    We've definitely seen some fights that ended with a controversial decision but have any of them been overturned?

    I've seen a decision overturned outside the UFC without a failed drug test but I can't recall any happening in the UFC even though there have been plenty of fighters who have said they would file a petition with the governing body.

    Sometimes, they aren't even overturned with a failed test (see Lesnar v Overeem).

    Penn v GSP 1 is still controversial.

    Then there's this decision:


    This was changed to a majority draw.

    Did Penn file to have the decision overturned?

    I remember he tried to have the second fight overturned but not the first.

    I get the sense that you're asking whether any "robbery" decisions have been overturned; that is, have any decisions been overturned based on a second-guessing of the judge's scoring? The answer, so far as I am aware, is no. Unless there was a scoring/counting error (as in the Johnson vs. McCall I, above), the decision remains.

    Can't think of one of the top of my head (other than the DJ/McCall fight above), but I remember being confused with Jessica Eye's win over Sarah Kaufman being overturned, because I swear I initially read about a Texas commissioner saying that it was getting overturned because it was a horrible decision and the judges were incompetent, but then Eye failed the drug test for weed and that suddenly became the reason haha.

    Nope, still a TKO

    Overeem didn't fail a test for that fight. He failed right after when he was scheduled to fight JDS at 146. He was removed and replaced by Mir.
