Why the complaining about Warren/Galvao?

Just watched the fight and easily see how the judges gave the fight to Warren.
The only round in question on the 30-27 scorecard for Warren should be the 1st round, and even then it is conceivable that Warren pulled it out.
I think a lot of the problem lies with people having expected Warren to get every takedown he tried, Galvao thwarting some attempts and surprising people who watched the fight. In rd 1 Galvao was able to stuff a few takedowns and end up in mount and on Warren's back, but realistically did little with the positions. Warren continued to move forward and conrol the cage the entire time. He simply outworked Galvao in rd 1.
Round 2, Galvao landed some nice knees but Warren got takedowns, moved forward and pressed the action the entire time.
Round 3 was all Warren.
Don't see what the big hullabaloo is about...
