Jessica Eye’s controversial split-decision win over Sarah Kaufman overturned to a No Decision by Texas Athletic Commission



In most eyes, Canadian Sarah Kaufman looked to have won her UFC 166 bout against UFC newcomer Jessica Eye last October in Houston, Texas.

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation has changed the split decision result (originally favoring Eye) to a “no decision,” according to a report from Sherdog.com.  No explanation was given except for the fact that there may have been an error in the judging.

Nothing has been announced official but here are some stats via Fight Metric:

    Najera scored the third round in favor of Eye, the one round that without question should have gone Kaufman’s way. This was Najera’s first time judging a major MMA event.

    Awarding the third to Eye is completely indefensible. She was outworked and nearly put to sleep when Kaufman finally started to land from range.

    She landed twice as many strikes and had Eye rocked. Under the Unified Rules of MMA, there’s just no way to explain how Eye could have been award the round.

Im sure we will learn the result of why it was over turned and in the meantime Sarah Kaufman’s record will revert back to 16-2.  On a side note, Kaufman denies filing any type of complaint about the decision loss.
