George Roop opened UFC 158 as the first Facebook fight and took a unanimous decision opposite Reuben Duran. As for the unanimous decision, Roop wasn’t certain that should have been the case.
“I’m not going to say I lost the fight,” said Roop to MMA Fighting. “I would have even called it a draw. I thought it was a very close fight. I felt like I did more damage. I wasn’t happy with my performance.”
The first round Roop gave to Duran, but felt he won the third. He called the second round as the deciding factor and a close one to decide on.
Roop took the fight as a bantamweight. Duran is now 1-3 for the promotion and has a pair of losses.
The card was this past Saturday and came from the Bell Centre in Canada.
