WOW……this was a f*cking setup, there is NO way Chael won that fight. One of the judges even scored it 30-27????? BS….
Silva will get the butter from the duck!
F*ck Chael!

SEAN_VANCE Says, in 1-28-2012 at 23:15:06 from    

BULLSHIT! HE did nothing except for the 3rd round….no worries, Spidar is gona hurt this guy…

Genghis Khan Says, in 1-28-2012 at 23:22:32 from    

Chael will get killed if he fights this way against Anderson. I thought Bisping was doing well until the 3rd.

Cro Cop Fan Says, in 1-28-2012 at 23:30:07 from    

I hate bisping but 30-27, what fight was that judge watching? Looks like thy wanted their rematch and got it.

Thepeopleschamp Says, in 1-28-2012 at 23:37:15 from    

Think chael beta get used to his fake belt… Or grow a nut lol

Tempted Says, in 1-28-2012 at 23:39:54 from    

Chael won, but looked like s*** doing it. Bitchping didn’t do anything the entire fight, how could he win? Just smothered Chael on the fence a little, landed a few shots but Chael landed about the same. Bitchping had no take downs which is what won the fight. Chael out pointed him. Still shitty fight. I hope this was just an under estimation because if he looks like that against Anderson he might be the first death in the cage.

The cat is out of the bag, when are all going to realize UFC is rigged. All about money, no longer about the fans, fighters, legacy, nothing!

kung fu k9 Says, in 1-28-2012 at 23:47:14 from    

as much as i don’t like bisping, id rather see him vs anderson then sonnen…

sonnens WWE talking crap is way beyond now, its really on a ridiculous level…

i am not impressed with the mw division

Buster Hymen Says, in 1-28-2012 at 23:51:43 from    

I saw the fight 29-28 Sonnen… Sonnen dominated the 3rd. Just because Joe Rogan was polishing Bisping’s nuts the entire fight does not mean I listen to the guy.

I sure hope Sonnen finishes the beat down he gave Silva the first time.

Hanabahn Says, in 1-29-2012 at 00:04:22 from    

Chael won. He didn’t smash Bisping as I had hoped, but he still clearly won that fight. I say give Bisping the fight with Silva, I want to see him get knocked out again.

pikachumanson Says, in 1-29-2012 at 00:07:31 from    

I’d give the first two rounds to Bisping. It was close though.

Porcelain Porcupine Says, in 1-29-2012 at 00:14:20 from    

Sonnen 10 – 9 – 10
Bisping 9 – 10 – 9
t’s that simple. Besping’s counter wrestling is pretty damn good though. I’ve got more respect for him now.

straightAhead Says, in 1-29-2012 at 00:22:01 from    

I hope Anderson retires within a few days just to spoil Dana’s obvious doctored setup. Those judges had instructions to give it to Chael no matter what as long as Bisping doesn’t pull off the sub/KO.

And then there is Chael’s WWF speech at the end.

What an effin circus the UFC is becoming! Im glad i never have to pay for these figthts

Thanks Bruno!

greengiant Says, in 1-29-2012 at 00:26:08 from    

to say there is no way sonnen won is a little dumb.it was close and could have gone either way is the truth.

donkeyboner Says, in 1-29-2012 at 00:29:43 from    

1. I’m American.
2. I can’t stand Bisping.
3. Bisping won that fight.

boonching Says, in 1-29-2012 at 00:30:10 from    

at the end when they said 30-27, bisping knew he got screwed. that was horseshit. i hate bisping with a passion but that was horseshit.

Dave Says, in 1-29-2012 at 00:36:33 from    

ok I dislike Bisbing but I like to see a fair fight and decesion, that was very very unfair! Bisbing had first and second round no question about it and in the third he got back up after chael had laid and prayed on him and he had the dominant position when the bell went off. so either im delusional or the judges are totally biased or blind.
but I think they didn’t want bisbing to win because they wanna put chael against Anderson and they know most poeple wanted that and its gonna have a huge revenue. I’m unhappy to see that happening to a fighter in the ufc even though i don’t like him. i’m sure he is very angry right now and rightfully so.

