Even the MMA world is up in arms about the decision handed down after Saturday night’s professional boxing bout between Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley.

The world championship bout went all 12 rounds with nearly everyone, except the official Nevada Athletic Commission appointed judges that is, scoring the fight overwhelmingly in Pacquiao’s favor… as in most people thought Pacquiao had won eight to 10 rounds.

What does boxing have to do with MMA you say?

Shitty day for combat sports. MMA needs to find a way to distance itself from boxing's scoring system over the next decade imo.

Not something I want to see from Daddy Dana while we're trying to push for MMA in New York.

I could go on all day about how fucked up the NSAC is..


Any sport where there is judges this kind of shit will happen.


It's a damn shame we have to go through these guys just to be legit
