R1: Pettis
R2: Benavidez
R3: Benavidez (clear round for Benavidez; Pettis gave the fight away by being inactive)

Joseph Benavidez 2-1, imo.

I mean seriously... That knee was there for like 10 seconds and Rashad kept his head there... what an idiot.

Easier win for Anthony Smith than I expected.

i don't understand the massive booing of Claudia. She put on an amazing fight and i agreed with the decision.

R1 was clear claudia
R3 was clear Carla
R2 was the decisive round. In my opinion Claudia won it.

MMA media agrees with me: http://www.mmadecisions.com/decision/9128/Cl%C3%A1udia-Gadelha-vs-Carla-Esparza

Its ok to disagree, but this was so disrespecfull. Wasn't a robbery for sure.

Poor Overeem...

It was a tough match-up for him, but he never turns down a fight.

Violent ending for Overeem

Sigh...

CM Punk lost the fight just by gassing early in Round 2. Jackson didn't even need to do much after that...

R1: Tuivasa (close round, but Tuivasa wins it cuz of the KD)
R2: Arlovski
R3: Arlovski (Tuivasa had one big combo in this round, but Arlovski recovered and came landing small 1-2 shot combos and bloodied Tuivasa's face)

Arlovski 2-1, imo.

R2: Colby
R3: Colby
R4: Colby (close round though, but I give it to Colby toward the end)
R5: Colby

Colby Covington is your new Interim Welterweight Champion~

Rogan needs to get fired, hes so biased lately
Colby only stalled the whole fight

I would like to see Romero KO/TKO in Round 3.

Romero winning here would be the perfect story, as he would be the only person to not only miss weight for two title fights in a row, but he'd also be the only person to win two fights in a row and not be given the title because he missed weight.

Also, it would be perfect for a trilogy fight at the end of the year.

Too bad Romero literally took the first two rounds off and did nothing.

Losing a split-decision like that sucks.

His strategy was next level. He wanted to let whitaker punch him enough to hopefully break his hand, and then get a KO while still fully fresh against a whitaker with 1 hand!

R1 2 and 4 were pretty clearly for Whittaker... unless someone gave Romero 10-8 @ R5 I dont see another reason to be a draw, eventhough it would be a very well deserved 10-8... Either way how the fuck do you score the fight for Romero??? Its a draw or decision @ Whittaker ... R3 is definitely not a 10-8 for Romero EVER, plus R5 Romero just did nothing the last 2minutes of the round

super deserved win by Whittaker imo, especially considering he fought 1 handed agaisnt the guy that only has to touch you once correctly.

This in no way was a robbery, It was a close fight, even the 3rd round could arguably be just a 10-9 round given that Whittaker landed a hard elbow and the hardest hit of the fight, that freaking baseball bat to the dome that I'm still in shock that Romero ate like nothing.

1 and 2 Whittaker but no damage, round 3 Whittaker got KD, round 4 Romero clearly, Whittaker almost got KD even did the chicken dance, round 5 clearly 10-8 even in the old rules
its so stupid to score round 1 and 2 for Whittaker with the same weight as round 5 for Romero


Spitfiree   Bulgaria. Jun 11 2018 18:32. Posts 8808

what do you mean R4 Romero clearly? I just rewatched it and Whittaker was the only one that had any clean shots up until the dick kick, Romero had time to rest a bit there so he managed to land some shots afterwards but Whittaker was still controlling the round till the last 20s where Romero landed 2 nasty shots but not nearly enough to steal the round.

R1 - 10-9 Whittaker
R2 - 10-9 Whittaker
R3 - 10-9 Romero - Yes, Romero landed a huge shot but Whittaker managed to fight back and probably did more damage with the elbows so I don't see any reason to go 10-8 here
R4 - 10-9 Whittaker
R5 - 10-8 Romero

So yeah 47-47 sounds reasonable .. yeah theoretically R5 coulda been 10-7 Romero but cmon.. nobody s gonna score it 10-7 ever. The media that scored it 46-48 Romero are just bonkers

R3 10-9 and 10-8 are reasonable
R4 10-9 or 10-10 are reasonable
R5 10-9 and 10-8 are reasonable

This gives enough room to have widely different scorecards I dont think this was a robbery or anybody was bonkers

I disagree with 10-10 for R4 being reasonable. it was 34 SS vs 20 SS. 10-10 is extremely rarely scored and this definetly isn't an example of a round that should be the exception to the rule.

I might need to rewatch round 3, but i think that theres tons of much worse rounds that happen all the time that don't get scored 10-8.

Round 5 is the round that could be a 10-8 imo.

Well said, agreed with everything.
