Bonnar loses appeal against Soszynski result

Stephan Bonnar lost an appeal to change the result of his UFC 110 loss to Krzystztof Soszynski.

The Combat Sports Authority of New South Wales, which was tasked with regulating the February event in Sydeny, Australia, ruled this past Tuesday that the official result ruling the fight a TKO win in favor of Soszynski stands.

"A review was held ... and the Combat Sports Authority of NSW did not seek to interfere with the referee's decision," wrote Craig Waller, Executive Director of the Combat Sports Authority of New South Wales, in an email sent to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) late Tuesday night.

The light heavyweight bout came to a halt early in the third round when an accidental clash of heads opened a huge cut on Bonnar's forehead. With a little less than four minutes remaining in the fight, the cageside doctor examined the bloody cut and recommended the bout be stopped. The referee subsequently called the fight in Soszynski's favor.

Bonnar (11-7 MMA, 5-6 UFC) immediately protested the decision and said the bout should be ruled a no contest. Shortly afterward, the original "Ultimate Fighter" veteran filed his appeal with the Australian commission and angled for a rematch with Soszynski (19-9-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC).

According to multiple reports, Bonnar will get his wish when the two meet for a second time at The Ultimate Fighter 11 Finale on June 19 in Las Vegas.

Bonnar said he is disappointed by the ruling but is moving on. He did not explicitly confirm the rumored rematch.

"It was obviously a battle between me and [the NSW commission], but as far as the fight, Dana White's a fair guy, and I'm pretty confident we'll have that rematch soon," Bonnar told MMAjunkie.com.

Soszynski was unavailable for comment at the time of his writing.
Wow ... that's really dissapointing. Great job Combat Sports Authority of NSW

Yeah I hear of appeals being denied far more often than being approved. Actually when is the last time a decision was changed in the UFC?

Have they ever turned over a result? The only one I know about is when Nick Diaz got busted for weed use after he Gogo'd Gomi.

This is completely wrong. I don't even want to use swear words here. All I can say is that there is no reason to score this fight for Krys and the CSA made the wrong decision by denying Bonnar's appeal. I mean... WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?

I kinda figured. I feel there has been plenty of appeals that should be overturned but haven't. Reasons i don't know... they never feel the need to explain themselves to the public.

I don't recall any of these appeals ever going through. These athletic commissions hate to change any results because they don't want the mistake to reflect back on them, instead they just sweep the whole ordeal under the rug and hope that everybody forgets about it. Pathetic.

This is just my uninformed theory of course but I enjoy being mad at authority
