The best, and sometimes the only way to keep a robbery from happening is to finish the fight. If the fighters don't finish, then whoever the judges thinks won the fight, won the fight. Many people argue that Frankie won the second fight. But guess what, the most important people scored the fight for bendo, so he is who won. I personally think Carlos Condit was robbed in his fight against Kampann, but yet again, he didn't insure his victory by finishing, so Kampann won because the judges said so.
My point is that if all these people that won these fights, TRULY won the fight, it wouldn't have had to go to a decision in the first place.
When two guys like Frankie and Bendo are fighting your not always going to get a finish because they are such tough SOB's and are the best at that weight class.
I personally think Bendo won the first fight. And Frankie won the Second fight.
The only reason I brought this back up is due how excited I am that Frankie is Fighting in about 10 days from now!!!!
