    So like if there is a fight in Brazil, is there mostly just brazillion judges. If a fight is in England, the same? Does The UFC invest in fair judging by flying in say a Brazillion judge to England and vice verses or are we cheated by there love of money and not a fair decision?

    To answer your question, yes, they do. Bisping vs. Hamill had an American judge that gave it the fight to Bisping, and a Brit who gave it to Hamill. In reality judges are affected by crowd reaction no matter where they're from, and the crowd is always biased. What they should do is put judges in a separate room and watch the fight on monitors, without being subject to the crowd reaction.

    Basically if you have to damn near kill someone in their hometown to get the judges decision and even then it might be a split

    Wow if it's posted in the UFC gym it must be gospel...
    It's like saying slaves shouldn't complain about getting whipped if they try to run, because "rule #1 is never run".
    To insinuated that judges shouldn't be left a decision because of incompetence is an indictment of sport's (if not our society's) overarching idiocracy.
