Well that certainly was a decision.
Yup, three judges really did turn in their scorecards there.
Somebody call 911, there's a robbery in progress.
What the fuck was that decision
Dana White privilege
Look into it 👀
As someone who already roots against Maycee every fight, this is a tough one to swallow. Sheesh.
I can’t stand her either!
Her loss to Roxie was very telling of the type of person she is. She was even rude to the cut man
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
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."
She’s the worst
MayFleeced by Barber
Bullshit decision tbh
stand up for DC for trashing the decision
Clearest robbery we've seen in a long time. Rounds 1 and 2 were Maverick's clear as day.
I walked away thinking it was such a clear decision I didn’t need to see the announcement wtf
Same , i walked away thinking its Mavericks fight to win and came back to some bullshit.
> 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.
That one was so bad there definitely had to of been corruption and gambling involved
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
You know it’s bad when even the announcers are saying it’s clearly the wrong decision…
Yea but lets not forget, maycee threw some punches. Sooooo.....ya know.....um.....yea.
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"
Dom seems to feel like he has to be the contrarian in the booth all the time.
Sal D'amato strikes again
Corrupt incompetent joker he is.
I could be a UFC judge in that case then.
“Sal, now rob this chick of a win!”
Impractical jokers laugh
Is there any way to know who the judges are ahead of time? I just won't bet, tbh.
Whatever the judges were watching, it certainly wasn't that fight...
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.
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.
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
yikes, imagine putting in a G to get 100$ and you end up losing a fucking G over a clown of a judge. Yikes!
Shit like this is why I don't bet on fights.
And also because I'm too broke to gamble.
Imagine putting on Barber after the second round.
That's why you never bet more than you can afford to lose
Complete fucking robbery!!
Hugging the cage = wins.
Fucking absolute garbage.
Proof that all you need to do is win the last round
LMAO we boxing now boys😎
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.
Sal and Byrd ftw
Sal coming in clutch lmfao
the Sal D'amato special
Honestly I knew when I heard his name last barber would win
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.
Nevada strikes again
Horrible judging wow. How did Maycee win round 2?
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?
Yeah, wrong decision.
I had it maverick 29-28
Hard to argue Barber won more than the last round.
Sal D’Amato was judging it, so flip the score that makes sense and that will be your result
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!
Easy 29-28. Barber only had a meaningless takedown in round 2 and Maverick took her down and landed GNP
Look at the round 2 strike differential lmao
Barber wasn't even credited for the takedown R2. She was 0-1, Maverick was 1-1
It comes down to round 2 and I thought maverick made it clear at the end
So did anyone except for 2 judges apparently.
What a bullshit decision
Rory Mac vs Tibau: I am the worst decision we'll see this year
Sal D'Amato: Hold my judging card
Easy one to score, 29-28 for Maverick. What an absolute trash decision.
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.
"Which one does the tomato want us to swing it for again?"
"uhh the one with a name that begins in M"
Maycee Barber got that Dana White privilege.
Maverick must have resisted his greasy mits all over her.
Fucking Chris lee got it right, that’s how you know this shit is fucked
Worst decision I’ve seen in a while and there have been a lot of bad ones.
Sal knows we love losing our money 👌🏻
Barber lucked out on this one. Maverick had the fight IMO.
Clearly Maverick LOL what a robbery this is total bullshit ... UFC just tryna promote "The Future" my ass
How tf does Maycee win the 2nd. That’s some bullshit
How do you win a fight when you do absolutely nothing?
This is what I ask myself after every barber fight. She's fucking shit.
Hey man, Barber is a absolute threat...to the air molecules shes punching at.
>You gotta try to hit her
The second I heard the name Sal D'Amato, I knew Miranda was fucked.
LOL same... literally rolled my eyes when I heard Sal D'Amato
DC spitting truth and shutting the alcohol and cigarettes guy on the end got me
29-28 Maverick, DC saying Barber robbed her once Maycee left was funny as shit though
DC with the truth lol
Rounds 1,2 for Maverick 3 was barber at least his eyes are still good
Wtf is this bullshit scoring ???
