Video Assisted Referee was introduced to the Premier League and footballing world in general this year with the aim to make the sport more fair. Would this work in MMA? An eye poke or low blow occurs. The referee could signal he is checking VAR And then assess whether the foul occurred, whether it was intentional, and punish accordingly. At the moment fighters are getting away with far too much cheating. Eye pokes etc are never punished. It could even be used for strikes to the back of the head. Hendo KOs Fedor with illegal strikes to the back of the head. He celebrates. The crowd goes wild. Ref checks VAR. Clearly sees the strikes to the back of the head and Fedor wins via DQ. Could VAR be the answer?
