Going by UFC judging, it was the right decision. I personally thought that Sene should have won though.

Anyone that denies the UFC scoring favours wrestling can just refer to this fight. I don't think there should have been a 3rd round at all.

Did anyone else notice that the ref called break then Sene let his guard down and dante took him down and the ref just let it continue? Even if its the wrong call when a ref calls break then it should be broken up. Having one fighter stop fighting while the other takes him down is just wrong.

Agreed, as soon as the word break comes out of the refs mouth the fighters should be separated no matter what

I give a lot of credit to guys getting the takedowns and attempting and failing a GNP or subs. While it makes for a boring fight, it shows who is the more dominant fighter.

However, I also am tired of a fighter taking a guy down, doing nothing, and winning decision over an opponent who was throwing shots the whole time. That basically means that a wrestler with no submissions skill or GNP skills could beat a fighter with top tier striking but little to no ground game.

I'm a huge Luke Cummo fan and am seriously getting tired of him getting beat by fighters that simply take him down, eat a bunch of punches and elbows in the process, and win a decision by holding him down for 15 minutes.

WE NEED CLEARER RULES!

I think takedowns should only score depending on what you do with them. If you just take someone down into his guard without passing or take someone down and not land a useful shot then the takedown shouldn't count. Really a take down is just a transition move from one fighting area (standing) to another (ground). Unless you use it to set up something I've always felt it shouldn't be worth as much as it is.

In this fight Dante didn't even land any GOOD takedowns. Hugging a guy and falling to the ground with him after a few mins isn't a good takedown. When you are in a dominate position but take more shots and better shots than you give is your position really dominate? should it be scored that way?

Those are my 2 pennies on the matter anyway.

Huh??? Damage? Pain? There was damage and pain in that wrasslin' match? I must have missed it. The only damage on last nights show was when Rampage knocked over the parking sign.

I know these guys are not UFC caliber, but they are supposed to be professional fighters. That fight was just sad.

There was one, actually. In the first or second, I believe.

I stand corrected. I guess he had one good takedown.
