UFC controversy

Carlos Hernandez showcased his dominance against Denys Bondar at UFC Vegas 75, nearly securing a knockout victory in the final seconds. After overwhelming his opponent for almost 15 minutes, Hernandez executed a takedown that seemed to push Bondar to the brink of defeat. With relentless force, he unleashed a barrage of elbows upon a bloodied and battered Bondar, prompting referee Jerin Valel to intervene and stop the fight with just one second remaining.

However, the excitement was short-lived as the takedown underwent review, and the outcome of Hernandez’s first UFC finish was unexpectedly altered. The ruling declared it a clash of heads instead, casting doubt on the validity of the knockout.

Fortunately for Hernandez, the fight proceeded to the scorecards. To his relief, all three judges awarded him the victory, unanimously recognizing his dominance throughout the bout. Two judges scored all three rounds in favor of Hernandez, while the third judge scored it 29-28 in his favor.

On the other hand, Bondar’s UFC journey faced another setback, as he now stands at 0-2 following a 16-month hiatus between his appearances inside the octagon.
