Following his win at UFC 119 over Evan Dunham, Sean Sherk was booed by the crowd and Indianapolis as they believed Dunham had picked up the win in what was a razor thing split decision.
Sherk talked about the win post fight and gave his thoughts on the fan reaction:
“I knew the fight was close. I think I had the first round pretty decisive. The second round was close. And the third round, I would give that to Dunham. So it depends on what the judges are watching. Anytime you go to a judges decision you're at their mercy…. We were throwing down out there — he was hitting me hard, I was hitting him hard, he was bleeding all over the place. It had to be exciting. If I was a fan I would have had a good time, so I don't know why [the fans] are booing me. We went out there and threw down. We left our hearts out there. There was nothing left inside that Octagon.”
