3rd Round

Ok This is coming from a guy that always favors the ground game and submission artist.

There should not have been a third round. Rampages team got robbed in my opinion and Rampage had a reason to be mad.(even though he was more mad then his fighter lol

That wasn't ground fighting. That was one dude laying on another, getting hit by elbows. I agree completly, that dude won the first 2 rounds and was robbed.

I hate how judges give so much credit to the dude that is on top. Thats why I'm starting to lean more towards Japanese MMA where you get punished for laying, not praised with a win.

that was one of the many benefits to pride. that and the 10 minute first round. If you can't get em in the first 10 (with no break) then you arent likely to get them at all. Also, for the record, i want the carding system as well. you fight harder when your pay is on the line.

I dont think rampage is gonna get his win next week either. Matt Brown fights like someone slapped his mother.

Why? What did Rampage's guy do that warranted him winning? Boring fight, still the right decision though.

Are you kidding?

Rampage's guy through all the shots did all the damage no matter where he was at he was the one afflicting pain. All Forrest guy did was press him against the cage and take him down I could count the times he threw a punch on one hand

Their definitely should've been a third round because I fairly easily saw that Dante won the first round. He kept the pressure on their feet by rushing Rampage's guy and controlled the whole round, whether it was in the clinch, or if it was on the ground. Sure Rampage's guy threw some shots from the bottom, but you got to remember that it is all about being in a dominant position, and Dante was in the dominant position the whole round, no matter how boring it was.

As much as I HATE that fight and the outcome I can't dispute the decision under the current scoring system. If that had been Pride Dante would have gotten at least 2 yellow cards, maybe 3 which would have meant you're done. The scoring system is at fault here not the judges.

If I had to call the fight on judgement based on who did more damage and who did more work in total, I would have easily given that fight for Brandon. He constantly landed shots, even off of his back, had a nice sweep at the end of round 2. Just in general he did more work.

If I were limited to the UFC's scoring system, I regrettably have to give the fight to Dante. He got more takedowns, controlled the pace of the fight, passed guard several times, and tried for more submissions. Even if he spent 14 of the 15 minutes just laying on top of Brandon, there's no choice but to give it to Dante here.

I really hate the idea that wrestlers have such a ridiculous advantage in the scoring of fights since control is a huge factor in the judging. Like old school basketball (and I mean WAY old school) when scores would be 10-6 because there was no shot clock. It's within the rules, no matter how bullshit it is, it's still legal.

Mazagatti really had a hand to play in how muffed up the fight was too. I felt he could have stepped in sooner when Dante was dry-humping dude against the cage. Also the "BREAK - oh wait nevermind - FIGHT ON" call was idiotic in the highest degree. Call it or don't Steve, don't give us a maybe call.

EDIT - I forgot to answer the question. I don't believe there should have been a third round. And again, I regret saying this, but Dante controlled the first two rounds, he won the match based on the scoring system, not on winning the fight.

God damn Dante was such a ******* boring, lame fighter. I think Riddle would have thrown his ass around like a rag doll. **** Dante man, and **** that decision. When people fight MMA like he just did it defeats the whole purpose of the sport. This is a fight, not a grappling match.

Rampage got really pissed there. Kinda awesome. Not surprised he used to go to anger management (do you think he met Jack Nicholson?)...

But Rampage still has CB, so he's definately in the game.
