Dawado landed nothing heavy. Lol. All flash other than the first leg kick. Arce landed the better punches by far. Not a robbery but the wrong guy won, IMO. Not decisive either way.

lol I love it when I get downvoted for simply recanting the judging criteria. Don't blame me people--I didn't write the criteria. But I do know what they are.

Recountre has a good chin, but you always wonder how long it'll last. I was tempted to play Good on DK, but ended up fading him, so lets root for a Recountre boring decision! LOL (I went for Good on here because I'm assuming he can keep Recountre off of him in the 2nd/3rd)

No, Fish, it's not. Damage is nowhere in there. They specfically left it out. It's meant to be implied but is NOT in the unified rules. "Effective Striking and Grappling" each given equal weight.

Lol. Why do you still care about downvotes.   I honestly don’t see how you are so matter of fact on who landed the harder shots on that. Haha

Dawodu snapped his head back with straights, Arce's lands were loopier and not clean. Clean effective striking looks better to the judges. He was also bleeding (showed damage) was more tired, and did not control the cage. The primary criteria is basically damage, and everything that appears to bring the fight closer to conclusion.

I thought most of Dawodu's strikes were absorbed by the arms and shoulders of Arce, ala Ben Henderson/Edgar, while Arce landed cleaner. Thought it was close but Dawodu was slightly better and did dictate the clinch terms

@Mule I literally wrote an entire breakdown on the unified rules. You can argue with me if you like, but you're not going to win. Specifically, the primary criteria is thus (verbatim)

PRIORITIZED CRITERIA: Effective Striking/Grappling “Legal blows that have immediate or cumulative impact with the potential to contribute towards the end of the match with the IMMEDIATE weighing in more heavily than the cumulative impact. Successful execution of takedowns, submission attempts, reversals and the achievement of advantageous positions that produce immediate or cumulative impact with the potential to contribute to the end of the match, with the IMMEDIATE weighing more heavily than the cumulative impact.” It shall be noted that a successful takedown is not merely a changing of position, but the establishment of an attack from the use of the takedown. Top and bottom position fighters are assessed more on the impactful/effective result of their actions, more so than their position. This criterion will be the deciding factor in a high majority of decisions when scoring a round. The next two criteria must be treated as a backup and used ONLY when  Effective Striking/Grappling is 100% equal for the round.

Lol fish is the new self proclaimed **** taker of scoring fights yet has no idea what actually happening within the fight. He said dawado landed harder and wrote a bunch of **** on the web so it must be true

Lol. It was a close fight. No robbery but very split worthy. If you don’t understand that it’s you who is flat out wrong.

Yes, Fish, and "damage" is nowhere in there, is it? The word, I mean. Yes the idea is there but not the word. 

And Chance is clearly trying to knock out Good's fists with his face.
