Lawler Victory Via Damage!!!

So this is my first fanpost go easy on me ;) I just felt like I needed to talk about this so lets jump right in!

Basically after the last welterweight title fight everyone was pointing to GSP's face saying stuff like "How did he win look at his face he clearly lost! rabble rabble rabble!" Now I am a proud GSP fan and had scored it for Hendricks and was shocked to see him win. I immediately watched the fight again and found the first round to be a swing round. Many MMA fans cried fowl and looked to the physical evidence... Johny did a considerable amount more damage in that fight no question. But that's how the scoring works in a round by roung system. Is it a flaw? Probably but I am not sure how you fix it and I dont see it being fixed any time soon.

Now the other night I feel that Johny survived a scare in the middle won the fight going by the rounds winning 1, 2 and 5. If you rewatch the first its actually pretty close but I still have the two competent judges correct on their cards. But lets have fun and add damage! Below are a couple shots of the makeovers they gave each other.

Maybe because in this fight it was a little more clear who won (by the rounds) but where are the people who cried out "Look at the damage!" in the last title fight. Johny even asked this quest last time around and I have a feeling Lawler is asking it now.

One things is for sure it was a hell of a fight and I hope these two are put in the cage to go at it again.
