First of all people don't like judges in any sport, it isn't just MMA.

Second of all, you can't get 10 people on these forums to even agree what the rules for an MMA fight should be.

Just look at these forums, no one ever agrees who won rounds or fights. That is at least 50% of what is discussed on these forums. Believing there will one day be a world where everyone is going to watch the same fight and agree who won each round is fantasyland stuff.

Georges St-Pierre had 14 UFC title bouts;

59% of the fights in his entire professional career have been for a title (16 title fights out of 27 total fights);

Better than both Fedor and Andy

The UFC will probably go bankrupt if they don't hold fight in Nevada. You're delusional.

Sounds like a good idea except for these few little problems:
~ All of these judges work in other states as well.
~ Other athletic commissions in the US model their training and regulations on Nevada's.
~ The few states that don't follow the NV model (FL, TX) have much, much worse judging.
~ The UFC is based in Las Vegas and having fights there is a huge draw for the owners' casinos.
~ When the UFC goes to Brazil or Japan and there's no athletic commission and they can select any judges they want, they freely choose to bring the same ones who judged GSP-Hendricks.
~ Boycotting Nevada wouldn't create any incentive to fix judging.
But yeah, other than that, sounds good.
