Koga -Too Rude - I didnt watch the fight, so I cant comment on the particulars of it, but idk how people are defending it regardless of what happened in the fight. The promotion shouldnt have the power to overturn outcomes of fights or declare them no contests, that should be left up to dedicated governing bodies. (unless I read this all wrong, it seems One did this interally)
Imagine if the UFC had this ability. Their big champion loses a close decision and they come back and declare the bout a NC, pull the title and schedule a rematch. The MMA world would lose its fucking mind!
Again, I didnt see the fight, Im not commenting on the fight. Im just saying, in general, a promotion shouldnt have this power. It opens the door to serious corruption and is a clear conflict of interest.
Insightful post, what is this One governing body you are referring to?
Im talking generally, not really on topic about this particular fight.
Governing body like an athletic commission or whatever kind of regulatory agency oversees the bouts.
No fight promoter/promotion should be able to overturn a bouts result, regardless of how close it was or how the judging was.
