hopefully people will try harder to not go to the judges now....oh wait you would think they would of learned their lesson by the the hundreds of other bad judged fights
So basically someone who deserves the win doesn't get it because they didn't finish. That doesn't make since.

You just described a situation that we see somewhat often.

It doesn't make sense and that is why everyone is upset.

I do not like the UFC stats lying about strikes landed, Frankie outlanded Bendo.

Yes, he did. And what's even worse, they bought fightmetric so you can't trust their stats either.

That doesn't matter. What matters is that two judges think that Henderson barely (because they can't give draw rounds) beat Edgar by 48-47, and one of them thinks that Edgar clearly won the fight 49-46. If you add the total rounds by the three judges, Edgar won by one .

I think Edgar barely beat Henderson, but he did it. Except for the fist round that was clearly Henderson's, Edgar did more than Henderson in the other 4, in some a little more, and in the 2nd a lot more.

But hey, it was a tough fight to call, nevertheless.

They can give 10-10 rounds, they just don't because they are incompetent.

Well, then they should have given at least one 10-10 round. That one probably went to Henderson in the two judges that gave him the win. So for a draw round that they didn't judge, Henderson retains.

I had the same. Round 3 was too close to call, so a draw was in order. In the other two Frankie did a little more, more hard hits and more control, but enough to get him the round.

They probably didn't count the body punches because they know that the judges don't. I've been making an active effort to not be upset about it; I don't want my memory of another fight I really enjoyed to be clouded by disgust for the awful judging like Diaz/Noons 2 and Kampmann/Shields.
