Dhiego Lima earned a split decision win over Luke Jumeau at UFC 243, but the veteran fighter and his manager are actually planning to file an appeal.

While Lima appeared to be the clear-cut victor after three rounds, judge Garth Harriman actually scored the fight 29-28 in favor of Jumeau. Harriman has recently judged three events between and China.

Davis was obviously happy that Lima got the win he deserved but ultimately he still feels that the judges scoring the fight should be held accountable even if the result went the right way.

The appeal will go through the Victoria Sport and Recreation Board, who oversaw the event in Melbourne, on Saturday night.
