    Do the judges ever release the round by round scores in bellator? I was wondering if any of the judges possibly scored the 3rd rd 10-8 Brooks, and then a 10-10 5th. I personally scored it that way, anyone else think that was the case or thought the 3rd was 10-8 Brooks?

    The only 2 appropriate scores for this fight are either 48-47 Chandler or a 47-47 draw. Will Brooks looked awesome in the rounds he won, but Chandler did plenty enough to seal the final round.

    Also King Mo won, screw Bellators judging.

    I just can't see how Brooks won honestly. I did, however, think that Brooks looked good

    Yup. 10-8 is the correct score for round 3.

    I had the fight a draw, with a 10-8 3rd and Chandler 10-9 final round.

    Watching live I thought the final round could've been a 10-10 because Brooks controlled it early but Chandler did well in the later stages. I think the arm triangle sealed the round for Chandler, but I can see an argument for 10-10.

    Fight was a draw, IMO.

    if you guys rewatch R5 -> Brooks dominated the first 2.5 minutes(so first half of the fight), then not much happens for 1.5 minutes, slightly in favor of Brooks maybe...and in the last minute mark Chandler dominates, works on a triangle and get mount.
    Still...given that Brooks dominated 2.5 minutes at least, while Chandler only had an offense for 1 minute and didn't do something exceptional in that minute, I agree with R5 for Brooks.

    And on topic, yes R3 was 10-8...
    48-46 Brooks imo

    You should be banned from making banning decisions. That was an extremely close round. I think any way you slice it Brooks won. A draw would be a stretch

    That was jow I saw it, and even so I didn't think the draw was all that likely... Mainly because 10-8 rounds are harder to come by than they should be in actual mma scoring.

    Chandler won 1,2 and 5. Will won 3,4.

    You use the word dominated loosely. Neither fighter dominated the other in round 5.
