    In absolutely no way did that decision make any sense. I watched the promos saying that it was the most controversial decision of the season, and I still couldn't believe it when it was read. It was without a doubt the worst decision I have ever seen. Under no circumstances do those judges even deserve to watch an mma fight again much less decide the outcome of one. The only way it can be justified is if the judges thought they were watching a "keep a grown man on your back for 5 minutes competition" , in which case Hill dominated. I know it gets said alot, but if that was me I don't think I could accept that victory.

    As far as I can remember Rd 1 was very close, could've gone either way. But rounds 2 and 3 Hill was on bottom getting controlled/beat up...more so controlled.

    Even if Hill won the first round 10-8, which he didnt, it would've lead to a draw. How any judge scored round 2 or 3 for Hill is beyond me.

    That Zaromskis stoppage was terrible. Not quite sure what he was waiting for. Marius was breakdancing before he fell down, then ate about 8 jack hammer lefts. Horrible stoppage.

    Secor won that fight, no doubt.

    Easily worst decision I have ever seen. I actually came closer to winning that fight than hill did.

    I actually talked to secor on twitter about it. #bestfriends

    EASILY won of the worst decisions ever. I just watched it and had to come on here to specifically to say that.

    Anyone else think they are trying to do some conspiracy shit and show how bad judging is right now. They are using tuf to do it b/c the fights are meaningless. About every fight this year has been poorly judged. If you watched Friday's fight and gave it to mr. nipple tat then you shouldn't be able to watch mma. He was back mounted for a large portion of the round.
