UFC Fight Night 32 results: Cezar Ferreira vs. Daniel Sarafian Fight Metric report

Jason da Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Well, this is interesting.

In the co-main event of tonight's (Sat., Nov. 9, 2013) UFC Fight Night 32: "Belfort vs. Henderson" card from the Goiania Arena in Goiania, Brazil, airing on Fox Sports 1, Ultimate Fighter: Brazil season 1 winner Cezar Ferreira proved he deserved the honor by dispatching of Daniel Sarafian, the man he would have faced in the finals had it not been for injury.

Or did he?

After three hard fought rounds, the judges scorecards were uneven. Two judges had it for Ferreira by scores of 29-28 and 30-28 while one had it the other way, 30-27 in favor of Sarafian.

Wait ... what?!?

That's a pretty big disparity in scores. With that in mind, let's take a look at the Fight Metric report (click here to get the retailed breakdown):

Rounds 1 and 2 are disputable while round three seems to heavily favor Ferreira, if only due to volume. Sure, the two landed just three significant strikes apiece but Ferreira accounted for 32 total strikes, two takedowns, and three passes.

That's a 10-9 in my book.

The other two aren't as easy to figure out, and I'll leave it up to you Maniacs to determine whether or not the judges made the right decision in this one.
