Kinda makes you wonder if the other refs put a lot of $$$ in the fights they officiate. There are still a lot of gray areas in MMA reffing so it's easy to justify a BS call. Or maybe they just wanna make things more interesting for the mainstream fans who don't know shit about the ground game?
Big John has some fighting experience and he knows his shit. Im sure some of these ref's havent had and maybe don't understand some positions on the ground properly.
Also as with referees in sports like soccer rules can be open to interpretation. Some refs like center stage and others will let things flow.
