Off topic but yeah the KZ/Garcia fight was BS, even through my sheer excitement I could see that KZ shoulda taken that fight and landed way more than Garcia.
And even though I disagree with you about the stats being wrong (along with most good MMA media sites) its not all about how many punches each guy lands its about significant blows which Diaz definitely landed more of....when I saw the Compustrike numbers I felt like they were WAY off.
I agree the 2nd was all Noons, but the 4th was Diaz and the 5th you could give to Noons I suppose even though I have seen the last rd scored Diaz, Noons and 10-10.
End of the day this was not one of those terribly scored fights, it was a very close fight which most ppl feel (and ppl I respect for there knowledge) Diaz won, if anything Thomson/JZ was scored worse.
