i agree that Thomson got robbed. i gave it to him 3-2, but i can see how Henderson could have won it by being aggressive, and it didn't help that Thomson's striking had to be controlled due to his hand.
glad my dudes Cerrone and Cruickshank won!
i had Hendeson winning just based on how MMA judges are. not saying i agree with the decision, you can pretty much steal fights nowdays by looking like you're winning....... (attacking without necessarily scoring, controling position)
i had Thompson winning 1 & 4, Henderson winning 2 & 3, 5 was the swing round
it was close in my mind, henderson is my fav fighter so i am a bit biased, but i feel the decider was bendo controlling the octagon for the most part, he had josh close to or up against the cage a lot of the fight when it was standing. i went back and watched it for a 2nd time, if ppl think thomson won the fight i could see where people would think that. but he didnt get robbed. that term gets thrown around too much these days. gsp over hendricks was a robbery.
