After UFC 106, Dana White and Marc Ratner Address MMA Judging

Ratner_medium MMA Junkie quoted Dana White talking about the plague of controversial judges decisions that has afflicted the UFC in the main events of UFC 104, 105 and 106:

White said he realizes there is a real need for improvement in scoring, but he clarified that the process isn't in his hands.

"Believe me, you're preaching to the choir here," White said. "There's nothing worse than when guys go out and train hard for a fight and lose fights that they won. It drives me nuts.

"That has nothing to do with me, though. The best thing we're doing on our side is that we've got Marc Ratner, and Marc Ratner is out there trying to work with these guys everyday to make it better. I mean, when you watch a fight like this tonight and hear a 30-27 score (for Griffin), I mean - I don't even know. I'm just so exhausted by this whole thing. It's tiring. It's terrible."

Here's Marc Ratner, the current Zuffa Vice President of Regulatory Affairs talking to Heavy.com. The former Executive Director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission answers questions about UFC's continuing controversies surrounding poor officiating and bad judging.

 

And if Ratner can't work it out with the Commissions, Dana advises the fans to reach out:

"I don't know what to say," White admitted. "If everyone wants to call the (Nevada State) Athletic Commission and talk to (executive director) Keith Kizer - he's the guy you have to ask questions to, not me. ... The reality is you guys have to call Keith Kizer. Call Keith Kizer and asked him what we can to do to fix this judging and scoring.

"These athletic commissions need to start looking at this and figuring out what they're going to do. It's wrong."
