Thank you for the fast uploads Bruno!!!

axe pittbull Says, in 11-17-2013 at 01:14:41 from    

My opinion. The champion MUST be KO’d or submitted. Therefore, GSP must retain the title and decision was accurate.

axe pittbull Says, in 11-17-2013 at 01:16:00 from    

And always big shot out to Bruno. Always appreciated…high speed upload. Thank you boss!

Thanks for the upload Bruno.

Huge fan of GSP but I had him loosing that fight 49-46 (maybe 48-47 at best).

Twana Says, in 11-17-2013 at 01:21:41 from    

I thought Hendricks tapped at the beginning of the first round (the choke).

The worst decision in the history of the UFC. I feel so bad for Johnny

@ axe pitbull

You’re such a dumb a** I understand you said it was your opinion but dang! What a dumb thing to say

Liberty Lake Says, in 11-17-2013 at 01:28:45 from    

Bad call there. GSP won 1 round or maybe 2, thats it
Hendricks got robbed

olajoe808 Says, in 11-17-2013 at 01:30:41 from    

GSP, watched your fights for a long time. Didn’t think much of you at first but you left an impression that will live on. Live your life, get out on top. Nothing to prove to anyone so don’t let anyone convince you otherwise.

axe pittbull Says, in 11-17-2013 at 01:34:50 from    

@ pitbull eater-
guarantee you wouldn’t say that to my face. promise u that.

he holds the belt. ko him or submit him. bottom line.

The champ should always wins if the fight is close.

Hendricks got ripped off!

mac Says, in 11-17-2013 at 01:49:59 from    

Hendricks won the fight but he did tap within 20 seconds of the 1st round while in the choke, can’t believe Joe Rogan didn’t comment on it. Watch the video again.

shiznit Says, in 11-17-2013 at 01:50:44 from    

I had GSP winning 2,3 and 5. Three and five two me were more clear. I didn’t think the judges would give GSP round two because Hendricks had the power shots. That said GSP out struck him by about 15 strikes. Round by round it was a very close fight. Saying it is the worst call in history is strong. I think a lot of people thought and hoped GSP would lose so seeing him win in such fashion is tough to swallow. While I thought he narrowly won, I didn’t think they would give it to him.

I think Hendricks will look back at this fight and realize he could have done more in the fifth round. Whether you think Hendricks or GSP won I think most would acknowledge GSP took round five and if Hendricks wanted to seal his fate he could have. He said it was his fight to lose in the promo and it was going into round five, but he didn’t take it. GSP if nothing else showed more heart than Hendricks.

jonnyx Says, in 11-17-2013 at 01:52:43 from    

I had GSP with 2 and hendricks with 2 going into the 5th….but you gotta beat the champ and hendricks left the 5th too close. You really do have to be very definitive in beating the champ. either KO or submit or dominate esp. rd 5.

Noel Says, in 11-17-2013 at 01:55:26 from    

Well, the champ doesn’t have to be ko’d or submitted to lose but he does have to be clearly beaten. If Hendricks hadn’t coasted in the fifth, he would have clearly won. Dumb, dumb to coast just because he thought he was ahead on the cards.

FailSonnen Says, in 11-17-2013 at 01:56:05 from    

wow. But cutting 50 pounds is crazy. Hendricks walks around at 220…
He lost his punching momentum pretty early.

Dan Blankenship Says, in 11-17-2013 at 01:59:06 from    

That’s why they say never leave it in the judges’ hands. Johnny Hendricks said if he could touch him one time it would be over. Obviously not.

robbery Says, in 11-17-2013 at 01:59:26 from    

Hendricks is the champ! Got robbed for his belt tonight! Did everything expected but win.Just executed better ,whatever GSP threw at him he had answer. Stopped most of the takedowns effectively and landed some bombs himself. GSP might have connected few jabs but Hendricks can eat those like breakfast with his chin and countered very well when he needs to.In the final round GSP was predictable ,resorted what he does best which is takedown but Hendricks was ready most of time, even when GSP was on top, it didn’t last very long. Hendricks is clearly the better fighter first four rounds, GSP maybe won round 5,thats about it.

Not a fan of in-bred Okies spitting their tabacco juice in a clear bottle for all of to see at the press conferences…but Hendricks won that fight. Your redneck uncrowned champion is Johny Friggin’ Hendricks.

Axe pitbull is right, I believe the challenger has to completely dominate to win a decision.

horus Says, in 11-17-2013 at 02:06:12 from    

man…. I thought gsp was a gonner… the only thing i can think of is that point wise he landed may have landed more strikes even though hendricks’ strikes were more significant and took hendricks down JUST enough times to win that judges score… either way a rematch is DUE SOON! johny’s got to be furious that gsp is taking a break on top of it all.. btw that was the fastest 5 round match i’ve ever seen, meaning i was so into it that each round went by like lightning!

