Having a 49-46 judge has actually lessened my ufc fandom.

    After over 10+ years of watching MMA, I woke up this morning with a feeling ive never felt before.

    If you watch that fight and you give jon 49-46, you are without a shadow of a doubt getting paid by somebody. These fights are not on the up-and-up. If you think a person that is intelligent enough to make it all the way to a UFC-judging postion (you cant be a dummy) and then watch that fight and give jones 49.....then you are unwise or naive.

    The UFC thinks that if they keep their dominant champion in place that it will be better for business....but with the entire world watching and being like "wtf" at the judges .....it lessens everyones perception of the legitimacy of the sport. Now we have to live with the next several years of jones playing patty-cake with his length and using range to a decision win. The Santos fight showed us that too.

    Thank god I didnt pay for that ppv....nor will I ever pay for one of Jones' cards again.

    Reyes is the LHW champ imo.
    1,2.3.....
    if it was a 3 round fight there would be no question. ....... but with these judges jons STILL probably would have won.

    LOL but you were ok with the GSP/ Hendricks robbery?


    "I woke up this morning with a feeling ive never felt before...."

    LMAO stop being so dramatic and realize what's really going on. You have biases towards Jones for whatever reason, and it's not allowing you to think objectively.

    If this fight bothered you that much, but the GSP/Hendricks fight didn't, thats how you know you're just a blind hater looking for excuses to hate him.

    The ufc has nothing to do with the judges. Mma judges have always been shit. Diego Sanchez should have been on like a 8 fight losing streak at one point

    "Fighting area control" & "aggressiveness" is right there next to "effective grappling & striking"

    Dear TS,
    Just don't watch fights in locals that have not adopted the new roolz & then you can be less dramatic.

    It really should be ex fighters as judges.
    It's simple that the judging and system in place simply isn't working. It's sad that these terrible scorecards aren't even shocking to me anymore.

    Very happy that Black Beast got the decision. You can't reward fighters that aren't even ATTEMPTING to inflict any sort of damage to their opponent.

    Jon losing would be better financially for the UFC, the rematch would do huge numbers.

    Lol yeah sure they don't.
    Just ignore the fact that these events literally bring the commission tons of money.
    Funny how the refs for these fights are UFC-known too.
    The UFC decided to have an event in Texas knowing full well what they were getting into.

    Yes you're right they were paid by the Texas athletic commission.
    Judges don't do it for free.

    The rest of your post is nonsense.

    If that judge was bribed they'd earn a lot more by going to the Feds and then going on all the talk shows and selling their story for a movie after their corrupt judging exposed the UFC's corruption and led to the entire company collapsing.
