Default Re: Shogun/Hendo

I didn't think it would go 5. It was so violent that I wasn't scoring properly. Only in the 5the 5th which I think is a clear 10-8. Shogun held top mount position and ground and pounded for pretty much 5 mins. My gut says it was 2-2 going into the 5th or at worse 3-1 Hendo. Not outraged by the decision but a draw was fair or 1 point either way.

Both fighters were just incredible in terms of heart and the damage they were so eager to inflict. Unfortunately, stylistically, they know no other way. Neither of them know how to start jabbing and moving, breaking down the legs from a defensive position etc

I can't see Hendo changing but Shogun has to start using his jab and moving his feet.
