As the saying mixed martial arts goes, “Don’t leave it in the hands of the judges.”

The judging in MMA is always subject for great scrutiny, and it’s well deserved.

With incompetent officiating, some fighters exit the Octagon holding their heads low because they left it in the judges hands. And at UFC 149 against Nick Ring, Court McGee was another unfortunate fighter that was given a bad call.

All three judges Octagon side scored the fight 29-28 in favor of Nick Ring, but McGee wasn’t at all fazed by the decision. The TUF 11 winner knew that he left it all in the practice room and in the fight and harbors no resentment for the outcome.

“I’m not the judges and I’m not the counter punch guy,” McGee told MMAWeekly Radio.

“I don’t count every little punch, every kick and strike. I’m just the guy who shows up to practice every day and comes out to fight and win. I had an overwhelming amount of people who thought that I had won. People like Dana and stuff had me winning the fight, but I’m just the guy who goes out and fights man.

Come on, man. The arguement is over who took the second round, either way it was only by a small margin.

I think Court had a 10-8 third, but i also thought Ring took the second.

The ring fan boy in me says it was 29-28, the analytical me scored it 29-29

McGee really needed a knockdown to get that 10-8 round to me, 1 would have done

This. Watching it live I had it a draw. I'm happy Ring won the way he did because it really helped my wagers but I really don't think he deserved it with the way he fought.

You one of the judges? Cause I think your comment is a joke!

This is the reason MMA is losing fans, and if it keeps heading in this direction, this long time fan will stop watching! Judges are ruining MMA.
