There was a time when the ringside judge's seat was the best view to watch prize fighting. With the advent of multiple camera angles, HD technology, and slow-motion replay, the couch in your living room is the best seat for fight watching in 2011.

Athletic commissions have been slow to adapt to current technology. While the fan at home has the best possible view of a fight, judges cageside are still forced to ignore big screens in the arena, and make do with a single, suboptimal angle of the action.

After years of judging controversy, the UFC is taking the initiative.

Sounds good to me. Let's just hope the sound is off so they don't hear some of the nuthuggery that goes on with Rogan and Goldberg

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I'm afraid this idea makes far too much sense for an athletic commission to accept

This is great. I don't know why they would say no to something that would make the sport better.

He'd be able to play Black Ops while judging fights. #WINNING!
