Ken Pavia to appeal Anthony Johnson's loss!

Ken Pavia, the agent for UFC welterweight Anthony “Rumble” Johnson, recently revealed that he will be filing a formal appeal as a result of Johnson’s TKO loss on Saturday during UFC Fight Night 14.

During the bout, Johnson had been on the receiving end of several eye pokes from his opponent, Kevin Burns. In spite of multiple warnings, Johnson still received a severe poke during the third and final round of the fight. After taking the finger to the eye, Johnson retreated to the canvas and covered up. Referee Steve Mazzagatti then called a stop to the fight and later ruled Burns the winner via TKO.

I would be remiss if I didn’t file a complaint and seek recourse for the outcome of the Anthony Johnson fight results this weekend,” Pavia stated during a forum post in the Underground forum at MixedMartialArts.com.

“Anthony Johnson has accepted what has happened and has shown nothing but class through the process,” Pavia added towards the end of his post. “This was most evident in the first round when he inadvertently kick Kevin Burns in the groin and backed off and apologized. He didn’t not call Kevin Burns out for the six or so eye gouges with and open hand or for pouncing after putting three of his finger print on the back of his eye socket. Rumble told me he thought his eye popped out.”

Whether Pavia will have any success in trying to get the decision overturned remains to be seen, as fight outcomes are rarely changed after the fact. Complicating matters is the fact that the Nevada State Athletic Commission may not even allow a decision to be overturned. Pavia expressed that he still believes the commission may take action.

“While there may not be a code section that affords the opportunity to overturn a decision as (NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer) informed me, he has always considered all input and done his best to effectuate justice,” said Pavia.

I don't see how Pavia can lose this appeal, because it was obvious that Johnson went down from the eyepoke.

I really hope he can get something done about the result- it was absolutely terrible. NC it at the very least, though Johnson was clearly winning.

As for people saying they should rematch- if I was Johnson I would not put my eyesight or eyeballs in jeopardy again with Burns.

if ever there was a reason to overturn a result.

Video replay is a valuble tool. To not use it in an instance like this would be an injustice. I think a NC is in order.

This is a good thing. I just watched the fight last night, and those eye pokes were ridiculous. How dumbass Mazzagatti could call that a TKO for burns I'll never know.

Mazz really needs to be either retrained, or let go. He's just crap lately.

Has to be at least a NC, but should be a win for johnson since it was in the last round and it should of went to the score cards. There is no way they should lose this appeal.

This will be interesting. On one hand, the right thing to do is overturn this abomination of reffing but on the other, I could see the board deciding not to take action so they don't open the flood gates on appealing decisions.

On a side note, just a quick little suggestion and food for thought: I taught my about-to-be-wife the Kevin Burns "punch" in case she is attacked. If it works that well against Anthony Johnson then you know it will work against a crackhead, right? Thank you Kevin "Edward Scissorhands" Burns!

Instinct has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Johnson should have won. Burns was warned repeatedly throughout the fight. The last eye poke was devastating and Johnson couldn't finish the fight. It was Burns fault the fight ended, not Johnson's.
