Former UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes weighs in on last nights controversial decision. The fight was immediately marred with controversy as the split-decision was read in favor of the current champion, Georges St-Pierre.
Social media immediately exploded with anger and confusion, including input from fighters both in the UFC and out.
Now perhaps the most significant input has come from not only a Zuffa employee, but the man who St-Pierre originally won his belt off of and one of the most dominant champions in the promotion’s history, Matt Hughes.
With the decision last night I would have been less surprised if they gave Johny EVERY round. Will go down as worst decision in UFC history.