Leon Says, in 11-17-2013 at 02:06:15 from    

Remember a fight isnt based only on points, desperation moves and technicality probably factor in

Leon Says, in 11-17-2013 at 02:11:33 from    

bottom line is if that fight continued for indefinite rounds, hendricks wouldnt have been able to keep up.

paddedummy Says, in 11-17-2013 at 02:12:50 from    

GSP’s face was all busted up and Hendricks didn’t have a mark but GSP did control the stand up point sparring match and went for more takedowns against a wrestler, he just wasn’t able to dominate the grappling this time. All Hendricks got was a little ground and pound after GSP slipped but he managed to make it another boring GSP style win by decision. Meh whatever, Hendricks is interim 170 pound champ it sounds like anyway

bigFishLittlepond Says, in 11-17-2013 at 02:12:52 from    

Hendricks wins rounds 1, 2, 4 all day. Nothing else matters. This could get ugly for the UFC because even Bones vs. Gus was closer than this. If you win 3 rounds you beat the champ, because by default the champ could at most win 2 rounds. This isn’t going to bode well for the UFC including those involved.

FedorFailsAgain Says, in 11-17-2013 at 02:34:13 from    

I SAY this as one of the BIGGEST fans of the champion GSP…He did NOT win that fight tonight, not even close. I love him as a fighter, I love him as an embassador of this great sport and he’s a class act, but Johnny Clearly defeated the champion tonight. And I absolutely HATE robberies like this, it HURTS the sport. Even if the robbery goes to someone I respect like GSP…Get well George, get your personal life sorted out and come back. Let Johnny fight for the BELT soon.

davie Says, in 11-17-2013 at 02:34:22 from    

if Hendricks had better cardio..Wudve totally destroyed GSP if he kept his form for first 2 rounds…kina slowed down a little round 3 and on but still managed to keep GSP at bay.

Schtuppin’ Hawking the F*ing Genius Says, in 11-17-2013 at 02:34:29 from    

Hey guys, can you all stop with the “gotta beat the champ” crapola. Every round is scored as it’s completed. There’s no going back and revising scores for rounds or deciding at the end the challenger just didn’t have his mojo or whatever and you’re going to change your totals.

Judges score the round, scoring is closed for that round, score the next round, the scoring is closed for that round….etc….somebody (not the judges) adds up the totals and that’s the winner.

Not a Hendricks fan, but he won. GSP however, is the winner. End of story.

Gymrat169 Says, in 11-17-2013 at 02:35:57 from    

GSP 1,3,&5!!! Hendrex played to conservative! Hendrix did tap in the first round!!! To be the Champ you have BEAT the Champ! Hendrix played way to conservative to beat the Champ!!! Maybe next time he will take the chance of getting a little tired instead of waving to the crowd to be the winner!!! Why do people want GSP to lose?!?!

Leon Says, in 11-17-2013 at 02:39:33 from    

@ comment from –

it looks like the fights ARE judged based on your total preformance

Leon Says, in 11-17-2013 at 02:43:45 from    

In my eyes, hendricks slacked off after those bursts from 1&2.

No doubt he looked a lot stronger, but he should wonder why he couldnt finish or dominate.

CycloneX Says, in 11-17-2013 at 02:48:46 from    

GSP got the tools and used them effectively and JH lost…not even close to beating GSP…GSP all 5 rounds.

tesla Coil Says, in 11-17-2013 at 02:51:26 from    

Wow, I’m surprised at all the blind GSP support here. GSP is/was a great champ, but even he knew he lost that fight. His corner told him he was down 2-1 after 3. 4 is CLEARLY Hendricks, and 5 is CLEARLY GSP. 48-47, simple.

One guy looks perfect and the other guy literally looks like he got gang-r**** in prison and you think that the guy with the F’ed up face is the winner? In what universe for COMBAT sports do you think any other actual fighter would think that GSP actually won that FIGHT? At the end if the day, any unbiased person would say that one guy beat the crap out of the other guy. Simple as that.

I even gave GSP rd 3 (could have gone either way) and that was being pretty generous considering he literally did ZERO damage. Touching a guy’s face and doing nothing doesn’t constitute effective striking to me. Let’s face it, GSP has a GREAT jab, probably the best in MMA (see Koscheck fight) so we know when it actually lands clean it will do some damage. Tonight, his jab was worthless. He might have touched hendrick’s face a few times, but clearly it wasn’t nearly as effective as the stats suggest. I simply cannot give credit for ineffectual striking.

BTW, for all you wannabe keyboard warriors, a tap is done with the bottom of your hand, patting several times clearly. Jockeying for position or for blocks with the SIDE of your hand is not a tapping motion. Seriously? Are you people that stupid? GSP himself would have released the grip and tried to stand if he thought that was a tap. As someone with bushido spirit, one can only hope that GSP does the right thing and either gives up the belt or rematches immediately. Just like in the Paulo Filho vs Sonnen fight, GSP should have handed the belt over before dying of shame regardless of outcome.

As a warrior, winning like that where you KNOW you got your ass handed to you is simply embarrassing. If he has any self pride, he will never reference that fight as a win because it simply isn’t true. For the next 2 weeks, GSP will wake up every morning, look into the mirror, see the damage healing on his face, and still feel guilty because he stole Hendrick’s belt.

MONTE Says, in 11-17-2013 at 02:53:29 from    

GSP went to the hospital immediately after the fight, Hendricks didn’t. Nuff said.

GSP got some stitches and barely made it back for the end of the post fight press conference. He looked like total s***. Do you think he can see through those eyes?

I look over at Johnny and wonder if he even fought tonight he’s looking so untouched, lol. Some of you say you have to beat the belt holder to take the belt, well look at GSP’s face and say that he didn’t get beat. I know looks aren’t everything, but the fight told the rest of the story.

