The featured fight on UFC Fight Pass for UFC Fight Night Pittsburgh was Ashlee Evans-Smith and Marion Reneau. Renau wass coming off of a decision loss to current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm, and Evans-Smith was coming off a nine-month suspension for the use of a diuretic in her debut loss against Raquel Pennington at UFC 181.
The fight between Evans-Smith and Renau was a close fight, and depending on how you score the second and third rounds, could have gone either way. The issue at hand is how the first round was scored. Two judges scored the first round for Evans-Smith, even though Reneau dropped her and almost locked in a guillotine. One judge who scored the fight for Evans-Smith scored the fight 29-27. This score came about after failing to add the three numbers together properly.
