UFC President Dana White has expressed his disbelief and concern over a controversial judge's scorecard in the thrilling main event bout between Valentina Shevchenko and Alexa Grasso at Noche UFC.

The highly anticipated matchup between the two elite fighters ended in a surprising split draw, with one judge scoring a 10-8 round. Dana White, known for his candid remarks, didn't hold back when discussing the perplexing scorecard.

In a post-event interview at Dana White Contender Series, White passionately shared his thoughts on the judge's scoring, stating, "When I found out that one of the judges scored 10-8, I'm like, 'this guy should be f**ing investigated for this, this is the craziest sht I've ever seen in my life.'"

White's frustration was palpable as he continued, "As I started to talk to people, there's a seminar tomorrow with the athletic commission on 10-8s, so hopefully they can get this cleared up."

The UFC President emphasized the significance of accuracy in scoring, especially in title fights where so much is on the line. "There's so much at stake in a title fight, more than just money, show and win, and pay-per-view. Championships and legacies are on the line," White explained.

White also shared that officials assured him that the judge responsible for the controversial scorecard wasn't malicious but had made a critical mistake. While acknowledging that mistakes can happen, White expressed his frustration, saying, "It's unfortunate, and there's no way in hell that was a 10-8 round."

The controversy surrounding the judge's scorecard has sparked discussions within the MMA community and raised questions about the criteria used for scoring rounds. With the athletic commission hosting a seminar on 10-8 scoring, it remains to be seen how the issue will be addressed and whether changes will be implemented to prevent such discrepancies in the future.
