yeah i agree. Tibau should have done more though. He is clearly better that NURMAUFHAIUF and didnt capitalize at all.

he had 1 cut

Please someone explain how Khabib deserved that decision, because like i said he did he did literally nothing in the first 2 rounds, infact he did less than nothing because he swung and hit nothing and didnt land a single takedown of the dozen attempts.

Tibau picked him apart and took him down 2-3 times.

BS decision though.
I can understand that if you're getting held against the cage and being controlled then you're losing. But I think a solid sprawl should be rewarded, I don't think you should have to hurt somebody to get the points for it.

1 cut + 1 bruise to be exact. Which would imply - if we use logic - that he must have landed more than 'nothing'.

I'm tired of explaining to someone who clearly doesn't want to listen. If you get held against the cage for 13 minutes of the fight, and if your face is the worse for wear come the end of it, and if you're happy to defend rather than mount any offence, you lose the fight. Common sense. Simple as. End of story.

Tibau did everything but 'pick apart' Khabib. We're going to have to agree to strongly disagree on this one. I could maybe see your point were you making a case for a draw (due to negating the takedowns), but if you literally do nothing to win the fight, then you don't deserve to win said fight.

Melvin looks like crap. Just way to tentative and almost seems disinterested.

Maybe not like crap, but definitely not the Melvin I like to see. The guy can be so good sometimes. And other times he's no more than a mid level fighter.

Guillard seemed very hesitant in the 2nd.
