Corrupt judges. That can be the only reason for this joke of a decision.
It needs to be looked into.

It also goes to the issue of having fighters fight in their home town at all. We all love it, but if you think about it, its kind of crazy how different the environment is for each opposing fighter.

Instead of not going to places at all, maybe the UFC would simply not allo home town fighters go to clearly biased judging places. Of course, they would never do anything to hurt their bottom line.

That's overkill, there are lots of benefits when bringing fighters to their home territories, we just need to make it clear anything dodgy or strange will be fully investigated and anyone found guilty will be punished.

Not convinced this would be the answer, I believe Forrest Griffin said something along the lines of "BJJ fighters turned judges overestimate the value of BJJ, Boxers to boxing, wrestlers to wrestling" etc

It'd be a step in the right direction at least.

For me, I wouldn't go and necessarily change the judges, but I would put in place an option where if there has been a decision that is highly controversial and attracts a certain amount of criticism the athletic commission could refer it to another panel of judges who either score the fight as it was by the first judges or if their judgement differs, call it a NC.

It's like a failsafe against idiot judging.

In a world of a million camera angles and replays readily available, its ridiculous to have judging occur at the moment without the benefit of review and from one angle.

This idea could work, expect I guess it would get bogged down and might be abused. What would entail "a certain amount of criticism?"

I'm spitballing all of this on the fly but what do you think of this:

My understanding is that the OFFICIAL UFC rankings are currently being done by the more reputable media sources and personalities, so obviously they are somewhat trusted.

How about if 80% or more of these sources/outlets scored the overall decision differently?

Yeah, I was thinking about the media too. That could work. The major issue is that, as far as I know, it would have to be universally applied to ALL local commissions,kost of who, probably would not want to appear that their judging requires any skepticism.

The Barnatt fight wasnt as bad as it first looked. You can easily score 2 rounds to Sean in it.

This was one of the worst decisions ever though. To say Sanchez was winning 10 seconds would have been a stretch.
