Featherweight Steven Peterson took on Matt Bessette in a featured bout on UFC Fight Pass of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ Finale Season 27 card. With both of these talented fighters competing in only their sophomore fight having lost their respective debuts, stakes were high for both of them to get a win.

In a back and forth battle, Peterson edged Bessette via a razor thin split decision. However that was not the only split decision of the night as there were three more fights who had the same fate. As controversial as it might sound, Peterson believes he won the fight fair and square.

“That was bull(expletive),” Peterson said backstage after the fight. “I won the second and third round without a doubt. But, hey, all the credit to Matt. He stuck in there. He made it a war. He landed a couple good head kicks, but there wasn’t any power on them. It was like a slap in the face. I controlled the rounds, got the takedowns. I felt like I won rounds two and three without a doubt.”

“I fight through adversity,” Peterson said. “I’m the man of steel. Nothing can keep me down. … Anything that happens to me, you can never count me out. My whole life I’ve been battling adversity. You’re going to see me do that my whole career. No matter what I go through, you’re going to see me come out on top.”
