Pedro did get injured in the fight. And shortly after came the finish from Shogun.

@freemoney

No way Martin was down 2 Rounds before the finish. Probably 1-1 going into the 3rd and Martin was clearly winning the 3rd had he not got the finish. 

Look at all the stats they are in favor of Martin.

@superstar u could be right however as far as compubox stats are concerned I strongly suspect they are ********. Why u ask. Because firstly who counts them? what view do they have? I have tried to count and found my t.v. view is rarely good enough to see the punch land for shure everytime. Further more who the **** decides what a significant strike is? I watch and cant tell half the time if it landed or if it hurt. Why are there no total strike numbers to compare. Finally I've watched many a fight where it seems dead even and then the punch stats are lopsided in favor of one fighter. Wasn't there just a problem with the khabib conor punch stat numbers? I picked martin but I had him losing two rounds to none going into the third. Point of view I guess.
Personaly I've learnt dont ever trust anything the ufc says unless u see it yourself.
