It was a close fight. I don't think it was a no brainer that Griffen won the fight. I scored it 29-28 for Forrest but round 1 was REALLY close. You could have given it to Tito and since Tito won round 2 in most people's opinion then a 29-28 for Tito isn't unreasonable. Round 3 was the only round in the fight that was undisputable.

People always seem to assume that if there are two close rounds that they split them. They don't, you can have a razor close fight be scored 30-27 for fighter A by one judge and 30-27 for fighter B by another if they have 3 really close rounds and the judge just happens to give all 3 of them to one fighter.
