No Fallout from Phan/Johnson?

I thought Phan clearly won this fight.

Nah. I wouldn't have been upset no matter whose hand was raised. An extremely close fight that was a borderline draw? Yes. A robbery? No.

If Johnson hadn't landed so many shots on the feet during his bullrushes, I'd probably say Nam won because Johnson did nothing with his slams. But between the slams and the fact that he was actually landing punches while they were standing, I saw it basically even.

Phan's a better fighter, but he's too small. he'll do better @ 145.

johnson won the fight, but is gonna lose to brookins.

Phan clearly outlanded Johnson with cleaner more effective strikes. I was impressed with Phan's body work in particular. By comparison, Johnson looked sloppy. Sure, Johnson had some takedowns but he did little with them. Johnson shouldn't have won the fight because of a few takedowns.

I think it comes down to the 3rd round. I had Nam winning round 1 until the last minute or so when he let Johnson take too much control on the feet and with takedowns.

Round 2 was nams easily.

Round 3 was debateable. I think Johnson just mixed it up more. He had some takedowns, and wasn't dominated on the feet. I think Nam won the stand up battle by a small margin, but control and aggression were just barely enough to lean towards Johnson by the smallest of margins imo.
