I have the 1st round going to Sonnen (thus winning the fight),
just because of the way fights are being judged.
In terms of real fighting damage/effectiveness i would give it Bisping, but as Dana says, it is what it is...

Any way, what a mess by the officials.
This.^ Octagon control and dominant position always seemed to be favored over real damage.

Real damage fight: Bisping 1 (it was close)
Bisping 2
Chael 3 (overwhemingly)

Judging criteria for fights is the real issue at hand here.
