This post is not about my love for Nick Diaz and the justice being served with him regaining his title shot. It is not a warm memory about the greatness that was Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic. It also isn’t going to make any claims that BJ Penn will return to the cage.
There was a 10-10 round scored by a judge that night. In the Cheick Kongo / Matt Mitrione fight, one brave judge scored the contest 30-28.
That on any other night, would’ve been groundbreaking news. Not on this night, it got lost in a sea of far too much more "important" news.
I can’t remember a fight when a 10-10 round had ever been scored. Has it ever happened in the modern UFC era? Where was this guy in the BJ Penn / Jon Fitch fight?
Whoever he is, he should be given a judging of the night bonus or something. He is the true star of UFC 137.
