Also, I agree that Nog won the fight. But knowing the judges I wasn't at all surprised when he lost. It was close enough that I knew there was a good chance the judges would get it wrong.
Right, MMA judges as a group are losing their credibility, and there's a growing expectation - not just a worry, mind, an expectation - for poor judging decisions on each and every card. In the WEC 51 discussion thread last night, two of us predicted that Hominick-Garcia would be scored a Split Decision, when it was pretty obvious that Hominick had practically run the table. Those judges who don't have their heads where the Sun doesn't shine, as well as the administrative people at the various state commissions, should be embarrassed by the growing public perception of their collective incompetence.
