Mistake In Sonnen-Bisping Judging, Sonnen Wins Split Decision - FightLine.com
What was in the water last night in Chicago? |
It was reported by UFC president Dana White shortly following the UFC on Fox 2: Evans vs. Davis event had concluded that Chris Weidman, who stepped up on short notice to take on Demian Maia on the night's main card, had not beaten Maia by split decision (29-28, 28-29, 30-27), as was initially announced by Bruce Buffer, but had actually defeated the Brazilian by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27).
This morning, F4WOnline reports that the Weidman-Maia decision wasn't the only judges' decision to be rendered or read incorrectly, as apparently there was an error in getting across the correct result of the night's co-main event, which pitted middleweights Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping against one another.
Originally and controversially read as a unanimous decision in Sonnen's favor, with scores of 30-27, 29-28, and 29-28 all going for the Oregonian. As it's being reported, the actual scorecards show a different story, one that much better reflects what happened in the fight. According to F4WOnline, two judges gave rounds one and three to Sonnen, with Bisping taking the second, while the third judge scored it unanimously for Bisping.
There are many paths to freedom....not all are peaceful.

Not the third. That being said, I think sonnen won, but was thoroughly unimpressed with how he got the win. Barely edging someone after you talk that much trash should not warrant you a title shot
Remember. Silva is avoiding Sonnen. Silva's plan has always been to have all top contenders fight each other and elimiante each other from contention. Then when nobody strings together a run...he gets to fight the lieks of Cote, Leites or Maia. It's what Silva does. He did it to Hendo and now Sonnen. You kinda loose motivation walking through top contender after top contender while the champ avoids you. Silva is brilliant at that. Bisping now gets sent to the bottom. While Silva avoids Sonnen. having every top contender eliminate themselves while he waits for surgury waits or for recovery waits for his brazilian. what ever. Silva is great but not a goood representative of a true champion.
I'm sure Silva will fight Maia again hurt or not.