Dave Says, in 1-29-2012 at 00:39:57 from    

I have to admit though even though Bisbing Clearly got robbed, i also wanted to see Anderson and Chael go at it. but with this performance there is no way Chael could win

orenthal Says, in 1-29-2012 at 00:44:10 from    

how can anyone claim that bisping won the 1st round? it was even very close.

sonnen even won the standup in that round imo.

MarkNguyen Says, in 1-29-2012 at 00:45:26 from    

1st round draw. 2nd round bisping. 3rd round sonnen. Fight should have been a draw. Rematch asap.

Greaz Says, in 1-29-2012 at 00:47:54 from    

Sonnen won this fight but Bisping gave him a run for his money

MMA is taking over Says, in 1-29-2012 at 00:48:36 from    

I am not a sonnen fan. But this would have been better to watch without rogan’s commentary.
Re-watch round 1 and the first half is All chael, then around 2 minutes left in the round rogan is surprised that bisping is holding chael on the fence and gives him a lot of credit for it just because it’s surprising. But either way round 1 was close, so not surprising it went to chael.
Then bisping won round 2.
Then round 3 was all Chael. He looked sloppy from gassing, but he controlled including back mount and mount.
Not saying that the UFC probably didn’t want chael to win, but I honestly thought that he won rounds 1 and 3.
Joe rogan swayed our minds as a viewer While we were watching the fight

jake ambrose Says, in 1-29-2012 at 00:49:00 from    

over rated sissy. doesnt even look like a solid pro fighter. sonnen you suck. number 2 ranking is a joke. id love to fight his dumb $%!

speedracer27 Says, in 1-29-2012 at 01:00:26 from    

Chael did not look as dominant as he did against anderson Silva with Bisping

King Says, in 1-29-2012 at 01:18:52 from    

First off I don’t like Sonnen at ALL! …..but he clearly won the 1st and last round due to more strike connections and control in the 1st and in the last round he controlled 80% of the round. Bisping needed just a little more time at the end to pull out the win.

Now Sonnen without steroids seems more human now. Anderson is going to destroy him.

hond2dciv Says, in 1-29-2012 at 01:19:05 from    

Pretty clearly 29-28 Sonnen.

Joe Rogan must’ve been high to give both rounds 1 and 2 to Bisping.

Those who gave this fight to Bisping have no clue how to score grappling. I will say that Sonnen looked like s***–I wonder if he was sick or had trouble with the weight cut.

savman Says, in 1-29-2012 at 01:23:36 from    

not a Bisping fan but I did think he beat Chael 2 rounds to 1. Chael looked very sloppy this time out

Louie Says, in 1-29-2012 at 01:44:03 from    

Don’t think it was a setup, Chael won with those takedowns. Albeit a very narrow victory.

tra101 Says, in 1-29-2012 at 01:48:19 from    

chael won hands down, bisping got off alot but chael kept the pressure and scored the take-downs.

whitesword88 Says, in 1-29-2012 at 02:04:52 from    

If a fighter is down 2 rounds to zip how does his alredy swollen roid face win the fight 30-27, yeah bullshit.

bob Says, in 1-29-2012 at 02:16:05 from    

man b.s. juding

T’Challa Says, in 1-29-2012 at 02:16:16 from    

I don’t have a problem with Chael getting the decision, but 30-27?? That judge needs to be fired. Chael was not impressive by any means, even when he had Bisping down in the 3rd he did almost no damage. If Spider is 100%, the rematch won’t be close this time..

wtf Says, in 1-29-2012 at 02:16:47 from    

Chael didn’t do ANY damage!

clumpofdirt Says, in 1-29-2012 at 02:19:19 from    

another crap decision by UFC judges, surprise.

zZz. wait what??? lol

naebob Says, in 1-29-2012 at 02:32:58 from    

wtf ?? i had round one and two to bisping ??!?! That judge is a clueless as the fckn muppets on here. Also i think the way people rate takedowns as such a high scoring move is bollocks becuase he didnt land punches or attempt subs so he did not gain anything. Even with his takedowns he was no nearer to finishing the fight than bisping was to land a lucky punch standing.

