Ricky Simon on UFC Jacksonville decision: ‘I thought I was about to get robbed’

Ricky Simon was able to get back in the win column but it didn’t happen without some drama.

Simon entered his UFC Jacksonville bout with Ray Borg after losing back-to-back fights to Urijah Faber and Rob Font. The majority of fans and media members who watched the fight on Wednesday night scored it for Simon, but Bruce Buffer read the scorecards and announced that one of the judges had scored it for Borg. Ultimately, it worked out the way it was supposed to.

Check out this exclusive interview with the 27-year-old Simon as he recapped the win, the unusual fight week experience, what was being said throughout the fight, how we felt when the cards were being read, the real story behind shaving off his mullet, Merab Dvalishvili’s call for a rematch, and more.
