On March 2, 2013, fans of the Ultimate Fighting Championship in the Inland Empire got to see UFC on Fuel TV 8. In one of the fights in the main event card, Takanori Gomi faced Diego Sanchez in a match that ended with a controversial decision. According to every single scorecard that was scored by the media listed in mmadecisions.com, Gomi beat Sanchez. Unfortunately, two of three judges did a poor job of judging and gave the fight to Sanchez, who not only got a gift decision but also failed to make weight for the fight.
In the online radio show Beatdown After the Bell on the website sherdog.com, Sam Genovese said, "I had 30-27 Gomi. I had him winning every round...I think the only thing that Diego beat Gomi in was grunting."
On the show, TJ De Santis said, "I agree with you [Sam Genovese]."
De Santis added, "The media scores [on mmadecisions.com] were all for Takanori Gomi."
Below is a list of the media on mmadecisions.com that scored the fight for Gomi.
