    So we had a lot of close fights with some controversial decisions.

    Ewell defeated Martinez via split decision.
    Murphy defeated Lee via split decision.
    Giles defeated Krause via split decision.
    Lewis vs Latifi via unanimous decision.
    Ige defeated Bektic via split decision.
    Jones vs Reyes via unanimous decision.

    Split decisions in 4 fights, some questionable judging...

    Who got robbed the most today in your opinion? I really feel like there should be more majority draw decisions in general. So many close, close fights which are so hard to score under todays rules. It’s not fair when a guy gets a L when his opponent wasn’t any better. Why don’t just score it as a draw any extremely close fight?

    Ewell/Martinez was the worst.

    Ewell Martinez was bad but IMO Murphey Lee was worse

    The rest were close fights but I had the same winners

    I don’t know, I feel like it should have been a draw.

    Lee didn’t lose her fight either in my opinion.

    I mean the scoring. One judge scored 30-27 for Ewell (for Murphy as well) so those were the worst.

    Some of those fights could have (and should have) been draws.

    Probably Ewell v. Martinez but it's a pick 'em with the Murphy v. Lee Fight as far as most egregious, but in terms of consequence, it was the Reyes v. Jones fight. Reyes should've been "and NEW". ;)
