Well like I have said many many times before most MMA judges score strikes thrown not strikes landed and how clean and powerful they were. That is how Garcia "wins" fights.

Yeah Rockhold missed a lot and Jacare blocked a lot but Rockhold was throwing 6 strikes to every one of Jacare's so even if he only lands 2 of 6 he still landed more. Very close, I wouldn't have thought Jacare winning was awful but I had it 48-47 Rockhold personally. 50-45 either way is bizarre.

Rockhold was more aggressive but that was it. Running forward throwing strikes is only useful if you connect on something.

Ju-Jitsu dominance?

Ju-Jitsu is pretty much dead these days.

I had it 48-47 myself, with Rockhold winning the last three rounds.

There was NO WAY he won the first two though, that was asinine.

That is incorrect. judging criteria is based on effective striking, grappling, aggression and octagon control. for the most part Rockhold was far more agressive and he also largely controlled the cage. The fight was close and either guy taking it would not have been a crime.

I agree with Drogo...Rockhold threw a ton more than Jacare and had aggression the whole fight...anytime Jacare had aggression was when he dropped Rockhold and during his takedowns which Rockhold defended.

I'd give the first few rounds to Jacare, last 3 to Rockhold iirc.

The first 2 rounds Rockhold was just throwing kicks that were getting blocked, and he got dropped in the 2nd.

He's not fighting Giant Silva, Shamrock is ******* clueless as to what the hell's happening around him.

Rockholt won the fight- early on Jacare was better but after that he was on the defensive and did nothing to win the fight. Rockholt deserved the win.

It is effective aggression and hitting air and forearms doesn't qualify.
