#UFC167 Results: GSP edges out Hendricks in Controversial Split Decision [Link]

(c) USA Today Sports

This, my friends, may go down in history as one of the most controversial decisions in UFC history.  UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has defended his title against his challenger Johny Hendricks in a controversial split-decision…and I think I can smell a rematch in the future, unless GSP decides to retire after his UFC victory.  The whole five-rounds of the bout was so nerve-wracking that everyone was biting their nails up until the judges’ scorecards were revealed.  To many, including me, Hendricks won three out of the five rounds, but the judges’ thought otherwise.  St-Pierre won a split decision with scores of 48-47, 47-48, and 48-47.

  1. Yes, actually GSP did lose the fight, no doubt. This is enough, if judges cannot properly score a fight, why are they judges ? I think a scoring grid is necessary. Imagine how people who did have their money on Hendricks feel right now ! By the way, I am a big GSP fan, but the best was Hendricks, enough said.
