Dana White discusses controversial UFC 247 main event: ‘The scoring was all over the map’

UFC President Dana White knows a lot of folks are talking about the scoring of the UFC 247 main event, and he doesn’t expect the controversy to die down anytime soon.

Jon Jones successfully defended his light heavyweight title against Dominick Reyes in Saturday’s main event at Toyota Center in Houston, but the unanimous decision nod wasn’t convincing to a vocal portion of the crowd who booed the judges’ call and the social media reaction was divisive, to say the least.

What made the result even more stunning was the lone 49-46 score submitted by judge Joe Solis, a verdict that seemed to ignore the success Reyes had putting the pressure on the champion early in the fight.
