It's not like the fighters wanted to go to the cards. Just neither guy could finish the other. I disagree that the only "true" way to win is get a finish. Sometimes that's just not in the cards.
I also don't have to base my views on fights and fighters on what 3 generally incompetent judges have to say. I don't have to accept all decisions as law and I never will.
And I'm not saying you should. But yet again, you can think
what ever you want about about who you thought really
won. The fact of the matter is there is no peoples championship belt. There is no "Who the fans thought won" belt. There's only an official belt, and according to the judges, Ben retained the belt. So those are the results I go by.
