This is exactly how I saw it on a second watch.

What happens if you take centre,push pace yet you're the 1 getting blasted in the face more? Judging/scoring right now is a complete farce and even a sudden victory round would make more sense right now- with the current setup, it should be kept as far away from the judges hands as possible.
Gotta feel for Bigrig man
Well something needs doing with the judges and scoring criteria as Hendricks clearly got the better of him in fighting terms which is what should count.
Carlos Condit - "W T F.... Worst decision EVER"
Michael Chiesa - "What a joke. A fucking joke. NSAC should be disgusted."
Jamie Varner - "Wow that is garbage! @JohnyHendricks won that fight!"
Tim Kennedy - "One guy looks like he got run over by a big rig and the other guy looks like he went for a run. Bad decision. "
Tim Kennedy - "Dear Nevada Athletic Commission, Decisions like this is how you killed boxing. Don't kill my sport."
Ben Askren - "So I guess that makes me the undefeated, undisputed champion of the welterweight division."
Mchael Carroll "Hendricks' 85 significant strikes landed are the most St-Pierre has absorbed in a UFC fight."
Pat Miletich - "The 20th anniversary of the the UFC is tainted by the worst judging decision in the history of the sport. F'ing clowns."
Pat Milteich - "This is what happens when you have people who sell insurance by day and judge by night. The judges need to be fired!"
Jimi Manuwa - "I'm not being funny but johnny Hendricks won that fight."

Urijah Faber - "Best 3 out of 5 judging system could work. 5 judges, majority wins. Then start eliminating judges that always blow it. @ufc @danawhite"
Sarah Kaufman - "GSP gets a split decision but that's insane! Hendricks won that fight #ufc167"
Todd Duffee - "Robbery"
Lorenz Larkin - "that's fucking bullshit"
James Krause - "Can we please get an open scoring system?!"
James Krause - "That makes me sick to my stomach man. #UFC167"

Jimmy Smith - "I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT!?!? WTF!?!?"
Kenny Robertson - "wow, ufc you need new refs.... #BULLSHIT"
Dan Henderson - "I'm not really liking the judges this year. I thought Hendricks did great."
Shannon Knapp - "I bet @JohnyHendricks literally feels like he fought the great fight & when the fight was over, he got his teeth kicked out. He got my vote."
Evgeni Kogan - "In my opinion, and taking into consideration the importance and prominence of the fight, this was the single worst decision in MMA, ever.

John Dodson III - "WOW Really #UFC167"
Kim - "Hendricks got robbed"
Daniel Cormier - "If this is last fight for @GeorgesStPierre I am so sad. I wish I never asked a retirement ? We will miss him when he's gone."
I Personally dont think it was as bad as most people are making out. After watching it again its super close.
But need to take into consideration the damage and the fact that hendricks had him wobbling at one point. How much of a factor does that score?
Some of you guys really new to remember it's not about getting cracked with bombs...
If GSP lands 10 shots (5 jabs, 5 hooks) that's 10x better any day of the week than Hendricks landing 1 haymaker and bruising GSP.
It wasn't a robbery GSP won and if the return match happens I expect GSP to win again because now he's fought Hendricks his plan will be so much better.
Baby cakes you also need to remember that your post is irrelevant because none of them are fucking judges.
I might go through it later minute by minute and split everything up and post it here.
Yea your right none are judges but there opinions matter more then yours mine and 95% of this forum. The 5% obviously been the high level officials promoters and fighters.

But they don't!!! Thats the thing!!!
They're not in the fight and they're not judging. They're just fighters as we are viewers. I'll break it down later, I'll make a thread and post everything.
Ok mate not trying to discredit you or anybody else as I know a lot of you have been around the sport a lot longer then me but Saturday night I was 99% sure he had won it hell I was even out of my seat with the dog cheering. ha
That's fair enough, the only point I'm trying to get across is the fight is decided by 3 judges. 3 judges that have impaired vision at point due to camera men, ladders, cage posts and the referees. Things get missed, it happens. What makes it easy for the common fan to slate a judge is Joe and Mike constantly bigging one guy up, commenting on 'oh he's dropping bombs', it sways you, it really does. If you watch it on silent, 6-7/10 you'll see a completely different fight.
