Another reason why "significant strike" count is dog****. It doesn't tell the story of the fight. Detrimental fight for Yan which he actually won.

I wouldn't have bet O'Malley if it was a 5rounder. 

Yan did way better in the first than he ever has before btw.

Damn man Dana had this planned, it’s all rigged he wanted O’Malley to win so he can bank off the next PPV

LETS GO SUGA SHOW

Predictions: 1 of 1 Winners, 0 Perfect, 65 Points   |   Tied for 5143rd

Competitive fight, not a 'robbery' Sean landed the bigger more significant shots (but very close) meanwhile Yan had more more ground control and grappling success but ultimately damage wins and SUGA wins!

I have no ******* clue how no takedowns, hardly any control time and 10 give or take significant strikes can win over 6 takedowns and almost half the fight in control time.....how the hell did Yan not win? I'm truly baffled here.

Of course they factored in the cut. The first thing they score is damage. Thats why I said people posting Yan 30-27 are ******* high. 

Round 1 was very close and that was before any of the big damaging shots were landed.

ImRealUgly Unfortunately that's not going to happen. If anything, I hope they give Yan a favorable fight. He was supposed to win this one. O'Malley basically said it himself in his interview just now. These judges need to be held accountable for **** like this!

First round was close but still hard to give that one to O'Malley imo. Last round was close too and that one I edged O'Malley.
