That argument can be made in MMA too. MMA has had it's fair share of controversial decisions and general shadiness both internally and on the side of the commissions over the years.
As for Khan/Peterson, the WBA did their investigation into the scoring fiasco and ordered the rematch, which was the right thing to do. However, they just canceled the rematch because Peterson tested positive for synthetic testosterone, something the MMA world is very familiar with in recent years.
