Mike Pierce’s split decision victory over Carlos Eduardo Rocha at UFC on FX: Johnson vs. McCall should have actually been announced as an unanimous decision. MMAjunkie.com confirmed the change in ruling recently.
The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation changed the decision after figuring out a card read in favor of Rocha should have read for Pierce.
“When they read 30-27 for Rocha, I was like, ‘What the (expletive)?’ Great, here we go again,” Pierce said. “I was unaware that the judge scored it for the wrong corner, nor was I told. Judges have had a bad rap for a while now, and it’s instances like this that don’t help their case any.”
Pierce is 14-5 in his MMA career, and 6-3 inside the UFC Octagon.
