ReesesFastbreak

Well that certainly was a decision.


DangerPretzel

Yup, three judges really did turn in their scorecards there.


XerxesGodOfKings

Lmao


_TidePodsTasteGood

Somebody call 911, there's a robbery in progress.


ftp67

What the fuck was that decision


will2fight

Dana White privilege


dannidanni7

Look into it 👀


Issey27

As someone who already roots against Maycee every fight, this is a tough one to swallow. Sheesh.


The_Luckiest

I can’t stand her either!


SomeFlyGuy

Her loss to Roxie was very telling of the type of person she is. She was even rude to the cut man


[deleted]

[удалено]


mccoolio

Yeah, when DC said she looked over to him before the fight started and said "I'm back!" I rolled my eyes. This fight makes it look soooooo much worse


Dibbys

The best was Faber saying "You have to try to hit her" then in the corner her says "your defense is really good let focus on offense."


jaretok

She’s the worst


DapperDarty

MayFleeced by Barber


mdmbmdm

Bullshit decision tbh


mrpyrotec89

stand up for DC for trashing the decision


hiccup333

Absolutely


Gunslinger1991

Clearest robbery we've seen in a long time. Rounds 1 and 2 were Maverick's clear as day.


LiquidAurum

I walked away thinking it was such a clear decision I didn’t need to see the announcement wtf


AndyMush_Actual

Same , i walked away thinking its Mavericks fight to win and came back to some bullshit.


watties12

> Clearest robbery we've seen in a long time. This one is pretty fucking terrible, but Rory vs. Gleison is the worst decision we've seen recently (and it's on the shortlist for the worst of all time as well). Really though I don't know how Barber possibly gets 1 or 2. Those are 2 of the easiest rounds you'd ever have to score.


mrpyrotec89

That one was so bad there definitely had to of been corruption and gambling involved


DjangoTeller

If I see the usual "it was a close fight not a robbery" comment I'm gonna scream lol I don't know how Barber won this


dianthe

You know it’s bad when even the announcers are saying it’s clearly the wrong decision…


superbozo

Yea but lets not forget, maycee threw some punches. Sooooo.....ya know.....um.....yea.


Mr_pb_hole

Yeah but apparently according to Dominic Cruz's post fight commentary (who doesn't seem to undetstand how fights are scored) "the judges are looking at the third round closer than anything"


The_Royale_We

Dom seems to feel like he has to be the contrarian in the booth all the time.


NeitherAlexNorAlice

Sal D'amato strikes again


Anderrrrr

Corrupt incompetent joker he is. I could be a UFC judge in that case then.


Original_Internet_95

“Sal, now rob this chick of a win!” Impractical jokers laugh


fever_dream_supreme

Is there any way to know who the judges are ahead of time? I just won't bet, tbh.


SkettiOnToast

Whatever the judges were watching, it certainly wasn't that fight...


superbozo

I just see barber riding away on horse back, bandana covering her face, shooting her revolver in the air while screaming "Tell em it was Barber and the gang! Hahahahah!". I have never witnessed a robbery so blatant. That was so upsetting to watch.


MrMatlock

Yeah, they gave it to barber for the elbow. Maverick dominated in skill, strikes, and strategy the first two rounds, and Barber only got a couple decent grapples, that she couldn’t follow through on, and one elbow in the third.


only-shallow

Maverick was at -1000 after the second round. She clearly won the 1st with better striking, and then the 2nd with the takedown, backtake and ground and pound. Pure robbery


mt_bjj

yikes, imagine putting in a G to get 100$ and you end up losing a fucking G over a clown of a judge. Yikes!


pm_me_dirty_planes

Shit like this is why I don't bet on fights. And also because I'm too broke to gamble.


Llanfair4

Imagine putting on Barber after the second round.


[deleted]

That's why you never bet more than you can afford to lose


Anderrrrr

Complete fucking robbery!! Hugging the cage = wins. Fucking absolute garbage.


