UFC Requests Monitors for Judges at UFC 130

If the UFC has its way, there will be monitors present beside each judge at next month's UFC 130 in Las Vegas.

Marc Ratner, the UFC's Vice President of Regulatory Affairs, informed MMA Fighting that the organization has formally submitted a request to the Nevada State Athletic Commission to install monitors as a backup viewing option for the judges assigned to score the bouts at UFC 130.

"I've emailed [NSAC Executive Director] Keith [Kizer] and asked him to put the request on the next agenda. We believe these monitors will be another look to help with the judges," Ratner wrote via e-mail.

Last week, MMA Fighting reported that no plans were in place in Nevada to place monitors for the judges to look at during fights.

According to the UFC, California is the only state to ever provide monitors for judges while scoring MMA bouts.

When MMA Fighting asked NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer if he would be open to the idea, Kizer replied, "Maybe." He added that it was up to a promoter to formally ask for the monitors to be present.

"A promoter can petition (to allow judges to have personal monitors,) and we'd put it on the agenda," Kizer told MMA Fighting last week. "The UFC is well aware of the process but has chosen not to ask in the past."

UFC 130 takes place May 28 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The main event is Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard 3 for the UFC lightweight title.

"DON'T LET IT GO TO THE JUDGES"

I don't know How I feel about this Saying??:blink: Its kind of dumb IMO.

I'm pretty sure no one does it on purpose and goes to a decision!?!?!? Not even Shields,Fitch or GSP. Im sure if they had the opportunity to finish they would.

Bah, you've not been watching a lot of the most recent fights then. There are plenty of examples to be had of fighters playing it safe and not minding that they are just scoring more points and letting it go to the judges. Watch more fights, then criticize.
