UFC Diego Sanchez

After two straight losses, it’s officially Yes Cartwheel time again for Diego Sanchez (pictured). “Dream” took a highly controversial split decision win over Ross Pearson Saturday at UFC Fight Night 42.

When the dust settled on their shootout, Sanchez was handed a (27-30, 30-27, 29-28) victory.

I always love seeing 30-27 scores on a split decision. However, having 30-27 in both direction? That’s pure awesomeness. And by “awesomeness,” I mean, how can two judges sitting just inches from the live action see completely different fights?

UFC Fight Night 42 took place inside Tingley Coliseum in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
