Ken Pavia, the agent for UFC welterweight Anthony “Rumble” Johnson, recently revealed that he will be filing a formal appeal as a result of Johnson’s TKO loss on Saturday during UFC Fight Night 14.

During the bout, Johnson had been on the receiving end of several eye pokes from his opponent, Kevin Burns. In spite of multiple warnings, Johnson still received a severe poke during the third and final round of the fight. After taking the finger to the eye, Johnson retreated to the canvas and covered up. Referee Steve Mazzagatti then called a stop to the fight and later ruled Burns the winner via TKO.

At least but I think Burns should be DQed and Johnson given the win or at least go to the scorecards and if that was the case Johnson would have won.

If the decision is reversed--which it should be--will our picks reflect the change? Does anyone know if a similar circumstance has occured here and how it was dealt with?

i don't think it will be reversed. i am pretty sure, from what i read a few days ago, that the judge's decision is final on mmaplayground.

The way it would happen if it did get reversed.

no NC, because it was round 3 in a non title fight. so if he did win the appeal, they would go to the judges scorecards for Round 1 and 2. In other words Rumble wins. but who cares about his record. Burns knows he lost that fight, Johnson knows he won, and Us fans agree with Johnson ( most of us ). It sorta gains him more fan base if he losses a fight he really won. but just my 2 cents.

I still think it most likely wont get overturned, but If it did, I would be happy for him

A lot of people mistook his coments about fighting all the best fighters at all weight classes and tyring to be a dominant champion. I recall people saying he was just another Melvin Guillard. I thought he was very classy in his loss given the circumstances. I would have been pissed. I am a bigger fan because of it.
I was very impressed with Burns but he has got to do something about that hand.

Rightfully so IMO. Johnson was robbed. TKO via eye poke... I wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it myself.