Dana was pissed afterward at the judging results!!!

f_u Says, in 11-17-2013 at 03:05:43 from

^^^ and I f****** HATE GSP … it was close though and neither of them got a 10-8 round, so I could see either one winning. Watch the fight on mute without Rogan jizzing his pants every time Hendricks does anything and the fight is even closer.

T’Challa Says, in 11-17-2013 at 03:21:00 from    

Huge GSP fan here, but he lost that fight man. I think the pressure and damage he took these last fights has George looking to hang it up. Whatever he chooses, he’s the best welterweight of all time, and one of the greatest p4p champions.

jizlo Says, in 11-17-2013 at 03:37:48 from    

Visible damage is should NOT to be taken into effect. I had hendrix edging a split. Not shocked it went in GSPs favor. Rnds 1 and 3 were toss ups. That being said, purely academic, Hendrix tapped 22 seconds into the fight

dave the rave Says, in 11-17-2013 at 03:39:19 from    

I’m pretty sure that this fight hinged on round 2. Hendricks clearly won rounds 1 and 4, and GSP took 3 and 5 convincingly. Therefore, round 2 was one of them rounds that is open for debate as although Hendricks wobbled GSP early in the round the champ came back strong and landed a number of decent strikes. The old saying of finish the round strong still applies it seems. I was rooting for Hendricks to come out last round and push on but he seemed content to sit back and rely on the judges. Big mistake. Definitely not the worst decision of all time, however if the early barrage from Hendricks in round 2 justifies winning the round then you will rightfully feel aggrieved.

dragoman Says, in 11-17-2013 at 03:56:28 from    

rewatched it. scored 2 and 4 for hendricks, 3 and 5 for gsp. it all depends on round 1, personally I think gsp won rnd 1. Its a shame gsp’s face gets fut so easily, he will lose the damage arguement every time.

Also it looked like johny tapped 30 seconds into the fight

shambz Says, in 11-17-2013 at 04:07:18 from    

@ 3:40 do you see how insanely quick these guys are. George ducked that first punch like he was flash or something. I had to replay that over and over.

Ozinator Says, in 11-17-2013 at 04:16:45 from    


True, funny that fight robberies have been sold this way for at least 50 years; It’s a backwards adjustment to excuse robbery. Though Axe pithole has a super scary name and knows he is able to shoot people who tell him how stupid he is to his face, it doesn’t change that these rounds are supposedly scored in a 10 must and have nothing to do with “beating the champ convincingly”

Timzda Says, in 11-17-2013 at 04:18:51 from    

It is what it is. Either book the rematch or vacate the belt. The division is exciting right now, things need to keep moving.

Pitbull eater Says, in 11-17-2013 at 04:23:45 from    

Lol I guarantee you I would.

Joe Says, in 11-17-2013 at 04:28:45 from    

I thought GPS won. I mean it was close, but the decision didn’t surprise me. After all, GSP landed more shots, got more takedowns, and pushed the pace of the fight. Fights are not solely determined by who came the closest to finishing them, so I don’t understand why most people thought that Hendricks won, unless they misunderstand the scoring. Dana White is obviously biased because of what GSP said after the fight. That is what you call damage control.

Joe Says, in 11-17-2013 at 04:33:29 from    

PS: Where is this tap people are talking about? I watched the part with the first guillotine and never saw it. It looks like Hendricks was just attempting to defend it to me.

AOPrinciple Says, in 11-17-2013 at 04:50:26 from    

I’ve never seen such erratic round scoring from either fans or judges before. I thought that Hendricks pretty clearly took 1 & 4, and GSP took 3 & 5. #2 was the only variable for me, and though GSP landed more strikes, Hendricks did a LOT more damage in that round, and more damage overall. I’m really surprised to see people giving round 1 to GSP. Really? I say this as a huge GSP fan, who really wanted him to dominate this fight: Hendricks won. And to those who say that the champion needs to be clearly beaten, or ko’d or submitted: whatever; the criteria of the fight is straight round scoring. You’re allowed to have a personal scoring preference, but that’s not how the fight is officially scored. Your opinion is irrelevant. I can’t see how GSP won if you score rounds separately, unless you give him #2

Also, did anyone else see Hendricks tapping from the guillotine in #1? I was was shocked Rogan didn’t mention it.

zagor Says, in 11-17-2013 at 05:10:27 from    

I think it was a draw. George got first fight, and Johnny was probably better after he tapped in round #1.

ToOcH911 Says, in 11-17-2013 at 05:27:08 from    

i guess no one watched the post fight show on fox sports because if you did you would gsp clearly won. compustike sig. strikes had gsp rounds 1,3,5 hendricks only went 2of 4 in takedowns for the whole fight so where did he win. if your looking ar damage yes hendricks did more damage if you look at his face compared to gsp however theres nothing in scoring for damage wich kenny florian also stated in the post show. fact

Karson Says, in 11-17-2013 at 05:41:53 from    

Hendrix robbed.

screw this champion has a safety window bullshit.

if you win a fight you win a fight.

how bout we have NBA basketball where if the current champions only lose by 5 points they remain champions.? sound fair. BullSh*t!

