They screwed up the bonuses royally. Wells was BY FAR the most deserving and either the opener or Means/Dalby was a better choice for FOTN.

I think the judges kinda got  robbed Jaynes. Jaynes of a victory, 63k and a job. Jayne clearly won round 1 as dude landed all the damaging shot. Throwing weak **** and 95% of them landing at the guard win round now a days, and the takedown don’t mean **** If you’d don’t do anything  on top and get reversed. And the 3rd round he **** that boy up and clearly won the round. And side note. **** Adelaide Byrd for the 30-27 Rosa, that blind ***** should be ashamed of herself and the comeshion are a joke hiring blind idiots  to score fights

I think people mistake with judging is that they score how much someone did, not what someone does. I mean control time and strike number shouldn’t be scored, it what you do with the top control and damage that should be scored. I think it the same thing with Barcelos. Barcelos won at lest 2 rounds

@duck. Imagine betting 25k let alone on yourself all to find out that Adelaide Byrd and Chris Lee are 2 of the 3 judges in the fight. Doomed