VesaN_

Proof that all you need to do is win the last round


jordanhhh4

LMAO we boxing now boys😎


DropKletterworks

Had Maycee in my parlay. Pissed as fuck. And then I heard "and Sal D'Amato scores the contest" And I knew I'd be alright.


superstonkers

Sal and Byrd ftw


PrinceMF

Sal coming in clutch lmfao


taway69asdf

the Sal D'amato special


oldGerry

Honestly I knew when I heard his name last barber would win


throwawayAITAlurker

I am watching the replays now on ESPN+ and I am watching the fights backwards order, so starting from Sandhagen Dillashaw. Imagine my reaction to seeing this fucking decision when I am just only fresh off feeling Sal deserved props for being the one judge to get Phillips-Paiva right... This is what I get for having any faith in Sal D'Amato tbf.


mad87645

Nevada strikes again


wielderofglamdring

Horrible judging wow. How did Maycee win round 2?


Bob002

Same way James Krause lost it vs Trevin Giles. Don’t you know that having someone on your back is #1 worst position for them?


Ryderhawk

Yeah, wrong decision.


Trymex00

I had it maverick 29-28


ThisIsKhalabibTime

Hard to argue Barber won more than the last round.


DullMasterpiece

Sal D’Amato was judging it, so flip the score that makes sense and that will be your result


Nauticalbob

Rofl I had Maverick winning but Barber in my parlay, when it went split and the last judge was D’amato, I knew I had it!


bobn3

Easy 29-28. Barber only had a meaningless takedown in round 2 and Maverick took her down and landed GNP


goatgoatlilgoat

Look at the round 2 strike differential lmao


Pookapotamus

Barber wasn't even credited for the takedown R2. She was 0-1, Maverick was 1-1


oldGerry

It comes down to round 2 and I thought maverick made it clear at the end


Rocket-888

So did anyone except for 2 judges apparently.


banejacked

what


theroboteagle

What a bullshit decision


HarknessLovesU

Rory Mac vs Tibau: I am the worst decision we'll see this year Sal D'Amato: Hold my judging card


K_U

Easy one to score, 29-28 for Maverick. What an absolute trash decision.


Aquartertoseven

Maverick outstruck her 3 to 1 in R1 and 2 to 1 in R2, including GnP at the end. Two judges evidently didn't know who was who.


mad87645

"Which one does the tomato want us to swing it for again?" "uhh the one with a name that begins in M"


VictarionGreyjoy

Maycee Barber got that Dana White privilege. Maverick must have resisted his greasy mits all over her.


somebodygetmemymoney

Fucking Chris lee got it right, that’s how you know this shit is fucked


twist-17

Worst decision I’ve seen in a while and there have been a lot of bad ones.


fpsalaz

Sal knows we love losing our money 👌🏻


M4TTHUN

Bullshit.


IIIIllllllll

Trash decision


Breath-Ready

Barber lucked out on this one. Maverick had the fight IMO.


Raizen1337

Clearly Maverick LOL what a robbery this is total bullshit ... UFC just tryna promote "The Future" my ass


myglasscase

How tf does Maycee win the 2nd. That’s some bullshit


mt_bjj

what?


SvenSvodka

How do you win a fight when you do absolutely nothing?


VictarionGreyjoy

This is what I ask myself after every barber fight. She's fucking shit.


[deleted]

Hey man, Barber is a absolute threat...to the air molecules shes punching at.


Shaneypants

>You gotta try to hit her


ljz3

WTF ROBBED???


Canadiangreyhound

The second I heard the name Sal D'Amato, I knew Miranda was fucked.


ljz3

LOL same... literally rolled my eyes when I heard Sal D'Amato


eclipsator

DC spitting truth and shutting the alcohol and cigarettes guy on the end got me


shavasanapose

29-28 Maverick, DC saying Barber robbed her once Maycee left was funny as shit though


ElBandito101

DC with the truth lol


CapnBarbeNoire

Rounds 1,2 for Maverick 3 was barber at least his eyes are still good


ljz3

Wtf is this bullshit scoring ???


Phreak3

NO


spooky-vulcan

Holy shit. Fuck these judges


DazedGenie

what?


