Woodley is more boring than being Helen Keller.
This is clearly hopeless, and you've proven to be incapable of having a rational debate.
Have a good night fanboy.
...Aaand I was satisfied with it. That mockery of a fight made me grin hard, kept me awake for the co main and main event.
No, that'd be the Edgar/Maynard 10-7 round (which every judge failed to recognize).
Judges in MMA are generally atrocious. At best, this fight should've been scored a draw (Whitaker keeps belt) .
Whittaker won SD fair and square.
Fell asleep during the Colvington fight.
Yeah... round by round I didn't think the judges were wrong overall, but I would have given the 4th to Whittaker (unlike the one judge that scored the fight for Romero) and scored the 5th 10-8 Romero, making it a draw.
Just watched the fight. Scored it a draw.
Amazing fight, holy shit.
Are they on a ten point must system?
I had Yoel winning but I can live with a draw.
No way Whitaker won that fight.
I didn't score the 3rd a 10-8, although I can see the argument for it. It was about as close to being a finish as the 5th, but Whitaker recovered better and landed enough solid shots (in particular a solid headkick and elbow which stunned Romero) to make it only a 10-9 to me. No way I'd give Romero 1, 2 or 4 though, so relying on 2 10-8s and the new rules for a win doesn't seem any less flimsy to me than Whitaker relying on no 10-8s and 3 rounds.
It's the usual case of controversial wins though, where losing 2 rounds (and especially later rounds) by a huge margin versus winning 3 rounds by a comparatively narrow margin just doesn't seem like a win.
I thought Esparza, Romero, and RDA won
This is a weakness in the nature of scoring where someone must win a round, hence the adoption of boxing ten point must system which is exactly what they did. I like technical fights, Wonderboy, Machida and my favorite fighters are Edgar, Rory, GSP, but I think the rules ignore fighting’s most basic idea: Whom was closer to losing outright? And how often did they find themselves in that situation?
I feel Whitaker was in serious trouble more than enough times to warrant either a draw or a victory for Yoel.
Draw is the most rational scoring outcome. My personal opinion though, is that Yoel won that fight.
Godamn, just woke up an this scrap is the first thing on my mind
Going to watch a few of the fights again today (a lil more sober) with a massive brunch!
What a night!
Wow! That was an incredible fight! Romero did excellent, that was a very close fight. Great win for Whittaker!
Anyone scoring round 4 for Yoel is delusional.
What is that weird eating gesture that Michael Jackson did at the weigh-in and post fight? What's he doing and why?
Eating shit. Bc he eats pieces of shit for breakfast.
I hate Romero he is a fat fook, but he won.
Also wtf Arlovski??Carla ??
At least Pettis won that blondie
FOTY in my opinion. The Buffalo Wild Wings I was at was going nuts.
