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 ufc events between australia 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.
Actually, we are going to appeal. We are going to ask that the result be changed from split to unanimous on a question of principle
The judge that gave the fight to Jumeau shouldnt be judging. Who are these people? How do they get these positions? They are effecting these hard working athletes lives and careers! It keeps on happening!
The appeal will go through the Victoria Sport and Recreation Board, who oversaw the event in Melbourne, australia on Saturday night.
