Dennis Siver and Matt Wiman, already lacking in hype heading into UFC 132 tonight (July 2) in Las Vegas, were charged with following up two exciting first-round finishes.
And they did ... but they didn't.
That's because the bout ended in a tepid three-round decision, although there was a bright spot or two. The problem? Controversy -- again.
Siver was awarded the victory, taking two rounds on the scorecards. When it was announced he was the winner, though, the crowd booed boisterously.
Wiman did very well for himself, employing a grappling heavy game plan that saw him mostly control the fight for the duration. He had a few slow spots but largely did his thing.
He also obliterated his opponent in the second round, opening up a cut that had blood staining the mat.
The final frame was close but you'd be hard pressed to find more than a few folks that agreed with the judges.
Upon hearing the decision, Wiman immediately left the Octagon in disgust. Can't blame him.
How did everyone feel about the scoring in this fight? Fair?
