Hendricks' round 2 and 4 not nearly as decisive as Hendricks fans making it out to be

Round 2 - Hendricks landed the uppercut and GSP's right leg buckles as he stepped back but as Hendricks comes steam rolling in GSP is still trying to counter, Hendricks continued to land 3 possibly 4 hard shots in the clinch which would have (If GSP was really that rocked) put him out. GSP survives without even being knocked down and the rest of the round was even as Hendricks' shots started to get weaker.

Round 4 - GSP slips, Hendricks jumps on him and cuts him with a few short elbows. GSP gets back up and Hendricks doesn't do anything significant for the rest of the round. Striking could have even favored Georges for the rest of round 4. Also worth noting that on Hendricks' failed TD attempt George had him in a position to knee his face in but Hendricks resorted to the hand on ground rule which is a pretty pansy rule.

Please post gifs of the whole sequence of GSP's leg buckling and Hendricks jumping on him or any other gifts that prove that Hendricks "dominated" GSP.

The reason Hendricks fans think he won is because 1) the fight was competitive, which is so rare in a GSP fight, 2) GSP's face showed damage (which it always does), and 3) because GSP's leg buckled after a Hendricks uppercut and Hendricks landed a couple more hard shots (which didn't drop GSP or anything..).

Some Hendricks fans even said rounds should have been 10-8, which is absurd.

The fight could have gone either way but I believe 1,3 and 5 went to Georges. 1 is arguable but 2 and 4 are in no way dominant rounds for Hendricks either, he did when them though.

As people re-watch the fight I believe more will agree with GSP winning and realize just how close of a fight it is but in no way was it a robbery of Hendricks.

Nah there's no way George got the 1st, he was getting tagged plenty in that round. If you really have to make a case for him, he got 3-5.

Hendricks had a takedown, stuffed takedowns, and outstruck GSP in round 1. Since that's the only round that was different on the scorecards, that's the only one that matters. There's no real logical criteria to scoring the 1st for GSP. Therefore Hendricks won.

No other round matters. The judges all scored the rest the same.

It's not uncommon for fighters to have memory issues after a fight, especially after 25 minutes of stand up.

"Tagged plenty in first round".. With what, those knees to the thighs?

"Doesn't sound like a winner to me" ... Bruce Buffer saying "...and STILL", sure sounded like we had a winner there bud.

If any round was a 10-8 it would of been round 5 where Hendricks literally landed nothing and did nothing but play defensive.

Hendricks had a takedown in round 1? Ok, but GSP had a better take down with a sub attempt that people are saying Hendricks tapped to. Hendricks landed nothing significant and neither did GSP.
