I scored Jake Shields vs. Martin Kampmann 29-28 for the Dane. I felt Jake controlled the first period with his grappling, Kampmann scored effectively with strikes in the second, and Kampmann's advantage standing outweighed Shields' grappling in the third.

FightMetric released their report for the fight, and they concluded the fight was...a draw.

And not just a draw by the ten-point must system, but a perfect draw. Each fighter was awarded 160 points according to the algorithm for the FightMetric Effectiveness Score. Here's the breakdown by round:

FightMetric also released a report for the championship bout between Cain Velasquez and Brock Lesnar. Want a mathematical description of the ambush Velasquez unloaded on Lesnar? In just over four minutes of fighting, Velasqeuz landed 48 strikes (31 of which FightMetric deemed "significant"), 25 power shots to the head, 1 takedown, and 2 knockdowns. He also came home with 1 UFC heavyweight championship belt.
