I'll tell you what, if Dana White overturns the decision and gives it to Hamill, then I will CONSIDER supporting a live pay-per-view event, otherwise I can wait for the free television broadcast...

If your a customer of any particular business and they make a bad decision that affects the way you view them, it's on them to make it right or you can choose not to support them any longer. It's that simple...

I could almost say no, but I really just want to watch Shogun fight.

You can do whatever you want, there are alot of people who are boycotting the UFC. As for me, I will watch the fights, but only when they are televised for free at this point.

There is a difference between a bad call, and getting screwed out of a win and everyone knows it, hence the billions of posts and petetions all over the web.

Does Dana White have the power to overturn the decision, he should! After all he is the UFC president. When most businesses make mistakes, they usually publicly apologize and correct them...

As for my user name and posting status, in this case quality and common sense outweigh the quantity of yours punk!!!

right...since you think ufc is really ganna get boycotted...right...thatll happen.

again did boxing die in the 80s 90s present. during which time don king reigned supreme and controlled almost everything, and decisions were expected to be bad, because rematches make money. hmm dont think so

also your still under the assumption that it was really an awful call, and apparent all of these "millions" out there saying it was such a terrible call, are mma experts that are of professional skill when calling a fight (even though i could pretty much make a case of how most of them became fans within the last couple years and watch because they want to see people beat each other up, and have no understanding of the art, that is martial arts.)

I'll be purchasing UFC 76 because I enjoy watching the stuff, one wayward decision won't stop me from buying it.

Talk about over-reacting.. Go ahead and boycott the UFC for the rest of your life, I don't think anyone (especially Dana White) would notice nor care. Plus Shogun vs. Griffin, Sanchez vs. Fitch, Griffin vs. Tavares, Machida vs. Nakamura! How can I miss that awesome card.

Nobody is boycotting the event. People want entertainment and thats what the UFC is. People still watch other sports with refs who suck because they are entertaining.
