    We officially have our winner for worst judge of the year.

    Supposed "explanation":



    I presume by "mistake" they mean, "Don't all Mexicans look the same?" Assuming he confused the fighters, it's not clear how then he got the 2nd round right.

    Not to mention, neither of the two judges gave Suarez a 10-8 round.

    Nah. The worse judges are the ones who scored in 10-9 instead of 10-8.

    We wonder why MMA judging is so bad, they can't even tell the fighters apart...

    It just goes to show how incompetent and possibly how corrupt judging is in MMA.

    They should let retired fighters judge the fights. The people they have judging obviously don't watch mma and have very little interest in it..

    A little embarrassing, but perhaps an honest mistake.

    I remember some moron judge said "the UFC is like football or basketball it's a tough sport"...... If the judge doesn't even realize "UFC" is not a sport it's a org....... SMH

    Imagine if something like that had decided the fight.

    After seeing something like this, I wouldn't be surprised if this "honest mistake" has changed a fight result several times in the past.

    Like seriously, how the fuck am I supposed to trust these scorecards when the judges don't even know who they're judging?

    Tony Weeks would have been proud.


    But I think they should sanction that judge and put him on something he can't fuck up, like reading the scales or something.

    Gooooo Texas!

    No you can't. Not when a persons livelihood is dependent on you making a mistake. For fucks sake

    You would think judges would look back at their scorecards before finalizing them. If so he would have realized Carla got mauled in the 1st round and quickly corrected it.
