most people score a round on what they see last. i always tell my guys to finish the round hard to push the judges dec our way. lets take the 2nd round and start it with fitch on top for that min and a half then bj stands up and then takes fitch down and lets let the round end with bj going for the rnc. now who won the fight?
That's what I did initially, but I went back and watched the 2nd round again. I think the reason the 1st judge may have given it to Fitch is because he took BJ down pretty quick and then holds him up against the fence before BJ reverses and takes Fitch down, has his back, attempts RNC, doesn't get it, Fitch reverses at about 1:10, gets some strikes in while on top before BJ manages to stand up but the bell rings before he can do anything. I think that 1st judge also scored it by the last thing he saw while the other two judges saw it as a draw.
Given your scenario above, I think BJ would have gotten round 2.
