via www.tapology.com

Gleison Tibau took the split decision over Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 139 tonight. He came into the fight undefeated in 2011 with wins over Kurt Pellegrino and Rafaelo Oliveira. Rafael dos Anjos was riding a big win over George Sotiropoulos which he won by knockout. 

The fight was extremely even in the first round with neither fight able to establish a clear advantage over the other. The one highlight of the round was when Tibau landed a big right hand that staggered dos Anjos. Tibau was unable to take advantage and the round ended. 

The second round was clearly Gleison Tibau's when he had dos Anjos rocked against the fence. He threw continuous overhands hoping to finish dos Anjos but just couldn't find the button. The round ended but it was as clear as day that he was the winner of the round. The third began and dos Anjos had Tibau stunned a bit with a big straight right. He wasn't able to push the action and Tibau was able to finish the round strong. 

The judges scored the fight 30-27, 29-28, and 28-29 for Gleison Tibau who picked up his tenth UFC victory.
