    What was the worst decision that you can remember ever made by judges in the UFC?

    Mine is Michael Bisping vs Matt Hamill UFC 75 in London

    What I saw as many did one of if not the biggest robbery in UFC history...some saw a close fight...
    Either way IMO Matt Hamill dominated Michael Bisping and Bisping got the decision

    Shogun vs Machida I

    Cecil Peoples then said "leg kicks don't do damage", i think...

    One sided expectations turned into a close fight is always bad for the favourite.

    I thought Page won too, but I'm a big fan.

    There's just been so many that I'm pretty numb to it. There's a bad call on almost every card...

    Bas Rutten Kevin Randleman. I mean if you don't take into account the general standard of judging in that era it has to be the worst of any major fight.

    I challenge anyone to watch this fight today and think that such a blatant robbery could happen in modern mma.

    This is so true SuperNerd!
    Underrated post!
    I thought Jones won the Gustafsson fight 3/2
    I thought GSP won the Hendricks fight 3/2
    Never mind the unwritten rule that the champ should be beaten clearly.
    Allot of Sherbros are convinced otherwise, and I think it's because of exactly what you posted.
    I've thought it forever, just couldn't put it as eloquently as you.

    Thanks. That's not my usual talent, lol.

    I've thought about it a lot. It's a really tough position to fight from.

    This.

    Sanchez very clearly lost all 3 rounds. Somehow gets the decision win, via angry face and hitting Pearson's fists with his face.
