“There was a judge who scored it 30-27, there’s no logic in it. I’m really sad… I won it and that’s it. Everybody saw it, even the judges. The three judges who gave it to him know deep down I won. In my opinion it’s not a mistake, is called having a bad character, mainly the one who scored 30-27… They want to f— me up, they didn’t want to give me the win once again… He hit me with an elbow really hard, he has heavy hands. It’s been a while since I was last hit that hard. He took me down, got the mount, but that was it. I won the second and third rounds. I’m punched, get kneeled on the face and nothing happens, but then I throw a couple of punches on his face and he gets all dizzy and can walk… It’s complicated… I don’t wanna be a tough guy who pleases the fans who watch. I wanna become a champion.”
In his post-fight interview with Brazilian media outlet, Tatame.com, Fabio Maldonado expressed his complete and utter disgust with the judge’s decision in his fight.
The stats, the analysts, the UFC execs and many fans all scored the bout for the Brazilian after three hard rounds of action, but the officials sitting cage side threw the points towards his opponent.
It was a blatant case of poor judging and just the latest example of such.
Does anyone agree with the decision handed down or are we all in agreeance that Maldonado got robbed?Tags: featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news, UFC on FOX, UFC on FOX 2, ufc on fox 3, UFC on Fuel, UFC on FX
