St.Pierre's post fight image controversy. Wake up peeps!

A lot of hay has been made out of GSP post fight image after the fight with Hendricks


It seems to me that people suffer from amnesia and need to be reminded about everything. This is how GSP face looks like after every fight. The guy bruises and cuts easily. It's just the way he is. It was just like the BJ Penn 1 fight, where BJ said, "I won the fight, look at his face." WTF? It just amazes me when people use this as a deciding factor to judge a fight. Now I don't blame people who think Hendricks did enough to win, hell I was one of them. I am also logical enough to realize how close that fight was and that the hoopla over the judging was way overblown. No body can deny that rounds 3 and 5 belonged to the champ, and round 1 was very close. I don't understand why people can't accept this. Instead they keep pointing to St. Pierre's face after the fight.

Well let me just show you some of St. Pierre's post fight faces

St. Pierre after condit fight, nobody thought he was even close to loosing


St. Pierre's face after Diaz fight, nobody thought he lost


St. Pierre face after Shields fight,


St. Pierre face after Penn 1 fight


I post this cause I recently saw meme's of st.pierre pics that said things like "this is how a winner looks like?" It's ridiculous and hoping that people come to their senses after a week from the fight.

Yea you can keep saying that the media gave the first round to Hendricks but 1, it doesn't change the the fact that people use his post fight face image.
2, even if they thought Hendricks did enough in round 1 to win, still was a close one. They had the same amount of strike 19-18 and GSP had the take down. My point is that it is not the robbery that a lot of people are crying about. I think a lot of the people who picked Hendricks wining the 1st round had a bias about the fact that he did so well against GSP compared to their expectations. The same thing that happened with Gust and Jones fight. It still doesn't mean that a round was not close.
