UFC 247 featured an interesting light heavyweight title bout as pound-for-pound #1 champion Jon Jones defeated previously undefeated Dominick Reyes via a controversial unanimous decision.

The fight was definitely close and could have went either way. However many people from the MMA community believed Reyes had done enough to get the job done. One of them being UFC President Dana White. Speaking at the post-fight press conference, White certainly had Reyes winning.

“The scoring was all over the map,” White said. “… Going into the last round, I had Dominick Reyes 3-1 going to the last round. My kids are terrorizing me that the fix is in, ‘How could this happen, Dad?, Reyes won that fight,’ and the list goes on and on of people who are reaching out to me. So it’s not like there’s this landslide of people saying it was a robbery or whatever. People have it all over the place.

“But the reality is, who gives a sh*t? We’re not judges. None of us are judges, the judges called the fight, and that’s that.”

To add up to the controversy was a judge scoring all four rounds for Jones however that certainly didn’t seem to be the case. Apparently the same judge was instrumental in giving two controversial decisions earlier in the night. According to commentator Joe Rogan, one of the judges wasn’t even looking at the prelim fight between Lauren Murphy and Andrea Lee.

Jones had his name written in the history books as he broke the record of most number of wins on championship fights.
