    Sandhagen vs dillashaw was razor thin close. But maverick clearly got stolen here. No way in hell did barber win that fight , way to go judges to kill a young, promising prospect early in her career.

    Maverick had two losses already. It's WMMA. They don't care about losses necessarily. Rose has plenty losses. She's 10-4.

    I can't even concentrate on watching low level WMMA so any injustice there never really bothers me.

    Not saying that you shouldn't be outraged about that fight TS, but there are plenty of robberies like that on undercards that fly under the radar.

    I think that people are worked up about this one because Barber is a hype job who a lot of fans find to be personally annoying.

    It’s brutal to see. This can’t merely be incompetence, imo.

    Barber is the next Paige Vanzant to be, looking promising on paper but will probably end on a shady website asking for money in exchange of sexy content. Or in the shadow boxing Realm.

    Actually the worst judgment of the night was not having Phillips first round be a unanimous 10-8

    Like most other people watching, judges are on their phones during boring WMMA fights. Bad decisions shouldn't be surprising.

    Sadly, it should'nt happen. I wouldnt call that fight boring at all too, on paper it was a good matchup.

    True, but this one REEKS. Barber getting the push, lost 2 in a row, they have the whole package about "getting back on track" and "youngest this and that." -- Someone told those judges to find a way for her to win. Of course Sal D is one of the fuckers giving a shit score, much like always.

    No one in their right mind had is 2-1 Barber, no one in their right mind gave R3 a 10-8 for Barber -- so throw that right out the window.

    So there's plenty of examples, yes, but this is SOOOOO friggin obviously a 2-1 Mav situation, there HAD to be some douchebaggery involved.

    10+10+9 Mav = 29
    9+9+10 Barb = 28

    So while it's not uncommon to have this shit fly under the radar, this one is front and center BULLSHIT and even someone who doesn't watch MMA can see how fucked it is. GIFT wrapped decision with VERY questionable circumstances.

    I don't think I could care any less at this point. Terrible judging/questionable UFC decisions aren't going to magically change and this definitely isn't a fight I care much about. Maybe in another 25 years things will change.

    I can't wait for the next thread about this fight result. I'm sure it will be just as riveting as the rest.

    The ufc doesent have a single word to say about this, the judging is independant of the UFC banner. Anyway, still sick in my stomach for maverick, she's a young promising prospect and i hope she will rebound from all this.

    Maycee dominated the third and won the second of the first two warm up rounds. Virgins of sherdog on suicide watch!
