Court McGee vs Nick Ring
"Don't leave it in the hands of the judges."

This phrase heavily implies that the judges can't be trusted to witness what is happening in front of their own eyes. Lately there have been some decisions that are worthy of discussion. One of these decisions is McGee vs Ring.

My impression was that Ring won round 1, I'm pretty sure we can all agree on that. I thought round 2 was all McGee. He was the aggressor, landed some pretty good strikes and blocked almost everything that Ring had to offer. Maybe I'm still in the heat of the moment, but I thought McGee won round 2 and there was no way that anyone could score it otherwise. Then I hear two judges gave both rounds to Ring and he moves on in the competition. Obviously McGee is the one who will get the Wild Card spot on Chuck's team, but I still think the fight should have gone to a third round. Who knows what would have happened?

Sorry if this has turned out to be sort of a rant.

That was a very unfortunate decision they made. Should have went another round IMO.

Third round for sure. The last round was sort of a dead heat though but I do think McGee landed more. Thing is though, I'm pretty sure if that went to a third Ring would've won it, McGee was on point for the first 3 minutes of that round but after that he started getting a bit sloppy and Ring was landing unchecked kicks at will.

Definite third round, sometimes I think that the NSAC should just employ a load of crazy homeless folk, much cheaper wages and will probably do just as good a job.

i rewatched the 2nd round again and paid attention to Ring specifically this time, and yes he did do more than in thought he did when i was watching only to pull for Court, but he did not do better by far.

3rd round for sure.

Would have been nice to have seen who would have won had the fight gone to the third. I think Court was starting to get the distance and timing of Ring in the second. Oh well.

I don't see how anyone could have scored the second round for Nick Ring, granted Cort didn't dominate but he did alot more and was definitely the aggressor. 3rd round for sure.

I'm glad to see "20-18 Ring" doesn't have a single vote (yet). :thumbsup:

Which poses the question: what did 2 of 3 judges see in that second round that all of us didn't?
