    It sort of reminds me of Guida/Maynard and Reem/Werdum. Even though the strike count was close, the story of the fight was that one fighter put a lot of effort in avoiding the fight. Dodson fought a smart fight but I dont think any marginal edge in striking made up for his behaviour in the cage in Rds 2, 3, and 4. Compare this to Diaz Condit which is an example of a fight where a fighter backed up excessively but was the deserved winner because he still out landed his opponent by a large margin.

    The scoring criteria is pretty vague (not a bad thing) and the application of the criteria is subjective so controversies like this won't be going away anytime soon.

    He seems pretty unbiased about the fight, but its nice to see him not holding back regarding Lineker's slim chances of beating Cruz or TJ without marked improvement

    are you talking about this clay guida?

    i thought that lineker and his aggression won him rounds 2, 3 and 4 but going by physical damage comparing these two fights is discrediting the defense of dodson, who made lineker look foolish at times

    imo this was more like canelo/lara, also a fight where the decision was contested, except that erisladry lara did not land 50 percent of his punches and ended up going to the hospital to get stitches caused by a canelo uppercut whereas dodson showed little if any damage and inflicting more on lineker
