Dana White: Don't like the officiating in MMA? Call Keith Kizer!


Props: Cagewriter


"When you watch a fight like [Ortiz vs. Griffin 2] and you hear a 30-27 score, I don't even know, I'm so exhausted by this whole thing. It's tiring. It's terrible. These athletic commissions need to start looking at this and figure out what they're going to do. It has nothing to do with me. You should see the emails I get, 'You scumbag, you're just like Don King.' That's what people think. People think that we pick who's going to win or lose and tell the commission to do it. Talk to (Executive Director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission) Keith Kizer. He's the guy you want to ask questions to. Call Keith Kizer and ask him, what can we do to fix the judging and scoring?"

UFC President Dana White seems to be at his wit's end trying to find a solution to the questionable judging that has plagued the UFC and mixed martial arts as a whole in recent months. While not as controversial as the decision in "Machida vs. Shogun" back at UFC 104, there were more than a few eyebrows raised at the 30-27 issued in the Tito Ortiz vs. Forrest Griffin rematch on Nov. 21. The shoddy judging may be motivating fighters to try and finish their fights, but will it motivate you to call the NSAC and pitch a fit?
