    I'd also like to add that more total strikes does not always mean a better performance.

    I agree, Sherdog just has the obsession that everytime a close fight goes the way they didn't want it, it's a robbery

    and this isn't sweet justice or karma.

    if garcia had dominated and lost, that would have been fitting.

    Who cares who won. The fans won and that's all that matters. Everytime Leonard Garcia fights, the fans win.

    Holloway won rounds 1 & 2 and Garcia won round 3 so I don't see why people are saying it's a robbery.

    Garcia pretty clearly won 2 and 3
    That's why Max fans can't agree on if it was 2 or 3 that Max "won".

    If the guy who should have won didn't, then it's a robbery. I don't care how close it was.

    Garcia won the last 2 rounds.

    I have argued for FIVE judges in MMA for the past 3 years.....in the case of a split decision with the primary 3, then the last two alternates cards get scored. Then at least its a 3/5 call and not some bullshit Patricia Morse Jarman score....I've sat next to her and a few other judges that have no more right to be there than my 2 year old Dutch Shepherd
