    He did not win the first Thompson fight.

    He did beat Maia though.

    You can argue that Thompson could have won using their bad scoring system but not many people objected to the decision because Thompson got dropped hard and nearly submitted which was the most interesting and aggressive part of the entire fight.



    Time stamped. For anyone who needs a refresher.

    I don't need a refresher, TWood literally did not win the fight, Thompson won 3 rounds and it was scored a 47-47 tie.

    Ah right. I had remembered him winning because he had retained the belt. Your totally right that he didn't technically win but regardless he still kept the belt so it was basically as good as a win.

    It may count as a title defense ... but I don't know, that's an interesting question. But officially, Thompson won 3 rounds in the first fight, and it was a draw.

    I think it is NOT a defense. Wish I knew the actual rules around it.

    Man since when did bisping become a world beater, the one big fight he finally won was against rockhold.every other fightthat would have put him in prime position for a ts he lost.

    Struggled in the past as in Hendricks? Not even he could KO GSP while he was doing it for fun and likely roided up in that fight. Woodley’s TDD won’t hold up, GSP would be the best wrestler he’s fought. You can’t say the same other way round

    I think both are two of the greatest legends and P4P fighters ever in the UFC. I can't help but think there are many others like me.

    It is not a defense. He retained the title. Same as when there was a draw between Frankie and Maynard. Frankie was credit with retaining the title, not with defending the title.

    A champ needs to win to get credited with a defense. If they draw they just retain the belt. Essentially, they run it back and do it again.
