Default Are you Kidding me?

Possible Spoiler of UFC 96








Now i just watched the UFC 96 and what the hell is going on?!

At the last UFC Josh Koschecks fight was ended for that KO, fair enough, i thought he deserved a chance to fight out of it, others on here with good reason stated that it was the right decsion!

Matt Brown v Pete Sell blows that one out of the water!!! Surely we can see why Josh was mad because the difference is startling.

The punishment Sell had to take was unbelieveable and that was a bad refering! What was going on?!

On the other hand, Matt Brown looked amazing, when he went in for the kill a second time, he scared me, how dangerous he looked!

Hey, heres to hoping Hughes does Serra as badly as that one!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, that was pretty messed up. Kos at least landed on his back and got ready, but it was more of a reaction. Both of them were KOed for sure though. Good call on the Kos fight, bad call on the Sell fight.

Brown looked awesome last night!

I couldn't believe what happened there and fair play to Brown, he tried! He was exasperated by the whole thing!

Good to see Sell was ok, as it was clear he took a lot of needless punishment.

I thought Sell would be too much for Brown but he really turned it on, liked him on the show, im looking forward to see him in the Octagon again.

The worst thing is the inconsistency, obviously its difficult to set down rigid rules and Refs use discretion but its just too incosistant.

The UFC misses Big John, as far as i remember, Big John got in quickly when needed and knew when a fight was done but also would give every opportunity for the other fighter to recover or defend intelliegently.

Also all the other Refs just lack the natural authority John had with fighters.