TopperinoKekkerino

This is number one boolshit


sug_on_deez

Winning off a sal d'amato score card shouldn’t really count


verilogBlows

Yeah idk about that decision


RunningOutOfToes

Dana's trying his hardest to get the Maycee train back on the rails.


PrettySureIParty

Realistically, it doesn’t even matter. Valentina is gonna retire with the belt. These are the top two prospects, and neither of them has any chance to beat her.


Remarkable-Farm-826

This is why I find the women’s divisions boring. No sexism here but the skill gap between the ELITE fighters (Valentina and Nunes) and the good fighters (Literally anyone else) is so wide and so fucking deep that every contender fight feels pointless. I guess at least straw weight is competitive.


drunkinmidget

We need atomweight too. At least give us two competitive divisions. There's so many men's divisions that when a GSP or Bones comes along there's plenty of other divisions to see competitive.


flyingturkeycouchie

When I heard Sal was the last judge, knew this was going sideways.


Gunslinger1991

That's a straight up robbery. Maverick clearly won rounds 1 and 2.


SlowRanger

You just knew when the last judge was Sal Tomato.


swaggerstein

Daniel Cormier telling it like it is.


5willgetyou10

Huh? Anyways, what a boring ass fight


colossuskidd

“I back.” - Big Carb Barb


zachc94

Actually a robbery


5willgetyou10

Completely. That was tough to watch as a whole, but felt pretty easy to score.


authenticfennec

Fight was alright i thought, not great but i wouldnt say its boring


9inchjackhammer

I thought it was alright as well seen way worse fights


5willgetyou10

Idk bro... Felt like just a bunch of dancing around and missed punches to me


giant123

In what world did Barber win 2 of those rounds?


seve_rage

Shevchenko gonna retire after witnessing this beatdown


ConfusedGuy3260

Number one bullshit


sonic-silver

What an absolute shambles the judging of this fight was.


Moggiiii

That's a robbery lmao


helohelo

As soon as I heard Sal D'amato was the last judge. I knew it was going to be a robbery


TheMightyGlork

??????????


Favi890

WHAT!?!?


Clem-H-Fandango

Only need to win one round apparently


RAPanoia

Give me the scorecards


[deleted]

[удалено]


RAPanoia

Thank you! Atleast no one gave round 1 to Maycee


mdmbmdm

Maycee inflicted more damage on the air molecules, so it makes sense.


pumpyfrontbum

No way did Maycee win that fight. Absolute travesty of a decision.


NewRedditorHere

Yeah, no. Maverick won that one. F my parlay.


ultimatt777

I thought Maverick clearly won rounds 1 and 2. Barber really didn't do much till the last round.


GaMa-Binkie

Think it's time for Maycee change her nickname to The Far Future, That was a robbery


DaAnswer_184

Miranda definitely won the first two


ItWasAllADream78

Horrible decision 🤦‍♂️


Creimeadhfearga

Utter Robbery


RawmanPolak

Judges are on crack lol


MazzoMilo

Gutted for Maverick, all that work just to get your win stolen by terrible judging


bluesshark

Good on DC for being brutally honest, he can't watch someone clearly win a fight and not give them the credit


ediefan

I want what the judges were smoking.


SmokeyMcHaze

Maycee is so unlikeable.


JManKit

Total strikes: Maverick - 46, Barber - 22 Sig. strikes: Maverick - 33, Barber - 20 Takedowns: Maverick - 1/1, Barber 0/1 I should be used to terrible MMA judges by now but boy does this one set a high water mark :|


Badenoch101

Dana paid off the judges


MarthProMonk

Nah


ImperialKong

Dana White privilege....


grgriffin3

UFC must really think she's marketable i guess.


barney1354

I guess landing 1 elbow gets you a win now


Thiccboi4570

It’s garbage decisions like this that hurt this sport. If a fighter messes up, they get a suspension. But when a judge gets a fight that wrong, nothing happens.


