I agree. I don't think there's any question that Chael won this fight on take-downs but 30 - 27 from that first judge was ridiculous and it certainly doesn't reflect that Chael eked out that win.

People need to seriously stop using this fight as an indicator for Silva vs Sonnen 2. Bisping is very hard to takedown and displayed excellent improvement in his defense. Silva on the other hand has been taken down by Franklin (in the second fight I think), Nate, Hendo, Lutter, Vitor, and Sonnen at will. Its laughable to think that Silva will be able to magically defend the TD so well. Sonnen didn't look awful, Bisping looked much better than anyone could have expected and thus blinded everyone's vision.

It just seemed like to me Chael's offense was more effective. Sure Bisping controlled him on the cage the difference was when Chael was the aggressor he was more effective. It also didn't help Bispings cause that Sonnen dominated the 3rd round. Either way it was an amazing fight and it's sad it wasn't the 5 round main event.

I think as a #1 contender fight that fight should have gone 5 rounds anyway. From a sportive point of view it makes more sense to make contender fights 5 rounders than "main events". So they could make the fighters prove that they actually are really able to participate in a title fight.

Agreed. Fox/UFC announce that all main events will be 5 rounders. Bisping/Sonnen and Davis/Evans were CO -main events. Surely with both fights being main events, they should of made both fights 5 rounders? I mean otherwise, what they said about all main events being 5 rounders is just a lie right? There should be no grey area.

Also, I'd much like to have seen Bisping/Sonnen go all 5 rounds rather than Evans/Davis. Evans had that fight wrapped up early.

Good fight by Bisping regardless the fact that Sonnen looked like shit. Proved that Bisping can handle some pressure and stick with the big guys.

Chael vs. Anderson was and is the marketable fight; everyone knew this. I remember when Oscar De La Hoya moved up a weight class and fought a "tune up" before getting Bernard Hopkins.

His tune up opponent literally ran him over; Oscar's pillow fluff punches did about as much damage as q tips being thrown at a brick wall. But guess who got the "W?" That's right, the golden boy.

I'm surprised fight fixing has taken so long to rear it's ugly head in MMA.
This wouldn't be the first controversial decision in UFC history. There have been much, MUCH worse judements. Calling it "fixed" is ridiculous, it was a close fight.
