How the hell did only one judge give Castillo a 10-8?

If anything round one was a 10-7, Danny almost KOed him more than once, Barboza grabbed the fence twice to avoid getting choked out and Castillo spent more of the round on top.

yeah it was frustrating, but sadly - I knew they wouldn't give Danny a 10-8...But at the same time, I think more weight needs to be placed on the last round so I'm ok with Edson getting the win. It's just scary that the judges can't score a round properly.

How the hell did they miss Barboza's 10-8 in the 2nd round?

I thought it was a draw too. The scoring always sucks in MMA so that's nothing new. What bugs me is watching fighters benefit from cheating like that. I don't know if Castillo would have finished the choke but the fence grabs were blatant.

I'm okay with Barboza winning but the scores were fucked.

It should have been either 28-28 draw, or 28-27 Barboza if you give him a 10-8 round 2.

If we go by half points, it was 10-8.5

If we go by 20 point system it was 20-13.5

If we score the fight as a whole....barboza wins

The system is joke, but the right fighter won IMO

Just because Rogan goes nuts over leg kicks doesn't make round two a 10-8. It was a very clear win for Barboza in round 2, but not a 10-8. Castillos was an EASY 10-8 fight was an obvious draw.

I don't know how I feel about the decision, but round 1 was a 10-8 for Castillo IMO. I don't really disagree with Barboza winning, but I wouldn't have been mad at a draw. I thought Edson definitely did more to win the fight overall in rounds 2 and 3, though.
