UFC Instant Replay Not Far Off

Originally Posted by IronMan @ MMAOpinion

NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer is credited with confirming the new institution of an instant replay system to be used by the UFC and, with the latest missed call in the fight between Mirko “CroCop” Filipovic and Mostapha Al-Turk, it’s clear that circumstances have made it necessary to at least have a serious conversation and test drive of the system.

MMAJunkie talked to Kizer about the system fairly extensively, and Kizer made clear that the purpose of the system will be to review those fights declared TKO’s, even though the winner should have been disqualified for procuring the TKO by way of an illegal eye-poke, citing the Al-Turk fight and Anthony Johnson’s loss to Kevin Burns.

Kizer also credited the initial conception of the idea to UFC Vice-President Mark Ratner, and stated that a fight ended and then reviewed would be sent to the judges for immediate review and a potential technical decision. Of course, for those who think that the decisions of the judges are often less reliable than the decisions of referees, this is not necessarily a win, but in clear cut instances like the first Anthony Johnson vs. Kevin Burns fight, Burns could have been awarded a technical decision instead of a TKO, helping to do away with some of the controversy (though, perhaps not all, as an illegal move is an illegal move, and there are those who will object to it).
