Sounds like you don't understand the rules

This is an Edgar fight, nothing will happen to make the referee intervene, its the judges that they need to worry about.

Man if I was a ref and everybody got pissed at me and Dana went on a rant every time I had to do my job, I would probably just quit already

I agree that you do not understand the rules. No where, in any set of rules does it state that the ref should refer to the score cards to see who is ahead in an effort to decide how a fight should be stopped because of a intentional foul.

The rules do pretty clearly state that if there is an intentional foul that causes a fight to be stopped that the fighter that caused the foul should be disqualified.

A good reason for this is a fighter that does not have the stamina to go 5 rounds. If he wins round 1 and 2, but clearly knows he is not going to survive round 3, he can just foul his way to a no contest and not have a loss on his record!

A no-contest should only be awarded if a foul was accidental (such as a head but caused by both fighters leaning in that leads to a massive cut).

Mazz has made some mistakes but I don't think we should assume he is going to **** this one up. It isn't like he ****s every fight up, he has just royally ****ed up a few. I agree that if anything the judges scare me more when it is a potentially close 5 round fight.

Mazz is fine. He probably makes more mistakes than the other big 5 but compared to some of these refs we've seen on the undercards lately, he's great.
