 8 minutes, but Conor McGregor won a clear decision.

    But they were 3 round fights
    Where you're insinuating Sanchez lost all 3 rounds
    Well.. Hendo easily won 3 rounds if not 4 against Bisping
    (It was 4)
    Making it therefore worse

    Check mate

    Machida vs Shogun - Scored it for Shogun, but the fight was close.
    Jones vs Gus - Don't take issue with this result. I thought Jones edged it, Gus let it slip through his fingers by fucking up in the 4th.
    TJ vs Dom - Close fight, but decision was fair.
    Bisping vs Hendo - 48-47 Bisping, the 49-46 scorecard was retarded but aside from that the decision was good.
    Conor vs Nate - 48-47 McG, clear as day. Not particularly difficult to score.

    Surprised GSP vs Hendricks didn't get a mention.

    True but he also beat Cruz.

    I scored it TJ but knew it was a coin flip.

    With the exception of Machida/Shogin I, I think the right person won those matches...

    Honestly, there should be more 10-10 rounds. If you think a round was decided by ONE punch, then unless it resulted in a ktfo, that's a 10-10 round.

    EDIT: 2,3,5

    It has nothing to do with scoring.TJ still landed the hardest shots,did more damage and pushed the pace in that fight.Judging criteria scores these.

    Surprised nobody brought up GSP vs. Hendricks.in general tho i dont get how fights that are so close it's hard to tell who actually won are considered "robberies".a robbery would be Diego Sanchez vs Pearson,or the Bisbing vs Hammil fight.idk but i feel especially if it's for the belt u gotta take it from the champ,so if it's a coin flip i dont mind the champ getting the knod

    Lawlor - Condit.....


    I scored it for Condit....

    Just like TJ vs Dom.....I felt like the guy backing up the whole fight has to outwork his opponent and Lawler didnt....

    Oh my god, don't remind me of this.
    Kampmann is one of my favorite fighters. I was furious after that decision.
