“I’m not a judge, but when I think something is wrong and it needs to be righted… he’s here and he got paid his win bonus,” said UFC president Dana White at the UFC 144 post-fight press conference in Saitama, Japan, on Saturday night.

White has never been one to hold his tongue, and when it comes to referees and judges, he’s been much more than vocal. He’s been a virtual vuvuzela, bringing attention to one of the more desperate issues in mixed martial arts in need of an overhaul.

The UFC exec was answering a question about what he thought of Takeya Mizugaki’s fight.

Reed Rothchild -  It's time for the UFC to have it's own judges and refs, IMHO Phone Post

 And then be banned from competing in every state/country with its own commission.

You sound like a great business man.

Sometimes is very cool just to do the right thing. It is kind of nice that more often then not the UFC (and Dana specifically) succeeds in this. This was obviously the blatant robbery of the night (that nobody is talking about).

As for referees,the UFC does have a chance in ''young'' markets. The should set up a rules and referee commission,develop and education package,sponsor good referees like Herb Dean to give workshops and training and act as liaisons between the Ufc/mma rules commission and the new commissions that will get set up in these countries.

Yes there will be some questions about impartiality if you subsides part of the budget for training ''unbiased'' referees /judges but this will fade in the end because the new organizations supporting them will wholly independent (control them with a audit type system).

It will not stop the ''rot'' in America but it will at least confront the most backward looking elements of the Nevada athletic commission to ''modernize'' and make more of a priority of MMA judging.

What you got against the refs that the Tokyo Athletic Commission put in place for the event?

Dana's usually good about the win bonus when there's an outright robbery.

They need a whole program to grade and rate people. They need to have fighting experience. And they need to use more judges across MMA orgs so that people can grade out well and move up to the big show.

I don;t know what the process is now, seems non-existant.
