#1 ranked former UFC welterweight title contender Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson returned to the cage tonight to face the overweight prospect Darren Till in Till’s hometown of Liverpool England.
USADA should test these judges ?? #UFCLiverpool

Hmmmm…. that doesn't seem like the right decision.

Till initially weighed in at 173 pounds and was given an extra hour and he came back at 173 and 1/2 pounds this time.
Really close fight, no one was robbed. But the hometown crowd noise for Till influenced the scoring IMO. @ufc

Stats clearly Wonder Boy out struck Till… Every round! Please explain how he won a unanimous decision? I’ll wait… ? https://t.co/GTHNjzpuF1

Wonderboy agreed to face him for 30% of his purse and Till had to make 188 pounds before stepping on the bus to the arena.
Wonderboy flew to a 25-year-old's backyard who was ranked lower than him, watched him miss weight, beat him (IMO), watched the decision go (unanimously) against him, and managed to smile as it happened. Man.

Till weighed in at 187 and the fight went on in a close fight that fans, media, and analyst all thought Wonderboy won the match. Immediately after the entire UFC tonight panel on Fox went off on how horrible the decision was.
One shocking detail was released, all 3 of the Judges were born and raised in England. Here are the media scores and the UFC tonight segment below:
