Why even have judges?

HigherFrequencyHigherFrequency Posts: 411Free
If they get a large percentage of the fights "wrong", then why have them at all? If they do the job that they have been trained to do and all they do is get booed and even discredited by Dana White himself nearly every event, then why? Totally bizarre to me that just if someone didn't like the look of the fight or the decision, they get to go public and flame the judges left and right? And where are the judges? Probably just trying to get some sleep after a long night.

Really.... If Dana can just walk in and change the rankings and stuff based on what he sees in a fight, then all we have is entertainment for Dana.

    So we shouldn't complain about bad decisions to help bad judges sleep better?

    And you say that like Dana is the only one who disagrees with decisions. @zaksame

    They don't get a large percentage of fights wrong (although a lot of close ones they do.)

    Its not on the UFC, the commissions are totally incompetent.

    Dana doesn't decide what the rankings are at all.

    cuz we need them to act as a wall to protect the outcome of fights from butthurt fans who constantly cry after a close fight.

    You are overestimating the power of Dana

    he cannot simply remove the judges of UFC

    The UFC chooses the judges for many international shows (Definitely Brazil and Australia shows, not sure where else) and they still appoint Sal D'amato to judge even though he is incredibly incapable and has proven it many times.

    Well op in REAL LEGIT sports ,the rules are governed by all,in the UFC it is Dana's way or no way.
    If for example a coach criticized the officials,he gets fined,if he criticizes the league he gets fined,Dana can do what ever he wants,even break the law and nothing comes of it.
    The problem with judges is the whole system,there is NEVER going to be a set criteria because it will ALWAYS be opinion.It would be like opinions on what is justified as a QUALITY shot on goal in hockey or what is construed as kicked in or accidental,there will always be opinions.

    Problem with Dana is he does not have opinions,he actually feels he is right and wants to make his opinion matter when nobody else's does.It is really simple ,get rid of rounds,problem is the UFC ONLY does what it does to make sure they get licensed.
    Gina Miesha Kyra ...yes please.

    They have to have judges because that's how they do it in boxing and the only way MMA can get sanctioned is by being something in the same family as boxing.

    What really matter is WHAT DANA THINKS OF YOU PERFORMANCE, to be honest. It all depends if you are a "good boy". It all depends if he likes you, period. If was a a UFC fighter I would careless if I was robbed by judges as long as Dana tells me "Hey, i think you won".

    He thoughts Shogun won the 1st Machida fight and what happened ? IMMEDIATE rematch

    He thought Hendricks beat GSP and ... we all know Hendricks was going to get an IMMEDIATE REMATCH.

    If Dana likes you and your performance he will "take care of you".

    As for Thompson, no worries. Dana will give him a title shot after an win !! As long as he doesnt retire.
