Following a controversial stoppage at UFC 115, Mac Danzig and his management team have filed an appeal with the Vancouver Athletic Commission to have the loss to Matt Wiman overturned to a no contest.

The news of the appeal was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by Danzig via text message, and first reported by BJPenn.com.

There was so much confusion over the stoppage that the UFC has made a rematch between Wiman and Danzig at UFC Fight Night 22 in Austin, Texas, as a lead-in to the 12th season of “The Ultimate Fighter" on Sept. 15.

That not withstanding, because of the stoppage, Danzig still has a loss on his record; one he hopes to have expunged and changed to a no contest.

The Vancouver Athletic Commission has yet to respond with a verdict in the matter.

 Typical Athletic Commission bull shit stance on everything is to pretend there isnt a problem as they like to pretend mistakes are never made.  Nothing will happen.

 I agree with him, but I doubt they overturn it. They rarely if ever overturn a ref's decision.

I agree with what he is doing and feel the same way. No fighter should lose a match because the ref made an error.
