Never thought I would say this. I was so confident going in to the fight that Henderson would beat Melendez in every area and easily get a 49-46 UD if not a 50-45. But No.

In my opinion, I scored the fight for Melendez Rd 1,2,5.

Yeah, it was a close fight. The entire fight itself is close from bell to bell. I won't argue either way.

It was really close, basically a coin flip decision. I was watching with some friends and none of us could decide who won. Bendo is really lucky he always squeaks out the close decisions though!

Do you guys think that it was the corners fault for Gil? I seem to see this alot from the Cesar Gracie corners Diaz Bros fights. They always seem to tell there fighters that they won a round and are up in the fights when they either are not or they are close rounds. Gil in the post fight presser said he let off the gas after round 2 which I believe is when Jake told him he had won both rounds. It he would have told him keep up the pressure dont let off these are close rounds then maybie Gil would have went a bit harder like round 1. Seems like kinda bad cornering sometimes from Cesars corners.

Very good, close fight. I gave it to Bendo 48-47, plus I think you gotta come and take the title - in extremely close decisions the judges will go with the champion more times than not.

I don't think it was a robbery at all. Close fight doesn't equal a robbery. Pacqiao/Bradley was a robbery. This fight could have gone either way.

It was a close fight but I think Bendo won. Melendez faded in the later rounds.

Very close fight, but I scored it 1-2-5 for Melendez.

Hendo was more aggressive during the last minute of the second round which is what I think made it appear that he had taken the round.

Either way, Melendez should not have let up the pressure! argh

No. It was an incredibly close fight that could have gone either way. You take credibility away from the word 'robbery' if you use it for every decision you disagree with.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Agreed, very close fight. Would not have been a robbery regardless who got the decision. imo.
