Carla Esparza is not happy with the way the judges scored her fight against Claudia Gadelha at this past Saturday night’s UFC 225 event.
Esparza (13-5) lost a controversial split decision to Gadelha, prompting the audience to fill the arena with boos. ‘The Cookie Monster’ believes she was the true winner and let her feelings be known post-fight.
“I feel I won the fight. I landed way more than [Claudia] and she didn’t do any damage to me when she had control. At the end of the day, you can’t leave these things to the judges to decide…” she told MMA Fighting.
The former UFC strawweight champ went on to release an additional statement for the fans.
“Didn’t get the win tonight, lost a split. It’s part of the sport. Thank you so much to my teammates, friends, & fans for the support, I wouldn’t be here without you!” she said.
