Welcome to “Judges Gonna Judge,” where our MMA Junkie staff panel revisits the most controversial decision that occurred over the weekend.

This week, we take a look at Angela Hill vs. Amanda Lemos, a main card bout at UFC Fight Night 199 which took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

The official end result of this back-and-forth battle was a split decision, in which two judges scored the bout in favor of Lemos. No judge saw the fight the same, in fact, all three only agreed on scoring the first for Lemos. Judge Junichiro Kamijo scored the fight 29-28 in favor of Lemos. Michael Bell was the lone judge who saw the fight for Hill with a score of 29-28. Douglas Crosby turned in the most controversial card of the three, scoring every round for Lemos, turning in a 30-27 score.

Was this a robbery? Does the 30-27 for Lemos make any sense?

MMA Junkie’s Matthew Wells, Dan Tom, and Danny Segura put on their judging hats and break the fight down round by round.
