Saturday at WSoF 2, during Andrei Arlovski vs. Anthony Johnson, the first round appeared to last 8-9 seconds longer than the mandated five minutes. Mixed martial arts is a game that is won from a strike or submission being a fraction of an inch into the right place, and as well seconds matter. In this case, Arlovksi received a damaging blow after the five minute mark, and ended up losing a three round decision.
Arlovski's team, Jackson's MMA, posted a complaint, via Facebook.

The NJ athletic commission was worried about the World Series of Fighting getting a new canvas and new corner pads for the cage they almost canceled the fight Saturday night. Unfortunately they forgot to get a time keeper that was trained properly. 1st round 5min 8 sec in the Andrei fight. A devastating blow was landed after the 5min mark. It's amazing how so much time is spent with over regulating but the simple things can cost dearly.
