    This is the controversial one. All 3 scored it differently and none got it correct. 2. round draw and one round for each.

    The Sherk-Dunham fight was just a complete miss. 29-28 for Dunham obv.

    you all act like its surpising that judges have blown it for years. are we all the niave now? i can name 10 bouts off the top of my head that were complete bs.

    noone agrees with me but we really need to go back to the pride system of judging. agression, strikes landed, damage done etc. ik the ufc says thats how they judge it, but lets be honest they can only judge wrestiling matches, otherwise they screw it up every time

    its crazy that ppl think that Jeremy Stephens should have won that fight he made him stumble 2 time and landed leg kicks but thats about it. melvin blasted him in the face over and over and Jeremy Stephens hit him like four time that was not a leg kick. foot work is a skill ppl. a person should not have 2 “stand and bang!” or what ever that dumb sh#$ is to win a fight. I guess its the BB rule in full effected.

  • Cronos

    Yeah he was definetly off balance for the body shot, and the first punch he was also off balance from the huge hook he threw.

    WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING BOUT! Melvin won the fight with out a dout. and what the hell greg jackson have 2 do with anything he is just a dam# couch. I have when ppl act like he is has sumting 2 do with the judging in every state like really! jeremy work a good leg kick game and the end but thats 2 little 2 late. you have to hit somebody more than 4 times in the face or body to win a fight. the only thing Im mad at melvin is that once again he didnt use his takedowns if he did that he would have won even more and maybe finsh the fight

    I guess its cool when franky and kenny use foot work to win fignts but not melvin……B&B rule in full effect.

    You are spot-on my friend. Its ridiculous to say that Stephens was anywhere near a victory. Stephens was simply outclassed for 15 minutes. LOl @ anyone who blames Guillard for Stephens inability to land much of anything on him… A well deserved dominant victory for Melvin G!!

    @ Joey_Santosus thank you I appreciate ppl with brains that can see a fight 4 what it is. I shall add you 4 yo realness lol.
