Las Vegas judges suck! ***Pacquiao/Bradley Spoilers***

Yes, I know this isn't MMA related but it is kind of in a way, because these judges just tarnished Manny Pacquiao's legacy. A loss is a loss, but he didn't lose here, and a loss means a lot more in boxing than it does in MMA. I was sicked when I saw the results, time and time again, regardless whether it is MMA or boxing, judges are the headline of the story.

/rant

Just so this stays UFC related, here is Dana White responding..


Dana White ‏@danawhite

Worst athletic commission in the country!!!!!!!!!!!!


Dana White ‏@danawhite

Yeah Dana White is going nuts. It's not that the commission is stupid, because it's the same people running MMA and MMA is fine. The issue is mad corruption and boxing promoters paying off the judges. Luckily Dana doesn't do that and we rarely have blatantly incorrect decisions in the UFC, especially in championship fights. In fact, the only one I've ever seen was Shogun-Machida.

This was the worst decision I have ever seen in any athletic competition. How did the judges all have the same score? 115-113 on every card for either fighter.

We heard a lot about how strange things had been, and this was the icing on the cake... Or the icing and the cake.

I got scared for a second when I saw Dana's post in my news feed. I thought maybe Sonnen got suspended again or something. Nope. Just boxing. Don't give a shit.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

In b4 Machida/Shogun 1.

But yeah, garbage call but can't really say I feel bad JMM got robbed against Manny in November, so karma came back and bit him in the ass. Floyd would have schooled Manny anyway. Money Team all day.

Manny won that fight too, but at least is was close. Loyoto won the first fight as well.

Was it even an arguable decision? I haven't seen it yet and I have no idea who Bradley is.

They don't suck. People need to realize they would suck if they scored the fight for Pacquiao, since they wer epaid to score the fight for Bradley....which they did, therefore they are proficient.

So THIS is what Dana was freaking out over on Twitter. Never really followed boxing, but this is disappointing to hear. I guess this means Pac vs Floyd is totally off the table.

Give More.
Give everything.
Give blood.
