    Sounds like he actually is trying to make sure the people judging and reffing are competant, all AC's should do that instead of just throwing random people in there who don't give a fuck about MMA

    Every time I see the words "UFC Saskatoon" I can't help being reminded of "world fucking domination." It's really coming true.

    Probably so, and possibly Jerin Valel too.

    Are you worried the canadian niceness will get fights stopped early or something? Its not like the usual stable of refs haven't been on the end of a few questionable stoppages recently.
     
  12. All title fights in Herb Dean-less territory from now on, please!

    The fights have title contention implications. IE, they matter. I just hate the idea of top 10 fights on national television being potentially marred by dodgy reffing.

    Here's to hoping for guys that don't stop the fights way too early, let the punishment go way too long, or letting guys LnP and Wall and stall for ages.

    They engaged in some terrible apostrophe abuse.

    As a Canadian perhaps I can put some of your worries to rest. I have it on good authority that the Saskatoon commission has hired 2 lumberjacks, a Mountie, an Eskimoe aka Inuit chief, and 2 former Hockey refs from the East Coast hockey league to take care of business. Don't worry 'eh. Things will work out you hosers! No doot aboot it!

    They should hire former fighters only to ref imo.

    So your problem here is that there is a commission that actually takes it's job to regulate MMA seriously?
