One of the three judges who were working the Lee/Murphy fight allegedly wasn’t even watching the action in the Octagon, which commentators Joe Rogan and Dominick Cruz mentioned during the broadcast (via Noah of WMMA Rankings):
“We’re looking at a judge that’s not even watching the fight…This is insane,” said Rogan.
“The judges just don’t even watch…They are looking down at the floor. Insane! It’s going to be tough for the fighters tonight to figure out how to win a decision.” Cruz added.
“This is crazy. He’s still not watching the fight!,” said Rogan.
Lee, after the event, would take to Instagram to ask anybody who attended UFC 247 to provide evidence of the judge allegedly not watching her bout against Murphy:
If anyone has video or pictures of the judge who was on his phone during the fights, please send them to me. I just think that if you’re there to judge fights, you should be watching the fight and not on your phone, therefore I think that judge should not have the opportunity to sit cage side and judge fights ever again, especially when there are plenty of other judges who were better qualified and more deserving. #ufc247
It is not known at this time as to whether or not anybody has turned in any evidence to Lee or the UFC.
