Ross Pearson Rewarded As If He Won Against Diego Sanchez

UFC Fight Night 42 took place in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Hometown favorite Diego Sanchez took on Ross Pearson in the co main event of the night. The fight ended with the judge’s decision being one of the worst in UFC history.

UFC president Dana White told sources that not only is Ross Pearson getting paid as if he won the fight, but they’ll be moving forward as if Pearson was awarded the victory.

Here’s what White had to say:

“It was horrible. In the second round, Diego got dropped and one judge still gave him that round. Insanity, man. Pearson got robbed. Pearson won that fight clearly. He easily won that fight. We have to treat Pearson like he won and give him that next level fight. The thing about our sport is there’s never any of that hometown advantage bulls—. Yeah, more people are going to be cheering for you than the other guy, but it’s not like the judges are all from that town. Usually, athletic commissions pull the best from around the country. Whoever gave that fight all three rounds to Sanchez should never judge a fight again.”
