Henri Cejudo is baffled by the referees who scored the UFC 282 co-main event in favor of Ami Pemblett.
Pemblett (20-3 MMA, 4-0 UFC) defeated Jared Gordon (19-6 MMA, 7-5 UFC) via unanimous decision last Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in a decision that surprised Gordon and most of the others.
Cejudo explained that Gordon has always found a home for his left hand and believes that judges show favoritism when scoring fights. He cited the dismissal decision, taken by Sean O’Malley Winning Peter Yan at UFC 280 as a similar example.
“Justie Buddy – I don’t know what to say,” Cejudo said of his book. YouTube channel. “A lot of these guys are just delusional because they think they’re better than they really are. He lost that battle. I think he needs to see him again, or maybe I should see him again, but I think the whole world saw it as one of the worst decisions ever.” »
Talk about a complete trip. It has nothing to do with Buddy. It’s about the judges. … It’s not a popularity contest. First they did it with Sean O’Malley vs. Peter Yan. ”
Pimblett is now 4-0 in the UFC, but Cejudo thinks his performance against Gordon shows he’s not ready to enter the competition just yet.
“Elijah Topuria will definitely hurt him,” Cejudo said. “He’s going to have big problems. But I don’t think Buddy wants to do it, and I don’t think the UFC wants to do it. Or they might want to after seeing this damn performance. They might just say, ‘Hey, you know what?’ We can take our money and invest it with Ilia Topuria.
“It’s a problem for the sport to take on a guy – he’s not even a top fighter and he’s getting a co-main event. It’s like they’re really trying to push someone too, premature or (who) doesn’t. All the potential, all the talent. »
