    And treat it as a win for Johnson. I will say this, he fought tentative compared to his Barboza fight because he was worried about the TD, but I had him winning 29-28 or even 30-27. I cannot believe anyone justified giving Dariush that fight.

    Will the UFC bump him up in the rankings?

    If you could have scored it 30-27 you shouldn't input on this decision. 30-27 MJ would be a bigger robbery than 29-28 Dariush.

    Thought MJ won but not 30-27. The 1st & 3rd were clear wins for each guy.

    29-28 MJ. Explain to me how you could have possibly given him round 3 though. I thought MJ won but this isn't even close to being an all time bad decision.

    I had it 29-28 but I could see 30-27 which is how florian had it too. I may change my mind rewatching it

    MJ won all 3 rounds. you can argue Dariush won round 3 but i dont even think he won it as much MJ slowed down and Dariush continued with his jab.

    MJ far and away wins round 1
    MJ wins second round but not by a huge margin

    i give it MJ rounds 1 and 2 AT LEAST

    Johnson had you guys mesmerized by his shadow boxing. Dude whiffed on 90% of his punches.

    Dariush won round 3, but I don't see how he won 1 or 2. Bad decision.

    I had it 29-28 Johnson but what can the UFC do? He lost, it doesn't make sense to bump him up. Hopefully they cut him a big check

    He landed 38%.

    Against Barboza he landed 20%.

    Octagon control stands for something

    29-28 Johnson. Fairly obvious.

    According to who? I never trust those stats. Shots that land on someone's arms or barely brush him are often counted as landed. I thought Johnson's punching volume was way more but thought Dariush was more accurate in rounds 2-3. MJ reminded me of watching Holly Holm's last fight where it looked like she was coming up 6 inches short on most of her punches.

    Treat it as a win for MJ, Dariush did nothing and showed that he is not ready for top 5 fights.

    3 yes, but 1? That was MJ's most decisive round.

    id ask for a government probe into the judges. I'm not saying the judges were in gamblers pockets tonight but I'm sure it happens.
