    Personally I had GSP winning by one round, but said before the decision it was close & could go either way.

    Really don't understand all this "worst decision EVA" BS. GSP took two round, Hendricksd took 2 & one was close that went either way depending on what you prefer. MMA has had far worse decisions.

    I do find it slighty amusing how Dana White is going off on the judges.

    Yet Dana scored 4 rounds to Hendricks, only giving GSP round 3.

    Giving round 5 to Hendricks is far worse IMO than somebody giving GSP round 1.

    its also worth noting all these people bemoaning a decision then saying they gave hendricks the fifth round - dana included.
    EVERYONE scores rounds wrongly, or differently. its the scoring system which is fundamentally flawed.

    I feel for fighters robbed on smaller shows too as them kids/guys/woman don't get a huge pay check and one crappy decision or judge can effect a career before it even begins. Iv seen crappy judging where a ju jitsu judge gives the jitz guy the nod simply because he is a jitz fan and understands what he is trying to do more then the other guy. I believe the ref situation is strong over here but id like to see more of our better judges putting more training on for up and coming judges and eventually there should be licences for judges ran by either a independent governing body lead by somebody we all trust or by one of our more experienced officials. Marc goddard is doing one now so would be nice to see more sign up.
