    Shogun Rua- Dan Henderson: UFC 139
    Frankie Edgar- Gray Maynard II: UFC 125
    Robbie Lawler-Carlos Condit: UFC 195
    Quinton Jackson-Lyoto Machida: UFC 123
    Shogun Rua-Lyoto Machida: UFC 104
    Couture- Rizzo: UFC 31
    Jones-Reyes: UFC 247
    Condit-Diaz: UFC 143

    For me
    Shogun-Henderson: Draw felt about right. Although it was so back and forth it's a little hard to remember

    Frankie-Gray: I think I had Gray ahead 3-2 + a 10-8 in the first

    Lawler-Condit: Love Robbie but I had Condit ahead 3-2

    Jackson-Machida; Bizarre fight: 2-1 Jackson but it was so crazy how little action occured until the 3rd. Thought Rampage took the 1st 2

    Rua-Machida 3-2 Shogun but not nearly as big a robbery as was acted like in the past. Close fight

    Couture- Rizzo: Couture 3-2 but barely

    Jones-Reyes: Felt like Reyes 3-2 was the correct score but Reyes I think maybe could have pushed a bit more to make it more decisive

    Condit-Diaz: I love Nick Diaz, but it felt like Condit clearly won 3 rounds. I dunno. I guess it comes down to the 1st round.

    eesh. Felt like Ricco got jobbed there but at the same time, under PRIDE rules I guess it depends how much you consider sub attempts to be "damage" cuz Nog sure was busy

    you?

    Condit & Cerrone beat Lawler

    Condit beat Diaz convincingly

    Condit beat Hendrix

    Lyoto over Shogun but my bias is strong.

    Reyes beat Jones

    Bisping won 3 rounds to 2 vs Anderson, that fight wasn't close.

    Bisping won if we’re judging by point karate, Anderson won by every other metric of what one considers a fight.

    At first I thought Ricco got robbed. Then I became more educated on Pride judging and realized Ricco never really tried to finish the fight. The number one criteria in Pride was attempting to finish the fight. Even though Nog never came close to a finish throwing up submissions was still attempting to get to a position to finish. I don’t think Ricco really understood the scoring either and played it too safe. He knew he couldn’t finish Nog so he didn’t really try. I’m ok with that decision now.

    On UFC 139, the biggest surprise here in that fight between Shogun vs Henderson was that you can argue for a 10-9 round in the first round for Henderson since he didn't land that many more strikes in comparison to Shogun in that first round. On the other hand, it could even be argued that in Round 5 could even be a 10-8 round for Shogun considering Dan Henderson didn't even manage to land a single hit while Shogun was all over him in that round.

    Here is how I scored it for that bout: (Shogun on the left, Hendo on the right)
    9 | 10
    9 | 10
    9 | 10
    10 | 9
    10 | 8

    It comes out to be 47-47 respectively. That fight should have been a draw for the most part unless the judged scored a 10-9 for Hendo in the 5th round or something.

    Agree with pretty much all of that except Robbie vs Condit. Just felt like Robbie's shots were more powerful. 3-2 Lawler imo

    No, I think he won all the fights he got credited for except for Anderson, Henderson, and Matt Hamill. Coincidently all the fights that took place on his home turf.

    I agree with you on Hamill. And the Hendo fight depends on scoring, sure.

    Anderson and Leities were clear Bisping wins though
