UFC 282 has been grabbing the headlines for a controversial outcome of a bout. Paddy Pimblett secured a close unanimous decision victory by scores of 29-28 across the board over Jared Gordon in the co-main event of UFC 282. The bout seemed to be the toughest test of the budding superstar’s career as he ate several big shots from Gordon and was forced to defend against takedown threats throughout the fight. However, it seems the decision of the judges were not convincing. The scorecards from Paddy Pimblett ‘s controversial decision win against Jared Gordon at UFC 282 was recently released.
Pimblett’s decision win garnered backlash from observers. However, ‘The Baddy’ insisted that the fight wasn’t close at all and that he knew heading into the third that he was ahead by two rounds. During his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan, Pimblett claimed:
“Not at all [a close fight]. I won the first two rounds and coasted in the third. I knew I was two rounds up so I didn’t wanna do nothing dangerous and risk losing the fight. I knew for a fact I won the first two rounds pretty easily.”
It has been noted that many believe that Gordon had done enough and should have been awarded the win. UFC bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling is of the same opinion that Jared Gordon deserved the victory. His sentiments were shared by former UFC superstar Nate Diaz and Henry Cejudo, who called the result “the worst decision in UFC history.”
