    It's still stupid. Why even have judges if they are going to get it wrong so much? Have a fight end in a draw without judges IMO.

    Really hate this "Don't leave it in the hands of the judges" shit that Dana likes to say.

    It's part of the fucking rules. Dana loves to blame the fighters and not the judges. Fucking baldheaded retard. Not everyone can finish their opponent.

    That's such a stupid statement. This is not rock-em, sock-em robots. Eventually a guy can survive 3 rounds no matter what you do. You expect when that happens, if you got the best of it, to be treated like the winner.

    Flame on gentlemen but I'm glad dariush won and he deserved it by taking over round 2 and winning round 3.

    heard that dana hates draws. draws don't really do anything. it's like a fight that basically never happened. no one advances in the ladder with draws so i see his points.

    besides... i'd like to think that decision wins helps you climb up the ladder slower than finishes. especially split decision wins.

    Some very true statements, it's a little nuts how everything improves yet the judges are seemingly worse or at best, just as bad as ever.. Should they not be getting better like every other facet of the sport? Practice makes perfect no? Pretty disturbing

    This is a case where that motto applies,johnson coasted in the 3rd under the assumption that he had the first two locked

    He probably couldve put dariush away but instead played it safe for a decision....

    I've never heard of this Dana White guy before.. Seems calm and rational, judging by that tweet..

    Johnson lost people. Shucking and jiving, dancing, and foot shuffling does not win a fight.

    He was missing most of his shot and was half as fresh at the end of the 2nd. Throw a hissy fit and sulk out of the ring.

    This and the fact that his entire gameplan was that of point fighting which is by design meant to win a decision. Dariush did just point out something important in his interview and that is that even though the takedowns didn't work they did keep MJ on the outside and held him to about 2 punch combos.
