We had Xiaonan winning the first round but, in fairness to the judges, the second really was too close to call. In the end only one of them scored it for the Chinese fighter.
That meant it was the Brazilian who left with a split decision win. The fact that she played her part in a highly entertaining fight will be scant consolation to Xiaonan who suffers her second straight UFC loss.
How did you score the fight? Does Xioanan have a point when she says the first two rounds should have gone her way?
