UFC fans were stunned Saturday night when the decision was announced in the bout between reigning champion Alexander Volkanovski and former champion Max Holloway. Most fans and media believed Holloway had won but when the winner was announced it wasn’t who we all thought. Though many cried robbery, it was a closer fight and not even the worst thing we’ve seen in the Octagon in 2020.

UFC president Dana White also expressed his displeasure with the judges.

Betting site FanDuel has now stirred up the debate again with a shocking decision to refund anyone who bet on Holloway pre-fight.
