“This is where I don’t really understand what I’m watching in terms of the fight,” Cormier said
“Anders fight, Holm fight – both had so much control time against the side of the octagon that I don’t know how they are losing the fight.
“And I think probably the most famous instance in which that happened was Kamaru Usman vs. Jorge Masvidal, the first fight. If there is no value in clinch control, then how did Kamaru win that fight so dominantly the first time he fought Masvidal? I’m not saying dominantly in terms of damage, I’m talking so dominantly across the scorecards. Because very few judges scored a round for Jorge Masvidal outside of Round No. 1. What they did was give value and give credit to Kamaru Usman for putting Jorge Masvidal in a position that he did not want to go to for extended periods of time. That is where I think the judging gets f*cked up a little bit.”
