NMAC overturns Camozzi-Villasenor

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Held on May 27 at Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, N.M., the middleweight contest was originally announced to be a split draw after three rounds. Judge Robert Romero scored the bout 29-28 in favor of Camozzi, while Jenna Vasquez had it 29-28 in favor of Villasenor. Mark Sanchez’s scorecard read 29-29.

It was Sanchez’s scorecard which would later come into question, and on Tuesday Sherdog.com learned that the New Mexico Athletic Commission voted unanimously to overturn the original ruling and award Camozzi a split-decision victory.

The news came as a disappointment to Villasenor.

“I think [the commission] made an error, I think they [needed] to confirm that it was an error, and I think that it needs to be decided to be a no-contest or stand where it is,” said the Jackson’s MMA product. “I don’t think there should be a winner or loser in this event, even though I do feel like I won the fight.”
