GSP vs Hendriks decision the biggest overblown hype train in history

I'm going to state facts here. Everyone ranting about the decision is basing their views on "emotion". By feel. I'm sure most people had the commentary running while watching the fight also. I also bet that you are judging the fight as a whole and not by its parts. Therein lies the problem.

I don't care what the talking heads said about the decision after the fight. Those "experts" just watched the fight. Again, they are more than likely viewing the fight as a whole and not as parts. Just because GSP got really banged in a round, it doesn't give brownie points into the following round. The next round is a new fight.

I would challenge anyone here to rewatch Round 1 and tell me who did the most significant actions. If you open your eyes, you will realize that in fact GSP owned the 2 most significant actions in that round.

Emotion is fine, but have some common sense. We can't judge fights based on feel. The problem is everyone did. If you're getting airtime or views about how bad the decision was, at least add credibility by watching the fight a second time or let us know that you watched without commentary and had pen and paper in hand. Also, you should list your experience in judging and the rules of MMA. Most people will likely realize they have no business criticizing this decision. Most people however can't be honest with themselves.
