Alexa Grasso remains the UFC’s women’s flyweight champion following Noche UFC, but the fighter needed scoring that some are scrutinizing to retain the belt.

Grasso battled former longtime champ, Valentina Shevchenko in the main event, in what was a back-and-forth bout. After five rounds, each woman was awarded the bout with scores of 48-47. But, one judge ruled the fight a draw, by surprisingly, scoring the fifth round 10-8 for Grasso.

Shevchenko lost the title to Grasso in March, who submitted her in round four at UFC 285.

Here are the complete results for the card, which took place in Las Vegas, Nevada.
