Who Did You Have Winning Machida-Rampage?

I know the event just ended, but I've already noticed an interesting trend with the scoring. A lot of live play-by-play sites had it for Machida. It looked like most of this particular board had it for Rampage. I, personally, had it 2-1 Rampage, but wouldn't have been mad either way.

So here's the poll.

I'll also throw in whether you want a rematch. I enjoyed it and am looking forward to a rematch if they want to do it.

EDIT: ****! I hit the back button to see something and the goddamn thread posted before the poll was put in. I hate this site and everything it stands for.

EDIT 2: Fixed it because I'm an internet genius. Obviously.

Had it a draw. Rampage round 1, 10-10 round 2, and Machida round 3.

Rampage and No.

I had Rampage winning rounds 1 and 2 and Machida with the 3rd. Machida wasn't being elusive, he was flat out running in the first 2 rounds. He was gassed in the second.

3rd round was obvious. Decision I'm fine with because it was a close fight.

Rampage won rounds 1 & 2 based on aggression...but with judging it could have easily been a split. Machida won round 3.

Nothing really happened in round 1 or 2, not enough to give it to either.

The only decisive round was round 3, where Rampage got mauled on his feet and on the ground.

It's more a flaw in the 10 point must scoring system and no extra round than anything else. You saw another problem with the scoring system in the Falcao fight.

Yeah, if I could give 10-10 rounds, the first two would be 10-10's. They both should have lost the first 2 rounds. Pretty equal suckiness.
