Shouldn't have been a loss.NC should have been the result.But quite frankly these commissions are never logical and rarely ever overturn any decisions unless there's something like steroids. It's unfortunate but that's MMA currently. Need some better judging and officials I think.

We don't know what is the standard of review but based on that brief excerpt it is possible that the NSW Commission does not overturn refereeing decisions unless a very demanding stardard is met. In that case, it may not be sufficient that the initial referee's decision was incorrect. Just speculating based on very sketchy info.

 It has nothing to do with betting money.  Wagers are paid on result at the end of the night.  A n/c, reveral, etc after the fact has no bearing.

This is what fucks me up though. I don't understand AT ALL how they can possibly NOT overturn it, with the blatant video evidence?!How can you NOT?
