The UFC has a problem with their judges. Long-time fans are well aware of this issue and some have even called for open scoring in MMA so that the fighters are aware of the urgency they need to take or the risks they need to avoid as the fight goes on. At UFC Vegas 55 this was on full display as three of the main-card fights were razor close to the eye but that surely couldn’t be trusted in the hands of the judges. Eryk Ander’s defeat and the 30-27 card for Michel Pereira were two of the questionable calls from the judges tonight.

However, none of it could however top the insanity of the main event where, despite the lack of constant action Holly Holm seemed to be winning off her clinches, and pressure. Another person who concurred with that opinion was Ketlen Vieira’s coach, who at the end of round 3 asked his fighter to go in for the finish as she was down by three rounds, even berating her asking, “Are you here for tourism?”

Pros and fans also shared the same opinion and took their frustrations to Twitter. Here are some of the best reactions.

Daniel Cormier got off his commentating duties and got right on Twitter where he expressed disbelief at the judges getting the scorecards wrong again.

Women’s strawweight prospect Diana Belbita gave the victory to Holly Holm and thought the fight would be a 48-47

The former Lightweight champion, Charles Oliveira supported his fellow Brazillian, giving Vieira props for being “Tough”

Meanwhile, Michael Chandler was just surprised by Holm’s endurance and will to get out of the tight RNC in round 2.
