  • I just want a good, action-packed fight like the last one

  • Test to see if I can change the poll?

  • Are these options 4 and 5?

They could have taken a point, and arguably should have, but they didn't. Dan even said he gave him a "strong warning". Bullshit, imo. Would've been dead even going into the 3rd, losing the point would meant Tony needed a ko or sub to win, otherwise the best he could hope for is a draw.

Yeah, it definitely SHOULD have been a dropped point. That part aside, how would the 2nd round have scored otherwise? Ferguson was clearly dominant but Cerrone did land a takedown, which automatically scores?

Yeah that’s true, his eye was pretty bad anyway though.

Fuck knows, that whole situation is such a grey area.
Dan played it pretty well. I think at that point he just has to listen to the doctors (who told him to stop it) then it's up to the commission what the actual result will be.

Nah, that was a pretty comfortable 10-9 for Ferguson, more than the first was for Cerrone.

Yeah, exactly, the scoring never seems consistent. Potentially, that fight may have ended with Cowboy 2-0 up (even though everyone can see Ferguson dominated round 2) and only having lost due to blowing his nose after taking a shot way after the bell.

It was that last shot that makes it really difficult. In hindsight, if Dan had taken a point, but then still awarded Tony the win via tko there could've been a fucking riot. NC probably would've been the best result there.

Cowboy would've won had they taken a point (19-18 Cerrone), but I don't think they would've gone to the scorecards like Boxing. Tony would've been DQ'd and have climbed a clocktower. BTW I see people saying the 1st was close, but Cerrone clearly won the 1st round and Tony clearly won the 2nd.

I'm pretty sure they can go to the scorecards if the stoppage is the result of an unintentional foul. Pretty obvious that late shot was intentional.
