"I'm with you on the instant replay. Every other major sport has instant replay. Fighting needs to do it. Especially with how bad the officiating has been: judges and reffing. Instant replay -- that's it. They got this thing with combat sports, these athletic commissions have this thing where it's like, once a guy makes a decision, it can't be overturned. It's insane! Guys are gonna make a mistake! You can't be at all the angles. You can't see everything. This sport is so young. There's a lot of guys that are unqualified to ref and judge this sport. Instant replay makes sense, and it'd be awesome, because the thing that people don't understand is, once you make a decision, and it's a bad call, that's this guy's life...forever. It's a career changer. You make a mistake in a baseball game, and there'll be 190 more opportunities to make up for it. They'll be okay! You make a mistake in fighting, and it hurts this guy immensely.
It has to get better. If it doesn't, everybody's in trouble. I consistently call people out, and we're doing everything we can to try and stop this from happening. I think it's one of the worst things that can happen, if a guy loses a fight, that didn't really lose that fight. It effects their money. It effects everything. I mean, Jon Jones has a loss on his record that isn't right. That wasn't a loss. He should be undefeated right now. We should be able to go out and promote Jon Jones as the undefeated, undisputed Light Heavyweight champion, but we can't, because there was a guy reffing a fight that didn't belong there."
