Heading into the final round, Johny Hendricks, Robbier Lawler, both corners, and virtually everyone watching thought Hendricks won the first two rounds, Lawler won 3 and 4, and whoever won the final round was the new UFC welterweight champion.
There was however a notable exception - Judge Doug Crosby.
All three judges score the fight 48-47 for Hendricks, but Crosby got there via an a different path.
Judges Aladin Martinez and Mike Gonzales scored it rounds 1 and 2 for Hendricks, 4 3 and 4 for Lawler, and 5 for Hendricks. However, Crosby saw Round 2 10-8 for Hendricks, and the final round a 10-10 tie.
