The UFC president Dana White was both surprised and disturbed by the scoring in the title fight, especially the 10-8 scoring in the fifth round.
“When I found out one of the judges scored it 10-8, this guy should be fucking investigated for this. This is the craziest shit I’ve ever seen in my life,” White said at a recent press conference.
‘“As I was talking to people, there’s a seminar tomorrow with the athletic commission on 10-8’s. Especially with a title fight, there’s so much at stake in a title fight. It’s more than just money, show and win, pay-per-view, championships and legacies. It’s just you have to have the best of the best in title fights. They’ve assured me this guy isn’t a bad guy. He just fucked up and made a mistake. It’s unfortunate. There’s no way in hell that was a 10-8 round.”
Grasso vs Shevchenko 3 will happen
The UFC president revealed that a third fight will be next.
“You have to do the rematch,” White said. “We will rematch them. It’s the right thing to do. It’s the fight that needs to happen, and yeah.”
