In the main event of UFC San Antonio, welterweight Matt Brown is the newest competitor to destroy Joel Ojeda’s scorecard.After giving Marlon “Chito” Vera the final three rounds and announcing him the winner, the judge has come under heavy fire. Cory Sandhagen was given convincing victories by the other two judges, who gave him scores of 49-46 and 50-45.Marlon “Chito” Vera did nothing to win the fight, according to “The Immortal,” who was speaking on his podcast, The Fighter vs. The Writer.
“The fight was won by the good guy. That’s fantastic, but there are only three scorecards and judges. He was just one strike away from losing that battle. It only highlights the bigger issue, which might be either the judges themselves or the somewhat weak and ambiguous scoring method itself. It’s just a bigger issue.He gave the man three shots. That cannot be justified. Absolutely ridiculous, that is. Leave this place immediately with that. You don’t even need to be aware of the criteria to give Cory the victory in that fight. You couldn’t possibly have scored it [for “Chito” Vera]. Although there have been some really terrible ones before, that scorecard has to rank among the worst.
Even though Cory Sandhagen was able to win, Brown noted that Joel Ojeda’s scorecard reveals a larger issue in mixed martial arts. There may not be a simple answer to the issue, but judges have made far too many rulings that could have a long-term impact on a fighter’s career.
Joel Ojeda’s scorecard: Gilbert Burns calls on FBI to investigate judge
Gilbert Burns may have reacted to Joel Ojeda’s scoring in the UFC San Antonio main event the most strongly. The No. 5 welterweight called on the FBI to intervene in a statement to TMZ Sports, saying:
“Those judges ought to be looked into, in my opinion… Because these judges might be collaborating with the betting organization, we need the FBI to look into them. perhaps obtaining a third party to wager. I just think it’s not genuine, and those guys are doing something crazy. I believe those guys are dishonest and may be attempting to profit from this.
Burns said that even though he wanted Marlon Vera to triumph, it was clear that the bantamweight contender lost the fight. He stated that the fact that there are no consequences for incorrect scorecards, which appear to occur at every event, irks him the most.
It’s uncertain if Joel Ojeda will be penalised for his poor goal-scoring decision.
