I have been hearing rumors of this fight being fixed. I watched the fight, and what happened was, johnson kept getting belfort down, but the ref, after only a few seconds, would stand them back up. Johnson was working when this occurred. Everyone knows that Belfort is a stand up fighter, with only decent ground skills. Johnson was controlling belfort on the ground. till finally, after 3 or more fast standups, belfort finally caught johnson with some punches and finished him.
Another terrible call was the DQ of Erik Silver. Guys are using the no hitting behind the head rule blatently. Guys will turn their head, to avoid getting hit. I’m sorry, if you turn your head to avoid getting hit, and you get hit in the back of the head, tough shit. don’t turn your head then. there was no point deduction, just a dq. But the ufc is treating this as a win for silver, regardless of what the official result was. he will be getting paid his win bonus, as well he should.
