    I think we all agree on Bisping rounds 2, 4 and Anderson 3, 5. The first round was kinda the decisive one on the judges decision. Well nothing really happened there, both fighters playing careful.

    I also think that the "dont leave it to the hands of the judges applies here". What really went down for Anderson :

    - fight was in Bisping territory
    - Bisping being the agressor
    - terrible fight IQ there
    - Bisping had too much time to recover

    God this fight is frustrating for a Silva fan.

    Anderson LOST. Easily distinguishable decision. That knee was the closest to a finish but Silva FUCKED THAT UP.

    round 1 Bisping 10-8 with knockdown
    round 2 bisping hurts anderson again 10-8
    round 3 Anderson lands the knee 10-8 but bisping won the rest of the round so 9-9 round even
    round 4: Anderson 10-9
    round5: Bisping out works him

    final tally of my boxing style scorecard = 47 - 44 bisping

    I honestly thought it was gonna be a draw when the fight ended.

    I'm okay with Bisping getting the win tho.

    Bisping won the decision (on a round by round basis under the 10 point must system). Silva was by far the more effective striker but lacked the aggression to take the decision. If he had been more active it could have been a very different fight. It's also easy to forget that Bisping was handily winning the 3rd round until that knee. He definitely should have defended himself better but the break from the Thai Cling was a natural pause point so it makes sense that he expected it (despite the round being nearly over). If you put an asterisk next that strike, Bisping potentially won 4 rounds based off of number of strikes landed, aggression, and octagon control.

    Side Note: Although I think Bisping won under the current rules, I think this only highlights issues with the system and will hopefully spur talks about an overall.

    For me, the most convincing round in the whole fight was possibly the first. I see nothing other than bisping winning the first round.

    There wasn't a knockdown in the first. Anderson's ass never touched the mat.
    10-9 Bisping
    10-8 Bisping

    Bisping lost the entire last minute of the third round and the knee got a knockdown. 10-8 Silva
    10-10
    10-9 Silva I don't know what you were watching if you actually thought Silva lost the fifth.

    47 - 47 draw. In a perfect world that's the score.

    I think Bisping won, but giving him two 10-8s, and scoring round three as a 9-9 is a little excessive. I agree with the decision, but it was very close. Even if this is a boxing-style scorecard, that makes Bisping's win seem way more decisive than it was.
