Fighter vs. Writer: Matt Brown Rips Judge in Cory Sandhagen vs. Marlon Vera, Calls His Scorecard ‘Absolutely F****** Ludicrous’
Manage episode 359166977 series 1805230
On the latest episode of The Fighter vs. The Writer, Matt Brown and Damon Martin discuss the scoring in the Cory Sandhagen vs. Marlon “Chito” Vera fight as well as David Benavidez’s big win and what Conor McGregor’s career trajectory could have been if he didn’t take the Floyd Mayweather fight.
Following UFC San Antonio on Saturday night, we’ll talk about Sandhagen’s big win as he took another step forward towards title contention with a potential matchup looming against Merab Dvalishvili.
Of course, the scoring in Sandhagen’s split decision win will also take center stage after one judge somehow gave Vera three rounds, which Brown calls arguably the “biggest bulls***” scorecard in the history of the sport.
We’ll also talk about David Benavidez picking up a statement win over Caleb Plant and the chances that he takes out “Canelo” Alvarez in his next fight. In fact, is Alvarez on the downside of his career at this point?
Plus we’ll discuss what would have happened to Conor McGregor if he would have just continued fighting in MMA after he demolished Eddie Alvarez back in 2016. Is it possibly he could have beaten Khabib Nurmagomedov and cemented himself as one of the greatest fighters of all time?
All this and much more on the latest episode of The Fighter vs. The Writer with Matt Brown and Damon Martin.
