Explain to me how Bisping winning was anything to do with the 10 point-must system.. It was just bad judging, nothing to do with the system. If those judges were good judges it would of been 30-27 unanimous for Hamill. The system is fine.

Wow good point! So I guess it's quite plausible that the UFC had a vested interest in Bisping.

i would say the way it's scored is wrong. I firmly believe that when you have a round like ramapage/henderson round 2...you can't leave it to judges, especially, when alot of people think have an agenda to follow, to pick a winner. that round was toooo close. it should have been awarded 9 - 9.

WTF!?! I been watching UFC from the begining, and while there some bad or questionable calls in the past for some fights, the Hamill decision was ABSOLUTELY FIXED! Here is why...

1. They want the Euro Market bad enough to give Bisping to make more revenue overseas.

2. 99% of all the MMA viewers are saying the same thing.

3. It was obvious to everyone who won that fight. The proof was on Spike TV!

That being said, it was beyond a bad or unpopular call, that was handed to Bisping and that means it was fixed!

I am happy to hear that I wasn't dreaming when I watched Hamill kick Bisping's ass. That decision still concerns me though. I mean either they hired very bad judges or something was fixed in that fight.
I think the fight was much closer than a lot of people think. I have been watching MMA for over 7 years and know a lot about the sport and how the judges score. Matt Hamil won the first round easily all of the judges scored it that way but round two and three it could have went either way Hamil scored some take downs but did nothing once down there and Bisping got right back up(judges eye neutral outcome takedown=2 pts escape = 2 pts) on the other hand Bisbing landed many more shots on his feet and gave very good angles. Additionaly he threw punches in combos which also scores points opposed to Hamil throwing in on or two at a time. Combine all of that and the fact that it was in Bisbings home and you have a fight that could have went either way in the judges mind, and it did resulting in a split decision. IMO Matt Hamil should have found a way to finish he had Bisbing broke and as a former wrestler and AM fighter he should have seen that and finsihed him when he was on the ground, but he didnt have the gas left in his tank to do it. Matt Hamil is a good fighter and an inspiration to a lot of people myself included but he is still a B level fighter and has a lot of work to do. He needs to get out of NY and go back to Big Bear with Tito where he can learn to improve on his weaknesses GnP and conditioning.

Even Bisping's fans were disapointed, everyone though that Hamill won.
