How could rd 1 be worth the same as rounds 2 and 3??? Alvey got destroyed in that 1st round and may or may not have won the last two.Round scoring needs to be adjusted so that close rounds aren't scored the same as very uneven rounds.

Amassou gassed, he did nothing in round 2 and 3, I see why he lost with the unified rules, Alvey countered him a couple times with straights when he rushed in, plus he kept landing on the bottom after a takedown

I did rewatch because I was pissed! What I recall seeing is Alvey throwing, but not landing. The flurry at the end of the 3rd, perhaps 2 of those punches out of the 30 landed.Agreed that Amassou should have been more aggressive, but I still think he was robbed. Those throws to mount were damn cards were rounds 1 and 2 to Amassou, round 1 could have been a 10/8 round even. Alvey looked real bad in round 1.I would like to see a... uh... what's the website that tracks punches thrown/landed/etc.. ? I want to see that.

Amassou won round 1, but if you rewatch the fight Alvey landed more strikes in 2 and 3. It was a close fight, but I think it was a good decision. I believe that if Amassou would have committed and thrown combinations he may have won the fight.

Middleweight QualifierSam Alvey def. Karl Amoussou via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)Amassou was robbed. Alvey did not win that fight. Every week the Bellator judges ruin a fighters record because they value wrestling too highly. It's not a wrestling match judges, and those couple scrambles Alvey wound up on top don't come anywhere near the beating Alvey took, the technique both in striking and judo Amassou showed, and the shots he landed. Ridiculous.
