Rousimar Palhares’ split-decision loss to Shamil Amirov at Fight Nights Global 73 has been overturned to a draw.
Fight Nights Global President Kamil Gadzhiev said the initial result – announced without scores at the Sept. 4 event – was changed after the bout was reviewed by the Russian MMA Union.
“If fighters are not happy with the decision, fighters themselves, or their management, send an official protest letter to the Russian MMA Union,” Gadzhiev today told MMAjunkie. “They invite three new judges, they watch again, and they can change the decision. Sometimes, they change the decision.”
