    First Joe Rogan and Dominick Cruz notice one of the judges wasn't watching the Murphy/Lee fight:

    Then Andrea Lee calls for judge to be fired and for video evidence:
    http://:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::ee...wants-fans-in-attendance-to-send-in-evidence/

    Then the Texas Department of Licensure and Regulation issues a statement:
    “Claims have been made that a judge was not paying attention to the fight and was looking down at the floor,” Mange said. “One of the advances that UFC has made in the past several years has been to provide small video monitors below the floor level of the octagon for each judge to more closely monitor matches.”

    And now footage of the judge emerges!


    Looks like he was looking at his phone to me. I also can't help but notice TDLR's statement wasn't a denial.

    Any footage of what the judges were doing during the Hendricks/GSP fight? Because that was far more egregious.

    This is what I was hoping they had footage of. They addressed the judge "looking at the floor" but never the part where Rogan said there was a judge straight up having a conversation and not looking at the fight for an extended period of time. So did the commission install a monitor in that dude's face too?

    LOL when people say WMMA matches is bathroom break time that doesn't mean the judges too.

    Now that's fucked up. Probably looking at a text asking him how the fights are going. "Beats me - I'm not even paying attention!!!"

    Are we sure that’s a judge, judging that fight? I’d need to know that for sure before saying much else. Because I read somewhere the phone guy was a commission guy. Context definitely matters.

    This fight could have gone either way. What's more fucked up is the judge scoring 30-27 for Giles.

    Someone said that they were looking at the floor as the Fight was on.
