DFW thinks Brilz won, Nouiera disagrees

by Jeff Cain | source: mmaweekly.com

A controversial decision occurred in the UFC 114 light heavyweight match-up between Jason Brilz and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira with “Li’l Nog” coming away with a split decision victory.

UFC president Dana White did not agree with the decision.

"I thought Brilz won the fight. I'm always disagreeing with the judges,” White commented at the post-fight press conference.

“I just need to shut up, I'm not a judge, and I said earlier to these guys that Brilz had the opportunity to knock Li’l Nog out at the end of that second round. He hit him with like three punches in a row and Nog was out on his feet, and Brilz stopped punching him and there was like 20 seconds left in the round. You left it in the hands of the judges."

The implication is, you left it in the hands of incompetent judges, or it wouldn’t be a constantly uttered term in the sport at all.

Nogueira disagreed with White’s assessment and felt he rightfully was victorious.

“Yeah, I think I won the fight,” Nogueira told the media.

“We made a very, very close fight, but I’m very confident that I won this fight, but he’s proved he’s a good guy."

"That kid is back on the escalator again!"Dunno why it reminded me of that.On topic, I gave it to Brilz, but it was close enough that I don't think it is a huge controversy.

 You guys are all wrong.  According to CRE (an authority on all aspects of MMA), the fight was an insult to MMA fans as Brilz couldn't even be a decent sparring partner for Noguira. http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/mma.cfm?go=forum_framed.frame&thread=1636115&page=1
