Bloody Elbow Exclusive: Judges Scorecards for Slice/Thompson

Just got a call from BE editor in chief Luke Thomas in Newark at the Elite SC event.
Luke got his hands on the judges scorecards and here's how they had it scored:

All three judges scored the first round 10-9 for James Thompson.

But in the 2nd round it got weird as Bittencourt scored it 10-9 Thompson, Crosby scored it 10-8 Thompson and Colon gave it to Kimbo, 10-9.

Something rotten in Newark ladies and gentlemen.

As Luke Thomas said to me on the phone just now, "The UFC gets the best fighters they can and lets the chips fall where they may. Shaw tried to control the outcomes and it blew up in his face. And you know what, I'm glad."

Couldn't agree more.

We may criticize Dana White and Zuffa here at BE, but its clear they have the best product in MMA.

The difference in quality between UFC 84 and EliteXC was dramatic. UFC 84 was far and away the better event.
