Thought Filthy might have edged it out, but I was hoping those kicks would be enough to get the W.

Both fighters where crap, I blame Lawlor the most because most his fights are crap so it was probably his fault.
I'm glad to see him lose the decsison even tho he probably should have won.

What a god awful decision. Lawlor got the takedowns and landed more punches to the face. Meanwhile Carmont landed some wicked hard kicks to Tom's arms. Why are we scoring kicks to the arms over punches to the face? Are these the same judges who scored the Ross Pearson-Edson Barboza fight?

.....oh wait..... backwards-ass decision favoring the hometown favorite? Yes. Yes they were.

Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.

He also controlled him on the cage. It wasn't a OMG robbery, but I thought under MMA judging criteria it was a sure win for Lawlor or at the very least a draw. BTW I am not a Lawlor fight fan (he's funny but thats about it) so this isn't coming from a biased point of view.

I'm glad Carmont got the win. Carmont is capable of more, as he's shown. Lawlor is just shite at the best of times.

My second favourite part of MMAF.

People whining about decisions while using logic that would suggest that fights aren't scored on a round by round scoring system.


OMG HE GOT MORE TAKEDOWNS HE SHUOLD WIN.


No, actually he only got takedowns in round 2. Which he clearly won. He actually got taken down in round 3 and failed all his other attempts.


I love it, people love to whine about judges yet articulate themselves in a way that makes it evident they'd be incompetent ones.
