Judges' jobbed Hawn. Finally got around to watching the fight, Hawn won the last two rounds and should have won the $100,000 and title shot.

Heiron did not win that fight.The knee was very much legal. If the guy want's to play the damn hand/knee on the ground up and down game then he deserves the shot when it's a bit late. It was already on it's way when the guy was "sprawling" or whatever you call that body flopping maneuver.Joe Riggs looked pretty worried about Bryan Baker, who -more than once- planted his feet, squared his shoulder and began to throw down. Riggs needs to work on his lateral movement and counter hook for when a guy sets up like that in front of you.

Bellator is a joke. I love the idea of it. However every event there are ludicrous decisions. The way the decisions lean is very suspicious.Also, in one of the fights a dude kneed a grounded opponent in the head, and the referee didn't say a word about it and forced the freshly fouled fighter to work his way back up to the feet.Whatever. At least the entire night wasn't a wash. The Arce vs Vasquez Jr. fight on the Pacquiao vs Mosley card was amazing. Was like a real life version of that boxing anime Hajime no Ippo.

It isn't the organizations its the commissions and the biggest culprit is the NSAC being as every one looks to them in regards to both MMA and Boxing. This judging is rediculous. And while the right people won at the last UFC there was some really shitty scores on that card. 50-43 Aldo anyone? This is a trend that is only getting worse.

I honestly don't understand what these judges are watching anymore. It's one thing to circle and counter, but Hieron was circling and barely landing anything in the second and third. Hopefully, Ricardo Almeida becoming a judge starts a trend and we can get people who actually understand what's going on to judge these fights.

 sloppy kickboxing is the new fad for grappling guys lately.  never more disappointed to see a fight have no grappling than nog vs mir. hughes vs renzo was one of the worst kickboxing fights ive ever seen. also would have like to see more ground in gsp vs koscheck and gsp vs shields

I was hoping for a Wrestling vs. Judo grappling oriented match, but we got what I expected, an amateur kickboxing match.
