Daniel Cormier was baffled by the judges last weekend.
UFC Kansas City started off with a bang, but not exactly in a good way. The first fight of the night was contested between Joselyne Edwards and Lucie Pudilová at bantamweight. After three rounds of action, many believed Pudilová had done enough to secure a decision victory. However, two judges didn’t see it the same way as they scored it for Edwards.
‘That’s Really Bad!’
The result was highly-disputed, especially since 15 media members scored the fight for Pudilová (even with two believing she had won every round).
UFC champion-turned-commentator Cormier wasn’t a fan of the decision either.
“That’s really bad! What a bad start to the night with Judging. Holy sh*t.”

More From DC
While he didn’t exactly want to, DC would discuss the controversial result after his broadcasting duties were over and done with for the night.
“Let’s not even talk about fight number one,” Cormier said of the Edwards-Pudilová decision on his YouTube channel. “Some of the absolute worst judging I have ever seen in my entire life. It was crazy.
“I have nothing against Jocelyn… [but] I don’t know how she won that fight. She got beat. It is what it is.”
