I nearly died when Silvas knee landed!
First UFC event I have attended and the main event was off the chain. Probably the best fight I have seen live and I have been to plenty of boxing matches. Still don't understand how Silva didn't get a 10-8 round for round 3? Making it a draw?
Maybe the judges didn't want to reward him for striking Bisping when he was distracted, even though it was The Count's own fault. A knockdown doesn't automatically make a 10-8 round like in boxing or kickboxing scoring either.
Yes, I know a knockdown isn't an automatic 10-8 but that was a heavy, heavy one. I mean everyone thought Bisping was out, people were leaving the arena! Maybe also the judges weren't sure if the knee came after the bell?
10-8's are usually given when one fighter does very well while the other fighter does next to nothing. Bisping was landing pretty well that round until the flurry, so a 10-9 is normal.
Just finished watching last night. I had no action on this event.
I feel for Rivera bettors. That was a robbery. 1st and 2nd were clearly Rivera's.
Also, Leon Roberts and Neil Hall should be shamed for their anti-grappling actions. This is MMA, not muay thai. Breaking up Nakamura's clinch is inexcusable. Threatening to break the clinch against the cage while Pickett is landing hard knees is inexcusable. Threatening to stand Pickett up when he has full side control and a shoulder pressure head/arm choke is inexcusable.
I also agree with EZ and others that Goddard was too aggressive in the Grant fight. He disrupted the flow of the fight. Still, Goddard is getting too much shit when Leon Roberts and Neil Hall are the real perpetrators.
Finally, I don't understand the hate that Herb Dean is getting for the main event. I feel he did exactly what he was supposed to do. Dean has screwed up plenty of times (McGregor-Mendes, Rockhold-Weidman, Rousey-McMann) but this wasn't one of them.
I agree that it should have been 10-8.
I agree I had it 47-47
But it was better for me that it wasn't ...
But split/majority would've been better! Just one 10-8 from one judge would've made it majority
