Did anyone think Wanderlei won?
 
I gave Wanderlei the 1st. He landed a lot of right hands and some counter left hooks I don't think were counted. I thought he may've taken that 1st frame considering he landed the cleaner shots and may've outworked Franklin.

I definitely gave Wanderlei the 2nd.

A case could've been made for Wanderlei taking the 5th. Franklin was on his bicycle & didn't do much. Wanderlei could've stolen the round with the flurry at the end.

I doubt I'll watch it again, but those were my initial impressions.... bizarro mirror world, twilight zone-ish, though they may be... :)

Not really. Outside of that damaging flurry, Wand didn't do much.

As for the fifth, Silva may have been coming forward, but he was still a human punching bag.

Definitely not, I gave rounds 1,3,4 and 5 to Rich. Thinking Wanderlei won is Bradley/Pacquiao-style judging imo.

unless you scored round 2 a 10-5 round... No!

Edit: I was surprised that not one of the judges scored it 10-8 though. Seemed a pretty clear cut 10-8 to me.

For that to have been a 10-8 Wanderlei would have had to be winning the round going into that last minute, he wasn't Rich was.

Watching it again Rich basically was winning that fight for 22/23 minutes.

edlavis88 06-24-2012 06:09 PM

hmm i always think when you get that close to finishing you should get a 10-8. It wasn't like the Wandy/Bisping fight where he simply rocked and dropped him after getting controled for the rest of the round. He was literally a few punches from finishing the fight and Franklin was completely out of it.

John8204 06-24-2012 06:16 PM

You may wish for that to happen but the reality is 10-8's are only saved for when you see a fighter get dominanted for the full round, dropped or put up no offense. I remember the Dan Hardy/Anthony Johnson fight where Dan was on his back for the whole 15 minutes just holding onto an arm and that was good enough to give him three 10-9 rounds. Rich was dropped twice in the fight in a 41 second period of time but he was able to scramble and even get to his feet with a single.

Not to take anything away from Wanderlei it was a great fight for him, but Rich clearly won that fight 49-46.

Nope. Had it 4 rounds to 1 for Franklin. I wouldn't call round 2 a 10-8 because Franklin was winning the round until he got hurt in the last minute. If Wanderlei hurt him closer to the beginning of the round, I'd be all for a 10-8. That wasn't the case though.

LL 06-24-2012 07:00 PM

Nah I had it 4 to 1 Rich in the discussion thread but I did give Wanderlei the second 10-8, Wanderlei nearly had him done for.

I gave wand a 10-8 second and couldn't remember how the first went. I was on the fence with the fifth until Franklin hurt him at the bell, otherwise I would probably have scored that round for wand and had a draw. When it was over I had rich ahead though. I could see a possible judge scoring it a draw the hiding had been a little weird to that point, but I had Rich winning.
