Georges St-Pierre vs Jake Shields Official UFC 129 Scorecard

It was a few weeks ago when Georges St-Pierre defeated Jake Shields at UFC 129 in Toronto, but now the official scorecard has been released finally showing how the judges scored the fight.

The real relevance here is GSP had gone 30 rounds without losing a single round on a judge’s scorecard, but at UFC 129, according to two judges, the champion lost two rounds during the fight.

The final scorecard comes courtesy of the Ontario Athletics Commission.

Looking over the scorecard, judges Nelson Hamilton and Richard Bertrand scored rounds four and five for the challenger, Shields, while judge Doug Crosby scored all five rounds for St-Pierre.

Interesting to note, St-Pierre suffered an eye injury in the third round of the bout and spent the final 10 minutes wiping blood away and dealing with impaired vision.

St-Pierre went on to win a unanimous decision, but according to two of the judges the champion lost the final two rounds.