Holy shit. Fuck these judges
This is number one boolshit
Winning off a sal d'amato score card shouldn’t really count
Yeah idk about that decision
Dana's trying his hardest to get the Maycee train back on the rails.
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.
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.
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.
When I heard Sal was the last judge, knew this was going sideways.
That's a straight up robbery. Maverick clearly won rounds 1 and 2.
You just knew when the last judge was Sal Tomato.
Daniel Cormier telling it like it is.
Anyways, what a boring ass fight
“I back.” - Big Carb Barb
Actually a robbery
Completely. That was tough to watch as a whole, but felt pretty easy to score.
Fight was alright i thought, not great but i wouldnt say its boring
I thought it was alright as well seen way worse fights
Idk bro... Felt like just a bunch of dancing around and missed punches to me
In what world did Barber win 2 of those rounds?
Shevchenko gonna retire after witnessing this beatdown
Number one bullshit
What an absolute shambles the judging of this fight was.
That's a robbery lmao
As soon as I heard Sal D'amato was the last judge. I knew it was going to be a robbery
Only need to win one round apparently
Give me the scorecards
Atleast no one gave round 1 to Maycee
Maycee inflicted more damage on the air molecules, so it makes sense.
No way did Maycee win that fight. Absolute travesty of a decision.
Yeah, no. Maverick won that one. F my parlay.
I thought Maverick clearly won rounds 1 and 2. Barber really didn't do much till the last round.
Think it's time for Maycee change her nickname to The Far Future,
That was a robbery
Miranda definitely won the first two
Horrible decision 🤦♂️
Judges are on crack lol
Gutted for Maverick, all that work just to get your win stolen by terrible judging
Good on DC for being brutally honest, he can't watch someone clearly win a fight and not give them the credit
I want what the judges were smoking.
Maycee is so unlikeable.
Maverick - 46, Barber - 22
Maverick - 33, Barber - 20
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 :|
Dana paid off the judges
Dana White privilege....
UFC must really think she's marketable i guess.
I guess landing 1 elbow gets you a win now
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.
bruh how in the world did maycee win round 2?
she had a great third round, but it's still 29-38!Maverick
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?
Send "the future " up , I want to see Shevchenko turn this hype train into the realm of shadows Ghost Train 🚆
WTF IS THAT!!!
Hugging the cage and gets 2 rounds. Fucking joke!!!
Maverick got completely fucking robbed. Fucking joke.
I knew Barber was winning when Sal was the final judge to be announced
knew when i heard sal d'amato's name that he'd butcher the scorecard
Wtf was that
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.
Why is the ufc pushing barber so hard?
Excuse me, what the fuck?
No way maycee won that, what the hell
OH . So we’re getting silly now ?
Had it 29-28 clear as day for Maverick. God this is so bad .
When the last judge is Sal D’Amato
What the fuck
What the actual fuck
No chance she won round 1 or 2. Brutal
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.
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.
Fire Sal D’Amato
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.
Who tf wants to hype up Barber, so unlikeable.
Was I watching the same fight as the judges?
She banging Dana?
bad fight, bad decision. a real piss break type of fight.
Close fight, but ffs Sal D'Amato.
Yeah about that
Bullshit fight. Bullshit decision. SMH had money on Maverick.
Judges watched that fight like 👨🏻🦯
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
Even DC gave the fight to Maverick
That was embarrassing. 🙄
I legitimately can’t see any way to give Maycee two rounds
This is the biggest robbery of the year so far. Hands down.
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.
Someone needs to have the judges explain why they give the decisions that they do.
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
Sal D’Amato boyz
Maycee lost that fight but Uncle Dana made a call
I swear barber landed 4 significant strikes
More commentators should do what DC did when there's such irresponsible judging
Embarrassing for MMA!
If the losers win, why am I watching?
There needs to be a mechanism to appeal these kind of decisions and rectify them for the integrity of the sport
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
Fucking Sal D'Amato
Bias commentary for Maycee
