Dana White on Pearson vs Sanchez result : "It was horrible"

http://espn.go.com/mma/story/_/id/11...na-white-says?

Quote:
LAS VEGAS -- There will be no rematch between Diego Sanchez and Ross Pearson.

UFC president Dana White called Sanchez's controversial split decision over Pearson last weekend "insanity" and said the promotion will move forward as if Pearson won the fight.

The lightweight bout, which took place in Sanchez's hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Saturday, was widely denounced as one of the worst decisions in UFC history.

Judges Jeff Collins and Chris Tellez each scored the bout for Sanchez, 30-27 and 29-28, respectively. Judge Marcos Rosales had it 30-27 in Pearson's favor, along with an overwhelming majority of media.

White was not in attendance, but viewed the fight from his vacation home in Bangor, Maine.

"It was horrible," White told ESPN.com. "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."

Pearson's camp filed an appeal of the decision immediately after the bout, according to New Mexico Athletic Commission representative Richard Espinoza. The appeal came in too late to be added to a regularly scheduled NMAC meeting Tuesday.

Espinoza declined to comment on the commission's stance toward the decision.
Good to see the UFC not penalizing Person for the result.

Dana is pretty infamous for handling those sort of things from the behind the scene. I wouldn't be surprised to see Ross come forward and say they took care of him in the very near future. Either way, he advances in the division and Diego fights another fight specifically made just to be entertaining. Everyone wins.

I didn't see the fight, and while I'm a Diego fan, sounds like he obviously lost. If that's the case, Pearson should get his win bonus and be treated like he won. I thought Diego lost to Gomi, so theoretically, Diego could easily be a 5-fight losing streak. BUT, he is technically 2-3 in his last 5, and since he's exciting, he's not remotely close to being cut. So that's the positive that can be taken out.

I thought Sanchez won the fight. I did not think it was a super crazy decision. Perspective I know.

I honestly want to know how you see this. Not trying to slam you at all. I just don't even see how someone who knows the sport could come to that conclusion.

As Dana said, Diego was dropped in the second round. How in the hell could people give that to him? Not to mention being soundly out punched the entire fight.

Pearson clearly needs to work on his grimacing. Also, everytime Sanchez hit him hard, he didn't act unhurt, laughing whilst waving his hands around. These are the fundamentals of MMA scoring, not insignificant stuff like strikes landed.

Yeah, everyone knows 'angry face' is one of the main scoring criteria

Diego is pretty bad now adays. The sport has evolved and he has not. He seems to have plateaued and IDK how the **** he thought he won that but it's embarrassing to sit and listen to Diego sit and say he felt like he won.
