CJ Ross has stepped down after a meeting with Kizer, Brady the Chairman, and the Commisioner.
The interesting part of this article is at the end
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Brady (Chairman) spoke Tuesday about the bad publicity Nevada has received over the decision with Gov. Brian Sandoval, who appoints commission members.
"I apologized to the governor for any embarrassment we may have caused the state," Brady told the newspaper. "He made me aware of his concerns. He wants things done right."
That means changing the process for selecting officials -- typically a rubber stamp of Kizer's suggestions -- beginning Sept. 25. That is when the commission is set to appoint officials to work Bradley's title defense against Juan Manuel Marquez on Oct. 12 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.
"There will be more questions asked, and Keith will be held accountable for his recommendations," Brady told the Review-Journal. "We won't be a rubber stamp anymore."
This teaches us several things. The process may be open to change away from poor judges. Kizer is going to have a bigger amount of pressure from those above him. Most importantly, it opens up channels to the folks above and around Kizer who have an influence on the state of judging in these contests.
Here is hoping to see some changes trickling down to MMA.
