The judges' scorecards in Daron Cruickshank's split decision victory over Yves Edwards on Saturday night raised a few eyebrows amongst those watching the fight.

Two judges scored the fight 30-27 in favour of Cruickshank, yet the dissenting judge had Edwards sweeping all three rounds.

Not only was it the second decision of the evening in which the losing fighter garnered a 30-27 scorecard, but it was also only the fourth time in UFC history that all three judges submitted 30-27 scorecards for a split decision.
