To everyone saying Schaub was not robbed -PBP Meta-data

I know a lot of people dislike Schaub, and his performance was not impressive, but you should probably check your prejudices before claiming Arlovski as the rightful winner. I cannot find a single 'professional' commentator that agrees with the decision.

Sherdog - all 3 scored it for Schaub
MMAweekly - 30-27 Schaub
MMA Junkie - 30-27 Schaub
Bloody Elbow - 30-29 Schaub (with 2 10-10 rds.. which they admitted to be the first time they ever scored a fight this way)
Bleacher Report - 30-27 Schaub.

These are the only websites that I check often for play by plays... But if anyone wants to deep dive and find me someone that scored it for Arlovski.. heres your chance.

Judging is subjective. I didn't see the fight, but I've seen plenty that could go either way, and generally, there's no room for complaining about a close fight

Would I have scored it for Schaub? Yes probably

Was it that close/boring/uneventful that it could go either way? Yes.

Could you make an argument for Arlovski winning the first two rounds? Yeah probably.

So do I care that Schaub lost? No, because they both lost and we lost too. Garbage fight.

Wasn't a good fight but I had Schaub winning that fight.

30-27 for either one of them is nothing short of a bad joke. Neither did anything, and nothing happened in round 1&2 to suggest Schaub soundly won either of them.

WHen you look at the Poll that was just posted tho that has 2-1 votes for Arlovski over Schaub and its 7-0 from MMA writers for Schaub.. it says something

**In my opinion the best fight score was from Bloody elbow. 10-10 and 10-8 are effective tools for judges that should be used way more often. 30-29 Schaub. This decision is as bad or worse than Sanchez Pearson

When nothing significant happens the judging criteria is octagon control
