.....oh wait..... backwards-ass decision favoring the hometown favorite? Yes. Yes they were.
He also controlled him on the cage. It wasn't a OMG robbery, but I thought under MMA judging criteria it was a sure win for Lawlor or at the very least a draw. BTW I am not a Lawlor fight fan (he's funny but thats about it) so this isn't coming from a biased point of view.
