When Joe mentioned their first fight is still considered to be the best fight ever, I wondered the same thing.

He called some of the judges incompetent morons who know nothing about the sport.

He also pleaded with everybody to write to Keith Kizer @ the NSAC to start educating his judges. Anybody agree? If so, I'll start a thread on here so everybody can sign it. I'll copy it and send it to him. I'm tired of these horrible decisions!
Find his address for me, and I shall send a bit of international mail to him

Rogan's rant:

Quote:
"I don't think the last fight was close and the decision went the wrong way. It puts a tremendous amount of pressure on fighters not knowing what kind of officiating you're getting. It's gross. You should be able to leave it in the hands of the judges. You should be able to just fight. And we should point out, that is the situation because of the Nevada State Athletic Commission. It has nothing to do with the UFC. People keep saying 'oh the UFC!' We have no say whatsoever. And (NSAC executive director) Keith Kizer has denied that there's an issue. I think (Kizer) needs to clean house. There's a few very good judges surrounded by a bunch of incompetent morons, who know nothing about the sport. They need to do something about that, because it's ruining MMA. It's making people think that this sport is corrupt. It has nothing to do with corruption. It's sheer and total incompetence."

Funny, because it's the same type of judging that has made so many MMA fans jump on the "Boxing is corrupt" bandwagon. However, if you look around the web and read what people are saying, it's only a fringe few who actually believe there is widespread corruption going on when it comes to poor judging in MMA.

In fact, most fans on forums today were arguing over who "won" on Saturday night between Strikeforce and UFC as much as they were complaining about the Garcia/Nam decision. A ton of fans praised Strikeforce's fighters for putting on an exciting night of fights and criticized the UFC for having too many of it's big fights going to decision with guys "fighting safe".

Judges are going to make mistakes, and that is understandable. It's not the first time Garcia has snatched a Split-Decision by fooling judges into thinking he's doing more than he actually was. The bigger problem is that so many people in and around the sport, and even in it's hardcore fanbase, have a hard time agreeing on what wins a fight and what doesn't. It's a set of criteria that literally changes from fight to fight with some people. Until there is some sort of truly organized regulating body that oversees the entire sport globally this will continue to happen, and even then people would still get it wrong sometimes.

The Garcia fight was a bad decision, but nobody can blame Garcia for going out there and fighting with reckless abandonment. After all, it only takes one wild looping punch to land a knockout and make 90% of the fans immediately forget about your deficiencies and hail you the second coming of Mike Tyson.

I cant believe it but I actually Enjoyed the StrikefArce card more than the UFC this weekend

That was Crazy I don't think Ive ever seen so many knock outs in a row??
And they were some bada$$ KO's too.

The Stephan Bonnar fight was good, the best fight of both cards In My Opinion.

I think Forrest would still beat Bonnar by the way
