Last Tuesday, the New Mexico Athletic Commission ruled the Chris Camozzi vs Joey Villasenor result from draw to split decision, in favor of the former. The reason for changed of decision is the scoring error seen from the judges scorecards after the fight ended on May 27 at Shark Fights in Rio Rancho, N.M.

Based on the event’s score sheet: Judge Robert Romero scored the fight 29-28 in favor of Chris Camozzi, while Jenna Vasquez scored 29-28 for Joey Villasenor. Then Mark Sanchez gave 29-29 score that made the fight to end in a draw. But in the scorecard, it actually read that the last judge gave the rounds two and three for Chris Camozzi. Hence, it should be a 29-28 for the fighter.
