    Fight metric is for nerds, even the top goof himself said it was even going into the 5th. Silva was robbed

    Also, just an FYI. Not every close fight is a robbery. Just makes it a close fight.

    The unanimous 48-47 seemed suspect to me, but whatever

    People that think Anderson clearly inflicted more damage have short-term memory problems.

    Did you not see Bisping knock down Silva in rounds 1 and 2 and follow him to the ground for some serious ground and pound sequences?

    It was like Silva/Weidman II all over again.

    It's hard to see bruises on dark-skinned people.

    It's common sense- dark blue is hard to contrast from dark brown as opposed to white or yellow.

    havent watched the fight again but at the end of the fight bisping looked to be in worse shape. and clearly had more damage on his face. looked close either way i dont really see how bisping should have won.

    Because, whether right or wrong, damage does not decide who won a fight under the unified rules.
     
  9. Are you comparing that knockdown to a near knockout?

    Lol, nobody is arguing about the first two rounds, Bisping got those clearly. 3, 4, and 5 were for Anderson though, he landed the harder shots in each of those rounds, Bisping was in survival mode at the end.

    Where are the guys who were counting missed strikes (hit at air?). Bisping was hitting air most of the time yet still won.

    Bisping clearly won 3 rounds to 2. the judges were all right. I swear I am not a Bisping fan or a Silva fan, I didn't care who win, just wanted a good fight.. but I scored it 48-47 to Bisping while watching it

    If Bisping had any decent power he would've easily finished SIlva

    So, if a guy throws more strikes, lands more strikes, but misses a larger percentage...he loses? That doesn't make sense. I can see the argument for Anderson having landed the harder shots though, but Bisping certainly landed more.

    You couldn't see Bisping's bruises because of all the blood.

    Who did you think won at the end of the fight on first time viewing?

    Thank you for using whatever instead of "whatevs" - makes me feel like I am reading a text from a dimwitted JHS kid ;)

    How many points is a KO worth in scoring a fight?

    What was suspect about judges finally scoring a 10 point must fight competently? It's surprising but not suspect.

    Since the fight continued, about the same as a knock down.
