    Biggest robberies/controversial desicions in UFC title fights ? I don't remember too much rn, help me out?

    The ones I can remember so far are: Reyes vs Jones, Santos vs Jones, Shevchenko vs Nunes, GSP vs Hendrics, DJ vs Cejudo, etc...

    Fun fact: All those desicions went to the champ, except with DJ vs Cejudo (and that's because they DJ wasn't a draw).

    You can clearly see how the UFC was playing its cards, giving it to the biggest names/potential draws.

    A lot of people talk about the boxing mafia but they don't say anything about the UFC mafia, and I'm not even a boxing fan but that's what it is.

    The only time Dana White complained about one of those desicions was with GSP and Hendricks and that was only because GSP retired after that fight and Dana was angry af. With Reyes vs Jones, Dana just said "who gives a sh7t?" (I'm now Jones is throwing him under the bus, KARMA)

    That was razor close and could have gone either way.

    Not a robbery.

    48-47 Valentina.

    This thread again? There haven’t been any title fight fuck ups since the last time. A few weeks ago.

    Come on.

    Dude you probably weren't around 11 years ago when the "ufc is a mafia/monopoly" threads were abundant on this site.

    That was razor close. It was recently uploaded to YouTube so anyone can watch it.

    The difference maker, for me, was TJ had the very bad strategy of being flat-footed as the fight went on and kept throwing constant head kicks that didn't come close to landing.

    In recent memory there are Jones vs Reyes and Jones vs Santos.

    Cruz clearly won that fight , No way that TJ won that fight.

    yeah 2 is a toss up, not as bad a robbery as the first by any means, but i think i did have rizzo edge out the second fight.

    someone posted the free ffight link to the first one recently near the tony/gaethje fight when ufc put it on yt. always a good watch the first fight is.

    Just remembered how bad Shevchenko x Nunes was, god damn I remember that one being a pretty bad one. Thought Valentina clearly won 4-1, if you wanted to be generous you could give the 5th to Nunes for the TD although she did nothing with it but get beat up in Shevchenko's guard, even then still Valentina should've won 3-2.

    Oh well
