Former light heavyweight champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua faced Paul Craig in the UFC on ESPN+ 22 co-main event on Saturday in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The fight went the distance with the judges scoring the bout a split draw. Rua was left frustrated and dismayed about the scoring and let it be known during the event's post-fight press conference.

Craig was determined to rise to the occasion and took the fight to the UFC Hall of Famer. In the opening round, Rua had to weather a firestorm of strikes. In the second and third rounds, Rua spent most of the time in top position on the ground.

“I clearly knew that I had lost the first round. I won the second and third. My corner oriented me and said the same thing, and I was conscious of that. Everyone that I’ve talked to after the fight said the same thing including people from the UFC: judges, matchmakers. So I didn’t really understand the criteria that the judges used to give the victory," said Rua. "It’s something that’s not in our control, and it happens.

“It’s pretty frustrating because I can’t understand the judges criteria,” Rua added. “I think that I clearly won. He won the first round, but I won the second and third.”
I'm so fucking high.

I liked the part where Craig threw a twenty punch combination and three or four landed. Honestly shogun won the last two rounds but scoring round one a 10-8 isn't that far fetched.

Whichever judge gave the 3rd round to Craig should be smacked and investigated.

Give Shogun a title shot to smooth things over.

Shogun deserves an immediate title shot with a free juice pass and 5 million base pay.
