Oh wow what a night of fights.
Not a fan of the Lawler vs MacDonald fight ? All the fights were good match ups. Granted some guys got their ass handed to them, but you have to give credit to the other fighter. Only thing that tainted this event, was the fact that Hendricks got shafted by these piss poor judges.Not a great fight night, but I enjoyed the last three fights. Seeing Koscheck get KO'd and probably fired was nice. I was pulling for Chael against Evans, but I knew it was a bad matchup for him and that he had no chance. I was surprised at his lack of defense on the ground. You think kicking your legs from back mount is really going to do anything to stop strikes? Ugh.
As for Hendricks-GSP, it was really, really close, probably closer than Jones-Gustafsson. Personally, I had it 48-47 Hendricks with rounds 1, 2, and 4. I thought GSP decisively won only round 3, and round 5 only by his takedowns. Round 1 ended up deciding everything, as they both had a takedown and Hendricks only edged GSP in the striking. Still, I'm not too let down because I'd rather a champion not lose his belt by split or arguable decision. I hope GSP doesn't retire because he's still relatively young and I'd like to see a rematch.
Gotcha, yeah Hendricks definitely won that fight. However the damn point system is a joke, the judges have been notoriously bad in MMA. Anyone with eye sight can see that one man was the dominant fighter for most of the fight and caused the most damage. Hence him being the rightful winner.Was posting in the 166 thread, but yeah Hendricks won that fight.
Oh, I definitely enjoyed seeing Rory get lit up and it's great to see a vet like Lawler finally moving up. MacDonald just hasn't impressed me at all. He has zero movement whatsoever. I really hope Lawler gets matched up with the loser of Brown-Condit because that would be a sweet fight.Not a fan of the Lawler vs MacDonald fight ? All the fights were good match ups.
