Cagewriter's Elias Cepeda, asked Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) executive director Keith Kizer if there was a judging crisis in Nevada, Kizer was unqequivocal.
"No," he explained.
"I don’t see controversy in the GSP-Hendricks decision. The media seems split on who won. The LA times scored it for GSP. All seemed to agree that Hendricks won rounds two and four and that St. Pierre won three and five. The first round could have gone either way."
"Even if you disagreed with the scoring, how is that something to criticize the commission for?"
"Before the fight, both the St. Pierre and Hendricks camps were fine with the proposed judges... [Vice President of Regulatory Affairs and former NSAC executive director] Marc Ratner and Dana White have also told me that they believe Sal D'Mato and Tony Weeks were two of the best judges, if not the best, in MMA. You can tell they feel that way by where the UFC has taken them."
Kizer also addressed White's frustration leading to less shows in Las Vegas.
"I don’t think it's likely," said Kizer. "I don’t think its what he meant but in any case, we are a public agency and so we are happy to hear everyone's comments and input."
