Though last night’s main card clashes at UFC on FOX 2 may not have been quite as thrilling as their preliminary peers there’s no question all three bouts were competitive, especially in the case of the co-headliner between middleweights Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping. Both men went at it for fifteen solid minutes with “The Count” holding his own against the accomplished grappler rather than suffer on his backside for the bout’s duration like many predicted he might.
In the end Sonnen walked away with a closely contested decision victory that left a number of fans, including UFC President Dana White, with a look of surprise when the scorecards were read. While the outcome was not as outrageous as other examples in the past, debate remains as to whether or not Bisping should have earned the judges’ nod and a title-shot in the process.
Now FOX has released a series of highlights from the fight, allowing fans to re-live the exciting affair and either have their opinions on the result either changed or strengthened based on a second look.