ace Says, in 1-29-2012 at 02:35:03 from    

At first I thought bisping got robbed but after watching it 2nd time, i think it was a good decision. sonnen had 3 take downs the 1st round and bisping none. 1 in 2nd round and clearly won the 3rd. But I was surprise by bisping performance, i thought he would get dominated much more. sonnen without roids look tired in 3 rounds though, dont think he could repeat what he did to silva. rogan was so bias towards bisping towards the end though.

manbearpig Says, in 1-29-2012 at 02:42:28 from    

agreed with the smart half of posters, very close fight, not exactly impressive, but also by no means a robbery. Yea sonnens speeches are getting a little wwe to take but hey, gota realise he is just promoting, of course he doesnt beleive the crap that comes out of his mouth. Anyway i think bisping’s takedown defence and ability to get to his feet are better than silva’s so….. lets go round 2… silva v sonnen, i wana watch

tesla Says, in 1-29-2012 at 02:44:57 from    

Really guys?… Sonnen CLEARLY won that fight 29-28 or better, with both 1st and second rounds being somewhat close. The 3rd round was clearly Sonnen’s. With that said, anyone who thought that Bispring got robbed is delusional. Try watching the fight without the commentary and you’ll probably feel different. Bispring ticking away with patsy shots and missed combinations doing ZERO damage doesn’t score well to some judges. Running away (backpedaling), being on your back and taking the most damage in a fight usually means a loss and Bispring clearly didn’t win anything.

BTW, Rogan giving Bispring or anyone credit for standing up after getting mounted or put on his back at this level is just plain silly. ALL the top guys can fight their way out of situations, but Bispring getting extra kudos for his work rate and ability to keep moving is just sad. if this was any other fighter, Rogan would have been saying, “man, he’s down again…. this isn’t looking very good for his championship title shot”. Personally, I like that Bispring is now on the receiving end of decisions since he is the lucky benefactor of many of those in the past.

Matt Hamill approves lol

SamJ Says, in 1-29-2012 at 02:50:13 from    

You Sonnen “fans” are clueless. I’ve always been a UFC fan (since 1994), but this fight made me lose all respect. It’s clear they wanted the rematch. They sold out. Chael didn’t get a 10-8. 10-9 at beat in the third. 29-28 Bisbing won at least in this fight. What a joke.

Silva by ko or submission on April 21. It’s not going 5 rounds. One nut is done. I honestly don’t want to see him fight again.

DavidJones Says, in 1-29-2012 at 02:59:50 from    

sonnen is a bi*ch and anderson is going to kill him, last fight he had a fractured rib, and the way this fight looks like..chael is going down and fast.

buttnugget Says, in 1-29-2012 at 03:00:13 from    

How many warnings did McCarthey give Bisping? “Don’t hit the back of the head Mike”…”Let go of the shorts Mike”…”Let go of the cage Mike.” Bisping is the biggest douche in MMA (and Chael is a douchey guy!). They only keep Bisping around so they can keep the Brit fans watching. The next fight in the UK will have Bisping against a nobody so he can win…mark my words.

DaBigFish Says, in 1-29-2012 at 03:19:36 from    

Chael won, but not impressively… But to those who say Bisbing was cheated out of a win, ask Mark Hammil about cheated… He’d of course have to sign back, but I’m sure he gets the point across – lol.

Drew Says, in 1-29-2012 at 03:42:07 from    

This kind of fight exposes the problem with boxing scoring in MMA. Let’s assume for a second that you give Bisping rounds 1 and 2. Fine, he squeaked them out. But he was soundly beaten in the third round. Are two toss-up rounds more worthy of a decision than one dominant round? This is the same kind of problem in the Fitch-Pierce fight where Pierce smashed Fitch in the third round, but was slightly outgrappled in the first two rounds. If you win that kind of decision, can you really feel good about it?

Robberies or questionable decisions will repeatedly arise if the totality of the fight is not judged.

Drex Says, in 1-29-2012 at 04:04:54 from    

Sonnen CLEARLY won the 1st and last rounds. you idiots arguing that bitchping won the first are delusional and need to check your vision. The spider will crush sonnen with this type of display nonetheless ..

