and I was curious to what you all think about the scoring system.

There were three rounds to this fight. One fighter won the first round decisively. He busted the other fighter up pretty badly. The other two rounds were close but the fighter that lost the first round had the slight advantage in the last two rounds. Should the fighter that did the most damage or the fighter that won 2 of three rounds win the fight?

I intentionally didn't say who actually won the fight. If you want to know let me know.

Penn stood around the entire fight. He got the best of the stand-up in the first, but from there GSP really pressed the action, scored some takedowns, got a little GNP in, and that was the difference.

I thought the judges got it right. I have a friend who is a big BJ Penn fan, and he thought Penn was seriously gassed, and thought that GSP won.