I felt Hendrix won. can’t wait for the rematch

eagletonian Says, in 11-17-2013 at 07:48:18 from

mac Says, in 11-17-2013 at 08:18:50 from    

Watched the fight again with no volume and gave rounds 1,3 and 5 to GSP. At 4:39 of the first round Hendricks taps lightly while in the choke. Live I thought Hendricks won the fight 4 rounds to 1.

mmafan Says, in 11-17-2013 at 08:18:54 from    

Want to know who won? Look at the damage on their faces.

ToOcH911 Says, in 11-17-2013 at 08:19:24 from    

regardless what you think when you watch a fight your not scoring it with that being said go back and score the fight and you will see gsp won, fact not opinion and heres how.
fightmetric significant stikes landed
shown on foxsports post fight show

round 1 gsp 19 hendricks 18
round 2 hendricks 30 gsp 28
round 3 gsp 31 hendricks 15
round 4 hendricks 18 gsp 14
round 5 gsp 9 hendricks 4

as you can see besides the first round gsp won by double the amount in the rounds he won where as hendricks just barely won and as far as takedowns go hendricks only went 2/4 in the whole fight and gsp had 3 they both got 1 in the 1st round but gsp had a sub atempt(that hendricks tapped from but thats another conversation) so even though the round was extremely close gsp still won and you cant argue that. these are facts they are all recorded stats not my opinion. the only thing that can be argued is damage, clearly gsp sustained more damage but kenny florian clearly stated on the post show that it states no where in the rule book damage has any effect on scoring. do you agree with it maybee not but thats the way it is. and oh yeah if someone tries to argue the 5th round as if those stats aint enough gsp got his 2 other takedowns in that round and another sub attempt the bell rang while he had hendricks in a kimura

charnc1122 Says, in 11-17-2013 at 08:23:55 from    

I’m a big GSP fan..but I don’t know about this one. George was more technical and active, but Hendricks had more power by far. I think there is some merit to saying you have to definitively beat the champ to take the belt, and with that said, I think Hendricks get the nod in other fights. I actually had Hendricks losing to both Koscheck and to Condit when they fought, so you win some, you lose some in close calls.

IloveMMA Says, in 11-17-2013 at 09:01:39 from    

In my mind, the judges took the right call by giving GSP as the winner. Having many bruises in the face doesn’t mean that you lose the fight. GSP is technical and Hendricks is a striker so it’s normal to have bruises in the face…especially GSP who had that kind of face in at least the last 5 bout.

Question to you all…. did someone noticed that yesterday during the fight?: http://www.mmatko.com/did-johny-hendricks-false-tap-to-make-gsp-let-go-in-round-1/

How come neither Dana or Hendricks talked about that when talking about winning the first round?

dude Says, in 11-17-2013 at 09:30:40 from    

Did anyone else think that Yamasaki was very slow in trying to get Hendricks’ mouthpiece washed out in the first round?

TsaGoii Says, in 11-17-2013 at 11:06:21 from    

Hmm. Because of his Kyokushin Kai background, I have followed GSP progression in MMA, and I loved it.

Now, I was surprised by the judges split decision. I really thought GSP lost that fight.

Now, is it because Hendricks looked much stronger, or because he had no bruises to show for?

I don’t know, since I did not keep track of the striking scores, way too busy waiting for George to start the engine.

To my opinion this was not his best performance.

Desapointed, but hey, this is it.
George, may retire.

jorrin Says, in 11-17-2013 at 11:14:29 from    

About last night… since when does who has more damage on their face determine who wins a fight? I see grown adults who know nothing about mma commenting on the gsp fight like they just saw a fight in a lunch room… i understand you people probably only look at the power punches and are just waiting for someone to go to sleep but mma is alot more than that…the gsp hendricks fight is similar to the manny paquiao timothy bradley fight… joe rogan was force feeding hendricks victory before the fight was even over, meanwhile the margin of victory was major thin. It really couldve gone either way, and if you ask me how i scored it i scored it a 3-1-1, the first round was a draw they both got takedowns and didnt do anything with them, second round yes hendricks rocked him but other than that he was completely outpointed with strikes, the third round hendricks slowed down and was got outstriked it said something like 50 stikes to hendricks 30 landed significant strikes, fourth round hendricks turned it up and took the round but the last round was gsp just going for the takedown and finally getting it. neither of them did crap with their takedowns and gsp had 3 takedowns to hendricks 2 throughout the whole fight, there werent any knockdowns so hendricks power punches score just as much as gsp strikes which were landing more, so i have rd1-draw rd2-gsp rd3-gsp rd4-hendricks rd5-gsp
Rewatch the fight with the volume on mute and see how much of a difference you feel about it.

danada Says, in 11-17-2013 at 11:21:27 from    

It’s funny because one fighter gets visibly bunged up more and the other looks more visibly tired. GSP looked the worse for wear, but I guarantee if that fight was 10 rounds, it ends with George on top. That’s why you can’t look at bruises and cuts really, because it’s not the best marker. A short elbow that cuts your face is annoying, but it’s not doing concussive damage. You have to get it stitched up, because we’re not barbarians. At the end of the day, if you ignore who looked more banged up, and who looked more tired and then simply observe the strikes landed, takedowns, octagon control it’s a very close fight. I would say GSP had octagon control. He was backing Hendricks up, and he was more aggressive a lot of the time. He probably landed more total strikes regardless of the damage. I think the takedowns were pretty even. I think everyone wants to see GSP lose, which is why they won’t admit how close the fight was.

