Mizuto Hirota and Teruto Ishihara fought to a draw Saturday night in the finals of “Road to UFC: Japan” at UFC Fight Night 75.

The fighters and fans in attendance inside the Saitama Super Arena were stunned, and UFC president Dana White had the same reaction:

The bout was a featherweight final from the first season of the show that aired in Japan and featured Roy Nelson and Josh Barnett as coaches.

It was announced later during the card that White told officials both fighters would be given contracts similar to those awarded to Ultimate Fighter winners.
