    That's what you get for point fighting for 3 boring rounds with no attempt whatsoever to finish.

    No, you can't justify the decision. Nothing justifies that.

    He did drop Diego and try to follow up several times, Diego was fairly tentative in comparison.

    No attempt whatsover? He rocked and dropped Diego, what was Ross supposed to do, go face first into a "exciting brawl bro"? Ross kicked Diego's ass, get your that's what you get out of here. There's no excuse for this kind of robberies, specially when they fuck up a fighter who deserved his bonus win and the win on his record.

    So Pearson should be punished for point fighting and Diego is rewarded for what?

    Because dropping your opponent and significantly outlanding them means you're point fighting. If you were a professional fighter I'm sure you would choose to fight the same way.

    This... And when was the last time Diego was actually finished?

    Melendez tried to rush in and play Diego's game and was nearly KOed for it. Ross fought the perfect fight and was far more aggressive than Sanchez in the process.

    Diego must've had those judges on payroll....nothing can justify that. If Dana doesn't make scene about this, I'll even be disappointed in him.

    I would like to hear the judge who scored it 30-27 for Diego explain how he felt Diego won every round even the one he was dropped in. Something needs to be done to make judges accountable for their decisions. UFC is looking more and more like boxing with decisions like this.

    I agree with the TS. Neither fighter really went for the finish. Whenevr they starting connecting they both immediately backed off, avoiding the clinch completely. It was a boring fight and the judges probably fell asleep, woke up at the end, and just made up some score.

    It was a robbery, but Ross could have finished Diego many times if he wanted to. He crumpled under the pressure and paid for it big time.

    This doesn't justify the bad decision, just makes it hard to feel bad for Ross.

    As much as I love the user name - Diego did much less.

    I get your point, but neither fighter really tried to engage. So when all things are equal, the person who was the better point fighter should get the win, and that was obviously Pearson

    As I said in my first post, neither fighter tried to finish. We can criticize both for a boring fight, but at the end of the day, someone has to win, and on the scorecard, it's obviously Pearson.

    Dana is not going to be happy about this.

    That was literally one of the worst decisions I have ever seen. I have lost my faith completely in MMA judging.

    What was Diego rewarded for. Pearson dropped Diego in the 2nd and had him hurt in the third. He was in control of that fight 100 percent. There should be no justification in that.
