    Bisping won the decision. He pressured Silva throughout the fight, and as much as people will point to Silva's two "almost" KO's, don't forget that Bisping had a couple of his own earlier in the fight. "Damage" is not part of the judging process.

    I was disgusted at first, but looking back, Bisping won it. Purely based on the scorecards, of course.

    EDIT - Could a mod change the "F***" to "Hell". Didn't know that thread swearing gets the dubs. My bad.

    I'm actually kind of glad I missed the fight. Judging by the boards it was a shit show. I'll watch it after the dust has settled.

    I will have to watch round 4 again, but I scored Bisping rounds 1,2 & 4. When you look at the fight as a whole Anderson was the better which kinda sucks and is why a lot of people seem cheezed off, but Bisping wins on rounds.

    One thing I want to say is, the Bisping knockdown cannot hold the same weight as the flying knee knockdown. When Andy went down, he was waiting to (and eventually did) land the upkick and was control on his back. Bisping took 5-10 secs to get up after the bell from the flying knee.

    Hurry let's get all our favorite failed younger fighters to fight 41 year old Anderson (april) so we can say "see, my fighter is better than Anderson."

    Nevermind. Found it.

    Lmao

    You act like shogun is just some new upcomer

    You Anderson fans with the excuses, don't forget your man was scared of shogun and shut his mouth when he beat his homeboy

    It's all good.

    I'd hate to get dubs over a thread that will be buried in 5...4....3...2...1...

    There are many factors in scoring a fight, but I felt Silva should have won. IMO Bisping was going to get the decision come hell or high water if it was at all feasible. Hometown cooking at it's finest.

    As far as I'm concerned, fight should have been called at the 3rd. Props to Bisping, he showed a lot of grit and toughness, but he was entering round 4 out on his feet. Silva pulled back (maybe adrenaline dump, maybe gassed a little, maybe didn't want to hurt Bisping) in the 4th. I think if he pushed for the finish early in the 4th, he'd have gotten it. I also think that letting 'The Count' go into the fourth looking like a zombie had the terrible potential to cause him serious damage, it didn't, but it should not have happened at all, IMO. But it is what it is. Bisping won 3 rounds, but I think Silva won the 'fight'. I also think the way the 3rd round ended affected Silva in the 4th.

    Oh, by the way, you are wrong about damage not being part of the judging criteria. It doesn't use the word 'damage' but it does specify 'Heavier strikes that have a visible impact on the opponent will be given more weight than the number of strikes landed. These assessments include causing an opponent to appear stunned from a legal blow, causing the opponent to stagger, appearance of a cut or bruise from a legal strike and causing the opponent to show pain.'

    NEVER judge it by the boards. It was a hell of a fight despite the controversies. Don't miss out on this one. Had me on the edge of my seat most of the time.
