    Borg and Hendricks had very similar gameplans (and very similar weigh ins) with swarming their opponents with heavy shots and control them

    Borg deserved to win, Johny didn't. My reason for this is Borg was trying to finish the fight and be aggressive while, Johny, who did control the majority of the fight was just trying to get through the minutes to win. He threw one knee in the clinch in the 3rd and even stalled when he picked Magny up

    IMO Hendricks won the second Lawler fight technically but did not deserve the win for the same reason; 0 aggression, willingness to push the pace and only making a move so they aren't seperated

    Well said, Hendricks should have at least peppered some GnP on Magny

    One was aggressive non stop, and constantly trying for subs...the other was day dreaming about sub sandwiches.