DanielMcfate Says, in 1-29-2012 at 04:07:01 from    

Wasn’t a Bisping fan before the fight but was pulling for him to win by the end. No way was that a 30-27 fight. Sonnen looked like Sh*t and Bisping pressed the action for most of the fight.

cupOteaGov Says, in 1-29-2012 at 04:12:05 from    

As much as I didn’t want Sonnen to win I can kind of see how he won, if you look at the punches he landed on when Bisping was getting his ass up from the floor + Bising didn’t do that much damage push him up on cage… pretty boring fight for the worlds best fighter.

Moe Says, in 1-29-2012 at 04:20:31 from    

Not a hard fight to score 2 to 1 for Sonnen, Bisping we can give the second round too…but that it. Rogan can give whatever opinion he wants lol..must of smoke a puff befor the fight

Moe Says, in 1-29-2012 at 04:21:40 from

NickDiazFan Says, in 1-29-2012 at 05:10:30 from    

Those of you who think Bisbing won, watch the fight on mute. I love Rogan and he’s for the most part on point with his commentary, but he’s a man just like you and i and we all make mistakes. If you think Bisbing won the first round, get off the Rogan Cock! Watch on mute. Chael didnt look great, but he still won the fight hands down.

Nadie Says, in 1-29-2012 at 05:16:38 from

l1fel1ke Says, in 1-29-2012 at 06:37:33 from    

How can anybody really be surprised with this result?

Fact is, the only significant event in rd 1 were Chael’s TD’s which we’ve learned time and time again score well on the judges cards… Bisping had him on the cage for a bit, but that doesn’t mean he was scoring.

RD 2 was the close one with bisping wall stalling successfully but if I remember correctly (didn’t rewatch fight) Chael landed a TD in there somewhere too… Prolly gave him the RD on 1 or 2 cards.

Round 3 was looking 10-8ish until the last 90 seconds. Sonnen was on top, passed guard, mounted and landed a a bunch of strikes for over 3 minutes. Bisping did well to regain position later but still definitely 10-9 Sonnen.

I dont know what most of the people on here have been smoking… but I want some. Definitely Chael’s fight 29-28.

Tankless Says, in 1-29-2012 at 07:07:21 from    

Jesus if you people are gonna cry like this then Id hate to here what Bisping will say FOREVER. What did Bisping do? ….Hump him on the cage ? Stuff Sonnen on some on some take downs? Pitter pat some punches? Sonnen did look like s*** but his cut was hard and Bispings wasnt and he still did s*** to win this fight. Are you saying you want Bisping after that performance to fight Silva? You wanna pay for that dribble? As s*** as it was Sonnen won 29-28 ……the only thing anyone has to cry about is the 30-27 .

fasthandsfrank Says, in 1-29-2012 at 07:18:59 from    

even dana said he scored bisping winning 2 rounds to 1, im happy chael won i had money on the guy but that shouldnt have been the outcome

Taki Says, in 1-29-2012 at 07:32:38 from    

This is getting old now, when did robberies become the norm in MMA…

roadraner Says, in 1-29-2012 at 07:33:09 from    

Rogan just like Bisping too much. How can someone think that bisping won. Bisping did a good defence job at the fence, but chael was the one who attacked and made some TD. Chael won clearly all 3 rounds. I hate Roganfor his unequal judging.
I still think that chael got some chances against Silva. Silva doesn’t have so much Wrestling defence as Bisping. Silva is better standup fighter wither reach advantage but chael is not gone standup fight against silva. Chael is gonna get silva to the fence and ground and do some dirty fighting.

Bigbob Says, in 1-29-2012 at 07:35:46 from    

It’s funny when I watched it live I thought it was closer, after watching again and viewing the fight metrics the decision was spot on. The metric shows that Sonnen actually outstruck Bisping especialy with bodyshots:

Bisping did nothing when he had Chael against the cage, in fact Chael was more productive there.

One thing that made it seem closer was Joe Rogan blabbing over and over about how Bisping was holding Sonnen against the cage. Worst example was in the first, Chael already had two takedowns in the bag and the better of the striking and Joe says ”Bisping is imposing his will more than Sonnen” just because you’re pressing against the cage doesn’t mean you’re winning, you must work with it. In that position Chael actually controlled Bisping by holding round the back of the head.

