Emerson did not push the fight but was obviously the winner, the judges got this one wrong.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

Agree with Damone

Corey tired his hardest and put everything he had into it.

Emerson got lost.

Well the way i see it he won the first 2 rounds. I don't think Emerson realized that the last round was for all the marbles because he even said in interviews that he thought he was ahead in the scores. Emerson didn't win the last round in my opinion because all he did was backpedal Corey constantly moved forward i think that is the main reason i doubt the judges would judge a fight if someone has a future in the ufc or not.

Seeing as the judges are not UFC employees they are NSAC employees, I don't think they really care who has a future in the UFC.

There's just nothing about him that's interesting. Hill, while being green as grass, at least has somewhat potential. Emerson's a lost cause, and Dana needs to hop off his testicles.
Preach on brother Damone.

If he really felt that he was definitely ahead after 2 rounds and that he could just avoid contact in round 3, he's an idiot. They make it perfectly clear that round 3 only happens in the case of a tie and he certainly did NOTHING in rounds 1 or 2 that should make him think he was dominating the fight. Hill, who having never fought in a cage before, was understandably hesitant but despite that, he was still the one who was pushing the action.

Hill has loads of potential but I don't think he understands yet how to set the pace of a fight. It's for this reason I think he's dangerous against anyone he fights. If Emerson were to have been more aggressive, I still believe he would've lost the fight because Hill would've simply stepped up his game to match Emerson. I'm obviously a bit biased because I absolutely love what Hill brings to the table and his attitude is very refreshing and unique for a UFC fighter. But honestly, at this point in his young career, I think his biggest problem is not being able to leave his own mark on a fight. He will simply react to what the other guy is doing. Emerson's problem was simply he was content to just stand there and Hill had no choice but to be the aggressor.

Oh, and to the OP, that's just sour grapes. As has been said, Emerson was Dana White's personal selection to be brought back and in the interview, he gave the fight to Emerson. It was a very uneventful and boring fight and again, it's been stated already, those tend to go to the more aggressive of the 2 fighters which was Corey Hill.

My Favorites:

Kendall Grove
Andrei Arlovski
Nick Diaz
Jens Pulver
Spencer Fisher
Sean Sherk
Corey Hill
