First UFC experience - is it rigged?

Hi guys,

First of all, let me say that this was the first UFC event that I've actually watched. I was very excited and really enjoying it, but then after the Hamill/Bisping fight, I was a little confused. Unless I feel asleep during a round, I cannot understand how Bisping won that fight - Hamill dominated every round, although I suppose the final round you could argue for Bisping. So it lead me to believe that the UFC might be rigged and for whatever reason judges were biased towards Bisping, or is there some kind of scoring that I am not aware of? Something that Bisping did early in the fight that he was awarded major points for maybe? To me it looked like Bisping was getting his ass kicked in the first two rounds.

I feel bad that UFC 74 wasn't your first event cause that ppv was downright amazing. This one was...weird.

Not only was Cro Cop losing disappointing for everyone, but as you mentioned, the Hamill/Bisbing decision was unbelievable...i mean really unbelievable.

All I can say is give the UFC another shot, that UFC made me feel like shit. Especially cuz I was like 1 in 10 that picked Hamill to win by decision...

im sorry that was your first one!! lol there have been much better and cleaner UFCs then that.


bisping did get his ass kicked. you missed nothing there. im hoping that the fight wasnt fixed but... after watching that theres no way that he should have won, no one in their right mind would have scored it the way they did.

Thanks guys. Due to your enthusiasm, I will give UFC another try.

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.

Many MMA fans will defend the UFC and tell you it's not rigged, my recommendation to you is to observe any other free matches on Spike at your own discretion and make your own mind up on that. Remember, UFC is a business and is being run as one. The UFC wants to break into the UK, so Bisping losing wouldn't fare well for them.
