The Nevada State Athletic Commission’s executive director remains confident in the performance of his officials despite another controversial set of scores at UFC 167.

In the headliner of the UFC’s 20th anniversary event, judges Tony Weeks and Sal D’Amato handed down tallies of 48-47 in favor of Georges St-Pierre, who retained his welterweight title over Johny Hendricks. A third judge, Glenn Trowbridge, saw the fight as 48-47 for Hendricks...

I knew it was going split.
I thought Gus vs Jones was more closer

Its not the judgement as round by round it was close. Overall is different. Its the 10 point must system that is faulty.

Of course he doesn't. He never does. It's a close fight, I get that. Let's not forget about all the other bs decisions we have to live with though. Kizer has to go. Why does no one with the power to do it not see that?

from what I understand, Keizer is a politician and he's in good with the other politicians in the state. They'd be the only ones to vote him out and prize fighting isn't high on their overall priority list.

I kind of relate his position to that of the worst thing in hockey, Gary Bettman. He makes the owners money and only has to really listen to 8 of them...as long as those 8 or so are happy, he keeps his job even though he is pretty incompetent

Because the people with the power to do it don't care about the integrity of the fight game.

The only way the governor would take action on this is if Dana White decided to stop going to Nevada. Once the venues, food distributors, beer companies, ect. felt the sting of the drop in revenue, they would contact the governor.

Then and only then would he take action.

It wasn't nearly as bad of a decision as people are making it seem.

I thought it was a bad decision until I watched it back with no emotion, then you could clearly see how gsp won the fight when judged on a round by round basis. I think most people should watch it again and I bet most change their opinion

I actually went back and did the same thing and came to the same conclusion.

When it happened live, I think people though Hendricks won for a few reasons:

1. He looked so calm in there, like he was taking a stroll in the park.
2. He did better than expected and better than people usually do.
3. GSP looked busted up after the fight.
4. Everyone likes an underdog

But after re-watching the fight, I scored rounds 1, 3, and 5 for GSP. I think that's totally the right call. Honestly, round 2 was extremely close as well and Hendricks only won that round because he wobbled GSP.

I couldn't agree more.
