Edgar and Maynard Fight to a Draw at UFC 125 and More

Last night a rare thing happened and that is a title fight went to a draw. I really thought Gray Maynard won the fight but the judges saw it differently. They fought to a split draw (48-46, 46-48, 47-47). Other bouts that took place include:

-Lightweight bout: Clay Guida vs. Takanori Gomi
Guida defeated Gomi by submission (guillotine choke) at 4:27 of round 2.

-Welterweight bout: Nate Diaz vs. Dong Hyun Kim
Kim defeated Diaz by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).

-Light Heavyweight bout: Brandon Vera vs. Thiago Silva
Silva defeated Vera by unanimous decision (30-26, 30-27, 30-27).

-Middleweight bout: Chris Leben vs. Brian Stann
Stann defeated Leben by TKO (strikes) 3:37 of round 1.
