I think you're going a little overboard. Voelker dominated the third round, but the first two, you could make a case for both of them. Voelker had a take down in the early rounds, but Cote did more damage from the bottom than Voelker did on top. Disagree if you want too, but it was hardly a robbery or a country man conspiracy. I think people see the last round and remember that the most. It stays in your mind. They can't forget how UFC scoring works. A guy barely edging the first two rounds > a guy dominating the third without getting a 10-8 score. I'm not saying I agree with that scoring system, but that's just how it is. We can agree to disagree. I wouldn't have minded if the decision went either way or if even a draw occurred between them.

Both of these guys showed great chins though, it was a fun fight regardless of how some people feel about the decision.
