Friday Night Fights Main Event - Souleymane M'Baye - Herman Ngoudjo

Uatu is in a good mood today, so, just for the heck of it, and because he enjoys boxing and has nothing better to do, he's going to score tonight's main event on Friday Night Fights on ESPN.

Round 1
Nothing special happened. No signifcant punches land.
Uatu: 10-9 M'Baye

Round 2
With a minute to go a seemingly out of nowhere, Ngoudjo decides to start throwing bombs. He stepped in close and started winging away.
Uatu: 10-9 Ngoudjo

Round 3
This fight has started to win Uatu over. He is glad he decided to watch this over a re-run of CSI:Miami or UFC best of 2007. Both fighters that round wanted to fight in very close quarters.
Uatu: 10-9 Ngoudjo

Round 4
M'Baye may have damaged the left eye of Ngoudjo a little. This fight is some good stuff. M'Baye looks better this round.
Uatu: 10-9 M'Baye

Round 5
The doctor looks at the eye of Ngoudjo. Through 4 Teddy has it 3-1 Ngoudjo. Hard round to score. Even and nothing too big.
Uatu: 10-9 Ngoudjo

Round 6
This fight is close and sort of interesting and sort of not. No punches standout but at least there are punches. Close again.
Uatu: 10-9 Ngoudjo

Round 7
Nothing clean ever seems to land with these two. Coin toss.
Uatu: 10-9 M'Baye

Round 8
Teddy has Ngoudjo winning at this point. Perhaps Ngoudjo is separating himself a little. More and harder punches but not by much.
Uatu: 10-9 Ngoudjo

Round 9
Teddy says Ngoudjo's eye is now completely closed. Not really looking to slow him up too much.
Uatu: 10-9 M'Baye

Round 10
Teddy likes Ngoudjo much more than Uatu does at this point. Although he has it 6-4 Ngoudjo. But there's only been nine rounds. Not sure how that could be. That might have been the second time the graphic had more rounds than had been fought. Anyway, another close round.
Uatu: 10-9 Ngoudjo

Round 11
Maybe Teddy had a 10-10 round in there. That would explain the score not seeming correct. All apologies to ESPN. He did, the first round. Announcer who is not Tessitore tonight likes Ngoudjo's uppercuts. Does it even need to be said? Another close and difficult round to score.
Uatu: 10-9 Ngoudjo

Round 12
M'Baye is bringing the fight in the 12th. He is throwing hard. One wishes he would have done that the whole time. The ref stops the fight for some loose tape on Ngoudjo. Ngoudjo's eye actually looks sort of bad now. M'Baye didn't exactly close the show and neither did Ngoudjo.
Uatu: 10-9 M'Baye

Almost every moment of every round of this fight was the same. That was sort of a good thing since there weren't many clinches or lulls, but, at the same time, there were no peaks to the action or signature landed punches. This score could be anything but should be close. And if it is to be close, one would think the hometown fighter would get the nod.

Uatu scores it 113- 115 Ngoudjo.
Teddy had it for Ngoudjo.
Judges had it 117-111, 116-112, 115-113, unanimous decison for Herman Ngoudjo.
