Same thing happens in boxing. How is anybody surprised by this? If you wanna beat the reigning champion, you need to knock them the **** out. You'll never get the decision. Which sets up a rematch. It's that simple.
Hendricks didn't get robbed. To beat the champ you can't leave a doubt. I thought he took 3 of five but it could have gone either way. He needed to do more.
Bahaha a good percentage of people saw it much different than you did...but keep paying the money!
I think hendricks won the fight, but it was close because of the champion factor that you have to win clearly. Hendricks didnt do nothing to win 5th round in my book which was exactly the time for him to prove he wanted the belt.
I still think he won, but it's more tight than what people makes it to be
**** with the champ has to be clearly beaten crap, look at GSP's face compared to Hendricks. Hendricks landed more significant strikes, more takedowns and won 3 rounds clearly. What the **** do you want more
I think hendricks won but lets be honest here he looked like **** in the 5th round
Are you guys kidding? Gsp isnt retiring.
Yeah, Hendricks deserved the decision but it wasn't a dominant performance by any means. Hendricks striking is still sloppy as **** and he looked like poop the last round. I'll give him props but I'm not convinced he's anything special. Maybe a combination of catching GSP at the tail end of his career and a challenger rising to the occasion. Time will tell....
