Barboza spent two and three getting marched down. In the second he was lying in guard and got busted up, landed nothing. Not hard to understand.

Although I had it for Barboza I have no complaints of it going the other way

But no way there way 30-27 in either direction

I had it 29-28 Felder but I think Calderwood winning was worse than Felder 29-28 and I even said I thought Lee won but no robbery.

I don't even take their significant strikes into consideration whoever composites those needs strung up by the testicles...that's the second fight where someone scored a 30-27 in a clear 29-28 fight. Not to mention it was a 30-27 once for each??? Judges need to be sat down with tapes of fights and evaluated on what they see, way to much incompetence for the "top promotion'. Call me biased if u want, but I had both Calderwood and Felder. I was almost sure both had lost crazy judging hope khabibi doesn't feel like cruising tonight he might be in for a screw job.

I prefer Feldel vs Gillepsi and Makachev vs Oliveira. Felder and Makachev are always gifted with favorable match up.
