Last night’s The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale left a bad taste in the mouths of many due to the controversy surrounding the decision of the Nam Phan – Leonard Garcia bout.
Garcia earned a stunning and controversial split-decision victory over Nam Phan at last night’s event, in a bout that most believe should have clearly went to Phan. The FightMetric report showed a clear win for Phan, although the judges didn’t see it that way.
Judge Junichiro Kamijo was the only judge to score the fight for Phan, giving him all three rounds. Judges Adelaide Byrd and Tony Weeks had rounds one and three for Garcia and round two for Phan.
