Gilbert won 1st, 3rd, 5th (2nd was debatable)

Ben only won 4th round clearly

3-2 or 4-1 honestly but could tell they were gonna fu*k him

He wasn't shocked, he was relieved. He knew it was close. But he was just happy the judges made the right decision. Because n*ggas get robbed all the time. Just because he wiped that imaginary sweat off his forehead, he was shocked? Not even.

a) i live on the east coast
b) im white as the day is long
c) i wanted gil to lose just because i think its funny that the cesar gracie camp keeps losing.
i did score rounds 1 2 and 5 for gil though. i would never call it a robbery and i knew he wasnt gonna get the win because the champion always gets the decision when rounds are that razor close.
d) i also think benson beat frankie both times....
a) your heart is in the westcoast
b) you're probably of spanish and or native american decent
c) You wanted Gil to lose, he lost. And I agree, it has to go to the champ if it's that razor thin.
d) Benson did beat Frankie both times. That I agree with too.

I always root for Bendo but gave Edgar the 2nd f!ght and had this scored 48-47 Gil but would have to rewatch to give a more accurate opinion.

want to see rematches with Edgar, Pettis & Melendez...

and wtf how does Henderson get sh*t for being boring? what f!ght of his could give him that rep?

This is the closest title f!ght I can think of, not sure how anybody can be saying robbery for either way.

Yeah i agree can't really call it a robbery. It could have gone either way and in a f!ght that close you already know the judges are gonna favor the champ so Gilbert should have tried to do a little more. And I was rooting for Melendez

f!ghtmetrics is horribly flawed and you can not determine a f!ght based solely on numbers, it doesn't work like that when things like octagon control, aggression, damage, effective grappling, and dominate positions are factored in too, and did I mention f!ghtmetrics is flawed?

Hell you can simply ask yourself who would you of rather been in that f!ght? Melendez or Henderson? And that alone is still a more accurate way of scoring a f!ght than f!ghtmetrics.

It's not as easy tho when you get two elite f!ghters, your talking about less than a tenth of a sec in reaction time. It was a close a.ss f!ght, in which I had Gilbert winning. the 1st, 2nd, and the 5th round should of been Gilbert's. he clear won the first two, and benson didn't do anything except slip punches and backpedal most of the 5th.

By your logic benson will be champ forever, cuz he will win decisions all day. He has close f!ghts with everyone. I think flaw scoring systems have the same logic as you! When really it should be about scoring each round, not using bias towards defending chAmps. In that case it should of been a draw

in a championship f!ght, the challenger needs to clearly beat the champion. melendez definitely did not do that

The fifth round was too much of a tossup. I had the first two for Gil, 3 and 4 for Benson. neither one really acted like they HAD to win that round... Gotta give it to the champ in that case

Go back and watch the fifth round. Gilbert was pushing the pace.Benson was backpedaling the whole second half of the round. Only thing he did was land a couple leg kicks and an elbow.

The whole gotta go with the champ sh*ts annoying. There is a possibility of a draw. Benson would still hold the title, but at least Gilbert gets a rematch. Now Gilbert gets the shaft lol. He goes back to f!ghting guys who don't deserve to f!ght the guy who didn't do sh*t but kick his leg. That's why I cant Gilbert got robbed over this outcome. I think benson had a good gameplan, but it seems like most of his kicks were caught easily, so does he score there? Or just Gilbert?
