    And I have a newsflash for the people out there that have been watching combat sports for Only a few years now. Close decision victories are very common when it comes to a long time champion. This has been going on in boxing for like 100 years. GSP is hardly the first, and he won’t be the last great champion to get the benefit of the doubt on a decision. I could name 10 right now off the top of my head. Norton fought Ali 3 times. A lot of people think Norton won all 3..

    Newsflash: A bunch of fellow Canadians defend GSP at all costs.

    I remember everybody booing GSP after that Hendricks fight, it was literally every.body.

    Dana's smear campaign is legendary. He never managed to push GSP around and GSP was too much of a draw for Dana to do anything about it.

    He absolutely hates it and never could let go. Poor Dana!

    I don’t like GSP. I think he’s overrated. However, I do think he won that fight. I watched it recently and felt it was pretty clear.

    This fight is just one of many indictments of th 10 pt system of scoring. Hendricks won a fight and GSP won a stupid points decision. See Bisping vs Hendo II as another atrosity of the 10 point system.

    I love how even after all this time, people STILL call this fight a robbery. When it comes down to a few seconds of offense in a single round, that is not a robbery.

    It's a close fight.

    Except, no, it's about who wins the most rounds. If I inflict more damage in the two rounds that I easily win, but not by 10-8 margins, and my opponent hardly inflicts any damage in the three rounds that he wins, he wins the fight, because it's not about who inflicts the most damage.

    So you're giving props to Dana for stating complete garbage and nonsense that is a complete misstatement of facts?

    Every single judge gave Conor the first round, so, no, I don't remember any judges scoring it 10-0 Mayweather over Conor in rounds. Neither do you. You just like spouting nonsense.

    Everyone, but everyone had Hendricks winning rounds 2 and 4. Everyone had GSP winning rounds 3 and 5. Round 1 Hendricks landed one more strike than GSP. GSP landed one more significant strike. GSP landed more strikes at range. Hendricks landed almost all of his in the clinch. Both scored one takedown. GSP had the only submission attempt, but wasn't that close with it.

    That fight was about as even as it gets. Since total damage done over the entirety of the fight is not in any way, shape or form a judging criteria, the fight going either way, by one point, is a legitimate and fair decision. Anyone who scored the fight 4 -1, like Dana did, is showing they don't know what they are talking about.

    We all know Dana is the just bleed type. Oh just for context, I’m imagining this had to be said after his retirement. I mean since he basically said it right there in the octagon. But Dana isn’t the type to have sour grapes.

    Ancient history bro.

    Johnny is probably curled up in a ball somewhere in his moms basement right now telling himself he won that fight. USADA destroyed that man.

    I don’t think that Dana said any of this out of spite. Yes, Dana can be catty but why would he make up this whole story and then throw the NSAC under the bus just because he is upset at GSP? He was speaking truth and what he genuinely thought.

    This is just one more case of him not telling the truth.

    Booing Him for what reason exactly? It’s not his job to make a decision.

    White was crying foul and the reason Rogan did such biased commentary is cause they knew GSP will be retiring

    Close title fights tend to be judged in favor for the champion. And it should be that way.
