Although most of Vettori’s strikes came from leg kicks while Dolidze closed the fight as a -650 favourite on Las Vegas betting lines.

Taking to Twitter in their masses, disgruntled fans voiced their displeasure. “How tf did Vettori win that!?!,” wrote @JSanchezFN. “No clue. I had Dolidze that whole fight,” replied @ninernate49.

Meanwhile, journalist Shaheen Al-Shatti, added: “Wow, I had that one 29-28 Dolidze. Thought he pulled it off. Very close fight, 29-28 Vettori is understandable. But 30-27 Vettori? Come on now. That’s certainly a scorecard. #UFC286.”
