Close fight, but Aldo won that fight. Marlon only landed a few big strikes, Aldo consistently pressured him and had octagon control for 15 minutes of that fight.

Honestly it depends how you saw the third. Remember ring generalship is only scored if there's no clear immediate impact striking advantage displayed by one fighter. Marlon landed the heavier stuff in the 3rd.

The only people who score that for Moraes are the people who bet on him. Anyone with unbiased version saw it going Aldo's way.

Aldo won that fight I don't care what anyone says. Don't tell me about scoring criteria or any other ******** like that. Aldo won that fight!! Moraes knew it! The crowd knew it. The commentators knew it!  ******* Stevie Wonder knew it!
A fight can be close but 1 guy still clearly wins!  **** these judges!
