While much of the post-UFC 99 fallout has focused squarely on Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic's apparent snub of the UFC, the Croatian striker's path to victory over Mostapha Al Turk has been relatively ignored.

While difficult to pick up live, replays of the action from Saturday's main-card bout in Cologne, Germany clearly show a single poke to both of Al Turk's eyes led directly to the ensuing TKO win for Filipovic.

While Al Turk was left without recourse based on current MMA regulations, Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer on Tuesday told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that change could be quickly coming in the form of instant replay.

"We're trying to find out if there's a way to do limited instant replay," Kizer told MMAjunkie.com's George Garcia and John Morgan on Tuesday's edition of "GoodSports," co-hosted by Garcia. "We're hoping to find a way to do that."

When the UFC ventures abroad to countries lacking an athletic commission, the organization and its Vice President of Regulatory Affairs (and former NSAC Executive Director), Marc Ratner, turn to the NSAC's regulations for guidance.

i think it should happen, but all it will mean is victories turned to no contests and disqualifications

For what? Eye pokes?

How often is instant replay actually needed?

Not enough to warrant instant replay, imo.
