    Who did you give each round to? Choose 5 options!

    If you feel so compelled to score a round a draw just vote for both guys. Problem solved.

    Just rewatched it.

    I can't see how Shields won. It's a clear 48-47 to Maia.

    Maia 1,4,5. The poll will reflect this imo.

    i had shields in the first. neither did much, but shields ended up on top for the last 2 minutes or so. should this win the round? no, but it probably did

    This poll will also reflect that people still don't grasp the concept of these round by round polls that I do.

    Shields won 2,3 and Maia won 4,5. The toss up round is the 1st.

    Maia, Shields, Shields, Maia, Maia
    Could have gone either way really. Awful fight.

    How did Maia win the 5th when all he did was punch air until the last 10 seconds? ridiculous people on here. Shields outworked Maia for the entire round but favoritism will come into play here.

    I agree with this. I wonder which of these rounds the judges gave to Shields.

    I thought shields took 1,2, and 3. But in reality 1 was close and Maia winning was more what the UFC and the fans wanted I think but is what it is. Shields fought smart. Shields also demonstrated that Maia as good as he is was not going to pose a threat to GSP.

    How did Shields win it? Every single one of his high kicks was blocked and I don't remember any other good strikes for him. Maia got a few right hands in at least.

    Maia was landing the more significant shots. He countered Shields numerous times with the left. That said, it could very easily be Shield's round (for the work done in a round with little offense) or a draw.

    I think it gives a better reflection of what the fans think about the fight. I kind of feel bad though, because there's usually another plat that's created a "Who do you think won?" poll and I feel like I'm stealing their thunder.

    Shields pushed the pace, landed how many leg kicks, body kicks and jabs? and you're going to say that just a couple right hands from Maia > all the work Shields did?

    Favoritism. This is like a Robot Chicken episode for fuck's sake.

    2 3 5 Shields. Being consistent with the judging used in other fights even if I dislike Shields strategy.

    Sheilds won 1 (barely) 2, 3 and 5 (barely).

    4 rounds to won.

    The people that gave Maia 2 & 3 are fucking morons.
