Quoteworthy:

"Man, it's the first time I see a guy spending all the fight defending himself and getting off there with a loss. There were a lot of critics, because Shaolin attacked all the time and there was a judge that gave 30 to 27 for the other guy...I think they missed his name on the paper, it's not possible. They can't do that, is absurd, it's not right. Even if I have to ask the help of a lawyer, I will change this outcome."

After a controversial ending to the Lyle Beerbohm vs. Vitor Ribeiro fight from last Saturday's "Heavy Artillery" card in St. Louis, Nova Uniao leader Andre Pederneiras and "Shaolin" manager Alex Davis will appeal the official decision that saw "Fancy Pants" take the split decision. Pederneiras takes exception to the 30-27 scores and is hoping for a "No Contest" in his appeal. A pretty tall order, but does anyone think he has a case?
