    What is the point of getting this rematch done in Brazil again?!
    I know that in theory Moraes is also Brazilian but after the BS decision that happened last time - Asuncao also has a robbery decision against TJ in Brazil -
    Moraes would have to finish him to win basically which is v hard to do vs Asuncao.

    One judge actually scored it 30-27 for Asuncao.

    Why would Brazilian judges prefer Assuncao over Moraes?

    Doesn't really matter where the fights are, popular American judges like Sal D'Amato and Chris Lee have done fights in Brazil

    Why would they prefer Asuncao to Moraes since they are both Brazilians?
    Dunno, ask them why one scored it 30-27 Asuncao despite media scoring 18-1 for Moraes. Maybe Moraes is less of a Brazilian.
    Also it doesn't matter if the judges are American or Brazilian, they will help the local fighter if the event takes place there.

    Because Moraes is American citizen for like 10 years?

    Same with Assuncao. He has American children and is the best English speaking Brazilian in the UFC.
