Hamil Bisbing a lot acloser than people think.
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 one 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 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. BTW I wanted Hamil to win that fight but after watching it 6 times (tivo) I have to go with the judges. Bisbing won it
