The Bellator CEO revealed that he scored the Rampage-King Mo main event 19-19 heading into the third round but that the third round was the one that was tough to score and would require a second viewing.
"I scored it the way the judges scored it," Rebney said following the event. "I thought [Lawal] convincingly won the first and ‘Rampage' convincingly won the second, and I thought, look, you had to watch the third real close. There were some takedowns. It's a tough one to call, but I scored it the way the judges scored it."
Rebney also confirmed that he was had no issues with the result of the evening's co-main event between Michael Chandler and Will Brooks. The recent lightweight tournament winner won a controversial split decision which was scored 48-46, 47-48, 48-47 in his favour and earned him the interim lightweight title.
"I've got to look again at the tape. Sometimes, I get rolling too much with the microphone in front of me, but from what I saw, and I went back to the truck watching it, I think both decisions were good decisions. But they were wickedly close fights, and that's what world-class fighters will give you."
