Don’t worry about your controversial loss at UFC 132, Matt Wiman, because Justin Bieber’s got your back. The Biebs and his gazillions of Beliebers know you beat Dennis Siver and should have left Las Vegas with your hand raised on Saturday night.
“You guys are going to laugh at this one, but me, [UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta] and Justin Bieber had scored that fight, and I actually had [Siver] winning the fight,” UFC president Dana White shared at the post-event press conference. “I gave him the first and third, and there’s no doubt who won the 2ndRound.
“I think it’s a little tough. Again, I’d have to go back and watch it, but Bieber and Lorenzo had it going the other way.”
Their 15 minute affair was highly competitive, with the bookend rounds proving the most difficult to score. Wiman dominated the middle stanza with some vicious ground-and-pound, eventually slicing a cut above Siver’s right eye with a razor-sharp elbow.
When it was all said and done, Siver was a awarded with a highly controversial (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) unanimous decision victory. Siver couldn’t have agreed more with the verdict.
“I think I won, in any case, the first and last (rounds),” Siver stated through a translator. “I win.”
