Judges suck. We all know that... they love visual shit -- mouse under GSP's eye -- give the round to Shields... Some gnarly and pretty (but not very damaging) suplexes by Rory, give him a 10-8 round on Nate... par for the course. We all know better.
And for the record, Rory won me some coin, but 10-8 on that? It did look hella impressive, but none of those slams even stunned Nate. That's why fools like Leonard Garcia and his flailing (and exciting looking) punches steal decisions. Judges are like dumb pets with visual crap. Feed 'em a treat, and they are in your pocket. F*ck effective octagon control, aggression, and all that other garbage.
