I had it 30-27 Nunes he won the standup in each round and it wasn't close in any of them and had takedowns in the first and second with the knockdown giving him the third.

That's crazy talk. He shouldn't have got a 30-27 from any judge but Kenny won that fight.

I had it 29-28 Florian.
Nunes won the 1st round, but he slowed down too much after after the first 2 minutes of the second.

When he took Florian down, he was the one defending from the elbows and Florian's kicks.
To this add Florian's TD and control and he wins the rd.

3rd rd was all Florian up until the 90 seconds, when Nunes seemed to regain some of his energy - maybe it was Florian finally getting tired.

Still i don't think he did enough to win the rd and the fight.

Nunes needs to work on his cardio a bit.

I'd like someone to explain to me how one takedown and laying ontop of a guy is worth more than beating someones ass and scoring a knockdown because that is what happened in the third. It isn't that hard to hold a guy down for a minute or two once you get a takedown if you just aren't going for passes or posturing up to use strikes.

That was rd 1.

And even that (the bolded part) is pretty off.

I had it 29-28 for Kenny. The first round was close until the knock down which def sealed it for Nunes.

The second Kenny got taken down but he went for a triangle and his elbows immediately and followed with a takedown of his own with some solid GnP against the fence.

The third round had Kenny pressing the action and getting the takedown. He then passed guard which counts for points (a lot of people forget that passing in itself means something) and landed a couple of solid shots. The final minute of the round Kenny landed a solid knee and a few good jabs and I honestly don't think he was rocked much at the end. He fell to a knee and immediately popped up and dodged a punch at the horn which to me showed he had his wits about him.

In all I think it was a clear victory in a good fight...

Favs
HW-Brock Lesnar
LHW-Forrest Griffin, Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans & Gegard Mousasi
MW-Chael Sonnen
WW-All hail GSP
LW-Frankie Edgar
FW-Kenny Florian & Mark Hominick
BW-Don't really have one but I love their fights

Diego was so close in that 2nd. If he could've just avoided that last takedown he would've had it. His takedown off the cage was awesome.
