LAS VEGAS — There will be no rematch between Diego Sanchez and Ross Pearson.

UFC president Dana White called Sanchez’s controversial split decision over Pearson last weekend “insanity” and said the promotion will move forward as if Pearson won the fight.

The lightweight bout, which took place in Sanchez’s hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Saturday, was widely denounced as one of the worst decisions in UFC history.

Judges Jeff Collins and Chris Tellez each scored the bout for Sanchez, 30-27 and 29-28, respectively. Judge Marcos Rosales had it 30-27 in Pearson’s favor, along with an overwhelming majority of media.

White was not in attendance, but viewed the fight from his vacation home in Bangor, Maine.
