As per post fight conference!
Was told to "get a beer and popcorn and watch some fights"!

UPDATE:

It's now on the first page:
http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news/446833/White-puts-judge-Howard-Hughes-out-to-pasture-at-UFN-48/


At UFC Fight Night 48, Milana Dudieva won a controversial decision over Elizabeth Phillips, and Royston Wee won a controversial decision over Yao Zhikui. Under ordinary circumstances, the event is entirely regulated by a State, provincial, or tribal regulating body. In Macau however, the UFC self regulates, and this time UFC president Dana White had the means to respond - he had word sent to judge Howard Hughes that it was time to enjoy the fights, from the stands.

“He was involved in the first fight and the second fight,” said White to John Morgan for MMAFighting. “I told the guys to go let him grab some beer and some popcorn and go sit down and start watching some fights, not judging them."

“I know a lot of people, the media included and the fans I saw on Twitter, felt that Phillips won the fight, but I thought Milana won the fight, so I disagree. But at the end of the day, who gives a s–- what I think. It’s the judges. They pick the winner, and that’s all that matters.”

“It wasn’t great tonight (of officiating). It wasn’t, and it drives me crazy. So, I can sit there and ridicule Nevada, California and all these other places we go, but nobody to point the finger at tonight except for us.”

I was just tuning in and from what I gather it was after the first 2 fights.
I am not able to confirm since I caught the card @ Wang Anying vs. Colby Covington (the 3rd fight)

As I said earlier, I missed the first 2 fights so I don't have a first hand opinion but, after looking at the scorecards, it seems clear that one judge was smoking the heefer instead of watching the fights.
From Sherdog Play-by_play:
Milana Dudieva
vs.
Elizabeth Phillips
Sherdog Scores
Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 Phillips (29-28 Phillips)
Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Phillips (29-28 Phillips)
Brian Knapp scores the round 10-9 Phillips (29-28 Phillips)
The Official Result
Milana Dudieva def. Elizabeth Phillips via Split Decision (30-27, 29-28, 28-29) R3 5:00

28-29???
Everybody had Phillips winning except the third judge.

Royston Wee
vs.
Zhuikui Yao


Sherdog Scores
Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 Yao (29-28 Yao)
Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Yao (29-28 Wee)
Brian Knapp scores the round 10-9 Yao (29-29 Draw)
The Official Result
Royston Wee def. Zhuikui Yao via Split Decision (29-28, 29-28, 27-30) R3 5:00

27-30???
Close fight could have gone either way it seems except for the 3rd judge who had the clear winner with 27-30

Dudieva vs Phillips

Anthony Dimitriou 30-27 Dudieva
Gareth Harriman 29-28 Phillips
Howard Hughes 29-28 Dudieva


Wee vs Zhikui

Howard Hughes 29-28 Wee
Charlie Keech 30-27 Zhikui
Paul Sutherland 29-28 Wee

Hughes was the only judge in both and didn't give either of the 30-27 scores.The scores I posted are from mmadecisions.

It had to be Hughes, since Dana said the judge was involved in the 2 fights. The only thing possible is mmadecisions has the scores attributed to the wrong judges.
