Ross Pearson Awarded $30,000 Win Bonus From UFC Fight Night 42 Loss
Posted by Larry Csonka on 06.11.2014

- UFC Fight Night 42 featured one of the most controversial split decisions in recent memory as Diego Sanchez defeated Ross Pearson (30-27 Sanchez, 30-27 Pearson, 29-28 Sanchez). Mmadecisions.com reports that the 14 media members from the event scored the fight for Pearson, 13 of them scored it 30-27 for Pearson. UFC President Dana White also felt that Pearson won the fight, and has awarded him his $30,000 win bonus from the event. White also commented on the situation, stating the following to UFC.com

"Diego lost that fight. The judge who judged that fight should never be judging fights again. He never should be judging fights of this caliber. He needs to go back down into the amateurs and really learn how to judge a fight. First of all, you gave every round to Diego, who got dropped in the second round. It was a knockdown. How does Diego win that round? It's not possible. I don't know how you can vote against him, but it goes to show that you're never safe. That's as bad as it gets."

White also stated that the promotion is not looking to book a rematch. The promotion is internally treating the bout as a victory for Pearson as they move forward.
