I think the first round was Dan's and the second Ben's, but I was thinking Dan was being pretty one-dimensional and unexciting to just stand there and run the clock (which is what it looked like to me) rather than either let Ben up or try to engage on the ground. I think Dan assumed he was winning after knocking Ben down and rather than risk that changing, tried to run out the clock. It looked bad. I think that's what pissed off the judges who voted to give it to Ben. Then Ben really dominated the 2nd. Looking at the whole fight as a single round, I would score that 10-minute round 10-9 for Ben, so actually in that sense I do agree with the judges overall, even though I voted no because I thought how could they give the first round to Ben looking only at that round. But again, Dan running the clock cost him the fight.