Ok so I just got to the end of watching round 2 again and I see nothing that would give it Bisping:

Bisping: 50 strikes
Sonnen: 57 strikes + 1 takedown

As for Sonnen looking like s*** I think he did have some issues with the cut, but no matter job done.

brucelee23 Says, in 1-29-2012 at 08:10:56 from    

Guys, Even Dana white and Chael Sonnen thought Bisping won rounds 1 & 2. Regardless, Chael gets the nod, i just hope you American Bisping haters give him his due. He gave Chael a fight and it was not as one sided as you all anticipated !!

alwaysright Says, in 1-29-2012 at 08:11:53 from    

Round 1 – Bisping
Round 2 – Bisping
Round 3 – Sonnen

Simple! They didn’t just rob Bisping, they robbed me! Just like they did in Machida vs Shogun 1. Thats the last time I’l ever put money on an MMA fight!

kbf Says, in 1-29-2012 at 08:14:59 from    

If I were a Brit I would be pissed. I am an American and I am Pissed. Bisping was robbed rounds 1 and 2 for Bisping. Round 3 was a tie or slightly for Chael. Split decision win for Bisping.

drunkentigah Says, in 1-29-2012 at 08:53:24 from    

I think Bisping won.

Brightland Says, in 1-29-2012 at 09:15:41 from    

I had Bisping winning.

PitfighterZ Says, in 1-29-2012 at 11:25:18 from    

First, I don’t really care who won this fight. Anyone saying that the fight was CLEAR in any direction has a big misconception of MMA scoring system, which is b.s.
There are no guidelines to score take downs higher than solid shots to the head or, any guidelines that make any action more important than any other, which is also b.s. It’s all subjective and judges can score fights to a fighter because he thought that fighter looked more aggressive even if the fighter didn’t do sh*t in the fight (Leonardo Garcia for example).
On another note: those who say Sonnen is not on steroids, you have to be kidding me, right? He said he wasn’t going to stop. Just because he has a doctor’s note it doesn’t mean he’s off that sh*t. He probably can’t even train without TRT, being such an effeminate guy. Let’s just hope he kept it in the normal human levels.

agent68411 Says, in 1-29-2012 at 11:34:36 from

LOL everybody who has Chael as a winner ALL say the same thing.Joe Rogan this Joe Rogan that.I dont like him or hate him.But he is right about the 1st round.When your only argument is Joe Rogan is wrong then I understand that you think Chael won.Getting hit with clean shots and getting 2 useless takedowns wont make you win rounds.

Paulwonder Says, in 1-29-2012 at 12:40:37 from    

Bisping was robbed lets face it people keep saying if sonnen fights like this vs anderson silver he will get bashed but the truth is styles make fights. Bisping is a master of getting back to his feet and is also has arguable some of the best conditioning and cardio in mma meaning he outstikes sonnen and gets back to his feet without to much of a problem untill he tried to go for the sub in the last round f****** stupid mistake on bispings part because it opened his defs and let sonnen take his back and grind out the third. but in no way did sonnen win that fight,
I think it will work out better for bisping though because if sonnen can somehow pull off a win vs anderson then bisping will get the belt and if sonnen wins it will also show the way to beat anderson silver and thats by steamrolling him to the matt and smothering him for five rounds.

T’Challa Says, in 1-29-2012 at 13:02:04 from    

It’s true.. Dana did say he had Bisping winning the fight. Just one man’s opinion, albeit one very influential man.

Cyclonex Says, in 1-29-2012 at 13:04:26 from    

Chael was just warming up…hahaha ..Chael just plowed right through bitchping all through the rounds..you can see bitchping getting a little pissed by shoving his face into Chael’s face in the 2nd round and probably was warned after that round.Chael would have cracked bitchping’s rib in the first 15 seconds into the first round.Chael gonna hurt silva for real.Chael going to take the belt.Oh yea..I like Chael’s attitude like I love Don frye’s attitute in Pride.Ohhh I even got don’s autograph at the LA expo..Still a funny guy! Chael going to make pancakes for any MW if they want syrup with it too! 30-27…Yup,Yup!

k91st Says, in 1-29-2012 at 13:18:01 from    

If this is the best Chael has then he is in trouble, and now that i think about it Anderson was playing with him to extend the fight.