Jches Says, in 11-17-2013 at 11:46:25 from    

GSP won rounds 2, 3, and 5. Hendricks clearly won rounds 1 and 4. I was pulling for Hendricks, but he unfortunately just was not agressive enough in the final round to take care of business. By the way, that fightmetric doesn’t take ground control, takedowns or octagon control into account. Using the fightmetric graph about significant strike totals as your sole basis for scoring the fight is ridiculous. How anyone could possibly give GSP round 1 is beyond me.

OscarMayhem Says, in 11-17-2013 at 11:55:13 from    

GSP fans can’t be taken seriously anymore. How in the world can you rationalize a fight metric that has your fighter ahead on significant strikes when your fighter does the chicken dance twice and is almost finished twice, gets his face tenderized, gets booed by his home crowd after the outrageous nod, and leaves his opponent with barely a mark to show? Delusional, and sad… Cheerleaders not fight fans.

mofungo Says, in 11-17-2013 at 11:57:50 from    

You gotta admit.. the “you have to finish the champ if you want the belt” stuff is pretty hilarious when it’s being used to defend “Mr Decision” himself St. Pierre

lol at that “tapping in the first round” talk. In case you didn’t know, you can right-click the GIF and slow down the speed. Then you will realize that these “taps” occurred AFTER gsp let go of the hold. Then you too will lol @ people still trying to make something out of these “taps”.

Ground St-Pound Says, in 11-17-2013 at 12:43:43 from    

From my user name, you know who I supported in this fight. But GSP lost. I had it 4 rounds to 1 GSP. He got beat round by round, and GSP is the round by round prodogy. Hendricks shut him down like he usually shuts ppl down.

Still love GSP, but he lost and it is not classy to be given a gift/robbery decision and not give your opponent and everyone else an opportunity to see the rematch ASAP. He can’t retire now without seriously tarnishing his name. He owes Hendricks a rematch. Who wants to retire like this??

Last piece, he knows Hendricks bullrushes like that. Why he didn’t practice stepping back on angles more and returning fire more comfortably, I don’t know.

Hendricks f***** that one up all by himself. He didn’t capitalize in round two and coasted through the fight, f****** smiling like a moron when he got punched in the face. He won round one, he could have won round two, but didnt, he lost round three clearly, won round four, and lost round five. This wasn’t a good fight.

nuno Says, in 11-17-2013 at 13:04:28 from    

Gsp is the king of the points, so he only conects enough to point, thats why he doesn’t ko anybody.
In the first round 1 minute to end the total punches scores come and hendrix is ahead by 10 strikes and the diference maintains until the end of the round. So 1º round hendrix because of more and hard shots to GSP head. Clear enough? round 2 and 4 clearly Hendrix. Why, because he bust up GSP very good.
So why in the hell we are still discussing who won the fight if this was a 5 round fight not 6 or 7, but 5.
GSP lost round 5 too, he just don´t admite that because he lost memory cortesy of welterweght new champion hands.
GSP is the king of sefety and I believe that fighting Hendrix again is not very safe for mister well being and I want to have a long career. Anyone contradicts this arguments? Any of you?

nuno Says, in 11-17-2013 at 13:09:16 from    

to Jches Says: GSP lost round 2, saw the chicken dance? what did GSP to hendrix in round 2 besides acomodate hendrix hands in is own face?

Desert Real Says, in 11-17-2013 at 13:18:35 from    

Certainly looked like a quick tap from the guillotine in the 1st. The thing is, it’s still only a 1-point difference per round. There were no 10-8 rounds. Round 1 for GSP, 3 and 4 for JH, 2 and 5 could go either way. KO or Submit the champ. Gustafsson experienced the same. Good for Dana, as it makes for a profitable re-match.

Desert Real Says, in 11-17-2013 at 13:32:36 from    

“Mr Decision,” hmmm, well let’s see. GSP did what no one else was able to do in knocking out Matt Hughes to win the belt originally. Serra knocked GSP out to take the belt, reinforcing the above mentioned rule. Then GSP submitted Hughes for the interim belt, and then in the re-match with Serra, forced him to quit, claiming the undisputed title. GSP later forced BJ to quit, and then went on to completely destroy Koscheck–although, yes, it was a decision, what has Kos been like since? Looks like people need to review the facts, but haters are going to hate.

danada Says, in 11-17-2013 at 13:36:04 from    

@ oscarmayhem GSP was born in Las Vegas? I thought it was Montreal. “Hometown” hahaha

iTrustme Says, in 11-17-2013 at 13:41:13 from    

Holy s***, you guys are right GSP won the fight. Watch the fight in mute/without commentary. GSP won 3 rounds to 2. His face was damaged more but that doesn’t mean s***. This is reminiscent of the GSP vs Penn fight. BJPenn f***** GSP’s face up in the 1st round. GSP looked worse, but GSP won the fight. GSP earned it, don’t hate haters.

ddt Says, in 11-17-2013 at 14:05:59 from    

wow hendricks got robbed whoever thinks gsp won u must be delusional u dont gotta finish the champ to be the champ u have to beat the champ and hendricks clearly beat the champ he beat him standing up clearly more significant strikes and better wrestling i give gsp 1 ROUND at most

Tempted Says, in 11-17-2013 at 14:32:52 from    

Fight was close, strikes were even, but Hendricks landed harder, more damaging shots throughout. GSP was never able to keep him down and never hurt him, Hendricks was able to do both. The decision almost doesn’t matter, its just more proof that GSP can’t win a fight, he can only win a decision. After he tapped to strikes against Serra he hasn’t been the same fighter. He’s been scared of the fight and wants to spar.

ben Says, in 11-17-2013 at 14:33:06 from    

Agreed wit Tesla Coil! GSP jabs were sissy jabs not doing anything to cause damage.Was meant to just keep distance and to disguise takedowns..That can’t be considered as effective strikes points.

