Although the UFC hosted an action-packed event on Saturday with UFC Fight Night 116, a large section of the combat sport world’s attention was locked on the anticipated boxing match between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (49-1-2) and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (37-0-1).

The fight itself, which took place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, was competition, intense and largely lived up to the hype. But then the scorecards announcing a split draw were read, and once again an example of the chaotic and controversial nature of leaving a fight in the hands of the judges was provided.

Although some were content with the result because it perfectly set up a rematch, the majority of the responses from MMA world were negative. Check below for the top Twitter reactions to the Canelo vs. GGG decision.
