The Ultimate Fighter coaches Joseph Benavidez and Henry Cejudo went to war in the co-main event of last night’s TUF 24 Finale fight card in Las Vegas.

After three-rounds of back and forth action, Bruce Buffer stepped in to the octagon and announced that Benavidez had been awarded the victory via split-decision.

One judge scored the bout 29-27 in favor of Benavidez. Another judge saw the contest 29-27 in favor of Cejudo. But it was judge Glen Trowbridge who shocked fans when he scored the bout 30-26 in favor of Benavidez.

Here is how the pros reacted to the fight and the ridiculous scoring by judge Glen Trowbridge:
