Judges ripped as Ring wins UFC 127 decision

By The Canadian Press

SYDNEY, Australia — UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta and president Dana White blasted the judges at UFC 127 when they awarded Calgary middleweight Nick (The Promise) Ring a decision over Japan‘s Riki Fukuda.

Fukuda took Ring down repeatedly and appeared to do more damage in the clinch but all three judges still scored the mixed martial arts bout 29-28 to the Canadian.

“Unbelievable,” tweeted Fertitta.

“Judges suck again!!” added White in a tweet that contained a trademark F-bomb. “Fukuda got robbed!!!”

“Wow what fight were they watching??? I thought he lost all 3 rounds damn,” tweeted former light-heavyweight champion Chuck (The Iceman) Liddell, who is now a UFC vice-president.

“Fukuda got robbed bad,” added Canadian lightweight Mark Bocek.

Ring, who looked to land kicks and jabs from the outside, improved to 11-0 while Fukuda fell to 17-5.

The crowd at the Acer Arena booed the decision.

“Wow, that doesn’t make any sense,” UFC commentator Joe Rogan said on the TV broadcast of the undercard fight, which took place Sunday afternoon Australian time.

“I don’t know what those judges were seeing. I have no idea how they scored that fight.”
