Georges successfully defended his UFC welterweight title for a ninth time on Nov. 16, defeating his opponent by split decision. But did the judges make the right call? The president of the UFC doesn’t think so!

As if two grown men brutally punching and kicking each other wasn’t dramatic enough, UFC 167 had some added controversy when Georges St-Pierre defeated challenger Johny Hendricks for the UFC welterweight title in a split decision that many did not agree with.

Georges St-Pierre Wins Controversial UFC Match

Johny fought a valiant fight, landing big punches on Georges all night, and most who watched the fight assumed he would be named the winner. But the sold-out crowd at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. were stunned when the five-round fight was scored 48-47 in Georges’ favor.

The fans booed loudly and Johny dropped to his knees stunned, but no one was more vocal about the controversial split decision than UFC president Dana White.

Dana said he was “blown away” by the decision, adding, “Georges knew he lost, his corner knew he lost, Johny knew he won, and his corner knew he won.” Dana continued to rail against the Nevada athletic commission in a post-bout interview with Fox Sports. “Nevada is a very scary place,” he said. “This is the worst commission on the planet… Boxing was so corrupt for many years that the government had to come in and regulate it, but there’s some real issues here in Nevada that need to be fixed.”

You have to feel bad for Johny, who could practically taste the title belt before it was unfairly ripped away from him. “I thought I clearly won the fight,” Johny said after the fight. “I just want the belt. I need to get that. I thought I got it tonight, but I guess I didn’t.”

As for Georges, after “winning” the match, he announced that he was going to hang up his gloves for a little bit and take a break from the sport. Talk about going out on top and in the middle of a ton of controversy!

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Who deserved to win UFC 167?

George won that fight. He won the first round, the 3rd round and the 5th round. His strike rate was also higher than Hendricks 101 to 85, he also took henricks to the ground more often. Now try and tell me GSP lost. He may have been cut up more, but damage does not determine a winner.

Dana White is just dirty at his cash cow …i mean GSP retired without a rematch for henricks. GSP did the right thing, he has retired a 9x undisputed champion now!

GSP FOREVER!!!!!
