It wouldn't surprise me one bit if refs/judges make bets by proxy, considering some of the atrocious decisions/judging from time to time.

Ding ding ding ding. And we have a winner. If the ufc fails, their jobs are in jeopardy. Its that easy. What's best for the company is best for them too. That's also partially why in close (and sometimes not so close fights) the favorite (usually who the ufc wants to win) wins.

I think the problem is some of them aren't fans. Some of them don't even really like MMA and they have a very biased viewpoint in regards to whatever martial art they come from.

Not just Japanese fighters but any fighter of Asian ethnicity pretty much has to get a finish in order to get a victory in the states or Brazil, even then they will probably look for a DQ. Sad to see that this great sport has such blatantly biased people behind it.
