When Georges St-Pierre was announced as a split-decision winner over Johny Hendricks in the main event of this past Saturday’s UFC 167 event, fans, fighters and even UFC President Dana White had all kinds of suggestions for the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Now they’ll have a chance to address the commission face to face.

I agreed with the decision, but there's no doubt the judging system/judges need work. Hopefully this means something will finally be done, though I'm not expecting much to change.

I think the UFC needs to have its own rules , referees , and judges like the old days.

Something will happen. Dana called out the governor himself. A guy like Kizer has to know his job is on the line especially if the governor truly believes Dana and the UFC won't return to Vegas in the future.

Why not, the NFL does and he wants the UFC to be just as big.

I think I'm starting to come around to Kizer's hair style, I might steal it.

Perhaps we can finally address knees to grounded opponents or what constitutes a grounded opponent. This bs of a finger touching the floor as being "downed" really has to end, it gives so much additional leverage to people who get caught coming in for a sloppy take down. Plain and simple it should be both knees on the floor minimum or at least half an ass on the ground before they start getting protected (looking at you Ross P.....wait that's too obvious...R. Pearson).

Completely agree man. I'm so tired of that rule.

I would like to see an annual re-evaluation test on current referees to see through that they are up to speed on any current and or new rules in the system. Judges should also be subjeced to annual testing to reassure they are competent and accurate with their results. Right now it just seems like the NSAC is just really lazy and not following through with anything.

And that John McCarthy guy is a pretty good referee. You might want to take a look at him and use him from time to time, especially in title fights.

In the system I'm proposing, the UFC would get permission from an athletic commission to hold an event, but they could use their own referees , rules , and judges.

there is a reason why you won't see him ref in Nevada

They do these workshops somewhat regularly, this isn't a knee jerk reaction to anything.
