Robert Bennett appointed new Executive Director of Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC)

NSAC

Sorry to all you "Big Country" fans, but Roy Nelson didn't get the job.

The search is over.

Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has a new Executive Director, roughly two months after Keith Kizer stepped down from the position to pursue other interests. Taking his place will be former FBI agent and current boxing judge Robert Bennett, selected from an initial pool of 375 candidates.

Bennett will begin his job in May and will earn $94,000 per annum, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Kizer's resignation was likely music to the ears of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White, who has been openly critical of the former head cheese -- and the commission in general -- for a litany of issues, least of which is scoring.

This bizarre decision certainly didn't help.

Bennett should expect to be bombarded with all sorts of outstanding combat sports issues, like the current state of drug testing. How successful he can be turning things around in "Sin City" remains to be seen, but if he fails, we always have a "f---ing moron" to fall back on.
