i agree, but when rogan and goldie are screaming like matt is out of it, that doesn't help ... and the judges are fools, so i am not surprised they gave the first round to serra ... i was nervous though, cuz again, the judges aren't real bright ... if you go back to the gsp/kos fight, i think 2 judges gave kos the first round after gsp took him down and then got taken down from the scramble at the end of the round ... so never leave it to the judges is what i say

I turned the sound off. Much better that way. Anybody else here ever do that?

Okay, I watched again, and I do think Matt was getting ready to try and take Serra down again when the buzzer rang ending the 1st round. I think it was close in the 1st, but I think Matt going down after the headbutt and back-of-the-head hit was probably what the judges "focused" on in giving Serra the 1st Rd.

Also, the judges probably didn't know he got hit with a head butt. They don't get the benefit of instant replay. When it happened live, I thought he got caught with a hook or something as well.

I knew Matt had got hit but didn't realize he got headbutted first. When he went down, I jumped up out of my seat and was screaming at him to get up and he did! I knew he'd hear me. But, like you, my heart was in my throat for a short while. But then Matt showed us once again why he is a champion with so many defenses to his belt when he kept going and latched onto Serra. He has so much heart! I thought when he got Serra's neck he was going to RNC him, but I don't think he had a good lock on it. It did almost look like Trigg 2 when Trigg gave Matt his back and Matt pounded on him first before RNC'n him. I was hoping he'd finish Serra off in the first but the clock ran out.

I cannot believe that Serra thinks he "squeaked out" the 3rd for the "W". And, my husband said that nimbnuts Joe Rogan said "the decision could have gone to Serra". Only if those judges were either all blind or just plain crooked!

I'm gonna watch it again when my sister gets here so she can see Matt win and I'll pay special attention to that 1st round again.
Bon*Bon I am with you on talking to Matt during the fight. I kept saying " do it Matt! Come on your ok just focus remember he talked about you its personal.." I looked like a nut! Plus everyone in the room was acting like Serra dominated the first round! I think not!!

I noticed that being there lived without the commentators was a lot better. I thought Matt (besides the momentary dizziness) dominated that fight. None of Serra's sub attempts looked dangerous.
