    Why hasn't this happened? Fights have been overturned for a positive marijuana test. Should Bigfoot be like 3-5 in his last 8?

    How do you overturn a draw?

    And how is 3-4-1 so much better than 3-5 in his last 8?

    it would never be turned into a loss just a no contest

    and they only overturn wins because draws aren't worth anything

    What would turning a draw into a NC accomplish?

    What's the point of changing a draw to a N/C?

    The fight happened. It was a Draw.

    No one can change that fact. You can't re-write history. If you let the fight happen... then it happened. Next time "catch them" before the fight actually happens.

    After the fight...? ... water under the bridge. "Overturning" thing means nothing.

    Reality is reality.

    Actually I'm pretty sure it is a NC on Bigfoot's record, and a draw on Hunt's

    And what does that accomplish? It wasn't a win for anyone anyway. It just goes from a x-x-1 to a x-x-x(1).

    Literally the reason for the saying "six of one, half dozen of the other"'s creation.

    Just for the purpose of properly keeping records

    It actually works against that notion, though. A no contest actually implies that Bigfoot won the fight, but since he popped, the result got overturned. It's misleading when the fight was called a draw.
