My Scorecard: Rampage WON!
I feel like a lonely man on an isolated Island, but I scored this fight for Rampage Jackson. I have only seen the fight once, and this is my initial reaction, but I thought it important to get this down in print first. I scored this 48-47 or 47-47, depending on if you score the second round 10-8 for Forrest, and I couldn’t argue with that score. At worst this was a draw in my book, and I think I am going to need someone to explain to me how Forrest’s kicks scored more than Quinton’s power shots. That seems to be the only reason why Forrest won as far as I can tell, and quite frankly I think Rampage did more damage than Forrest did to him. The first two rounds were definitive, but the last three are open for interpretation. I scored the first, third, and forth rounds decisively for Rampage. Forrest won the second and probably the fifth, and if he got a 10-8 round in the second the worst this should have been was a draw. I am not declaring a complete disaster here, I definitely need to re-watch this a few times before I can confidently confirm or deny my initial thoughts. I know I am probably in the minority here, but I just wanted to know if anyone else sees it like I did. I think the bottom line either way, the rematch has to happen and very soon.
P.S. One more thing, I can't make up my mind of Rampage fought that badly or is Forrest really that good? Thoughts?
