Lucie Pudilova had her second fight last night after returning to the UFC. Her opponent was Joselyne Edwards and the Czech fighter went into the duel as a slight favourite. But she has to bite a very bitter and controversial loss.
Her three fight winning streak is over. Lucie Pudilova has her second fight after returning to the best organization in the world and she has to swallow a very unpleasant pill in the form of a controversial loss.
She faced Joselyne Edwards and went into the match as the favourite. She was more dominant from the start, she was making the match. She was hitting her opponent, even took her to the ground in the first round and managed to control her there for a while.
The second round was Pudilova’s night as she not only landed more punches, but again delivered a takedown and Edwards pulled the short end of the rope. The third round was fairly even, but was the only one where you could really say the Panamanian fighter had the upper hand.
When it came to announcing the results, it was more or less expected that Pudilova would win narrowly. But it didn’t happen. Only one judge saw her win, the other two saw the closest possible win for her opponent.
Immediately after the announcement of the winner, whistling started in the hall, the fans did not like that the Czech fighter did not raise her hands above her head.
And the criticism didn’t stay only in the hall. It also spread to social networks, where words like theft and manipulation started to be used under the organization’s posts. And not in small amounts.
For example, the legendary Daniel Cormier defended the Czech fighter, calling the decision very bad. Considering that it was the first fight of the tournament, he could talk about a very bad start of the evening.
