UFC heavyweight Ben Rothwell shouldn’t be a fan of the latest slate of choices in MMA, calling the judging “additional disgusting these days.”
Rothwell was responding to a Tweet from girls’s strawweight contender Angela Hill, who misplaced a slender break up choice to Claudia Gadelha within the co-main occasion of UFC Florida. The Hill choice was excessive scrutinized by followers and media, as have been the selections giving Dan Ige the victory over Edson Barboza and Tune Yadong defeating Marlon Vera. General, the judging was very poor at UFC Florida and UFC president Dana White mentioned as a lot himself.
In a reply to Hill saying she thought she beat Gadelha, Rothwell took to Twitter to tear the judges for his or her string of dangerous calls in Jacksonville.

Rothwell himself is coming off of a very shut break up choice in opposition to Ovince Saint Preux, however fortunately for “Massive” he got here out on the winner’s finish, with the judging scoring the bout at UFC Jacksonville 29-28, 28-29 and 29-28 in favor of Rothwell regardless of him profitable the primary two rounds of the battle on the scorecards of the vast majority of followers and media. Out of the 16 tracked media scores accessible at MMADecisions.com, 14 media members scored that battle for Rothwell, with simply two for OSP. But, OSP was only one spherical away from profitable the battle on the judges’ scorecards.
MMA judging at all times has and at all times will probably be extraordinarily subjective, however a few of the choices we noticed in Florida through the UFC Jacksonville collection have been fairly terrible. The UFC seems to be like it is going to be heading again to the UFC Apex in Las Vegas subsequent, so hopefully, the variety of dangerous calls by the judges will dwindle going ahead.
Do you agree with Ben Rothwell and his feedback about MMA judging?
