Here's how I saw it after rewatching.
R1: 10/9 Bader
better striking, good ground and pound.
R2: 10/9 Bader
still had the better strikes and power shots. Not an overwhelming round, but Nog didn't get anything going.
Nog had it, but Bader came back in the last 2 min. and lander power shots on the feet and took Nog down and held him the last 30 sec. It's possible Nog still won that round, but just barely if he did. I can also see why some think Bader won that round.
This is why I"m giving Bader a shot against Jones. I think Nog is a better technical striker than Jones and better technical defense, and yet he couldn't get anything going against Bader, nor stop Bader from landing big shots. Bader moved nicely and didn't take any power shots the whole fight. There's something to be said for that as it's no small achievement.
The difference is, Jones does have takedowns, where Nog does not. Then again, does Jones have the escaping abilities that Nog has?
