I was originally looking at an article from mmanews.com but it dissapeared. But what the articles imply the judge scoring of the main event just confuses the hell out of me. But the above website indicates he won 2 of the rounds.
Franklin unanimously won the first round, all judges agreed.
Rounds 2 and 3 Silva got 2 of 3 judge votes.
So its Round 1 = Franklin 3 votes
Round 2 = Silva 2 Franklin 1
Round 3 = Silva 2 Franklin 1
So becausae Franklin got 3 in the first, any split decision wuold give him 5 judges scores vs Sliva's 2, even tho Silva won more rounds unanimously?
How do they possibly negate Silva unanimously winning 2 of the 3 rounds with that? If he unanimously won 2 rounds why did he not win the fight? Originally this article was from mmanews.com, but I went back looking for it and can't find it because they made room for newer news. And I'm having trouble finding ALL of the judges decisions on another website, so it might have been a typo.
Can anyone confirm Silva DID NOT unanimously win 2 rounds?
And if he did does the scoring system seriously consider that a loss? Unanimously winning more rounds then your opponent? Obviously if Franklin wins the first solidly, and the second 2 are close but Silva gets it unanimous then thats 5 numbers added up versus 4, which is impossible for Silva to win.
I'm trying to use Google-Fu to find the official judges scoring but I haven't seen them since the day after the fights. I could have swore the article said Silva unanimously won two rounds.
