    Wow, I know everybody loves Doug b/c he is the hometown guy, but honestly.... Everyone needs to go back and watch it again on Sherdog with a subjective eye. First off Mann controlled the ring the entire fight. Mann threw combos the whole time while Doug threw one punch or one kick. Mann fired back counters when Doug exchanged, doug didn't. Most of Dougs takedowns came from eating a flying knee. A takedown that leds to no damage and getting sweep isn't worth anything. A takedown to you defending from a submission and not doing any damage is usually not worth anything as well. I know we all wanted him to win, but I think if you rewatch it and keep these points in mind you'll see how the judges came up with the outcome. Great fight, just didn't go his way. To say he got cheat or screwed, well that is a very biased statement.

    It's not the worse decision I have seen and I can see both sides of the argument, but I don't think it is labeled as "just because he is the hometown guy". When Tompkins says he feels Doug won, Don Frye tells Doug he won and the announcer was like "I didn't see that at all", then it's a bit closer that just being biased, but what does the other guys coach or don frye know about fighting right?

    Hardly any of those shots really connected on Doug. He had a small black spot on his eye and Ronnie's face was jacked up(damage). The hardest sounding kick hit Doug in the butt. The only semi-decent sub attempt was the armbar, other than that, just attempting one after you got taken down is not ground for an advantage.

    It all comes down to leaving it to the judges. Fact of the matter is Doug lost, he'll get back on track and hopefully get a rematch. We can beat a Dead Horse all day, but a loss is a loss, but I'll have to disagree calling analogies on how Doug should have won as biased

    Doug had about half his shots stuffed also. About 80% of his top game was defending sweeps or submissions, not advancing or damaging. I just really didn't see Doug winning it. Not trying to piss anyone off, just throwing my two cents out there.
