I voted yes, half of it is my personal opinion. That is, I don't feel a fighter should just stand there and do nothing significant, but w/in those 5 minutes throw what... 5 leg kicks?
The other part, is Emerson didn't do anything, but those leg kicks, nothing significant. The scoring system is also based on ocatgon control and aggression - the fact is Corey was pushing forward, Corey was leading the exchanges, and Corey was getting the better of the exchanges.
They both were inimpressive and neither deserve a shot in the UFC after those performances.

F'n A. He is is the Pedro Rizzo of the LWs with no KO power. He needs to learn to be aggressive.

How? First fight is an embarrasing, inimpressive lose. His second chance he shows no aggression and does nothing significant. Neither did Corey, but he was more aggressive and pushed the pace. The UFC shouldn't give contracts to fighters based on how people feel for them, they should base it on talent.
