I have a feeling they're gonna give it to Mighty mouse, Refs think top control is so damaging.

Monitors don't really do any help when judges flat out suck.

It's Torres' fault for not being a wrestler.

Only wrestlers are allowed to go to decision. Everyone else has to finish their fights.

Miguel tried to finish the whole fight. He was active, constantly changing position. What did Mo do to win that fight? Crap.

Mighty Mouse definitely didn't win that fight. Not that I'm complaining. Johnson won me some money.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Because never locking up a submission attempt aside from that guillotine in the third that was immediately defended properly and escaped is so much more damaging. He won the standup in all three rounds as well as having top position longer, more passes, more time in advanced positions, and more ground strikes landed. Not to mention all of the takedowns he got which are also scored.

Defend from Torres' guard.

What else?

Taking aa fighter down and defending from full guard is the single biggest scoring thing you can do in the cage. You can do a flying cartwheel kick off the cage, knock the guy's mouthpiece clear out of the cage, head bounce of the canvas, and just barely manages to hold on and not be KO'd. Won't matter if the guy gets up and takes you down and defends from your guard.

I had Miguel winning the fight 30-27, but honestly it was so close that you could have picked either guy. The bottom line is that neither fighter inflicted enough damage to convincingly win so neither of them have the right to complain about the decision.
Having said that, this fight was a perfect example of how judges will give a round to the guy laying on top, even if the guy on bottom is doing more and inflicting more punishment while the guy on top is doing absolutely nothing.
Ask yourself, who would you have rather been in that fight? My answer is definitely Torres.
