Chael Sonnen believes Jan Blachowicz did enough to get his hand raised against Alex Pereira at UFC 291
At UFC 291, Chael Sonnen gave his thoughts on the fight between Jan Blachowicz and Alex Pereira. After losing to Pereira in a close fight through split decision, Blachowicz referred to the result as a robbery after the fight.
Sonnen didn’t go quite as far as Blachowicz, but he agreed that the Pole ought to have been crowned the winner over ‘Poatan’.
According to “The American Gangster,” the judges got it wrong and Pereira would have lost the fight if the match had been scored using logic and more close observation. “The American Gangster” argues that the judges got it wrong.
Chael Sonnen posted the following message on his YouTube account in which he discussed his opinions on the co-main event of UFC 291.
“There is no plausible scenario in which Alex Pereira was victorious in that battle, and Chael does not hold that viewpoint. That can be accounted for. He was eliminated in Rounds 1 and 3. He did not have a 10-8 round when the second round was being fought, and even if he had, he would not have been awarded a draw because he did not have a 10-8 round.
“There was no robbery involved. I have saw far worse. It was not acceptable… You could look at takedowns, you could look at attempts, you could look at strikes, you could look at kicks, and you could look at defense to determine who was successful in dodging more punches. There was nothing in the statistical analysis that might lead one to believe that Alex would come out on top.
