"The 30-27 score is outrageous," White said. "It's insane."......."Believe me, you're preaching to the choir here," White said. "There's nothing worse than when guys go out and train hard for a fight and lose fights that they won. It drives me nuts."
but then he follows up with sayin:
"I don't know what to say," White admitted. "If everyone wants to call the (Nevada State) Athletic Commission and talk to (executive director) Keith Kizer – he's the guy you have to ask questions to, not me. ... The reality is you guys have to call Keith Kizer. Call Keith Kizer and asked him what we can to do to fix this judging and scoring. |
"These athletic commissions need to start looking at this and figuring out what they're going to do. It's wrong."
He hates judging just as much as every fan, but he knows there is 'nothing he can do'....which is kind of a lie....especially at UFC events being held in other countries that don't have commissions and they bring their own ref's and judges. But I am sure he isn't in charge of selecting his judges, probably leaves it up to someone else.
I find most of the guys are pretty unimpressive. Wish Rich Attonito was still in it....hopefully he is healed up soon and looks like he is slated to fight at the finale.
I have been going for Jaime Yager and Kyle Noke. I have really been unimpressed by how many unanimous decisions there have been this season. In episodes 2 to 7 there were only 2 finishes....a TKO and a sub (and an illegal knee I guess)
