I think they all need to start seperating guys sooner and standing them up sooner when fighters are not making progress, are clearly just laying and praying or at a stalemate.
This is what the UFC Wants and what the Fans want, but the message hasn't gotten to the refs yet.

I think it harkens back to the days when there were no rounds, no score cards and the only way to win was to finish your opponent.
Back then, for the most part, the fighters took it upon themselves to keep the action going and actually walked into the octagon with bad intentions.

Now that there are rounds and scores and judges, many fighters ar trying to win, not by beating the other fighter in the ring, but by outscoring him on the cards.

If that never changes, the UFC will have a hard time getting much bigger than it is. Fighters should not be rewarded simply for laying on top, unless they do damage or attempt submissions.

I agree 110% with this! I want them to win the fight no matter what it takes! They can still abide by the rules, and not have to fight in such a way it results in a decision everytime in their favour. That's ridiculous. Good point boss!

I don't know if he's ever ref'd for the UFC but I think Jason Herzog is doing a great job. Sure, he stopped Sylvia early but everyone makes mistakes. I like the way he's handling fouls like nut shots, eye pokes or grabbing the cage.
