MMA Twitter Reacts To Shane Burgos Edging Out Charles Jourdain

One of the most anticipated bouts of UFC Long Island came down to a majority decision when Shane Burgos got the nod from two judges in his fight with Charles Jourdain.

Burgos started strong when he managed to take Jourdain’s back, but “Hurricane” eventually ended up eating strikes from the Canadian in what was the closest round of the fight. Burgos took the second round quite clearly with his grappling control, while Jourdain came out fast in the third and battered Burgos for his most dominant round of the fight.

A case could be made for 10-8 scores for each fighter in rounds 2 and 3, and a pair of 29-28 scorecards plus a 28-28 score left Shane Burgos with the majority decision victory.

The bout ended up being one of the most exciting contests of UFC Long Island, and MMA Twitter reacted to both the action and the scorecards.

Burgos has now won his last 2 bouts, which is his first win streak since a 2-fight skid where he lost to Josh Emmett and Edson Barboza.