Pooly Says, in 11-17-2013 at 14:57:37 from    

GSO LOST, Hendricks didn’t have a scratch….you GSP dicksuckers are PATHETIC……PATHETIC….you know your boy got his ass kicked but you’re acting like he won rounds, it was 4-1 Hendricks…..and @axe pitbull…i guarantee you i’d say it to your face big boy, i swear to god i would, tough guy nuthugger

kr8havok Says, in 11-17-2013 at 15:36:51 from    

I had rounds 2 and 4 for Hendricks, GSP had 3 and 4, that would leave rd 1 a toss up. It could go either way, but in close fight, i guess the judges favor the champ. With regards to some saying how f***** up GSP looked vs. Hendricks, get a clue, that dont mean s***.

Miike Says, in 11-17-2013 at 15:49:14 from    

My scoring after watching the fight again was:
(1st)tie 10/10
(2nd)JH 10/09
(3rd)GSP 09/10
(4th)tie 10/10
(5th)GSP 09/10

49/48 GSP

I am not a St Pierre fan, I wrestled and I like Hendricks, I was also surprised at the decision but now after watching the fight again I can see why it turned out that way.

fighter Says, in 11-17-2013 at 16:06:23 from    

I had 1 GSP 2 Hendricks 3 GSP 4 Hendricks 5 GSP

GSP finished the fight strong!

bigFishLittlepond Says, in 11-17-2013 at 16:11:09 from    

Winning on damage still counts in MMA but they changed the name in 2012. It is now called “effective striking” rather than “damage due to striking.” You want to know why? Because the powers that be thought the word “damage” being used over and over again would eventually make the promoters liable and the fighters open to compensation in the future (just type in “mma judging effective damage” and you’ll see an article explaining it at mixedmartialarts) It’s all semantics. According to the ABC unified rules for judging in MMA judges are supposed to score any damage they see under the banner of “effective striking” which in MMA, is the first banner they are to look for. So, not only does damage count in MMA judging, it is the number one thing as it pertains to “effective striking” separate from a KO.

bigFishLittlepond Says, in 11-17-2013 at 16:18:40 from    

kps1 – GSP won round 2? That was by far Hendricks best round. He almost finished GSP, shut his eye and made him do the chicken dance. So I guess you want to reward GSP with that round because he survived?

mma made easy Says, in 11-17-2013 at 16:27:38 from    

^Clearly hasn’t felt a GSP jab…

I scored it 2/2 and the fifth I gave to GSP by about 2 seconds of octagon control. Very close fight, could have easily been a draw.

But either way, a draw goes to the champ. Good call.

Pooly Says, in 11-17-2013 at 16:59:00 from    

NO it wasn’t a good call…i love all you GSP fanboys rationalizing your self doubt into saying it was close….it WAS NOT close…you fanboys are pathetic i swear to god…HE LOST….badly

greengiant Says, in 11-17-2013 at 17:34:52 from    

I’ll tell you what. Ignore loud mouth rogan. Round one was edged out by GSP. It was close but GSP did a little more. Round 2 hendrix of course. Round 3 GSP again. Round 4 Hendrix. Round 5 GPS of course. It amazes me some of you really think this was a robbery. If gsp does not totally dominate its almost like people give the challenger more credit then he deserves. GSp edged him out.

dub Says, in 11-17-2013 at 18:48:51 from    

its clear to see that people just wanted to GSP to lose from the get-go. And they can’t mustard the fact that in a close fight the champ won.. I’ve watched the fight 3 times now. the 2nd time i watched it without the commentating. It is clear to me that GSP won 3-2.. Probably could have been a draw which means GSP would still be the champ. But there is no way you can look at this fight and have Hendrix beating the champion. He just did not do enough. As he stated in the press conference, he was only throwing his punches 75%. Next time, go 100% and you might just have the belt. Sorry GSP haters, but reality sucks.. GSP is still the champ. If anyone, I think Robbie will be the next champ..

JChes Says, in 11-17-2013 at 19:02:09 from    

@nuno I went back and re-watched the 2nd round and what I saw was a very solid 20-30 sec. flurry by Hendrix. What GSP did for the entire last 3 minutes of the fight, though, was control the center of the octagon, be the aggressor, outwork Hendrix and connect with more shots than Hendrix by a very large margin. Controlling the fight for more than half the round and connecting on far more shots does go into the scoring. That’s how I saw it anyways, and I think that’s probably what a couple of those judges saw, too. It was a very close fight, but I can’t say that I was shocked by the scoring in the end.

hypersteve Says, in 11-17-2013 at 20:25:58 from    

I hate the argument that a persons damaged face should decide a fight. When I fight I am a lot older than most of my opponents. I have been in more wars. After a fight my face does not look too good. Also, my whole body hurts and I can barely move. My young opponents are training the next day. Guess who won the fight the night before? If you guessed me you are right (although not all of the time ;). Glad the judges dont decide the fight on my face and how I feel the next day!