k91st Says, in 1-29-2012 at 13:27:39 from    

From 10:40 on Chael hangs on if anything it was a tie, not a clear win, Bisping threw way more. This fight was won on take downs

Mayhem691 Says, in 1-29-2012 at 14:20:34 from    

Sonnen won rounds 1 and 3. Anyone who didn’t see that just hates sonnen. Bisping did no damage in this fight, and the biggest punch was landed by Chael. Besides that I don’t ever want to see bisping fight silva. That would be the most lop sided victory of silva’s career. Bisping can’t hurt his opponents with his standup. That’s why he’s only been able to beat cans his whole career. I don’t like either guy, but this was not a bad decision, the biggest part was rogans clear love for bisping, I had to mute the fight after a while. It was that bad.

JEFF Says, in 1-29-2012 at 14:42:44 from    

Rashad said it best the UFC is not real and is not to far from WWF… Im beginning to believe it.

Sunfish Hero Says, in 1-29-2012 at 14:50:01 from    

Sonnen won the fight. I hate the guy, and this only solidifies my thought that Munoz would have crushed him. If Sonnen can’t lay on top of you, he loses. Hell, he even loses when he lays on top of you.

People who think he’s the #2 middle-weight need to remember he never fought Hendo. Another guy who would crush him; Silva will stop him AGAIN. FFS, he got tapped AND busted for PEDs directly after, Sonnen SOLD himself to the fans with his mouth not his skill.

emrb Says, in 1-29-2012 at 15:20:48 from    

Sonnen definitely won rounds 1 and 3. Could have taken round 2 as well depending on how you view/score a fight. Bisping landed a few of his butterly hands punches to zero effect on Chael and humped him up against the cage for a bit, but not enough to win. Did Sonnen look good? No. Did he win? yes.

Heck, Mikey is the 2nd biggest crybaby in the UFC and he wasn’t even surprised at the call – didn’t even make a sour face.

HardcoreMMAfan Says, in 1-29-2012 at 15:21:41 from    

^ Mayhem691 NAILED it. I hate Bisping but I originally thought Bisping won. He is a much better fighter then people think though. Credit there is much over due. I reviewed the fight again today to see that Sonnen did def. pull out a victory.

Bisping was very impressive but when it comes down to the numbers Sonnen won, not by much, but enough to win. Rounds 1 and 3 were all Sonnen. Silvas going to crush Chael in the rematch if he looks half as sloppy as he did in this fight. Guess the roids really did play a major factor.
As always thanks Bruno. Been a fan on here for years. Much appreciated.

Chael clearly won this fight. I think people expected him to take Bisping down at will like he did in Silva, and when that didn’t happen, all the Chael-haters saw him losing round one and two. In the real world, Sonnen was taking the fight to Bisping all three rounds, and at the end of rounds one and two Bisping was doubled-over like he was about to pass-out.

Chael will destroy Silva because he is not scared to take the fight to him, something most of Silva’s opponents won’t do.

Sonnen is still the baddest man on the planet!

Okay – I’m American and Hamil beat the crap out of Bisping for an unanimous decision in England of all places.

It wasn’t Sonnen’s best performance but probably Bisping’s best. 1st round close but Sonnen edged it out without a doubt – second round – close – edge to Bisping – 3rd round – no discussion – not enough to be a 10 -8 round, but not even close.

What we take from this fight – Bisping has one of the best take down defenses in the game. Problem – no points for it. Holding a person against the fence may be impressive – but Sonnen look to be resting – no damage done. No points for that either. Grabbing onto opponents shorts – you guessed it – no points.

The biggest mistake – Listening to Joe Rogan – wrong about 85% of the time. That percentage is better than his stand up comedy where he isn’t funny 98% of the time. Either way, not good information or entertainment.

Sonnen versus Anderson – it will be interesting. Still a good match up for Sonnen. Stronger in the take down game and he can take a punch. Anderson – psychologically who knows where he is….. Sonnen will bring it to him either way. Still will be a great fight.

I watched this fight at work with no audio on a live feed, thought Sonnen won a clear decision. Rogan’s commentary has been getting worse and worse of late.

