allowing a judge to take a point away when the ref does not think a point should be taken away is stupid. Allowing a judge to take a point away when no foul has even been called or rule the fight a no contest ****ing stupid. First, if a foul, such as a low blow or poke in the eye, makes it so a fighter can not continue the fighter who committed the foul is not given the win. The only time I have ever seen this happen was in the Anthony Johnson fight and that was because the ref did not see the eye poke. In most cases the fight will be ruled a No Contest or if the fight has gone long enough (past the 3rd round I think) they will go to the judges. Second, there is no way they can allow judges to take points away if the ref did not think a point should be taken away. You are giving the judge more power than the should ever have. There would be no consistency in the judging at that point. Allowing them to take points away when no foul was even called would cause even more problems. A judge could take a point away simply because he might have seen a foul that might or might not have happened. If MMA made the changes you suggest it would destroy the sport.
