It was close but I didn't think it was a split decision, I thought he took 3 rounds. That said, I also was disappointed that Benson threw that cheap shot after the bell signaled the end of round 2.
Anyway, great night of fights, all in all.
It was close, but I thought Melendez won the fight. And I agree that cheap shot by Bendo was pretty bad.
As for Frank, I wanted him to win and thought he could win. I was not impressed with Cormier tonight.
I picked Thomson to win and was pumped for what he did to Nate. I have been sold on Josh for awhile now and thought he beat Melendez last year.
