Monday Morning Analyst: Judging Stephen Thompson vs. Darren Till

At UFC Liverpool, Darren Till was awarded the unanimous decision victory over Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson. It was a controversial call, but was it the right one? In this episode of the podcast, we’ll explain why a scorecard for either fighter is justifiable, but only if the process by which it is obtained is done the right way.
