I could see Johny winning the 3rd as well (due to the takedown at the end), but I give round 3 to GSP for landing more strikes and getting back up not long after getting taken down.
Johny got screwed no matter how you judge that fight.
I agree, I don't know where the confusion comes on round one. I watched the first round over and over counted every strike, every exchange, octagon control, everything.
There's no objective way you can give round 1 to GSP. It was a close round, but a close round that very clearly went to Johnny.
I think the thing that confuses people, is that GSP started the round strong, and ended the round strong, but most of the offense happened in the middle of the round.
GSP did not win a single exchange from 3:38 - 2:05.
JH won 7 out 11 exchanges in the round.
