This is how I scored it as well, though I would accept Romero winning four. That one was close.

 

I don’t think there were any 10-8s, although I could maybe accept that argument for round three. Not round five though.

Terrible take. Round three was closer than round five and Yoel clearly lost round four.

Maybe I was misremembering round three vs five. I got up at 3am to watch Japanese wrestling yesterday, so by 1am last night, things were a bit of a blur.

Rocked three times and almost finished twice in the fight. What a performance for Whitaker but Yoel sucks right? ^^

Never once got hurt and even exhausted ate Whitagoats flush head kick full blast then still kept coming like a tank.  

 

I give them both props but Yoel whipped that @ss this time. H8'ers can't even give Yoel any cred. He cleaned the whole division and gave the champ all he could handle.

... it was only fun to watch bcoz whitt was close to losnig, he was far from dominating,

many people claimed whitt would finish 41yr old romero in the 1st, didn't come close,

 .... but a w is a w in the big picture -

I guess the question for me is a clear description of what is a 10/8 round.  I am amazed RW made it out of two of those rounds.  If getting knocked down, almost losing the fight, and walking sideways to your corner isn't a 10/8, then what is?   So it's simple for me, if round 3 and 5 are not 10/8 Romero, then RW wins.

... or just score the overall fight

Babies cry when they don't get their way. When people don't get what they want, they tend to be more vocal.

 

Those who were rooting for Romero or who saw him winning the fight see this as an injustice, so they won't seem to shut up about it. For this reason, whatever poll you put together that seems to favor Romero is just not going to be accurate. The others, who saw what they believed to be a fair judgment, are satisfied. You won't hear much from them because as far as they are concerned, that fighter is in the record books.

 

It looked like a draw to me, but I can see where those who say Robert Whitaker won the fight have a case, as he controlled the action for the overwhelming majority of the fight. Romero got a couple really good shots that ALMOST knocked Whitaker out.

 

But what is "almost?" Should I go ahead and make a thread about all sorts of things that I "almost" did or nearly got around to doing? I mean, if "almost" counts for something, then I really am one hell of a mother****er and I should start seeing my entire life in a different light.

 

Romero "almost" knocked him out, but he didn't. I'm going to go ahead and give him some credit for "almost," because I feel that counts for a lot more than "not even close," but that's not enough to give him the fight. He got his **** whooped for 23 out of 25 minutes.

 

He sure looked great for about two minutes, though.

 

I'm definitely not upset that Whitaker won. Dude made weight and he's never been popped for steroids. We can't say that about Romero.

"Almost" finished the fight is better than not close to finishing a fight, correct? Romero knocked him down in the 3rd, had him on skates end of 4th, knocked him down again in the 5th and controlled Whittaker the entire rd.

I'm pretty sure the definition of a 10-8 round has more to do with completely dominating the entire round, and less to do with landing one good punch.

 

Yoel had his moments, but he didn't once dominate an entire round. Whittaker got his shots in every single round.

and for 4.5 of those rounds he couldn't throw with his right hand, yet Yolo STILL couldn't land a takedown and keep it. Nobody else mentions after the two elbows that rocked him he took a 4 minute break for a nut shot to the thigh

So, that little kid clearly won this rd, because he landed more strikes.

How is it different? I keep hearing Whittaker outstriked Romero in the rounds Romero rocked or dropped Whittaker. I'd love to hear your argument against that video.

Anytime that you spend over half of a round desperately trying to just survive the round then yes that warrants a 10-8;as we all saw in the 5th round. If that doesn't then I don't know what does.

 

 

Should have been a draw with ufc rules and a Yoel win with pride rules. Not that matters though. I was glad to see Rob get the W though so we don't have to sit around for a 3rd fight after Yoel missed weight 2 fights in a row

if yoel deserves a 10-8, so does robbie for rounds 1 and 2 from yoel impersonating a punching bag

 

You don't get 10-8 rounds for playing touch gloves. Hardly anything of substance was landing. Rob gets 10-9 for being more active

 

You seriously can't see a difference between R1 and R5

I'm watching mma hour and Whittaker is on. He's mumbling, stuttering, it's hard to watch. He can't remember the fight. He gets concussed all over again just from rewatching the fight. His brain is mashed potatoes.

Easy answer. When someone has to survive the entire round, and mounts zero offense for the entire round, THAT is a 10-8.

 

When Romero spends the other half of that round standing still or eating jabs, that's not a 10-8.

Your first example is a 10-7, your second is a 10-8. How can rd 1 and rd 5 be scored the same?
