    I guess it all comes down to the second round. I havn't rewatched it but I thought it was a clear WB round, was it not? I mean there was basicly no strikes so then it comes down to octagon control which WB clearly had.

    When I watch MMA, I never score rounds definitively unless it's absolutely obvious. There are many rounds in fights where I look at it as "well this will likely be split among judges". Similarly with potential 10-8 rounds, I often think "well some judges may give a 10-8 there". In a fight like this, I had no clue where rounds one and two were going to be scored. Upon rewatch of round 2 only, that round I could definitely see being split. Put it this way - heading into the final round, I knew the scores were going to be interesting. I would have been very surprised if it was a clear cut three to two rounds for Thompson. I mean shit - look at the play by plays on Sherdog and MMAJunkie. You have two 49-48's for Woodley on Sherdog, one 47-47 on Sherdog, and a 48-48 on MMAJunkie.

    I'm just glad the fight is over and there wasn't another draw. If you look at both of those fights, there are so many minutes of nothing happening that I'd never want to see it again. For someone like Thompson that is supposed to be such a good striker, he certainly couldn't accomplish anything very significant through 50 minutes.

    Thats what I thought, underlining the point that absolutely nothing happened.

    Apparently not. Bennett openly criticized Sal d'Amato for giving Woodley a 10-8 in the 5th.
