Another draw round; Tibau is way too worried about gassing.

Why should you be awarded a point advantage for failing to take someone down?

Look at the friggin size difference between these two. How are they both in the same weight class? Tibau must cut mad weight. Very bulky for 155. I know that's old news, but I notice it more when he fights someone significantly smaller than him.

It's called cage control. I don't always like it myself, but if it comes down to the man being held against the cage, and the guy doing the holding, common sense says you award the person in control.

Putting on pressure the entire fight > not

He's right up there with Maynard and Henderson, he may even cut more than they do.

In no way does Tibau deserve the nod. I have no idea what Joe is smoking, and I consider him a very intelligent analyst.

Neither of these guys deserve any points. 0-0 ******* erase the existence of this fight.

Tibau landed more strikes in that position so I consider it a wash. You don't get trophies from me for being a failure. Lol at getting a win for trying **** the judges in this sport what is this little league.