OscarMayhem Says, in 11-17-2013 at 20:47:08 from    

@ danada, you are right. Instead of home crowd, I should have said a crowd favorite. My bad. Everything else is accurate, as I see you take no issue with it. Go Toronto Mayor!

bigFishLittlepond Says, in 11-17-2013 at 20:52:15 from    

JChes – all three judges gave the second round to Hendricks. In fact all judges agreed on rounds 2-5. They gave Hendricks 2 and 4 and GSP 3 and 5. Regarding round 1 GSP got two judges on that round and Hendricks got one so he won the SD.

Quit trying to rationalize that GSP won the second just makes you look desperate. The first round is the one under debate and GSP lost that round after a good opening minute. And there was no tap… those saying that are full retard.

tally2312 Says, in 11-17-2013 at 21:05:24 from    

Never been a GSP fan, however, thought he should tremendous heart. He looked terrified of Hendricks early in the fight. Once he got popped a few times, he woke up like a warrior and made it a dog fight and stayed in the pocket.

With that said, there is no way, no way!!! he won that fight. Throw your compu-stats out blah blah. Hendricks was the bully in the fight and inflicted damage while GSP was not able to dish it back. Sure there have been some bad calls recently, but this one was monumentally wrong. Worst decision ever in a championship bout…..

dirty Says, in 11-17-2013 at 22:23:14 from    

No one is saying it, but there was this fiasco about drug testing before this fight. Imho, GSP looked smaller and weaker than I have seen him look in some time. I have seen him handle many, and he could barely handle Hendricks. Is it possible he was on performance enhancers in the past and wasn’t this time? Maybe he wanted to prove to himself that he could beat Hendricks w/out them? He barely could, if he, in fact, did. He looked weak. His thighs were smaller and he could not really dominate. Hendricks accused him of doping over and over and got into his head. George knows, perhaps, that w/out those drugs he is not the same strong dominating champ. Just theorizing, but seems odd that it’s not being discussed?

Freaklegion Says, in 11-17-2013 at 23:39:18 from    

1, 3, and 5 for GSP.

And this is after I posted on Facebook “HENDRICKS GOT ROBBED”.

I went back and watched the fight with no audio and changed my mind.

The 2 rounds Hendricks won, were won by a larger margin than GSPs 3 rounds, but it’s still 3 to 2.

KingDavis45 Says, in 11-18-2013 at 00:38:17 from    

The judges were boxing judges and didn’t have very good mma experience. I think GSP knew this and made every baby jab and lead leg kick count. He didn’t do any damage with either. It was sad to see Johnny lose in such a lame way. He’ll be back though. If GSP retires then Johnny will just beat up someone else for the title

Rugburn Says, in 11-18-2013 at 01:06:07 from    

GSP a great embassador for the sport, BS!!
He was already crying and making excuses because he knows he got his ass handed to him. Trying to buy time with his BS instead of offering a rematch immediately. Sad to say but he sounded like Anderson after he got KTFO!! Now don’t misjudge me I love both Anderson & GSP as fighters but their excuses after their loses(yes GSP loss) was pathetic and made me loss respect for them. I even forgot about Bones!! All I know is that all three of the current champs got owned by the challengers. Fortunately for one challenger he left no doubt otherwise he would be the third to have been robbed. Pay back is B_#ch!!

z03fke Says, in 11-18-2013 at 01:51:03 from    

Well as a GSP fan i gotta say that Hendricks got robbed.

z03fke Says, in 11-18-2013 at 01:52:47 from    

Well we want a rematch!

anakonda Says, in 11-18-2013 at 03:59:35 from    

Hendricks got over confident. He thought because his face looks clean that smiling at the beginning of each round would seal the win. GSP looked terrible but actually landed a lot of strikes, including head kicks. If Hendricks acts/feels like it didn’t hurt, it does not mean that GSP didn’t score.
Hendrics will take the title though, I don’t think GSP (or anyone else) has the answer, he does not hit/kick hard enough to stop Hendricks from pushing the pace and landing bombs.

Leon Says, in 11-18-2013 at 04:00:52 from    

In the wild, the beast with more power wins; but with humans, it clearly isn’t the winning factor.

This is why Dana tells the fighters NOT to leave it in the hands of the judges if they really want to win.

vsmoove Says, in 11-18-2013 at 10:12:59 from    

I had GSP winning 1, 3 and 5. I don’t understand how anyone is saying this was a horrible decision. JH clearly won 2 and 4. GSP clearly won 3 and 1 and 5 were close… close rounds go to the champ in my opinion… nothing controversial at all… GSP pushed the pace and landed more shots, albeit weaker shots.

Oshawabinalex Says, in 11-18-2013 at 12:50:38 from    

Watched again judging each round.. It’s clear to me GSP won 1 3 & 5.

Cuervo Says, in 11-18-2013 at 13:27:15 from    

Each fighter clearly won 2 out of 5 rounds. Everyone agrees with that, including the judges.

Round 1 was very very close. Everyone agrees on that.

