    For the past 6 months or so, when I noticed it, I've thought the same damn thing. Then I think maybe it's part of the UFC's social media bonuses, where they simply don't give a shit, as long as they're posting on Twitter or some shit.

For the outcome of the fight. He took him down and kept him there. That's a point, an important point in a very close fight. I would have done the same thing... When you're that close to victory... you take it I say.
    I've gone back and forth with this issue. I do think it is harder to get a takedown than it is to defend one. Therefore, getting a takedown should count more than defending one I feel. Maybe like, 3 defended equals 1 takedown kind of thing, idk. But almost every type of martial art involved with takedowns awards takedowns with points while defending takedowns do not; ie jiu jitsu, judo, wrestling, etc.

    Can anyone fill me in on why Dana left the press conference? I had to rock a piss, and totally missed it.

    One of the judges, Doug Crosby, scored the second round 10-8 and the fifth round 10-10. Hmmmm, interesting....

    Oh shit! Hector telling Hendricks he deserves a shot, based on Shield's talking that he was 4:0 in his last fights (allegedly ?), saying that now that Rory is out of the way. Followed by Hendricks asking was Rory ever is line.

    How can YOU have a fight a split decision? Did 1/3 of you disagree with the other 2/3rds?

    The term robbery is used WAY too loosely. You say you feel the first round was maybe a draw and that you thought Robbie had a slight edge after round 2. Having what you think is a draw and a slight advantage round go the other way hardly constitutes a robbery. How often do we see rounds scored as draws without point deductions? I can only think of a handful of times.

    I had 1 & 2 For Johnny although I wouldn't have been flabbergasted if one of them went to Lawler. 3 & 4 Were pretty clearly Robbie and 5 Was clearly Hendrix. This fight was not even close to a robbery.

    The president cursing like a sailor and having his shirt unbuttoned like some douche about to go to a club is also unprofessional and they dont seem to care.

    Well this fight showed once again the importance of getting to work early, and having the stamina to last five rounds. In the GSP fight, round 1 was the questionable round. In this fight against Lawler, Johnny made sure he won the early rounds, early investment people, it pays dividends later.
