The second fight was pretty much a blowout.
In a nutshell, what most people are saying is that the fight was close. but it should have been at least a draw (rounds 1&2 for MM and round 3 a 10-8 for Ian) or a victory for Ian if you scored any of the first two rounds for him - which is perfectly plausible since it was so close.

But there's no doubt that if this was a draw (as this was supposed to be), Ian had the momentum and MM was tired, disheartened and more importantly, he was completely drained. Just look at both fighters after the fight.

I find it hilarious that some people claim the second fight shows the MM victory means that somehow confirmation of MM's victory in the first fight. This is absolute stupid.

Each fight has a story of it's own, and one does not justify or confirm the other.

Heck, look above and see that the vast majority voted for Ian!

I don't remember this fight that well so I'll watch it again later before I vote but It seems to come down to how you score round 1 and 3.

Was round 3 really a 10-8 round? I remember McCall out wrestling him and getting back mount to land some punches but I think how pumped McCall was getting makes people think he was doing much more than he really was. I'll have to watch it again and see what was going on in the rest of the round as well.

You have weird way for scoring fights.
Nah, you just see things differently than I do is all. I don't call him slamming MM down "doing nothing" like you do, nor am I going to over exagerrate him being dominated in the first round either. It was a close round, and I felt he was the aggressor overall. The third round he wiped the mat with DJ.
