AJ Agazarm Does Unwanted Post-Fight Media Scrum, Claims Bias At Bellator 243


AJ Agazarm calls foul play after losing a unanimous decision loss to rival Cris Lencioni on the preliminary card of Bellator 243.

The loss makes for Agazarm's second professional defeat and dropped his overall record to 3-2. The fighter, who was not required to a post-fight media scrum due to losing, insisted on taking part. He used the opportunity to accuse a judge of bias scoring.

“The first thing that I noted is that there was a judge that shouldn’t have been there, judging the fight,” Agazarm said (via Dave Doyle & Nolan King of MMA Junkie). “Douglas Crosby, he’s had relationships with me, he’s had relationships with my opponent, he’s definitely not impartial. I don’t know what business he had being on the side and judging that fight. That should be immediately examined and the fight should be a draw.”

Crosby was one of the three judges for the Agazarm/Lencioni bout and he was the only judge who scored a round in favor of Agazarm.

Agazarm also nailed Lencioni with an illegal headbutt in the first round of their fight, but Agazarm says that wasn’t his fault either.

“He talked about a controversial headbutt, he lifted me up and slammed my head, it was an unintentional, and it made him take control of the first and second rounds,” said Agazarm.

Mohegan Tribal Department of Athletic Regulation head Mike Mazzulli did give Agazarm an earful after the bout for the fighters antics. Further disciplinary action could be taken.
