Somebody better call the police, because Michael Johnson (pictured) got robbed. In perhaps the most dubious decision of 2015, Johnson lost a split decision to Beneil Dariush on Saturday at UFC Fight Night 73.

It appeared as though Johnson did more than enough to leave the cage with his hand raised, but two of the three judges were watching a completely different fight.

When the scores were read, Johnson found himself on the wrong end of a (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) split decision verdict.

If you thought Johnson was shocked, the look on Dariush’s face that he had actually won was even more surprising. UFC president Dana White didn’t hold back, either.

“OMFG!!!!!!!!! That is HORRIBLE!!! That why u can’t leave it to these judges!!!!!!!” White posted via Twitter.

UFC Fight Night 73 took place inside Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
