1st was Melendez
4th was Henderson

Points could be made for either fighter for the other rounds.

Henderson did just enough to probably steal the 2nd round, in rounds that close the fighter that takes the second half of it usually gets the nod as judges almost never give 10-10 rounds.

3rd round was probably Hendersons as well, final knockdown in the round helped tip it his way.

5th round was very close as well with Henderson winning for the first half but then Melendez picking it up and like the 2nd round probably stealing it based on looking best at the end of the round.

Either way you can't really complain about the decision, the fight was just too close to really call and it comes down to personal choice. At least all the judges got it right with 48-47 scores and a split decision. Melendez will likely get a rematch soon though as this fight definitely could have went his way and we all know how the UFC likes rematches in close title fights.

Great fight but terrible decision.

Also I forgot the Diaz fight so Benson is 1-3 in his last 4

The Larkin fight was a terrible decision.

I had it 48-47 Bendo. First two rounds for Gilbert & the last three for Bendo. I don't know why fans keep posting calling a round a 10-10 draw, you guys have watched enough fights to know that is not how MMA judges score fights.

I had Benson winning easily, no need for a rematch.

I will give Melendez credit, I really thought this would be a walk in the park for Bendo but I was wrong. I guess I do owe him more credit than I have been giving him.

The stats don't lie. Hendo landed at least 50 more strikes.

3-2 Hendo imo.

Agreed but after the 1st I didnt think Gil won any of the other rounds. 1st for sure.
