Cause I didn't think it was 30-27
go for it
It was def 30-27. Very competitive, but Gustafsson always did a bit more than Shogun in each round.
i thought the first round was very close and could have gone either way but the second and third round were definitely for Gustafsson.
i completely disagree with the judge that scored it a 30-26 but atleast they were consistant becasue there was alot of 10-8 rounds last night
1st round was closest I think.
Yea yea. I may b totally wrong but when I watched I thought he won round one and maybe kinda sorta coulda eeked out r two. And then got smashed in the third. But although shogun looked like shit I still think it was very competitive
Should've been 29-28 all across.
I thought Shogun just edged the first but Gustafsson won rd 2 and 3
Watch it again. . 27 30 all day.
I thought Shogun won the second but Gustaffson clearly won the first and third. Wasn't really any question who won
Strength - I don't get how people can say Gustafsson won the second round clearly, then say the first round was debatable
Shogun had a better first round then Gustafsson supposedly had a second round
In the first, Shogun had one takedown, Gustafsson had one takedown
Shogun also defended a takedown.
Shogun's sick half guard sweep transition to leg lock attempt should have given Shogun the edge in the grappling. That leg lock was tight too
On the feet Shogun landed the better strikes.Gustafsson's uppercuts weren't finding the mark cleanly
The first round was very close indeed, but Shogun earned the round based on the facts.
I don't see how any one could give Gustafsson the first round just because it was close
That would be like saying, the patriots only won by a field goal. It was too close so let's give it to the other team instead
No if you win you win. Shogun won the fist round without a doubt
The debatable round was the SECOND round
Shogun was owning the first half of the second round when he had the gas. Landing big over rights at will
Unfortunately Shogun gassed out and then Gustafsson won the later half of the second round
That's why the second round was close, because Shogun gassed. Shogun was winning it until he gassed
But even then, I feel Shogun won the second round due to landing the cleaner and harder strikes of that round
Gustafsson's punches weren't hurting Shogun either, but they weren't landing as cleanly,
And plus Gustafsson did nothing with his takedowns in that round. They were simply to score points
Shogun edged out the second round due to landing the harder and cleaner strikes
Yes, Gustafsson ran away with the fight in the later half of the third round beccause Shogun was even more gassed and was fighting poorly
Gustafsson finished stronger.
As a whole Gustafsson won the fight by a good margin (because of the 3rd round) but many dont seem to understand that based on the round by round scoring in the UFC, Shogun should have won the fight due to edging out the first two rounds
When Shogun had the gass he looked like the better striker and better grappler
Gustafsson won due to his chin, cardio, and game planning
Exactly how I felt. Gusto won I guess but based of the 10 point scoring system. I think shogun could have won.
Cause I didn't think it was 30-27
Yea I was real close to making this thread. I'm not a Shogun fan but I was rooting for Shogun.
I actually looked at the RD. by RD. scoring of several sites this morning. A couple gave Shogun Rd.1 but most gave it to Gus. To me it was a 10-10 or a 10-9 for Shogun.
All of them Gave Rd.2 to to Gus and I guess I'll need to rewatch that round.
I was really surprised by the scoring overall.
On a sidebar Gus has a FRIGGIN CHIN!
crap, I kept expecting him to at least stagger but he did not. Shogun knocked out lots of guys with the shots he put on Gus. He hit him clean and hard with overhand rights.
