I disagree. Although it was a closely contested fight I believe Souza clearly should have won the fight.

First 2 rounds were easily Souza's. Rockhold did nothing to win those rounds.

The 3rd round was Rockhold's.

In the 4th Rockhold was tired, Souza landed far better shots standing and spent more time controlling the fight pressing Rockhold against the cage.

The 5th could have gone either way with Rockhold having a slight advantage standing compared to Souza actually getting a takedown.

Jacare deserved to lose just for going the distance with a guy like Rockhold. Embarrassing.
