It was for the simple fact nobody saw it coming, unlike with Gsp you know its coming. Gotta give credit to BJ for going in there and taking the wrestling to the wrestler.

Also, BJ didn't just lay in the guard & smother: he worked to improve position & threatened with submissions.

A 10-7 round is not possible unless BJ had been totally destroyed AND had a point deduction at some time during the round. Neither of which happened on Saturday night. BJ was dominated during round 3, yes, but it was a 10-9 domination, not a 10-8 domination.

As Matt told me yesterday while he was doing the blog, a fight would be stopped by the ref long before the judges would be able to score that round a 10-7.

If you want to see a 10-8 domination then just watch Matt's fight with Gil Castillo at UFC 40.

if any fight was a 10-7 it would be the first round of the maynard/edgar fight .. i scored that 10-7 ... but the judges scored that 10-8 ... i know they are two very different rounds .. based on that i could change my score from 10-8 to 10-9 for the 3rd, than i have the fight being a draw as i gave fitch the 2nd also ..
