An inside-the-cage judge is better than double duty as ref/judge.
They could give Rickson one vote, the audience one vote, and let BJM break any ties.
I love the idea of judging the fight as a whole again.
Does anyone know if it haz Yellow cardz?
Havent yet heard anything about yellow cards and they were not mentioned so I would assume not.
A fourth person might make it a bit crowded inside the cage but I do like the idea.
I still think it gives the promoter too much influence, a conflict of interests, if you will. The promoter wants to create the more "sell'able" fights (right Zuffa?) so if it is a close fight / near a draw, it just seems it would seem almost a guarantee the promoter would score it for the guy he wants to see in the next 'big' fight.