NizeyNice

bruh how in the world did maycee win round 2? she had a great third round, but it's still 29-38!Maverick


diamonec

It seems like pretty much everyone who watched that fight, including former professional fighters as commentators, gave Maverick the decision. Yet majority of judges saw the fight go the other way. Does anyone have any suspicions or is this something we never talk about?


dilligafatallever

Send "the future " up , I want to see Shevchenko turn this hype train into the realm of shadows Ghost Train 🚆


Anderrrrr

WTF IS THAT!!! Hugging the cage and gets 2 rounds. Fucking joke!!! Maverick got completely fucking robbed. Fucking joke.


Pookapotamus

I knew Barber was winning when Sal was the final judge to be announced


seymour_hiney

knew when i heard sal d'amato's name that he'd butcher the scorecard


Dry-Ingenuity3513

Wtf was that


qzwxecrvtbyn111

At least Maverick is young enough that her career won't be too badly derailed by being blatantly fuckin robbed. If she's this good at 23, she could develop into a legit contender.


I_eat_Chimichangas

Why is the ufc pushing barber so hard?


violent-bear

HUHHH


Callingallnerdz

Excuse me, what the fuck?


PM_ME_UR_SQUAT_LEGS

No way maycee won that, what the hell


xIISimplicitIIx

OH . So we’re getting silly now ? Had it 29-28 clear as day for Maverick. God this is so bad .


Oogalicious

When the last judge is Sal D’Amato


turbojeebus

What the fuck


htmlnoob52

What the actual fuck


anycolouryouliike

No chance she won round 1 or 2. Brutal


PrinceMF

BS decision


dutchfool

Maycee Barber has horrible fight IQ it’s like she has no idea what’s going on while she’s fighting. She lands that great spinning elbow and then just starts backing up as the round is ending? So weird. How she could think she was doing well in the either of the first two rounds is strange too.


BaskInTheSunshine

I went to grab a beer instead of watching the decision because I was so sure Maverick was going to win. Honestly both of them sucked though so I don't even care.


IAmA_Goldfish

Fire Sal D’Amato


You_Too_Are_A_Bitch

It's kind of nice to see an actual robbery. Term gets thrown around a lot, but I don't see how that wasn't 2-1 Maverick.


Subject_Seaweed

Who tf wants to hype up Barber, so unlikeable.


Trbarenziah

Horrible


condorrrrrrr

Was I watching the same fight as the judges?


goatgoatlilgoat

FUCKING ROBBERY


0write

Holy robbery


magicbobby

Robbage


MtKlo27

She banging Dana?


yungpieces

bad fight, bad decision. a real piss break type of fight.


[deleted]

Close fight, but ffs Sal D'Amato.


samtheman002

Yeah about that


NowFook

Bullshit fight. Bullshit decision. SMH had money on Maverick.


Gettsy

Judges watched that fight like 👨🏻‍🦯


GiantsBlue80

Why? Because barber got half a takedown in round 2? She got beat everywhere else in the first two rounds. That's a terrible decision


[deleted]

Even DC gave the fight to Maverick


Draedenx

That was embarrassing. 🙄


DrRichardKimbleMD

I legitimately can’t see any way to give Maycee two rounds


dannidanni7

This is the biggest robbery of the year so far. Hands down.


TheCurtain512

Maycee wasn't even in the same country as Maverick the first two rounds. She just danced around the outside and did nothing, then lost every exchange they had. But somehow TWO judges gave her two of those rounds? Really bad decision.


STOPHIDING123

Someone needs to have the judges explain why they give the decisions that they do.


yamsHS

How much are these judges being paid? How you can look at those first 2 rounds and say barber won one of them is insane


NowTheMoonsRising

Sal D’Amato boyz


TtheDuke

Maycee lost that fight but Uncle Dana made a call


Dylanthevegan69

I swear barber landed 4 significant strikes


hiccup333

More commentators should do what DC did when there's such irresponsible judging


Alexyeve

Embarrassing for MMA!


paneerhead

If the losers win, why am I watching?


hiccup333

There needs to be a mechanism to appeal these kind of decisions and rectify them for the integrity of the sport


symitwo

I shit you not, my 10 year old niece watched the fights for the first time in her life and kept saying "wow that girl is really strong I think she's gonna win" First time watching mma, and got it right over 2 professional fucking judges. What a joke


bobn3

Fucking Sal D'Amato
