28-28 for the Kimbo vs Houston fight....?

Who thinks it should have been a tie? 10-9 for Houston in the 1st and 3rd, then 10-8 for Kimbo in the 2nd?

People seem to forget that aggression is also a scored factor. This was something Houston extremely lacked tonight and what I believe cost him the fight as it was really Kimbo pushing what little action there was.

Agreed. I didn't even question the win in any way shape or form.

Also, I really didn't count many of those leg kicks thrown by Houston in the first round because the were pretty much worthless and had no power.

Alright I gotta stomp this rumor right here. The fight metric will really show this fight for what it was.


Houston landed like 100% of all strikes in Rd1, and Kimbo didn't throw basically a single punch! Houston was the aggressor with leg kicks, Machida style.

10-9 Houston
10-8 Kimbo
10-9 Kimbo


Kimbo had Octagon control which should be taken into consideration. I think one could even argue that because of how the ruling system works that Kimbo could have gotten round 1 also. I think Kimbo is the one that had the center of the ring the whole time and was the one going after Houston while Houston just kept circling around.

You mean this?

Which happens to agree that Kimbo won the fight...

All Houston did was land soft leg kicks and run around the ring.

Kimbo dominated the 2nd round and they were both pretty bad in the 3rd round but Kimbo got the take down and was the aggressor and as such did and should have won the fight.

The one 30-27 score was a little weird but Houston barely did anything in the first round too.

I gave Kimbo round 1 for sure, 30-27 was my score before the decision was made. Houston ran away the whole round while Kimbo followed him. You cant give a guy a round for running away and throwing tthe odd leg kick. He didnt let Kimbo fight in that round he just ran away. Round goes to Kimbo for octogon control.
