Alexander Shlemenko’s team to file formal protest over Gegard Mousasi loss
Following a hotly contested unanimous decision loss to Gegard Mousasi at Bellator 185, Alexander Shlemenko and his team have issued a formal protest to the Association of Boxing Commissions and the Mohegan Department of Athletic Regulation seeking to have the result of the bout reviewed and possibly overturned. On Thursday, Shlemenko’s manager Alexei Zhernakov sent a copy of the protest to MMA Fighting in which he points out several issues with the judges’ decision, specifically regarding the second and third rounds of the Oct. 20 main event, which took place in Uncasville, Conn. He argues that round two saw Shlemenko do the majority of the damage while Mousasi could only offer ineffective grappling, and that the final frame could feasibly have been scored a 10-8 in favor of Shlemenko.