No sound!!!!!!! WTF?????

hond2dciv Says, in 1-29-2012 at 16:24:43 from    

Ok, I just rewatched the fight.

Seriously, it is impossible not to give round 1 to Sonnen.

Round 2 was extremely close (Sonnen still was the only one to manage a takedown and no real damage was done standing, but I’ll give to Bisping).

Round 3 was dominated by Sonnen.

I can understand all the newbie fans yelling “robbery!”, but you older posters? Really? Can you really watch that fight and say Sonnen didn’t pull out a close, ugly win?

That is called wrong judging, in America, Europe, Brazil and Jupiter, robbery

sammy Says, in 1-29-2012 at 20:02:14 from    

what robbery? Chael won the first and the third. don’t see how Bisping won the first

@Porcelain Porcupine
i agree, thats how i saw it.

mrl Says, in 1-29-2012 at 21:24:13 from    

Bisping might have landed a few punches but Chael was never hurt by any of them throughout the entire fight. Chael controlled the majority of the fight that’s why he won. Close fight.

mrl Says, in 1-29-2012 at 21:26:20 from    

Who cares how Rogan called the fight? He’s an idiot.

60ndown Says, in 1-29-2012 at 22:04:25 from    

would have liked to see 2 more rounds, but from what i saw bisping got robbed.

Chael Sonnen Says, in 1-29-2012 at 23:04:01 from    

Bunch of idiots.. bisping lovers!! Before the fight they already count bisping out.. Now they protesting that bisping should have won the fight!!Cmon octagon control belongs to me!!

Dave Says, in 1-30-2012 at 00:22:09 from    

I don’t agree with some who say ” Sonnen clearly won the 3RD” sure he did score more point in the beginning of 3rd but by the end bisbing got back up and was on top of Sonnon so he wasn’t clearly wining i’m sure if the fight went one more min the result would have been very different. not to to forget a judge scoring 30-27? that was just a joke!
Sonnen’s little girly punches to the arm and body were weak and didn’t do any damage.

JJ Says, in 1-30-2012 at 04:16:31 from    

The fight wasn’t great, but to say it’s a robbery is nonsense. I watched it disregarding the commentary and it looked damn even. Sonnen had him in bad spots more times (actually Bisping put him in any sort of danger at the very last seconds of the fight, where Sonnen probably let go knowing it’s over in few seconds). He landed here and there but nothing spectacular. you could easily argue for both men winning. On the other hand Bisping won second round, where Sonnen didn’t do much, and 30-27 is an ignorant score.
Just like some guys here said, if Sonnen looks like that vs Silva he’ll go on a stretcher. But I think we’ll see different Sonnen, more motivated and precise.

ibunn Says, in 1-30-2012 at 19:05:31 from    

never been a big fan of bisping but I think he won this fight and I think at minimum bisping has earned a rematch with sonnen or maybe even let him have a shot at the winner of sonnen vs silva.

honkeyloner Says, in 1-31-2012 at 00:58:49 from    

1. I’m British.
2. I love Bisping.
3. Sonnen won that fight.

clemmit Says, in 1-31-2012 at 08:20:02 from    

I am British, i like both sonnen and Bisping so i am kind of neutral. The only reason i would have liked to see bisping win is that he was the underdog, so the upset would have been interesting. But Chael clearly won the fight. It would have been really interesting to see a five rounder there, but Chael won the 3 round fight. No need for a rematch. Chael will also be a way better apponent for Silva.

Dogpitt Says, in 2-1-2012 at 16:31:51 from    

I’ve just rewatched the fight with the sound off for rounds 1 & 2. Sonnen won both rounds. 30-27 isn’t entirely implausible.
Rogan must get royalties for hugging Bisping’s nuts.

jiffyjame2000 Says, in 2-4-2012 at 11:45:34 from    

Left hook larry and dogpitt, you said it all!

Chris Says, in 3-13-2012 at 04:28:01 from    

Bisping definitely won the first two rounds.

What damage did Gale actually do with his p****-ass smothering attempts?

At the very worst it could have been a split decision. But unanimous victory and 1 judge scoring 30-27? Utter fkn crap!

Props to Bisbing for not quitting right there Nick Dias style.
