    He was already the first against Jones. Anyone can confirm this information about Weidman?

    Supposedly that was a mistake in the announcement and Weidman was the unanimous winner, but Maia was given rounds.

    Bonnar won the third against Jones. Jones was lucky it wasnt a 5 rounder.

    It looks like he beat Sakara 30-27 according to wikipedia but I could have sworn Sakara won the first round. I remember him outstriking Weidman that round.

    [Shrug] personally I agree with you. However I believe the other posters are overstating it as the judges split on who won the 1st round.

    It was a mistaken announcement. Simply checking Sherdog's Fight Finder or FightMetric will show this (or even either fighter's Wiki pages which pull their info from SD's Fight Finder anyway, but Wiki pages are editable to the public if they're not locked).
