I'll try to find the fight on youtube today - when I watched it last night, nothing led me to believe Hendricks did anything to win that 1st round. He really had nothing for Lawler - every takedown was stuffed except for one in the middle of the fight when Robbie got right back up and then the one in the 5th. Lawler, on the other hand, landed clean shots in every round. Ah well, I don't see Hendricks defending very long...unless Rogan refs the fights.
Seems like he got lucky on decisions against Koscheck, Condit, and now Lawler.
I'm not sure about the actual numbers yet but I'm sure the stats will be out soon.

Good card. This is how every ppv should be stacked and I have no problem paying for it (aside from the fact I think they should be cheaper given how frequent they are) but I will pay for them.
If they try to pass off cards like 170 and 150 as ppvs I'll continue streaming them if I'm bored and bother to watch them at all.

Also, I didn't know how big of a fan of Robbie Lawler I was until the fight began. I was rooting for him like crazy. Still bummed out that he got so close and couldn't get it done. I definitely thought Hendricks won 3-2 but Robbie was so game and the rounds he took was much more definitive than any of Hendricks', well not according to Douglas Crosby.
Edit: Also I just re-watched the fight. This fight was quite similar to the GSP and Hendricks fight in my opinion, at least in terms of scoring. The first round was extremely close and hard to score (like GSP/Hendricks round 1). The second round went to Hendricks (much like GSP/Hendricks round 3). The 3rd and 4th rounds were quite definitive rounds for Lawler (like GSP/Hendricks round 2 and 4). The 5th round of this fight was similar to GSP/Hendricks round 5. It went to Johny 48-47 but a case could be made for 48-47 Robbie depending on how you scored round 1, which was the same scenario as GSP/Hendricks.

Great night of action from the prelims to the main event. I was rooting for Lawler, but Hendrix has my respect. Lawler just ran out of gas before the finish line. Had he kept the pace he had in round 4 he would be the new champ...or I should say SHOULD be the new camp. Ok, So Lombard vs Lawler for the next titleshot. Loved watching lombard use his Judo against shields, I wish Melvin Guillard would take notes on that and Robbie Lawler's awesome telephone pole jab. Lombard played it safe against shields not wanting to give him an easy take down I guess. Shields is very sticky on the ground, a hard guy to get good GnP against. But still Lombard was the boss the entire fight and should be in the mix for a title shot this year somehow. And if Diaz wants to get in the mix he should have to fight another top contender, they might match him against Lombard but I think it would be extremely unfair. Maybe rematch Diaz with Condit or fight woodley. But uf course I wouldn't mind seeing an immediate rematch between Lawler and Hendrix either. This was just that kind of a fight.
On a side note the ladies went out there and went to war hard tonight, very good night for WMMA.

If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee
So much for Condit being crowned WW champion in 2014. Goddamn it.
Don't you like it when fans celebrate injuries, especially when they act like the moral police as often as they can?