That was not a robbery.

yo Says, in 11-18-2013 at 15:46:25 from    

you guys are crazy gsp won that fight check stats gsp outstruck Hendricks in every round!!!! every round sounds like a win to me.

bigFishLittlepond Says, in 11-18-2013 at 16:28:08 from    

Cuervo – GSP didn’t win the 1st round. You are correct round one is the only round up for grabs because Johny won 2 and 4 and GSP 3 and 5. But to outright say GSP won it is not honest. That’s why people are pissed. It was a solid round for Johny and GSP only got a good takedown in the first minute but did nothing with it. After that it was all Johny. He won the first round and the 2nd and 4th. IMO the only round that was close enough to go either way is round 5 but GSP outworked Johny so I gave it to him but people who are saying GSP won the first are either GSP nuthuggers or have another bias. Clear and easy round for Johny. In fact, the last few minutes of the first is why Johny came out swinging hard in the second. He knew GSP had nothing for him.

Doorag IOMC Says, in 11-18-2013 at 21:56:01 from

@ leon… if it was indefinite rounds? 125lb champ would could move up to heavyweight and take a title.. that statement is completely ignorant.

mmafan11 Says, in 11-18-2013 at 22:52:17 from    

It was a close Fight either way…

But Fight Metric scored Significant Strikes 7 Take Downs to GSP.

Plus GSP won Round 5.

Hendricks GASSED after Round 2 even Rogan called it go watch the fight.

Hendricks ADMITTED at the UFC press conference to using only 70% power because he wanted to go 5 Rounds that is he was AFRAID to GAS OUT!!!

GSP won Round 5 and therefore the BELT!

Go watch the fight again. Not to mention the TAP TAP in round one by Hendricks!

zagor Says, in 11-19-2013 at 02:03:13 from    

Some people bruise easy, some don’t…and some people hit harder than the others….but that is not what judges are looking at….JH fans need to realize that……

nuno Says, in 11-19-2013 at 06:12:56 from    

mmafan 11: you are bringing Rogan statment that Hendrix was gassed out, he never said that. He said that JH were slowing down in round 3. Go see the fight please. And then you have round 4 were Hendrix motorboated GSP. If you take so high consideration on Rogan opinion sure you agree with his take on who won the fight. Hendrix of course. 1º-2º-4º rounds!!! I even gave the 5º to JH were GSP was fighting in autopilot like JDS in the cain fight.

mmafan11 Says, in 11-19-2013 at 12:06:49 from    

1. Just because GSP bruises easily does not mean he was dominated like JDS was by Cain,

2. GSP won 1, 3 & 5, in particular 5 the ‘Championship’ Round easily,

3. JH was GASSED after RD 2 easy to see in the fight he slowed right down and had No Power left in that big left, GSP specifically trained for that his Thai Muay Thai coaches & strategist called that go see the lead Videos to the fight,

4. It was a close fight, but you must take the belt decisively from the Champ or you lose the decision,

5. Fight Metric called significant strikes for GSP over JH, GSP outscored JH,

6. Rogan said during the fight clearly that JH was slowing down had nothing on his punched after RD 2, Slowing Down = Gassing,

7. GSP was not on autopilot in RD 5 he was not hurt in that Round and GSp clearly won RD. 5.

Slowing Down = Gassed :)

This just in. Rewatched the fight. I was wrong. Again. Surprise.

GSP 1, 3, 5
Hendricks 2, 4

You can all stop arguing now that I’ve settled this dispute. Go back to your homes now. There’s nothing to see here.

~legally 3/5 rounds~

was JUDGED based on the fact of whether or not the fighter could continue in an INDEFINITE fight.

Dana disgusts me….bagging on GSP who puts his health & life on the line while Dana sits back getting fat, soft & stupid……so GSP wants a break after getting a concussion & a hospital trip. He deserves it….suck it Dana

OscarMayhem Says, in 11-20-2013 at 15:46:21 from    

OK here’s an update. On the one hand, we have Chewy, yo and axe pittbull, Dan Blankenship, Schtuppin’ Hawking the F*ing Genius, and of course mmafan11 (vocal celebrity) who believe GSP won convincingly (even the round where he forgot where he was). From our research, most are not completely blind, just subjectively blind.

On the other hand you have:
Dana White, Joe Rogan, Pedro Rizzo, Pat Miletich, Carlos Condit, Dan Henderson, George Sotiropoulos, Diego Sanchez, Uriah Faber, Fight Metric, John Dodson, Tim Kenedy, Michael Chiesa, Sarah Kaufman, Sara McMann, Cub Swanson, Tony Ferguson, Aaron Simpson, Jamie Varner, Clint Hester, CB Dollaway, Mackens Semerzier, Colton Smith, Vinny Magalhaes, Scott Jorgensen, Ramsey Nijem, Dustin Pague, Derek Brunson, Todd Duffee, Conor Heun, Ryan Bader, Lorenz Larken, James Krause, Danillo Villefort, Brad Tavares, Dennis Bermudez, Darren Elkins, Aaron Riley, Ben Askren etc.,
who believe otherwise. I don’t know. Seems like a toss up right!? LOL.

steamer Says, in 11-22-2013 at 21:21:36 from    

I see a lot of poorly spelled requests for GSP’s retirement. He’s definitely amongst the top 5 fighters of all time. He’s still winning. If he loses 2 or 3 in a row then let’s talk about hanging them up. But at this point it’s up to him. If he feels like fighting, I’d be honored to watch. Idiots.
