Following a review of the Dec. 31 bout between Yoshihiro Akiyama (Pictures) and Kazuo Misaki (Pictures), the Yarennoka executive committee has ruled the fight a No Contest.

The match ended when Akiyama was knocked out with a vicious kick to the face as he attempted to scramble to his feet. Following the bout, there was much debate whether the decisive blow had been illegal.

Wow, Akiyama's starting to become synonymous with controversy again. That makes, if my memory's correct, 2 out of hsi last 3 fights that some kind of protest has been filed and the match result's been changed to No Contest.

As soon as that happened, I thought that it was a Soccer Kick but thought nothing would be done. Guess, they will have to fight again. Any word on whether our records will be changed to reflect this?

someone had asked a couple weeks ago if kicks to a downed opponent were legal and i looked at it on my dvr and saw that they werent, and interestingly knees of any kind werent allowed in fedors fight with choi. it was very close whether he was down or not and im glad they made the right call, the only downside is that the best fight of the night had no winner now and thats a shame.

Doubt it, nothing was changed after the Diaz Gomi fight decision was changed. Although this is much different (and by that I mean not completely bullshit), it is still changing a victory to a NC. I would say it should be if not for Diaz Gomi not being changed.

I'm talking about MMAPlayground Points and not having anything to do with Sherdog and such. Sorry for the confusion.

Mistake me if I'm wrong not a fan of Akiyama at all because of some of things he has done and not that he doesn't have it coming to him. But shouldnt it have been ruled a DQ for Misaki and not a no contest. I can understand unintentional head butt, Eye poke, growing shot or even a glancing elbow. But a unintentional soccer kick. But I also think the Sakuraba fight should have been a DQ for Akiyama and not a no contest. If you cheat don't just take away the fight give them a loss as well. Because a NC doesn't mean anything on your record but a loss by DQ sure does. I'm so sick of fighters not losing anything if they cheat. Oh no not a no contest what will I do. I think no contest has it place but this isn't it.

I was actually talking about MMAPG points, next time you feel like getting aggressive you should probably interpret the context properly.

nope eightone five you came off sounding aggressive not the other guy...and no points will not be affected if my understanding of the rules is correct. just like bookies do whatever is ruled the night of the fight in the ring is the final verdict for those matters.
