TMMAC's Most Handsome Admin
- Dec 31, 2014
Last weekend’s UFC 247 in Houston, TX featured a number of close decisions which, on more than one occasion, elicited boos from the crowded arena. UFC President Dana White also got in on the judge-bashing. Most notable among the fights that drew controversy was the headliner between UFC lightweight champion Jon Jones and his game competitor Dominick Reyes.
Jones retained his belt with a unanimous decision. The judges gave him scores of 48-47, 48-47 and 49-46. With the MMA community largely agreeing that Reyes had won the first two rounds of the contest (and maybe the third), the 49-46 scorecard was targeted for criticism.
