    Default Varner fight

    How did he not win this fight? Even without the point, I think he should have won. He def won the first 2 rounds IMO and prob lost the 3rd just based on the takedown. I'm so confused. This was even worse than the Hammill/Bisping decision to me.

    One judge got it right. Peoples was in the middle, surprisingly, though he had it wrong too. But the one judge scored every round for Salorus.

    I will admit, Shalorus is a beast. He is like the terminator. I think somebody was scoring the leg kicks very highly. I was surprised how effective they were. They may have been influenced by the Aldo fight. I doubt Varner wants to go through that again.

    Bottom line is that Varner outboxed him all three rounds, but got neutralized on the ground in round 3.
    29-27.

    Keep in mind if for any reason round 2 was given to Shalorus, it was in fact a draw, as Peoples had it. 28-28.

    It was not the biggest robbery. But it was not a good call.

    Hammil Bisping was worse.
