Kimbo threw punches in the first round... He may not have for the first half but he threw a few during the second. His few punches probably canceled all of those tiny kicks Houston was trying to throw. Add to that you HAVE to give him Octagon Control, he had the center of the cage, and aggression as he was actively stalking a running opponent and I could easily see how they scored it from him. Not saying I scored it that way, but I can tell where it came from.
Agreed, it isn't as insane as some fights, but I still wouldn't have scored it the same, but I can see the argument.
