No, he's saying it should be a draw, 28-28.
Houston would have 10+8+10=28
Kimbo would have 9+10+9=28

I expected them to just bang and finish the fight in brutal KO in round one, but Houston was almost as Gunshy as Starnes was against Quarry and that pretty much cost him the fight. I counted 2 x 10-8 rounds for Kimbo personally.

Last 2 rounds went to Kimbo imo, first round I'm trying to forget about, was like watching Machida fight himself, just running around.

Everyone in the room I was with started singing the Bennie Hill tune for the whole first round.

Control vs Damage?

If Kimbo was throwing some strikes or even an attempt too, then I could say Houston was running. Kimbo could have started to cut him off and make him fight, but he was not doing any of that. So really Kimbo didn't want to fight either. I am sure he wanted Houston to stop bang, but why stop when he was able to land some leg kicks and control the pace of the fight (even though it was a slow pace.

No way Houston should have won that round. Maybe in Ring around the Rosie, but not an MMA fight.
