McGee: It's hard to find good judges

by Andrew Gladston | source:

“I’m not the judges and I’m not the counter punch guy,” McGee told MMAWeekly Radio.

“I don’t count every little punch, every kick and strike.  I’m just the guy who shows up to practice every day and comes out to fight and win.  I had an overwhelming amount of people who thought that I had won.  People like Dana and stuff had me winning the fight, but I’m just the guy who goes out and fights man.

“You know, it’s not up to me, it’s up to the judges to make that decision and sometimes they don’t make the best decisions.  Sometimes you don’t know what they’re watching.”

“There’s decisions that are bad, but I know in MMA it’s hard to find good judges. People aren’t experienced in the grappling and the wrestling, and the kickboxing and boxing.  I know for a fact a promotion in Colorado, like the last three judges they had for the past two or three shows were all boxing judges, amateur boxing.  A lot of their scores were more towards like amateur style point system punching, so when they went to they ground, they really didn’t know.”

The process to become a judge is a fucking nightmare. I looked into it a little because there is no way i could be worse than the motherfuckers they have now.

I thought the fight was a draw. I think I had the first round 10-10, the second 10-9 for Nick, and the third 10-9 for Court. However, I see Court fighting too patiently, which is something he needs to change if he wants to have more success.

Close fight but after re-watching it I see how Ring edged out round one and won round two for sure. He got beat at the end of round three and I think the last part of fights is always what people remember the most. In the end McGee said before the fight he would not leave it to the judges and then he did.
