Is there really a judging credibility issue with the UFC or is the media overplaying it’s hand on what was simply a tight fight?

No overreaction. Bisping lost the second round. It was closer towards the end, but let me remind you that he landed VERY few solid shots, where as Hamill landed more shots, and more clean shots. The third round, I'll admit, was a great round for Bisping, but the two before that he lost, and anyone who disagrees was probably drugged during the event.

P.S. No, Rampage was not knocked out by Ronald McDonald.

P.P.S. I'm going by how I remembered the fight, by the by.

If its a really tight fight, the answer would be to go with the fan favorite, like any org, whether it's pride of UFC or ELITE XC

The UFC can't afford to have things like that happen. People are very critical of a sport that puts two men in a cage to fight. They start having people holding chokes and putting people to sleep after they tap and judges blowing things like that it will put people off. May seem small but alot of general fans see things like that and question the whole legitimacy of the UFC.
