    Both fights were close and both could have gone either way according to many folks.



    So what was a closer fight: Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustaffsson or Ben Henderson vs. Gilbert Melendez?

    Jones/Gus because Ben BEAT Gil no problem. Ben has beaten everyone but Edgar for the second time. That's how I see it.

    Gil & Ben for sure. Should have been a draw.

    Pointless to compare when one fight happened 24 hours ago.

    Both fights seem clear cut to me. I dont get the fuss about this recent title match.

    Both fights the loser should have won, imho.

    Yet another lesson to never leave it to the judges.

    There have been quite a few poor judging decisions lately as I see it.

    Phil Davis vs. Lyoto Machida.

    Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson.

    Ben Henderson vs. Gilbert Melendez.

    nothing new there.

    boxing judges get rounds wrong ALL THE TIME.

    mma is EXPONENTIALLY MORE DIFFICULT TO SCORE than boxing.

    a lot of folks seem to be emotionally vested in hating the words "don't let it go to the judges", but...

    Even Dana White said that he felt Machida won every single round against Davis.
