TUF 17 Finale results: Uriah Hall vs. Kelvin Gastelum Fight Metric report breaks down the numbers

USA TODAY Sports

The Fight Metric report for the Uriah Hall vs. Kelvin Gastelum middleweight final at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 Finale last night (April 13, 2013) in Las Vegas, Nevada, shows some very interesting numbers.

Although Kelvin Gastelum was awarded the split decision victory over Uriah Hall at last night's (Sat., April 13, 2013) Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 Finale, earning him a six-figure contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and glass trophy, there is some controversy regarding whether or not he actually deserved to win.

Few will dispute Gastelum should have been scored the first round but the second and third were close enough that the bout is at least worth taking a longer look at.

Fight Metric, as always, is on the job with the official statistics for the fight:

The numbers seem to support those who believe Hall deserved to win the second and third rounds, though this doesn't clearly show any of the time the two spent on the mat during either round, even if it's scoring takedowns, submission attempts, passes, and reversals.

After all, control and superior position play a big part in how judges score fights. That's an X-factor to consider when looking at these numbers.

Still, it's interesting to see. Any of you Maniacs ready to cry foul on the result of this one?
