MMA Judges Control Outcomes

With another UFC event upon us tomorrow let's first revisit the last event, UFC 131.  Yes, you guessed it the judges completely bombed on another decision.  Darren Elkins was awarded a unanimous decision over Michihiro Omigawa.  Not only was this baffling but one judge called it 30-27, all three rounds in favor of Elkins when clearly this was not the case.  So lopsided that UFC president Dana White said, "I don't know what the fuck in the world that guy was seeing.  He should never judge a fight again, ever."  More baffling is the fact that the judges for the first time had cageside monitors to get closer views of the action.  Guess Dana White is right when he says to his fighters don't leave it in the hands of the judges.  Maybe Dana realizes this fixing by the judges is making a mockery of this truly awesome sport.
