Bruce Buffer botches majority draw announcement

Bruce Buffer

UFC ring announcer Bruce Buffer had himself a Steve Harvey moment on Saturday night.

Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson had a close fight at UFC 205 that went the distance. Two judges scored the fight 47-47, while the third had it 48-47 in favor of Woodley.

Two of the three judges scoring the fight a draw would mean the outcome is a majority draw. However, when announcing the results in the octagon, Buffer called it a split decision win for Woodley.

Woodley was being interviewed by Joe Rogan as the fight winner until the interview was interrupted and Rogan was informed the results meant there was a majority draw.

As the defending champion, Woodley retained the title belt, but he did not win the fight as Buffer said — the result was a draw.
