It's still a win though fair and square. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean you can ignore the rules and pretend it doesn't count.

And Gus was a pretty legit loss. His overturned fights don't help his case though..
Pretty much this.

I like Thiago and i was hoping that he would knock Evans out when they fought but he lost that fight fair and square.

A TD is meaningless unless it's a slam or followed by GNP.

A single strike should equate a TD, and Thiago landed way more strikes than Rashad did TD's.

Look. I'm not saying TD alone should win you a fight, because I don't think they should. All I'm saying is they do

Once again, just because you don't agree with it doesn't mean it shouldn't count.

Apparently Shogun won against Gus as well (according to that guy lol).

Rashad got the decision.

Thiago won that fight.

He had serious back problems back then (also in the Machida fight) and had to be carried out of the cage cause his back seized up.

And under the current scoring criteria there's a strong argument for Thiago winning that fight 29-28. Rashad didn't do anything with the TDs and basically just held on for dear life.
