Herman/Smith was really close, I had it 29-28 for Herman but those rounds could have gone either way. It was a sloppy brawl type fight where Herman scored "points" while Smith did damage.
Cruickhank/Edwards was a Kicker vs Puncher fight, Cruikshank circled for 15 minutes while Edwards pushed the action and out boxed Cruikshank. It came down to which you valued more, volume or octagon control it was an ethical fight where you had to take a side and award all the rounds to one or the other.
Kedzie/Randamie was a very strategic fight. Kedzie was basically completely outclassed by the bigger stronger more talented GDR. In the first GDR beat the crap out of Kedzie, in the 2nd Kedzie fought smart didn't take a lot of damage and got a TD and stall, 3rd Kedzie tried to do the same thing and almost got away with it. Basically Kedzie did the stuff Quitinberger should have done tonight so the judges threw her a bone.
